Many homes in Norwood can benefit from getting a free energy audit conducted. This is the starting point toward addressing the issue of poor home insulation. This may be the reason why your energy bills are high. More than 50% of your energy expenses are most likely going to air-conditioning or heating thanks to the spaces in your home’s insulation. One way we can decrease your monthly utility bill is by upgrading your home’s insulation. Call us now to speak to one of our friendly energy auditors.
We use R-values to measure how effective home insulation products really are. These indicate the insulation material’s ability to resist the loss/transfer of heat. Homes in Norwood could benefit from using insulation products with high R-values.
The laws of Physics explain it this way: heat moves towards the colder areas in your home like the attic or basement, then it seeps outdoors. During warmer periods, the reverse happens, with heat moving indoors to your much cooler air-conditioned rooms. Improving your home’s insulation will create a tighter barrier against the transfer of heat, ensuring the home is now more comfortable and saving energy too.
Types of Insulation
We offer various kinds of home insulation products that are all very affordable. We know it can be quite confusing to dig into all these different choices, so we’ll work together with you to determine the best product tailored for your home as well as budget.
One of our professional energy auditors will visit your home to carry out a blower test. This simple practice will help our team determine which spaces in your home could use some brand new insulation. Our auditor will probably recommend one of the following types of insulation:
*Batts and rolls insulation
It is also referred to as blanket insulation. Batt insulation is made of cellulose, recycled paper, rock wool, or fiberglass. It comes in many different R-values, and can be quite an economical type of insulation product. Nevertheless, we advise you to ask a professional to help you with installation. Fiberglass can be a bit hard to work with, can cause skin irritation plus other health problems for those who aren’t prepared. Also, if this product is installed incorrectly, it can lose more than 50% of its efficiency.
This is a method of insulation composed of small particles of rock wool, cellulose, recycled material or fiberglass. It is named after the technique used in applying it- blowing the material through a specialized tube. Blown-in insulation works great in many spaces in your home, like unfinished attics, spaces that are hard to reach and wall cavities. Our expert technicians are highly trained in this procedure, and can install this product in your home in a day.
*Rigid board insulation
This is an excellent option for new construction projects as well as new roofs, unfinished walls, etc. It is also suitable for molding around air ducts or pipes. If you are thinking about remodeling or a home addition, call us now for a free quote on this product.
*Spray foam insulation
It is the best insulation product on the market. We are delighted to provide the residents of Norwood such a quality product that offers an unmatched thermal and heat barrier. These products have some of the highest R-values in the market. It is made of two types of chemical materials that are mixed, heated and finally sprayed through a special pipe. This foam is totally bio-safe and expands immediately creating a seal that’s airtight and has great insulation properties. Spray foam is suitable for use between joists and studs all over your home, as well as existing walls.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
We always recommend spray foam insulation to all our Norwood customers because this is the best method to ensure your home is more comfortable and that energy is preserved. Although spray foam is usually more expensive when compared to the other types of home insulation products, it usually tends to pay for itself in less than 3 years. This is because homeowners make savings of up to 40% on their monthly energy bills all through the year. Other advantages of spray foam insulation are:
*The airtight seal ensures there is no passage of dust thus improved air quality in the home.
*Blocks noise from outside thus ensuring your home is quieter.
*Higher resale value of your home.
*Less pests and rodents in the home due to the tighter seal and inability of pests to chew through this insulation.
*Less allergens in your home.

Norwood, New Jersey
Norwood, 07648 is a borough in the county of Bergen, New Jersey. It has a population of slightly more than 5,000 people. The territory where Norwood stands was originally settled at by just a dozen or so families in 1670. The families were mostly from the Dutch Republic and they purchased land at this location. Around this time, grants were given by the then Governor Philip Carteret. The Lenni Lenape also roamed the valley.
The name Norwood is derived from an old description given to the town- North-woods. It was part of a Northern township stretching from the Hudson River to the Saddle River. In 1905, Norwood withdrew from the township and was named an independent borough.
Forests in Norwood are home to many deciduous forms of life. The forests shelter foxes, rabbits, deer, turtle, wild turkey and, even coyote. There is a collision between man and wildlife in the area where there are many reports of deer colliding with motorists, coyotes disturbing human peace, etc. All these are growing concerns among the community.
Some of the places our Norwood location serves are Northvale, 07647 and Rockleigh 07647.
