With the help of the good Dr. @Z0ltanNagy of @cockrellschool of engineering, we’re getting set up to measure the U Values of different wall assemblies in our office building. Remember, R Values are not actually heat flux measurements. They represent resistance to heat flow, which is not something taught in thermodynamics or physics classes. R Values are consumerized numbers to make products look better (hence the higher number playing with your psychology rather than the inverse lower number with the more meaningful U Values). Making quantitative heat flux measurements (U Values) is a great way to understand, at a detailed level, how an assembly is performing in its conditions. Excited to see the data! .
Dare we say signs of a highly-anticipated end to another brutally hot summer are here!! ☀️💦
While you might already be in a pumpkin spice state of mind, don’t forget how unforgiving each of our wild Texas seasons can be in their own way.

Sprayfoam insulation fills gaps in your home’s structure more effectively than other insulation methods. Air can leak through these gaps, causing your HVAC system to work harder and use more energy to heat and cool your home. The high R-value of closed cell spray foam insulation can provide even more energy savings by better retaining heat in your home.
Few facts about foam insulation~
* It has a high R-value.
* It doesn't settle.
* It expands and conforms to any space.
* It prevents air leakage.
* It minimizes the growth of mold and mildew.
* It reduces drafts and noise.
* It's good at keeping out insects and other pests.
Hurricane season is alive & well in the Lowcountry 🌪️ Thankfully, closed cell spray foam can help protect your home when the winds & waters pick up.

Determined to build an energy efficient home, this builder knew spray foam was the only way to go to please his homeowner. ✔️keeps conditioned air in
✔️keeps dust + pollen out
✔️reduces energy loss
✔️increases HVAC lifespan
Ready to make the switch, yet??
Honestly, don't need a filter to see the difference between these photos. I got a good start on the insulation in my attic today. Previously, the insulation was r-9.6, which is thinner than standard wall insulation. I have replaced it with r-30. And the 'vapor barrier' used was newspaper. So now I have a nice plastic sheeting, and have reclaimed a whole heap of newspaper from 1962. Gotta catch up on the news!

In the previous blog post, "The Dirt on Under Slab and Perimeter Insulation Part 1", we discussed the importance of insulating the perimeter of your foundation. In the second part of this blog, we're diving into the importance of insulating under slab, and how different factors of basements can affect the insulation (moisture, loss of heat, etc). See more here! http://ow.ly/lXIU50vyAaX #underslab#insulation#perimeterfoundation#basementfloors#rvalue#compressiveresistance
When it comes to insulating under slab and around the perimeter of your foundation, it's important to keep these key factors in mind: r-value and compressive resistance. Luckily, we've got a variety of insulation products that vary in compressive resistance and r-value, so you can find the right fit for your project. To read more on the nitty gritty of installing perimeter foundation insulation, check out our great blog, "The Dirt on Under Slab and Perimeter Insulation Part 1" http://ow.ly/GdVn50vxCnv #underslab#thedirt#insulation#perimeterfoundation#sustainability#rvalue#compressiveresistance
As summer rages on, don't you wish your home felt as refreshing as as a winter day? Good news: it can! ❄️ New insulation can regulate indoor temperatures to help keep your home as cool as you want it to be. ⠀

Avoid a future building nightmares by making this 1 decision: insulate subfloors with closed cell spray foam only.⠀
All foam is not created equal when it comes to subfloors. Although it's a great insulator & sound abater, open cell foam can trap moisture within floor systems, causing wood to warp. Insulating subfloors with closed cell creates a seal preventing humid air from moving through the insulation & into your home. Plus, it's the only insulation approved by FEMA for flood prone areas!⠀
