With the summer months bearing down on us, temperatures rising, and air conditioners working overtime to keep us all cool, it’s a great time to think about the energy efficiency of your home.
Did you know as much as 40% of a home’s energy is lost due to air infiltration? Gaps, holes and air leaks – which can be prevented – can make energy bills unnecessarily high and let valuable resources go to waste. You can find information and resources to help you plug those holes and air leaks on our newly redesigned and user-friendly website, whysprayfoam.org.
For this update, we wanted to:
- Make the site more engaging
- Enhance usability, especially for mobile users
- Continue to emphasize the importance of video content
- Educate readers about the benefits of spray polyurethane foam
Take a look around. We’re confident that you’ll find the same great resources as before — and now, they’ll be easier to access. Plus, the changes we’ve made will improve the experience of exploring the site. We hope you will agree!
The Spray Foam Coalition (SFC) was formed in December 2010 under the American Chemistry Council’s Center for Polyurethanes Industry (CPI). The SFC is a dynamic organization of companies that produce and sell polyurethane spray foam insulation systems and the chemicals and equipment necessary for their use. SFC’s mission is to champion the use of spray polyurethane foam in North America by promoting its energy, performance, and economic benefits as well as its other sustainable attributes. The SFC provides a forum to conduct research, to advocate for science-based public policy, excellence in safety, stewardship, training, and to advance technical knowledge.
