Fact is, it is initially more expensive to install but totally out performs Batts as well as other products and pays for itself in a few short years due to heavily reduced power bills.
Costs will come down to a meter square rate after reviewing 3 specific areas:
- Volume of Product
- Labour Costs
- Mobilisation Costs
Having done some research you would have found out the following:

New Build Construction
The construction of your new home can be a stressful and expensive consideration. Thoughts on structural and long term benefits may also be clouded by cost factors and time constraints so clueing yourself up on the things that return the essential results such as energy efficiency, good health, comfort and money savings.
Most Common New Build applications:
- Spray foam direct to underside/sub-roof of colour bond roofing. No sarking required
- Spray foam direct to underside/sub-roof of Tile roofing. Sarking is required by….say Boral Tiles for compliance and sign off
- By insulating the underside the attic space it is now conditioned. Big plus is that air-conditioning units may be downsized and ducting is located in Cool all year round temperatures not fighting the normal 60+ degree Celsius attic heat requiring units to work their ring out consistently chewing power
- Extraction fans such as Kitchen, laundry, bathrooms need to be vented out direct to eaves. Whirlybirds no longer required. Unvented attic assembly
- Under floor between Ground and floor above for acoustic reduction of – 37 decibels for improved acoustic privacy down stairs
- All external walls to virtually make your home into a giant Esky/Chilly Bin
- Floors. Most New builds are on a concrete pad but if not and have a raised timber floor then consideration is extremely important here
- Internal Walls. Unless sound/theatre or plumbing stack walls, most home owners use the cheaper fibre glass batts for the budget
Benefits of Unvented Attics
|Benefits of Unvented Attics|
Renovations / Additions / Custom Insulation
While renovating is the perfect time to retro-fit your project with Wall injected spray foam or sprayed in-place application. House extension? New Bathroom? Even if your just repainting or wall papering contact Easy Foam for a solution.
- Renovate – Insulate your current home while renovating using spray foam
- Addition – Insulate a new addition to your home using spray foam
- Custom – Insulating your new home using spray foam
Ceiling / Roof / Attic Insulation
Exfiltration is the uncontrolled leakage of conditioned air from inside the home to outside, Insulating the attic or roof with spray foam will drastically add to the roofs thermal resistance by eliminating the air's ability to move through the roof building envelope.
- Attic living space – insulate the underside of roof to create an unvented, conditioned attic to use as an extra living space
- Attic floor insulation – insulate the floor of your attic to keep the house below warm or cool (vented attic)
- Cathedral ceiling – insulate high ceilings and angled roofs with interesting shapes
Timber Under Floor Insulation
Home freezing in winter- Heating bills out of control?
A home with timber floors when insulated with our Spray Foam is massively warmer in winter and in conjunction with Good Drapes or effective thermal window coverings will not only improve your lifestyle but also slash the energy bill by half. In place permanently working for the lifetime of the building saving you money from day one keeping the family warm and snug with constant temperatures without the fluctuations and energy surges making high power bills a thing of the past
In one simple application:
Negates air leakage and thermal transfer stopping: draughts, insects, dust, mould spores, earthy smells, moisture, timber rot and sound reduction by minus 37 decibels or equivalent Rw 36 on 90mm stud assembly system.
Feel the difference under your feet – See the difference on your Energy Bills
Cold feet? Frozen toes? Huge Heating bills! Insulated timber floor are costing you serious money!. one of the easiest cost effective ways to save you money on heating is to have your underfloor insulated with spray foam. For a warm house, more money in your pocket, comfort and piece of mind. Have Easy Foam install spray foam on your timber underfloor.
Sub Floor warning for older homes
Please be mindful that in the event there may be large cracks in floor cavities which we cannot physically see, we take no responsibility for any contamination that may result from liquid material breaching these areas into living spaces. As the home owner, you would be the best judge of where these areas may exist or where creaky spots are so if you can identify these areas, we are more than willing the tape seal them prior to installation commencement.
In the scheme of things, if this occurs, it is seen by ALL people that the Spray Foam process is in fact actually doing its function and totaling Air Sealing every millimeter, nook and cranny of your home.
Our biggest fear is that if it breached a very large hole and there was say….a plasma TV / antique furniture or an item of great sentimental / financial value was contaminated….though it would not ruin anything, it may spoil your day and experience.
The soft, white flexible little bubbles of foam are easily removed with finger tips/nails or in crevices by way of a scraper and depending on the tint/shade/colour of the wood stain, may leave a light /cloudy residue on floor that the home owner can steel wool scour back excess and at worst, apply a coating of the matching stain over to blend with the surrounding.
- Timber Floors- Insulate under timber floors to minimize air leakage and keep your feet warm in winter
- Sub floor - to Minimal acoustic disruption and control temperature variances.
Basements & Other Spaces
Infiltration is the uncontrolled leakage of air into a building through cracks around doors, windows, electrical outlets and structural joints. Spray foam infiltrates these cracks and joints so air cannot pass between them creating a air-seal around plumbing and electrical joints containing the unconditioned air outside the structure.
- Basement or crawl space – insulate your crawl space ceiling for greater energy savings
- Hard-to-insulate spaces – insulate around windows and doors, plumbing, skylights and electrical boxes
Internal and External Wall Insulation
There are a variety of Easy Foam options when it comes to insulating your walls.
Many existing homes have no insulation what so ever within the external walls exposing the home to all elements making life a misery in terms of temperature transfer, mould ingress, condensation, dust, insects, and noise/sound control. Many older homes have sunken degraded useless insulation having turned to dust and now ineffective.
Without the need and expense to demolish, re-insulate, re-sheet, re-plaster and repaint these rooms to enable better energy efficiency you may want to look at this solution.
Have the wall insulation upgraded by cavity wall injection: See table
Icynene insulated external walls have higher thermal properties, reduce pollution inside your home and provide protection against noise pollution.
Easy Foam is able to insulate cavity and double brick walls through the mortar joints.
Insulating your internal walls with Easy Foam maximises your heating and cooling zones, minimizes mould and mildew by limiting moisture condensation while also reducing internal sound transfer.
Existing walls can be insulated through the gyprock or wall sheeting via 15mm drill points and un-sheeted gyprock walls are easily sprayed. Spray foam filled / Injected walls are an excellent cost effective alternative to Hebel or solid wall construction for food preparation areas consistent with National food safety standards 3.2.3 and 3.2.2 in construction.
