In 2009, Innovative Insulation Solutions Ltd. won the SPFA Industry Excellence Award in the Residential Wall Foam Category.  This project was the Yannell Zero Net Energy Home (“Home”) LEED Platinum building is a 2,675 square foot passive/active solar, geothermal heated and cooled, super-insulated, energy efficient single-family residence that was design as a model to showcase renewable energy.

The Home is situated on a “double-wide” southeast corner lot (50’ W x 110’ D). In order to maximize the south facing surface area of the home, the home was split into two wings that are connected by a hallway/entry foyer along the east side of the lot. The Home will feature a 10kW Solar Photovoltaic System, which will consist of 48 solar electric panels. There will also be four evacuated tube Solar Thermal Water Heating panels that will provide hot water for the Home.  The Home will be heated and cooled by a 3 well Geothermal system. A superior air tight thermal envelope, which minimizes the heating and cooling requirements of the home is central to the Home’s Zero Net Energy principle.

Closed Cell SPF insulation played three vital roles: Thermal Insulation, Vapor Retarder, and downsizing of construction materials.  The walls were sprayed to an R-30 and the roof structure was sprayed to R-40.  The Home had a pre-drywall blower door test, which its results showed the building envelop was extraordinary tight.  This was totally attributed to the Closed Cell SPF.

In 2006, Innovative Insulation Solutions Ltd. won the SPFA Industry Excellence Award in the Residential Wall Foam Category. The project was a four-story home in Evanston built in the late 1800s. Jim Blake, the homeowner, wanted the best insulation available in today’s market, therefore choosing Spray Foam Insulation. This project was a total gut/rehab of the building; all four floors were being re-built. The third floor of the home was all cathedral ceilings. A mixture of open cell and closed cell SPF was used. Closed Cell was used on all exterior walls and cathedral ceilings on the third floor. Open cell was used on the basement, first and second floor ceilings and all interior walls. The homeowner made the right choice using SPF insulation because of its superiority over all other insulation.

Tank

In 2008, Innovative Insulation Solutions Ltd. won the SPFA Industry Excellence Award in the Tanks and Vessels Category. This project was a 19,000-gallon Tank Insulation that required 2,000 square feet to be sprayed and coated. The Union Pacific Railroad has a locomotive engine oil recycling initiative in which they collect the used oil, treat the oil to remove water and then sell the treated used oil to recyclers. This recycling process always came to a stop during the winter season. Union Pacific RR decided to insulate the 19,000-gallon oil collection tank with spray foam, so the combination of the spray foam and the heater they installed will permit the oil recycling to continue year round. The Spray Foam was able to conform to all the unusual and irregular surface of the tank. Spray foam insulation was chosen because it was the only way to insulate the tank in an effective manner.
