Home insulation products are measured by something called an R-value. R-values are an indication of the insulation material’s ability to resist heat transfer/loss. Homes in Clarkstown can benefit greatly from using insulation products with high R-values. This is mainly because of the humidity, unpredictable climate and long cold winters. The laws of thermodynamics explain it this way: heat naturally flows toward colder areas of your home like your unheated attic/basement, and eventually flows outdoors. During the warm season, we expect the opposite to happen. Hot air from outside flows naturally into your cool air-conditioned rooms. Upgrading your home’s insulation will create a great barrier against heat transfer. This will ensure your home becomes more comfortable while helping you conserve energy.
Types of Insulation
Our company offers Clarkstown residents several kinds of home insulation products at various affordable prices. We know it can be hard to understand what product to choose, so we will help you to decide on the best insulation product for your home and budget.
We offer a free in-home energy audit before recommending what home insulation product is right for your home. Our energy expert will visit your home and conduct a blower test. This easy process will help us determine the areas in your home that are the least energy efficient. Based on the outcome of the blower test, our energy specialist will probably recommend one of the following kinds of home insulation products to raise energy efficiency in those spaces of your home.
Batts and rolls/blanket insulation
It is called “blanket” because it is a large roll that can be cut and fitted to fill spaces between attic studs. It is usually made of rock wool, cellulose, fiberglass, or recycled paper. It is available in different R-values, and is one of the most cost-effective kinds of insulation. Nonetheless, we advise you to ask a professional to help you with installation. Fiberglass can cause skin irritation along with other health issues and is also difficult to work with. When blanket insulation is installed improperly, it can end up losing 50% of its effectiveness because of spaces in coverage.
This is a type of home insulation product that is made of particles of materials like rock wool, fiberglass, recycled material or cellulose. This type of insulation is named after its application technique. It is typically blown into the material via a special hose. This product works great in different spaces in the home such as unfinished attics, hard-to-reach spaces, small spaces, new or existing wall cavities. Our technicians have undergone proper training before undertaking these processes, and can install blown insulation in your home in just a day.
Rigid board insulation
It is made of rock wool or fiberglass, and comes as large, strong sheets that are hand cut to fit different spaces in the home. Rigid board insulation is a good choice for construction projects just starting out as well as unfinished walls or new roofs. It can also be molded around pipes or air ducts. If you are planning a home addition or remodel, feel free to give us a call and we will give you a free quote on this product.
Spray foam insulation
This product is undoubtedly the best type of home insulation available for older as well as new homes. This product offers an unmatched heat and thermal barrier. Spray foam products have some of the highest R-values in the market. Spray foam is composed of two types of chemical materials that are mixed together, heated and then sprayed through a special hose. This foam is totally bio-safe and expands right away creating a seal that is airtight and has great insulation properties. Spray foam can be used between joists and studs all over the home, and can be used in existing walls as well. Our professionals usually drill a small hole into the wall, and then insert the spray foam to expand all through the wall. The small hole will then be patched to eliminate the need for the dust and difficulties that are often associated with knocking down walls.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
We recommend spray foam insulation to most of our Clarkstown clients. We consider this the best product to make your home more energy-efficient and comfortable. Spray foam is usually more expensive than other all of the other kinds of insulation products, but it tends to pay for itself in 3 years or less. This is because homeowners will end up saving close to 40% on their monthly heating and cooling expenses all through the year. Other advantages of spray foam include:
*Improvement in air quality
*A quiet home, reduced noise from outside
*Higher home resale value
*less pests and rodents
*less allergens in the home
