Welcome to The Home Insulators of Leonia
Many homes in Leonia have a lot to gain from having a free energy audit conducted to counter the issue of poor insulation. This may be the reason why your energy expenses are so high. More than 50% of your energy costs are more likely going to air-conditioning or heating because of the spaces in your home’s current insulation. One way you can lower your monthly energy bills is by significantly upgrading your home’s insulation. Improving energy effectiveness in your home is one of the simplest and most economical ways of reducing your energy expenses.
R-values are units used to measure how effective home insulation products are. R-values indicate an insulation material’s ability to resist the loss/transfer of heat. Homes in Leonia can benefit a lot from using home insulation products with high R-values. Physics explains the fact this way: heat flows towards the colder regions of the home like the attic or basement then finally moves outdoors. During warmer periods, the reverse happens. Hot air will flow indoors to your much cooler air-conditioned rooms. Improving insulation in your home will create a tight barrier against the transfer of heat, thus ensuring your home is more comfortable and energy saving too.
Types of Insulation
We offer several kinds of home insulation products and can work within any customer’s budget. We know it can be quite difficult to understand all the different options available, so we’ll work together with you to determine the best insulation product for your home as well as budget.
One of our professional energy auditors will visit your home and conduct a blower test. This easy process will help us know which spaces in your home can benefit from new products. Based on the results, our auditor will probably recommend one of the following insulation products to raise energy efficiency in your home.
*Batts and rolls insulation: This comes in a large roll to be cut and fit to fill tiny spaces. It is made of fiberglass, recycled paper, rock wool or cellulose. It comes in many different R-values and can be quite an economical product. Nevertheless, we advise you to ask a professional to help you with installation. Fiberglass can be quite difficult to work with, can cause irritation on skin, together with other health problems for those who will not be properly prepared. Also, when batt insulation is installed incorrectly, it can end up losing more than 50% of its efficiency because of gaps in coverage.
*Loose-fill/Blown-in insulation: This is a type of home insulation product made of tiny particles of rock wool, fiberglass, recycled material or cellulose. Blown-in insulation works great in many different spaces in the home, such as small spaces, wall cavities, areas that are hard to reach or unfinished attics. Our expert technicians are fully qualified in this procedure, and can install new home insulation products in your home in a day.
*Rigid board insulation is composed of rock wool or fiberglass, and comes in large, strong sheets that are cut to fit numerous spaces in your home. This is a great choice for construction projects starting out as well as unfinished walls or new roofs and can also be molded around air ducts or pipes.

*Spray foam insulation is the best type of home insulation product available. We are proud to offer the residents of Leonia this superior product that delivers an unmatched thermal and heat barrier.
