An R-value is an indication of an insulation material’s ability to resist heat loss and heat transfer. Laws in physics state that heat usually moves towards colder areas such as the attic or basement, and finally seeps outdoors. During the warm season, heat moves indoors to your air-conditioned rooms. Quality home insulation blocks unnecessary heat transfer, thus making your home comfortable and saves energy at the same time.
Types of Insulation
We offer our Haverstraw residents numerous types of home insulation products. It can be confusing to grasp all the different options available, but we can help you choose the best product suited for your home and budget.
One of our friendly energy auditors will come and conduct a blower test in your home. This test helps our technicians determine which areas in the home could largely benefit from improved insulation. Our auditor may then recommend a certain type of insulation product based on the results of the blower test. The following may be up for consideration:
*Batts and rolls insulation,
It is also known as blanket insulation. It is called “blanket” because it comes in a large roll that is cut and fit in various spaces in the home such as your attic studs. This type of insulation is made of rock wool, cellulose, fiberglass, or recycled paper. It has different R-values, and can be a good cost-effective solution. Nevertheless, we suggest you ask a professional to help with installation. Materials like fiberglass can cause skin irritation, can be dangerous to work with, and can cause other severe health issues if not handled properly. Also, if it is installed improperly, it can lose more than 50% of its effectiveness thanks to the gaps in coverage.
This is a type of home insulation product made up of particles such as recycled material cellulose, rock wool or fiberglass. It is named according to its application technique- blowing the material through a specialized hose. This product works well in different spaces such as small spaces, areas that are hard to reach, new or existing wall cavities and unfinished attics.
*Rigid board insulation
This one is made of rock wool or fiberglass and comes in sturdy, large sheets that are cut by hand to fit a variety of spaces in your home. Rigid board insulation is a great option for construction projects just starting out including unfinished walls or new roofs, and can also be molded around air ducts or pipes.

*Spray foam insulation
This is the best type of insulation on market for old and new homes. We are proud to offer Haverstraw residents with this quality product that guarantees an incomparable heat and thermal barrier. These insulation products have the highest R-value in the market. Spray foam is made of two different chemical materials that are mixed, heated and finally sprayed through a special hose. The bio-safe foam expands at once and creates an airtight seal with exceptional insulation properties. Spray foam is good for use between joists and studs all over the home, and is good for use in existing walls. The spray foam is inserted in a drilled hole in the wall and expands behind the wall. The small hole will then be patched, eliminating the dust and difficulty associated with knocking down walls.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
We recommend spray foam insulation as the best choice for your home insulation needs. You will find that this type of insulation is more expensive, but tends to pay for itself in less than 3 years of purchase. We say yes to spray foam because it not only makes the home more comfortable, but also increases energy efficiency. You will find a drastic change in your energy bills once you have spray foam insulation. Our experts can install this product for you in a day.
