Tarrytown is one of the famous historic Hudson River towns, and boasts spectacular views across the river and from the Tappan Zee Bridge. There a many historic buildings in Tarrytown that were built in the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as wonderful restaurants, unique shops, and the nation’s oldest theater, the Music Hall.
Since many of the homes in Tarrytown were built before 1980, they could benefit from upgraded insulation to help improve their energy efficiency. Homes in the Northeast can spend up to 50% of their monthly energy bill on excess heating or cooling due to poor insulation that does not provide a thermal barrier. The main purpose of insulation is to help your home stay warm during long winters, and cool throughout hot, humid summers. If your insulation is inadequate, your furnace and air-conditioner have to work harder to keep your home comfortable. Why continue to lose money every month on your energy bill? Call us to learn more about how we can help you permanently reduce your monthly utility bills.
Home insulation products are rated by their R-value. This is a measure of how resistant the insulation material is to heat transfer. The laws of thermodynamics explain that heat naturally seeks colder areas in your home during the winter and escapes outside due to inadequate insulation. In the summer, heat does the opposite and moves from outside towards the cooler, air-conditioned rooms in your home. Higher R-value products provide much better protection against heat transfer, which will keep your home at a more consistent, conditioned temperature while saving you money.
Call us today to schedule a free consultation with one of our energy auditors. A trained auditor will come to your home to perform a blower test. This quick and easy test can determine which areas of your home are subject to heat loss or transfer. Afterwards, we will provide you with a detailed recommendation specific to your home’s insulation requirements, and explain the potential benefits of upgrading your insulation. We are available 7 days per week in Tarrytown and appointments are available both days and evenings, so that we can better accommodate your busy schedule. Please call us today with any questions you may have, or to schedule your free, no obligation appointment.
Types of Insulation
Besides spray foam, The Home Insulators offers several other kinds of insulation products to meet every budget. These include batts and rolls insulation (otherwise knows as blanket insulation), loose-fill or blown-in insulation, and rigid board insulation. Based on the blower test, we may recommend upgrading certain areas of you home. May of our customers choose to upgrade the attic insulation, because this is a very cost-effective option that provide good results. The insulation in many older homes has degraded, or was built with limited insulation during construction. Heat loss from old insulation can become a primary source of higher energy bills.
Batts and rolls insulation or blown-in insulation can be installed in just one or two days to help combat this problem.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam insulation is made of two different chemicals that are mixed together and then sprayed out through a special hose. This completely bio-safe foam expands over 100 times its original volume to completely cover and seal the spaces between the studs and joists in your attic, walls, or basement. After spray foam insulation dries, it retains its flexibility for decades and can withstand both high and low temperatures without shifting, cracking, settling, or degrading. Spray foam insulation provides an airtight seal that is extremely durable and is guaranteed for the life of your home.
Some of the other unique benefits of spray foam insulation are:
*Thoroughly tested to meet or exceed all building codes in New York state
*Airtight seal is waterproof, preventing mold and mildew
*Reduces the amount of allergens that can enter your home
*Fewer rodents and pests, since spray foam is not a source of nesting material
*Blocks outside noise
*Limits the unintended use of your furnace and air-conditioning unit
Using a professional to install your insulation is an extremely important consideration. Fiberglass is the standard material for batts and rolls, blown-in, and rigid board insulation. Fiberglass products can be very difficult to work with and improper handling can lead to skin irritation or respiratory problems. In addition, if traditional insulation is installed incorrectly, it is likely to be 50% less effective than professionally installed products. Our installers are certified and trained in all types of insulation and will get the job done right the first time.
