Spray Polyurethane Foam SPF Insulation
Indoor Air Quality

With the rapid increase in the "Green" movement and the push for more energy efficient homes, spray polyurethane foam SPF insulation is growing substantially. As with most new building products, the industry has had its own set of unique challenges that include the recognized need for training and certification for installers. 

Along with the recognized need for training are the results of inadequate applicator training, nuisance odors and occupant sensitivity. These occupant related complaints have led to a rise in SPF insulation investigations by many who have little understanding of SPF insulation and how it can alter the indoor environment even when correctly installed.

Spray Polyurethane Foam SPF Insulation
Ventilation and Indoor Air Quality

This presentation will be discussing the issues with the reduction of the necessary natural or passive ventilation in a home that is substantially reduced when SPF insulation is installed. 

The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) have had a residential ventilation standard since 2003, ASHRAE 62.2. 

So while a home’s recommended minimum ventilation rate remained unchanged for many years, ASHRAE has recognized the tighter construction of today’s homes and 10 years after the initial ASHRAE 62.2, there are new and controversial changes to the 2013 version of ASHRAE 62.2.
