Welcome to The Home Insulators of Mamaroneck
Mamaroneck is a town with a rich history going back 350 years, and as such many of the homes, buildings and other structures are classic older constructions. It’s a great feeling to live in a classic home, the only problem is temperature regulation. Older homes can get colder in winter and hotter in summer due to the fact they have old-fashioned or non-existent insulation. In times past, it was difficult to upgrade insulation in older homes without incurring high expenses or risking property damage, but not anymore. Today, thanks to home insulation innovations, you can enjoy a modern standard of comfort in a classic older home, just as much as in a newer home.
Many people think of insulation as something to be installed around living areas only, but this runs the risk of leaving massive areas where heat transfer can occur. One common culprit is the attic, which heats up more in summer and cools down more in winter than any other part of the house, and serves as a major source of heat lost in many houses. The floors and basements are similar, letting far too much heat escape during the winter months. Working spaces like garages are all too often overlooked, which means they can become almost unusable on days of extreme temperatures, and also serve as a point of heat loss. To cover up all these potential weak spots in your home, full insulation is the best way to go, and in Mamaroneck the best choice for home insulation is The Home Insulators.
Insulation is the best way to keep heat in during the winter, and keep it out during the summer. If there is too much heat transfer in your home, you can end up spending a fortune on energy bills just to keep your living environment livable. With proper insulation, you can save up to 40% on your heating and cooling bills, making it a much more environmentally friendly and economically sound way to keep your family comfortable and happy all year round. While it is true the cost of insulation installation isn’t cheap, we guarantee you will end up saving money, recouping the cost through energy bill savings in only four to six years.
Types of Insulation
There are the classic blanket batts and rolls made from materials like glass wool, polyester, natural wool or recycled paper. These are often considered due to their relatively low cost, and because they seem relatively easy to install as a DIY job. But they don’t have the same level of maximum thermal performance or R-value, that you can acquire from other forms of insulation. If they are incorrectly installed, they can lose up to 50% effectiveness. They also cause problems with dust, affecting your family’s health.
Another classic form of insulation is loose fill insulation, consisting of fluffy strains of fiber blown into attics and walls to fill each nook and cranny. However, this kind of insulation usually loses efficiency when it becomes extremely cold.
Another choice is structural insulated panel insulation (rigid board) which can insulate entire wall surfaces, and enjoys superior energy efficiency. However, structural insulated panel insulation is difficult to install, expensive and susceptible to burrowing insects.
The best choice for insulating your home is spray foam insulation. This is a form of insulation that creates a complete air flow seal, serving as a more effective air and thermal barrier than other forms of insulation, as well as blocking outside noise and keeping out unwanted pests.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam insulation is sprayed through a nozzle into wall cavities where it quickly expands, filling every nook and cranny to form a complete seal. Once only newer homes could benefit from the superior advantages of spray foam insulation, but now more advanced varieties of non-expanding high R-value spray foam insulation can also be installed in older homes. If there’s pre-installed insulation, no problem, the spray foam expands around it with no need to remove it at all. Spray foam insulation will absolutely not biodegrade, sag, settle or shrink over time. It is safer than other forms of insulation in cases of house fires, and will increase the strength of your home’s structure, increasing its resale value.
There are small cans of spray foam insulation available on the market for DIY jobs. But to enjoy the full benefits of this technology, you need the help of experts who know the ins and outs of professional insulation.
