Welcome to The Home Insulators of North Salem
Thank you for visiting our website. We are the leading North Salem authority when it comes to all things home insulation. Ask around, every warm home during the winter has probably had one of our professional energy auditors in it already. We have been serving this small community and have been doing so for decades. Do you want to reduce your energy bills? Call us today, let us show you how.
The history of our town can be traced back to as early as the 30s. Older homes like these would benefit a great deal from improved insulation. Not to say that newer homes have ADEQUATE insulation. You probably need to get that checked to. Call us today and we will send over an energy auditor (at no charge to you) to show you how and where energy is leaking, and what that’s doing to your monthly energy bills.
Inadequate home insulation is the cause of your high energy bills and lack of energy efficiency within the home. An insulation product’s effectiveness is measured by its R-value. The R-value is an indication of the material’s ability to resist loss/transfer of heat. It is important for homes in North Salem to have insulation materials with high R-values. This is because of our high humidity, the cold winters and our ever unpredictable four seasons. The laws of thermodynamics explain it this way: during winter heat tends to move toward colder regions of your home such as your attic and basement and is eventually lost outside. The opposite happens during summer. Heat from outside moves into your cooler air-conditioned rooms.
Insulation creates a barrier against heat transfer making the home more comfortable while reducing your energy bills.
Types of Insulation
Home Insulators of North Salem offers several types of insulation products priced differently so as to be accessible to every client’s budget. It can be difficult choosing an insulation product from our wide variety of products. However, our professionals will work with you to establish the best product for your home.
The first step is having a blower test. This test will show where air/moisture are leaking in the house and at what amount. If your home could benefit from additional insulation, our auditor may then recommend a specific insulation product, at no-obligation.
The following are types of insulation that we may recommend:
*Batts and rolls insulation
It is also known as blanket insulation. It usually comes in a large roll that is cut and fit to fill spaces between attic studs. Blanket insulation is made of cellulose, rock wool, fiberglass, or recycled paper. It comes in many different R-values, and is usually very cost-effective. We advise you to ask a professional to help you with installation. Some materials like fiberglass can cause skin irritation, is hard to work with, and can cause other health issues when mishandled. Also, when batt insulation is not installed correctly, it can end losing close to 50% of its effectiveness because of the gaps in coverage.
* Loose-fill/Blown-in insulation
Loose-fill insulation is a type of insulation product made of tiny particles of fiberglass, rock wool, recycled material or cellulose. Blown-in insulation coined its name from the technique used in application. This insulation product works well in different spaces in the home like hard-to-reach areas, tiny spaces, unfinished attics, and new or existing wall cavities.
*Rigid board insulation
This one is made out of rock wool or fiberglass. The product comes in sturdy, large sheets hand cut and fitted into a choice of spaces in your home. It is a great alternative for new construction projects, unfinished walls or new roofs, and can also be molded around air ducts or pipes. Call us today if you are thinking of a home remodel, we’ll give you a free quote on rigid board insulation.
*Spray foam insulation
We are proud to provide the best home insulation product to our North Salem residents. It is available for both older and new homes. Spray foam insulation products have the highest R-values. It is made of 2 chemical materials that are mixed, heated and sprayed through a special hose. The foam expands to create an airtight seal.
The foam can be used between joists and studs all over the home, and can be used in walls. Our technician starts by drilling a small hole into the wall, and then inserts the spray foam into the wall. They will then patch the small hole. We eliminate the hassle of dusty floors and knocked down walls.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
It is more expensive than the others, but it will pay for itself in 3 years or less. Call us to find out more about the product. Some of the benefits you are to enjoy include:
*A quiet home thanks to the airtight seal this insulation provides
*Higher resale value for your home
*Improvement in air quality
*Fewer allergens in the home
*decrease in number of insects and rodents
Call us today to schedule your free, in-home energy audit. One of our friendly customer service representatives will schedule an appointment, day or evening, with our certified energy auditors. A trained auditor will come to your home to examine your existing insulation, and to conduct an on-site blower test. This simple and quick test will indicate which areas of your home have inadequate insulation which leads to heat transfer and higher energy costs. The auditor will then provide you with a detailed recommendation specific to your residence, and discuss the potential benefits of upgrading your insulation. There is no cost or obligation for this visit so click here to schedule an appointment today!
Your home may also benefit from one of our other types of insulation products. Many of our satisfied customers choose to just upgrade their attic insulation, because this is typically the greatest contributor to heat loss. Batts and rolls (or blanket) insulation is a very cost-effective option for providing greater R-value protection in your attic. Blown-in or loose-fill insulation is made of tiny pieces of insulation material that are blown through a hose to provide coverage in hard to reach spaces, or to fill in over inadequate insulation. Both batts and blown-in insulation are excellent options, and can be installed in just one day. So, please click here for more information.
If you are considering new construction or a remodel in Briarcliff Manor, call us during the planning process to learn more about rigid board insulation. This is the perfect choice for new roofs or unfinished walls, and can also be cut and molded around piping or air ducts. We would be very happy to provide you with a no obligation estimate for either spray foam or rigid board insulation for your new home or remodeling job.
