Designing Spaces TV Program Features Spray Polyurethane Foam

“Designing Spaces,” the award-winning home improvement television series, aired as part of its annual “Think Green” series a segment highlighting the energy efficiency of spray polyurethane foam. The episode of “Designing Spaces” featuring spray foam insulation aired on April 26. The show will air again on Lifetime TV on May 22 at 7:30 a.m. (all time zones).

“Designing Spaces” partnered with the Spray Foam Coalition of the American Chemistry Council to help homeowners learn about the benefits of spray polyurethane foam. In the segment, homeowners Andy and Anitra Kitfield, along with their three children, welcome “Designing Spaces” as they update and insulate an upstairs room and their basement with spray polyurethane foam.

“It’s been really windy, so when it blows outside, we feel a draft inside. It stays cold,” says Anitra, describing the challenges the family has had maintaining a comfortable temperature indoors before the spray polyurethane foam is applied. Nova Spray Foam Insulation, a spray polyurethane foam contractor, comes to the rescue to help make the Kitfields’ home more comfortable and energy efficient. “Designing Spaces” shows how these professional contractors install the insulation, which also acts as an air barrier, to dramatically reduce the drafts that have been making the Kitfield’s house so chilly.

“Homeowners should choose spray foam because it’s highly effective and it’s energy-efficient. It’s going to keep your house warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, and overall, homeowners will find that they’ll save some money,” says Allyson Wilson of the American Chemistry Council, who helps detail the many benefits spray polyurethane foam offers to the homeowners in the episode.
