Welcome to The Home Insulators of Nyack
The Home Insulators of Nyack is an expert provider of quality and certified home insulation products and services. Our staff is proud to serve Nyack residents, known as the art and soul hub by most locals. For decades our company has been helping homeowners in Nyack reduce their energy bills one household at a time.
Many homes, both old and new, can benefit from a free in-home energy audit (call us now to schedule an appointment with one of our specialists) to deal with the issue of insufficient insulation in most homes. This may be why you pay so much for heating and cooling every month. Did you know that more than 50% of your energy bill goes to heating or air-conditioning? One way of reducing your monthly utility bills drastically is by upgrading your home’s insulation. Raising your home’s energy efficiency is one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to decrease your energy bills. You can schedule an appointment with one of our friendly energy auditors right on our website. We are available 7 days a week to answer any of your questions.
We can tell how efficient an insulation product is by measuring its R-value. An R-value is an indication of an insulation material’s ability to resist heat transfer/loss. Homes in Nyack have a lot to gain from using high R-value products because of the long cold winters, humidity, and changeable climate across the 4 seasons. The laws of thermodynamics state that heat usually moves to the colder spaces in your home such as your basement or attic and is eventually lost outside. During the warm season we expect the opposite to happen with hot air from outside naturally moving into your cooler air-conditioned rooms. Improving your current home insulation will create a great barrier against this transfer of heat, thus making it better to conserve energy in the home and ensure it is more comfortable.
Types of Insulation
We offer several types of home insulation products. We know it’s confusing to know the differences between all these options, so our professionals will guide you and help you determine the best insulation product for your home and budget.
When you schedule a free in-home energy audit, one of our energy specialists will visit your home to carry out a blower test. This easy process helps our technicians establish the areas in your home that are leaking air and which could benefit from additional insulation. Our energy specialists usually recommend certain kinds of insulation products, at no-obligation, based on the results of the blower test. Recommendations may include:
Batts and rolls/blanket insulation
It is so named because it is available in a large roll that is usually cut and fitted to fill the spaces between attic studs. This method of insulation is usually composed of rock wool, cellulose, fiberglass, or recycled paper. Batt insulation comes in a wide range of R-values, and is considered very cost-effective. Nonetheless, we advise you to ask a professional to help you with installation. Fiberglass is usually difficult to work with, can cause skin irritation together with other health issues if you are unprotected. Also, when batt insulation is installed incorrectly, it can lose close to 50% of its effectiveness as a result of the spaces in coverage.
This is a kind of insulation that is composed of tiny particles of recycled material, rock wool, cellulose or fiberglass. Blown-in insulation is named after the method of applying it, which is by blowing the material through a specialized hose. This insulation product works great in different spaces of the home such as small spaces, unfinished attics, hard-to-reach areas, or new/existing wall cavities.
Rigid board insulation
This is made of rock wool or fiberglass and is available in large, strong sheets that are hand cut to fit different spaces in the home. Rigid board insulation is a great choice for new construction projects, unfinished walls, new roofs, etc. and can also be molded around air ducts or pipes. If you’re thinking about any home addition or home remodel, you may consider calling us today to get a free quote on rigid board insulation.
Spray foam insulation
This is perhaps the best kind of insulation product available for both old and new homes. We are proud to offer Nyack residents this quality product that is an unsurpassed thermal and heat barrier. This product has the highest R-value on the market today. Spray foam is composed of two types of chemical materials that are mixed together, heated then sprayed through a special hose. The foam is completely bio-safe and usually expands straight away to create a seal that is airtight with great insulation properties. It can be used between joists and studs all over the home, and even in existing walls. For homes with existing walls we will start by drilling a small hole into the wall, and then inserting the spray foam to expand all through the wall. We’ll then patch the hole, so there’s no need for the usual problems like dust and difficulties with knocking down walls.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
If you’d ask us our pick among the types of home insulation products, we would choose spray foam. Though this method of insulation is usually more expensive than other home insulation products, it usually tends pay for itself in less than 3 years. Other benefits of spray foam are:
*Improvement in air quality
*A quiet home with fewer disturbances from outside
*Higher resale value of your home
*less pests and rodents
*less allergens in the home
