We are often asked if our spray foam impacts the environment in anyway. We are pleased to say our products cause ZERO HARM to the environment and in fact are the most environmentally friendly choice on the market.
Ty Pennington explains it best, watch to see how choosing Lapolla spray foam insulation will make a massive difference to your carbon emissions and the environment.
Lapolla’s 4G insulation is made from post-consumer recycled plastic. Post-consumer content is made from content already used, such as plastic bottles – diverting these materials from landfill and into a long-term insulation solution. Each 55-gallon drum of our 4G insulation is uses around 3,000 plastic bottles. Each home insulated with our spray foam could prevent up to 10,000 plastic bottles from going to landfill.
As part of our zero-waste movement for every barrel of Lapolla 4G insulation we plant 5 trees. You can rest assured that Lapolla are committed to making the planet healthier.
Each home produces around 10 tonnes Co2 emissions every year. Heating your home is essential but has a huge impact on the environment. The average UK family spends about £1200.00 a year on home utility bills. Energy generated for a single home by fossil fuels puts more carbon monoxide into the air than two average cars.
If you want to reduce your carbon footprint reducing your energy usage at home will make a considerable difference. Spray foam insulation creates an airtight seal, meaning your home will retain its heat and you will need to turn the heating on far less. Our customers have saved up to 50% off the cost of their heating bills – greatly reducing their carbon emissions.
Lapolla Spray Foams are safe for you, your home and the environment. Lapolla spray foams are water blown, and do not emit HFCs or HCFCs. Our insulation will actually improve your air quality, by reducing condensation and associated mould making your home a healthier environment.
Traditional insulation methods like fibreglass have a relatively short lifespan and need to be replaced every 10 years. Our spray foam comes with a lifetime guarantee – in the UK & Ireland the maximum guarantee we can provide is 25 years – however we are confident our spray foam will last for the lifetime of your roof. An investment in Lapolla insulation is one that will last, saving you money every year. Your home will remain energy efficient and produce less emissions long-term.
