Welcome to The Home Insulators of Somers
When we think of home insulation, we think of comfort, sustainability, warmth, satisfaction. Consequently, these are some of the things we pride ourselves in delivering to the people of Somers, NY. We have served the Somers community for the past several decades we are proud to be your heating and cooling partner.
Did you know most households spend almost half of their energy bill on heating and cooling? What they lack is proper insulation in their homes which leads to higher utility bills and unnecessary heat transfer. Upgrading your insulation in the home is one of the best decisions you can make since it is absolutely cost-effective and increases energy efficiency.
Every winter, heat moves from the heated rooms in your home to the colder space like your attic. After that it just seeps outdoors. The opposite happens during summer when the heat just finds its way into your cool rooms. What insulation does is that it creates a barrier that reduces this movement of heat.
The effectiveness of home insulation is measured in R-values. This is how we learn the material’s resistance to the flow of heat. The higher the R-value it has, the better the insulation it will provide. Somers’ homes benefit from materials with high R-values because we have some of the coldest winters together with our unpredictable climate.
Types of Insulation
Home Insulators of Somers offers several different kinds of home insulation products. Our professionals will assess your home and insulation products before making the necessary recommendations. Give us a call today to book a free home energy audit.
We provide the following products to Somers’ residents:
-Batts and Rolls Insulation
Batts and Rolls insulation otherwise known as blanket insulation is common in many homes. Batts and rolls are made of recycled paper, rock wool, polyester (flexible), fiberglass, etc. It’s also available in different sizes. Dealing with fiberglass is dangerous for you because it can cut or injure you. We recommend a professional to assist you with this. Be careful with installing batts and rolls insulation because it can lose up to 50% of its effectiveness if it is installed improperly.
This one is made of tiny articles of materials such as fiber, rock wool, fiberglass, foam, cellulose, etc. Loose-fill insulation works great in many spaces within the home such as existing walls, fresh wall cavities, small spaces, hard to reach places, unfinished attics, etc. Blown-in insulation requires a trained specialist to install it as well as special equipment.
Rigid board insulation
This one consists of rock wool or fiberglass and we mainly use it for insulating air ducts in the home. This option is also great for unfinished walls, new construction projects or new roofs. The boards can fit various spaces and sizes when cut and also molds well around pipes. If you are thinking about making any addition or home remodel, call us today and let’s discuss what rigid board insulation products fit your home best.
Spray Foam insulation
Spray foam has a higher R-value when compared to blown-in, rigid insulation or batts and rolls insulation. It usually involves two kinds of chemicals. These two chemicals are mixed together, heated and finally sprayed through a special hose. This should only be installed by a professional. It is one of the most recommended types of home insulation for older as well as new homes.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
When installed by The Home Insulators, you can expect to create an airtight seal that will serve as an effective thermal and air barrier. Spray foam insulation reduces air filtration and condensation. Spray foam sees to it that there are no fasteners, seams, joints, etc. needed and still manages to improve thermal performance and lower thermal bridging. This form of insulation is suitable for ceilings, roofs, exterior wall insulation, below grade areas, HVAC ductwork, etc.
Benefits of Spray Foam
We recommend spray foam to all of our Somers residents. This is irrespective of its high cost. It is usually highly effective and should pay for itself in less than 3 years.
Some of the benefits of spray foam include:
-reduces air filtration and condensation
-huge reduction in energy bills
-high resale value
-restored quietness in your home
-improvement in air quality
-eliminates the need to break through walls for installation
-less burden to your furnace and/or your air conditioning systems
