With up to 40% of your home's energy being lost through air leakage, minimizing this will have a dramatic and immediate and consistent impact on your power bills. When your home isn't sealed appropriately, your air-conditioner and heater have to work harder to keep a comfortable temperature, costing you money. Just adding more traditional insulation to increase the r-value won't make any positive change to the amount of air lost and you home will still leak money.
This is where Easy Foam works. Icynene spray foam insulation plugs these gaps, it fills all the crevices and cracks that conventional insulation can't. Creating a continuous air barrier seal, it won't sag or settle limiting air leakage and leading to massive energy cost savings. Many households see up to 50% savings on their power bills.
Benefits for People with Allergies, Asthma, and Respiratory Diseases
Creating a healthy home for your family is important. With concerns over allergies, toxic chemicals and air pollution, using healthy products in our homes is becoming a greater priority for many of us.
Easy Foam's spray insulation takes the worry out of this on three fronts:
- improved air quality
- minimising mould and mildew
- it is a low emission material
Creating an air barrier in your building envelope stops the airborne pollutants and allergens from entering your home. For families dealing with allergies, hay fever and asthma, an insulating product which limits
- dust and dirt
- moisture and mould
- carbon monoxide
has a significant impact of health and well-being.
Mould and mildew growth is also a very serious concern for many families. The release of dangerous spores and mycotoxins can lead to hypersensitivity showing up in symptoms such as aggravated asthma, increased allergic reactions, itchy and watery eyes, sneezing and coughing. Conventional insulation actually absorbs and holds onto moisture, becoming the perfect environment for mould to flourish.
Icynene's spray foam does the exact opposite. The open-cell products breathe, allow all moisture to evaporate and the closed-cell products resist water penetration.
Icynene is also categorized as a Low Emitting Material, meaning it has no long term VOC emissions. The insulation is 100% water blown so there are no HFC's or PBDE's released in the application process making it the healthy choice for your home.
Icynene helps you insulate your building and produce an healthy home by minimizing indoor air pollution. By delivering a continuous thermal barrier that will seal around plumbing, vents and electrical outlets. Icynene will fill all voids that normally allow air leakage.
Airborne allergens, drafts and air leakage can reduce air quality dramatically. using Icynene you can keep all these pollutants out of your home and control the air that enters your home making sure you and your family are kept safe and sound.
By controlling the air leakage within the building, home owners suffering from allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems can reduce the amount of attacks they suffer. Icynene can seal the building envelope by stopping random air leakage, the penetration of dust, allergens and pollutants. This will allow you to control the environment in which you live.
Existing wall Cavity Insulation
The external walls of thousands of existing homes have No insulation what so ever and if they have it has degraded to the point of non-existence.
Without the necessity of turning your home into a construction site by stripping out the old walls and re-insulating, re-sheeting, re-stopping and painting, you may consider thermally protecting the external walls of your home with spray foam insulation via 12mm injection holes to the gyprock sheeting creating a more thermally efficient home while saving on power bills and improved sound proofing by up to 75%.

Timber Under Floor Insulation
Home freezing in Winter? Power Bills Too High?
Feel the difference under foot...see the difference on your energy bills.
A home with timber under floors when insulated with spray foam is massively warmer in winter.
In one simple application:
- Provides a superior Thermal insulation barrier
- Negates Air leakage and thermal transfer
- Reduces acoustic sound by 75%
- Stops freezing droughts
- Stops earthy smells and dust
- Stops insects
- Stops Mould ingress and timber rot
- Energy efficient from day one.
- Enjoy greater comfort, save money and help the environment.
- All future power bills slashed by up to 50% provided …..good thermal window/ ranch slider coverings are present. (Good old fashion double skin thermal drapes are my pick)
Average install takes 3 to 4 hours to complete.
Insulation coverage to joists at a nominal thickness of 75mm returning an R value of 2.0.
Require minimum of half a meter/50cm under floor clearance.
