The chief of our insulation team still talks about Mr. Bogdan, who still asks about Sean and how the team is doing whenever we are in Southwark! Mr. Bogdan didn’t know what type of insulation to choose until he had a free survey from Sean and decided Icynene is the product to have in his loft.
One winter later, he called us to speak about the savings he did with energy and about some other friends of his that also asked what Icynene is! Evergreen Power is happy to be in Dulwich, Peckham and Camberwell, and other parts of the Southwark County!
As one of the London boroughs that were the engine of the industrial revolution back in the 1800’s, Southwark is an area where building houses is an industry with a long tradition. It is one of the first places in the world where insulation was used, and we are talking about homes built more than one century ago. Southwark is the borough where the revolutionary insulation ideas of Evergreen Power were quickly adopted and highly valued.
Is open cell spray foam the right solution for Southwark?
The open cell spray foam is used in the United States since the 60’s, mostly for insulating industrial warehouses and commercial premises. The roof insulating systems evolved a lot during the 70’s. In Southwark, home builders started to replace cellulose and polyurethane with spray foam at a relatively late date. Spray foams are around since 1984. Only during the recent years, people in Southwark realised the dangers of polyurethane and cellulose insulation.
How can spray foam reduce heat loss and condensation in buildings?
– Spray foam generates a continuous air barrier
– It prevents condensation, an important aspect for the Southwark houses
– It prevents heat loss
– It keeps the cold air in the house during the summer, even during hot weather
Open cell spray foam from Icynene applied on the interior of a loft will prevent condensation. It means ventilation is not required anymore for protecting the insulation. Of course, ventilation is required for health considerations still.
In the case of a moderate climate like the one in Southwark, standard insulation methods require an anti-condensation foil. It is the reason for which we recommend Icynene spray foam insulation for lofts and underfloors, and closed cell polyurethane foam spray for exterior insulation.
Spray foam is suited particularly for wooden lofts, which are specific for the SE5 postcode (Camberwell, Denmark Hill, Peckham). The houses situated closer to Central London, mostly in SE15 postcode are built with cavity walls. Therefore, for houses in Bermondsey, Surrey Quays and even Herne Hill and Dulwich Village are perfect for closed cell spray foam insulation.
