Schedule Your Free Energy Audit Today
Are you concerned about your family’s comfort during long winters and hot, humid summers? Give us a call today to schedule a free energy audit to check your insulation. Many older homes have inadequate insulation, installed decades ago, that has long since degraded and no longer provides a thermal barrier. As a result, over 50% of your monthly utility bill is most likely going towards your heating costs in the winter, or air-conditioning costs in the summer.
To address this situation, call us to schedule an appointment with one of our energy auditors. Our friendly and professional auditors will come to your home to conduct a blower test. This very simple procedure will enable us to determine which areas in your home have inadequate insulation. Based on the results of this test, we can recommend a number of different solutions that will increase your home’s energy efficiency.
Home insulation products are rated by their R-value, which describes the insulation’s material’s resistance to heat transfer. Heat transfer is one of the laws of thermodynamics, which states that heat naturally moves from a higher temperature area to a lower temperature area. During the winter, heat is lost from your warm heated rooms through gaps in your home insulation, towards the cold outdoors. In the summer, the heat transfers from outdoors into your cool air-conditioned rooms. During both of these times, your heating or air-conditioning system is working harder to combat the natural process of heat transfer, and your energy bills are increasing. Upgrading your home’s insulation provides a better barrier against heat transfer, and makes your home more comfortable, while simultaneously conserving energy.
Types of Insulation
We understand that each client is unique, so offer a wide variety of home insulation products to meet every need and budget. The most common types of home insulation products are:
*Batt and Roll Insulation. This is a very cost-effective solution, also known as blanket insulation. Batts and rolls comes in a large roll that is cut and fit by hand to cover the space between your attic studs, or other spaces in your home. Batt insulation is typically made of fiberglass, cellulose, rock wool or even recycled paper. This type of insulation comes in a wide variety of widths and thicknesses, and has a range of R-values. We recommend professional installation for our clients that choose this insulation. Fiberglass and rock wool can cause skin irritation. In addition, if batt insulation is not installed correctly, it can leave gaps that reduce its efficiency by 50% or more.
*Blown-in/Loose-fill Insulation. As the name suggests, this type of insulation consists of small pieces of insulation material that are blown through a special hose by one of our trained installers. Blown-in insulation works extremely well in small and hard-to-reach spaces, such as attic dormers, and wall cavities. Our professional technicians are experts at this process, and can install new loose-fill insulation in your home in just one day.
*Rigid Board Insulation. This insulation product is formed into large and sturdy sheets of either fiberglass or rock wool. The boards are then cut by hand to fit the various spaces that need insulating. Rigid board insulation is an excellent choice for new construction projects, including new roofs and unfinished walls. It can also be molded around air ducts or piping. If you are considering a remodel or home addition, contact us today for a free quote.
*Spray foam insulation is a superior insulation product. We are very proud to offer spray foam insulation to the residents of Harrison, because it creates an unsurpassed heat and thermal barrier with the highest R-values available on the market today. Spray foam insulation is created by mixing and heating two different types of chemical materials. This mixture is then sprayed through a specialized hose, where it expands immediately to create an airtight seal with amazing insulation properties. The foam is completely bio-safe, and stops heated or cooled air from escaping your home, with virtually no leakage.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
All insulation products are designed to prevent heat transfer, and help you save money on your energy bills. Spray foam is typically more expensive than other types of home insulation, but this is because it provides the greatest protection for the money. Spray foam insulation generally pays for itself in under three years, because your energy bills will be up to 40% lower after installation. Some of the other unique benefits of spray foam include:
*Higher resale value
*Improved air quality and fewer allergens
*Quieter inside your home
*Fewer pests and rodents
