Home insulation products are usually measured using R-values. An R-value is an indication of the home insulation material’s ability to resist heat loss or heat transfer. Homes in Rockland County have a lot to gain from using higher R-value insulation products because of the long cold winters, high humidity, and unpredictable climate all through the four seasons. The laws of thermodynamics explain it this way: heat moves towards the colder spaces of the home such as your basement or unheated attic then is eventually lost outside. During warmer periods, the reverse happens, hot air outside naturally moves indoors to your cool rooms. Improving your home insulation will create a good barrier against heat transfer, making you able to save energy and making your home more comfortable.
Types of Insulation
We offer several kinds of home insulation products and can work within any customer’s budget. We know it can be confusing to understand all the different options available, so we will work with you and help you determine the best insulation product for your home and budget.
Call us today and schedule a visit from one of our energy experts. They will visit your home and conduct a blower test. This simple process helps our professionals establish which spaces in your home are the most efficient and the least efficient. Based on the outcome of the blower test, our energy auditor may recommend any one of the following types of insulation materials to improve your home’s energy efficiency.
*Batts and rolls/blanket insulation
It is referred to as blanket because it comes in a large roll that is cut and fitted to fill spaces between attic studs. It is usually made of rock wool, cellulose, fiberglass, or recycled paper. It comes in different R-values, and can be a great cost-effective option. However, we advise you to ask a professional to help you with installation. Fiberglass can be quite difficult to work with, can cause skin irritation, as well as other health problems if not handled properly. Also, when batt insulation is installed incorrectly, it can end up losing more than 50% of its effectiveness because of the gaps in coverage.
This is a type of insulation product made of tiny particles of cellulose, fiberglass, recycled material or rock wool. It is referred to as “Blown-in insulation” because of its application technique: blowing the material through a special hose. This insulation product works great in different spaces in your home, as well as small spaces, unfinished attics, hard-to-reach areas, and new or existing wall spaces.
*Rigid board insulation
This is made of rock wool or fiberglass, and comes in large, strong sheets that are cut to fit the different spaces in your home. This product is a great choice for new construction projects as well unfinished walls or new roofs, and can also be molded around pipes or air ducts. If you are deciding on a home addition or home remodel, please contact us today for a free estimate on rigid board insulation.
*Spray foam insulation
This is probably the best type of home insulation product available for both old and new homes. Our company is proud to provide the residents of Rockland County this high quality product that offers an unmatched thermal and heat barrier, having some of the highest R-values on the market. Spray foam is made up of two different chemical materials that are mixed, heated and finally sprayed via a special hose. This absolutely bio-safe foam increases in width immediately creating a seal that is airtight and has great insulation properties. Spray foam can be used between joists and studs all over your home, and can also be used in existing walls. We will begin by drilling a small hole into your wall, and then inserting the spray foam to expand all through the wall. The small hole will then be patched. There is no need for the dusty environment and problems that come with knocking down walls.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
We always recommend spray foam insulation as the best insulation method to all our clients looking to make their homes more energy-efficient and more comfortable. Although spray foam is usually more expensive than the other kinds of home insulation products, it tends to pay for itself in 3 years or less. This is because you will end up saving more than 40% on what you spend for heating and cooling monthly and all year long. Other advantages of spray foam insulation are:
*A quieter home
*Higher resale value
*Improvement in air quality
*Fewer rodents and pests
*Less allergens in the home
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.
