Most times, inadequate insulation is the main cause of your high energy bills. Close to 60% of your energy bill could be going to either air-conditioning or heating because of the spaces in your home’s insulation. One way of reducing what you spend on heating and cooling is by significantly upgrading your home’s insulation. Raising energy efficiency in your home is one of the simplest and most cost-effective methods of reducing your energy bills. You can call us today to schedule a meeting with a professional in our team of energy auditors. We are available 7 days a week to answer any questions you might have about home insulation, so contact us today.
An R-value is an indication of a material’s ability to resist heat loss or heat transfer. Homes in Ramapo can benefit significantly from the installation of insulation products with higher R-values because of the long cold winters, variable climate, and humidity in the region. Laws of thermodynamics state it this way: heat moves to the colder spaces of your home such as your attic or basement, and then eventually moves outdoors. When it is warmer, you can expect the opposite to happen. Hot air from outside naturally moves indoors to the cooler air-conditioned rooms of the home. Improving your home’s current insulation will create a great barrier against heat transfer, thus ensuring your home is more comfortable and that it conserves energy too.
Types of Insulation
We offer several kinds of home insulation products and can work with any client’s budget. We know that it can be confusing to understand the different options available, so we will work with you to establish the best products that can work for your home and your budget. Call us now for a free in-home energy audit. One of our professional energy auditors will visit your home to perform a blower test. This test helps us to see which areas of your home can benefit from new insulation. Based on the results of the test, we may suggest one of the following kinds of insulation products that can raise your energy efficiency in your home.
-Batts and rolls insulation
It is also called blanket insulation. It got its name because it is a large roll that can be cut and fit to fill spaces between attic studs in your home. This product is usually made of rock wool, fiberglass, recycled paper or cellulose. It comes in various R-values, and is a good choice if you are looking for a cost-effective option. Nonetheless, we advise you to seek an expert’s help with its installation. Fiberglass is usually difficult to work with, causes irritation on your skin, and can cause other health issues for those who are not prepared. Also, if this type of insulation is installed improperly, it can lose close to 50% of its efficiency because of the spaces in coverage.
-Blown-in or Loose-fill insulation
This type of insulation product is made up of tiny particles of rock wool, cellulose, recycled material or fiberglass. This type of product is so named because of its method of application- the material is blown through a special hose. This insulation product works great in different spaces in your home such as small spaces, new and existing wall cavities, areas that are hard to reach or unfinished attics. Not to worry, our technicians are trained in the procedure, and can install blown-in insulation in your home in just a day.
-Rigid board insulation
It is made of rock wool or fiberglass, and comes in large, strong, sheets that can be easily hand cut to fit different spaces in the home. It’s a good choice for construction projects that are just starting, unfinished walls, new roofs, etc. It can also be molded around air ducts or pipes. If you are thinking about home additions or remodels, call us today for a free quote on this type of insulation product.
-Spray foam insulation
This one is probably the best kind of insulation in the market for older and new homes. We are proud to offer Ramapo residents a product that surpasses all other types of insulation. It has the highest R-value in the market today. Spray foam products are made up of two different kinds of chemical materials that are mixed together, heated, and then sprayed through a special hose. This bio-safe foam increases in size instantly creating an airtight seal with great insulation properties. This type of insulation is suitable for use between joists and studs all over the home, and can be used in already existing walls. If walls are already in place, our technicians will begin by drilling a small hole into your wall, then inserting spray foam to expand all through the wall. The small hole will then be patched, to eliminate dust and the usual problems associated with knocking down walls.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
We propose spray foam insulation as your first choice for insulation to make your house more comfortable and to increase energy-efficiency. Though spray foam is usually more expensive than the other kinds of home insulation products, it generally tends to pay for itself in less than three years. Other advantages include:
*High resale value
*decrease in rodents and pests
*less allergens in your home
*Improvement in air quality
