Isolation Multi-Services is Montreal’s leading provider of insulation, fireproofing, and soundproofing services, and we have a lot of clients who are looking to keep their homes safe and efficient by installing polyurethane insulation. Although most are aware that it is one of the safest and most efficient choices for your home, many are still not keen on the details of this substance. Here are the most common questions about polyurethane that we get from customers:

How efficient is it?

Most people in the local area are as dedicated to clean energy and keeping the environment safe as we are. This means that they want the most efficient way to use energy in their homes to ensure that they don’t waste. In terms of thermal resistance per inch, polyurethane is the most efficient insulation product on the market. Its R value of 6-7 per inch is more than double that of fiberglass.

Is it safe for my health?

Of course the health of your family is your utmost concern and with media stories about health effects of certain home products many people are getting worried. Those fears shouldn’t pertain to polyurethane though. It is an inert substance and doesn’t release and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Having it in your home will not pose any health issues.

Do I have to leave my house when you install it?

This is a pretty common question because people don’t want their home lives to be interrupted. The answer is “it depends.” If you are having a room such as the basement or the attic insulated, then you do not have to leave. We however recommend that children are not present. Government regulations require a certain standard of ventilation, so you may have to exit depending on where the work is taking place.

Having insulation installed in your home is the best way to increase your energy efficiency and protect your home from the weather outside, and finding the right company to do it is essential.
