Welcome to The Home Insulators of Irvington
Thank you for visiting The Home Insulators, Irvington’s top choice for professional home insulation products and services. Our reputation is built on providing excellent customer service to the residents of Irvington and greater Westchester county. We offer a wide variety of insulation products, and specialize in spray foam insulation which is a high-performance product that works extremely well in both new construction and older homes.
We are proud to offer our services in Irvington, named for author Washington Irving, and recognized by the National Register for Historic Places for its beautiful historic district. Residents of Irvington enjoy an active lifestyle ranging from shopping on Main Street to hiking along the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail. There are a wide variety of residences in Irvington, from beautiful manors and estates with amazing views of the Hudson River, to charming turn-of-the century cottages. Though there are some new commercial areas in Irvington, like the Bridge Street properties, much of the village was built before the 1970’s, and could benefit from new or upgraded insulation.
Schedule an Energy Audit Today
Call The Home Insulators today to schedule a free consultation with one of our energy auditors. During an energy audit, our trained staff will conduct a blower test to investigate which areas of your home are subject to heat loss or transfer. Based on this simple test, we will provide you with a detailed recommendation specific to your home’s energy needs, and explain the potential benefits of upgrading your insulation. We are available seven days per week in Irvington to answer your questions, and appointments are available during both the day and at night to accommodate your busy schedule.
Home insulation products are rated by their R-value, which is a measure of how resistant the material is to heat transfer. The second law of thermodynamics explains that heat seeks colder areas in your home during the winter, escaping outside due to inadequate insulation. In the summer, heat moves towards cooler, air-conditioned rooms. Higher R-value products provide better protection against this natural process, saving you money and keeping your home at a more consistent, conditioned temperature.
We are a bonded and licensed provider of home insulation products and services in Irvington. Our specialty is spray foam insulation, which has numerous benefits for homes in the Northeast. Spray foam insulation provides a complete thermal barrier that prevents heat from escaping your home in the winter, and from entering in the summer. Did you realize that nearly 50% of your monthly utility bill is affected by inadequate insulation, which requires your heating or air conditioning systems to work harder? Spray foam is a high performing product that creates an airtight seal that helps reduce your monthly energy bill. It has the highest R-value of any home insulation product on the market, and can be used in both older homes and new construction.
Types of Insulation
We also offer several other types of insulation, to meet every budget. These include batts and rolls insulation (or blanket insulation), blown-in or loose-fill insulation, and rigid board insulation. Each of these products can help meet a specific need in your home. A very cost-effective option for many of our customers involves upgrading just their attic insulation. Did you realize that most attics in older homes have very little insulation, and that this is a primary source of higher energy bills? Batts and rolls insulation or blown-in insulation can be installed in just one day, to help combat this problem. However, fiberglass, which is a preferred material for blanket or blown-in insulation, can be very difficult to work with, and can cause skin irritation. And, traditional insulation that is installed incorrectly can be 50% less effective than professionally installed products. Trust The Home Insulators to get the job done right the first time.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam insulation is made of two different chemicals that are combined and sprayed through a special hose. The foam is completely bio-safe and expands over 100 times its original volume to completely fill all the spaces between the studs and joists in your home. After it dries, spray foam insulation retains its flexibility, so it can withstand both high and low temperatures without cracking, shifting, settling or degrading, and will continue to provide an airtight seal. It is extremely durable and is guaranteed for the life of your home. Our staff is trained and certified in the application of spray foam insulation, so you can expect to save up to 40% on your next energy bill!
Some of the other unique benefits of spray foam are:
*Widely tested for both new construction and older homes
*Can be inserted into wall cavities without permanently damaging the wall
*Provides a complete thermal barrier
*Guaranteed for the life of the building
*Waterproof, to prevent mold and mildew
*Reduced wear and tear for your heater and air-conditioner
*Lowers your carbon footprint
*Reduces allergens in your home
*Discourages pests and rodents from nesting
*Helps block outside noise
*Meets or exceeds building codes in New York
If you are planning on a remodel or new addition to your home, call us during the planning process to discuss rigid board insulation. This type of insulation is an excellent choice for new roofs or unfinished walls, and it can also be molded around air ducts or piping. We would be happy to provide you with a quote for either spray foam insulation or rigid board insulation for your remodel or new construction project.
