Rigid Foam Insulation from Dr. Energy Saver St. Louis

Rigid foam can easily be cut to fit the needs of the space and provide an airtight insulation solution.

Dr. Energy Saver St. Louis installs rigid foam insulation for a variety of applications, including the attic, basement and crawl space. Rigid foam is a popular insulating product for its durability, high insulating value and versatility. Unlike fiberglass batt insulation, rigid foam boards never lose insulating value by settling or compressing. Foam boards shed water instead of soaking it up like cellulose and fiberglass insulation do and foam insulation won't support mold or provide a home for mice, insects and other pests.

Types of rigid foam insulation

Rigid foam insulation provides high insulating value with little thickness, but not all rigid foam performs the same. The experts at Dr. Energy Saver St. Louis can help you choose the best rigid foam for the area of your house that needs insulating.

  • Polyisocyanurate (often referred to as polyiso) has the highest R-value per inch of any rigid foam insulation. Polyiso is a closed-cell rigid insulation that can be used in a variety of applications, including cavity walls, stud walls, masonry walls and vaulted ceilings.
  • Extruded polystyrene (XPS) is a closed-cell insulation, usually pink or blue in color, with a smooth plastic surface. The closed-cell structure of XPS foam board provides a consistent R-value of R-5 per inch regardless of density.
  • Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is an inexpensive insulation material that meets or exceeds all required building and energy codes. EPS rigid insulation is the most versatile of the three rigid foam insulation options and can be used for insulating attics, walls and below-grade areas.

SilverGlo™ sets a new standard for rigid foam insulation

Rigid Foam Insulation from Dr. Energy Saver St. Louis

SilverGlo™ foam panels do an excellent job of insulating basement and crawl space walls.

Recognizing the critical role that rigid foam insulation plays in improving home energy performance, Dr. Energy Saver has developed its own brand of rigid foam insulation. SilverGlo™ insulation can be used to insulate the crawl space or basement, as well as for insulating an attic or garage. The foam boards are easy to cut and install, reducing the time it takes for your insulation work to be completed.

The first thing you notice about SilverGlo™ is that it looks different from other brands of rigid foam insulation. When SilverGlo™ boards are made, they are infused with graphite powder to improve insulating value.

Each board also has a reflective coating that acts as an effective radiant barrier. A 2-in.-thick board is rated at R-9, or R-11 if there's an air space adjacent to the radiant barrier. Thicker boards are also available for applications where more R-value is required. By taping the seams between the boards, our technicians create an effective air barrier, providing yet another energy-saving feature.
