Do you ever wonder why your home energy bill is so high? This is because most homes have inadequate insulation, so homeowners spend up to 50% of their monthly energy bill on heating or cooling. To reduce your monthly utility bill significantly, consider upgrading your home insulation. This is the easiest and most cost-effective way to increase your home’s energy efficiency.
Let’s go over some home insulation basics. The effectiveness of insulation is measured by R-values, which is an indication of the material’s resistance to thermal transfer, or heat flow. A higher R-value means the insulation product will provide better protection against heat transfer than products with a lower R-value. Where you live also is an important factor in selecting home insulation products. A home in Southern California will require a product with a lower R-value than a home in the Northeast that experiences four seasons and humidity. During the winter, heat is lost through the unheated spaces in your attic or basement, because of the inadequate insulation. In the summer, heat transfers in to the cool spots in your home, making your air conditioner work harder. The primary goal of insulation is to minimize the movement of heat coming in and out of your home. This lowers your energy bill and can contribute to a greener planet by conserving resources.
Types of Insulation
At The Home Insulators, we offer a wide variety of home insulation products and a knowledgeable staff that is available to answer all of your questions. Home insulation products are available to fit every budget. If you are not sure what you need, call us today to schedule an appointment with one of our trained auditors. During the free consultation, one of our qualified energy auditors will conduct a simple blower test to assess the overall energy efficiency of your home. This simple test points out the areas in your home that could benefit from sealing and additional thermal barriers. The Home Insulator auditor will provide you with a free, no obligation estimate that may recommend one of these home insulation products:
*Batts and Rolls: Typically made of fiberglass, rock wool, or cellulose, and available in various thicknesses and widths to fit all standard and non-standard spaces in attics, basements and walls. Batts and rolls are also called blanket insulation because they can be rolled into the needed spaces.
*Blown-in/Loose-fill: Specifically designed for unfinished attics, and small spaces that are difficult to reach. Blown-in insulation requires a special hose and truck.
*Rigid Foam Sheathing: Used for new home construction, or home remodels. This is a higher level R-value product that offers good thermal efficiency and can be used in both interior or exterior applications.
A Superior Solution
The Home Insulators recommend spray foam as the superior choice to reduce your monthly heating and cooling bills. Spray foam is more costly than the insulation products mentioned above, but it will generally pay for itself in 3 years or less. According to the Department of Energy, estimates are that your home energy bill can be lowered by up to 40% based on using proper insulation. Spray foam insulation is composed of two different types of chemicals that are combined, heated, and then sprayed through a special hose. This bio-safe foam then immediately begins to expand from 50 to 100 times its original size. The foam spreads out and completely covers the area targeted. When spray foam hardens, it leaves an airtight seal. Other types of insulation may leave gaps, especially if not professionally installed.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
The spray foam that The Home Insulators utilizes has the highest R-vale available commercially at 6.88 per inch. When installed by our professional staff, this foam creates a complete thermal seal that provides unsurpassed insulation. This type of insulation is highly recommended in Westchester County because it can help reduce moisture and may eliminate the need for air filtration by it reducing the amount of allergens that are able to get into the house. Professionally applied spray foam leads to reduced thermal bridging throughout the house. Other benefits include:
*Lowered home energy bill up to 30% to 40% each month
*Less noise from outside
*Improved air quality
*Higher resale value
*Minimal impact on house, no need to break through walls.
*Discourages the nesting of insects and rodents
