Sir, I began my spray foam career in June of 2001. I was hired as a helper, and worked my way up to a certified spray foam applicator and crew leader. We were located in South Florida, and for 10 months out of the year the heat in the attics was terrible. We were constantly exhausted, suffered near heat strokes, and could spray maybe 20 to 30 minutes at a time, and then exit the spray area to rest. We rotated 3 to 4 sprayers in order to get jobs done. We were introduced to a Chill Box in 2001, an air-conditioned system that moved air through 300' of air line to our hoods. At times the Florida attics were 140 to 150 degrees, yet we had cool air in our hoods. We stopped using the small air compressors like Bullard, the freeze vests, ice chests, and just used the Chill Boxes. In just a few weeks, we were able to spray almost twice as much foam, and we made a lot more money. We could stay in the hot attics for hours. During the hot summer months, we were the only company working, doing everyone's retro work. Other sprayers tried to come to work for us. We went from 4 men on a truck to 2 men, and did twice as much work. You can call me to ask any questions. Mat Frauuenhofer (239) 503-5103
