We are proud to be part of this vibrant community, while providing better, more comfortable living conditions for Yorktown homes.

Yorktown’s existence can be traced back to 1842. This means that most of the real estate developments in the region consist of older homes. Older homes can benefit greatly from an energy audit. Close to 60% of your energy bill is going to air-conditioning or heating. Want to know how to reduce your energy expenditure by half? Invest in quality home insulation products such as the ones we provide. Raising your home’s energy efficiency is a cost-effective way to achieve this. Call us today to book an appointment with one of our professional energy auditors. We’ll be able to show you how much energy you are wasting each month and what you can do about it.
Insulation products are measured by their R-values. An R-value is an indication of the insulation material’s ability to resist heat transfer/loss.
Homes in the North, especially those in Yorktown, have much to gain by using higher R-value insulation products because of the extremely cold winters, humidity, and inconsistent climate throughout summer, winter, autumn and spring. You see, during the cold season heat naturally moves towards the colder spaces in your home such as the attic or basement, and eventually moves outdoors i.e. it ends up lost. During summer, you can expect the opposite to happen. Hot air from outside moves indoors to the cooler parts of the house (your air-conditioned rooms). When you call us in, we will upgrade your home’s insulation that will create a barrier against heat transfer and make your home comfortable and ensure you conserve energy. All the products we offer are certified with the highest quality and safety standards.
Types of Insulation
The Home Insulators of Yorktown offers several types of home insulation products all tailored to suit any customer’s budget. It can be confusing to understand these different options, since each works for your home differently. Our professionals will take you through each kind of option while telling you how it is best-suited for your home. Call us right now for a free consultation on any type of home insulation product.
Once you call us, we will send an energy auditor to conduct a blower test inside your home. We can then determine which areas of your home have the most to gain from new insulation. Our professional auditor may then recommend a specific insulation product after the results of the test, with no obligation.
*Batts and rolls insulation
Another name for it is blanket insulation. The reason behind its name is its appearance. It comes in a roll that is large enough to be cut and fit into spaces between attic studs. This type of insulation is made of cellulose, fiberglass, recycled paper or rock wool. It comes in different R-values and can be very cost-effective. Nevertheless, we advise you to seek a professional’s help with installation. These materials can be dangerous to deal with. Fiberglass can cause skin irritation and other health issues Also, when not installed correctly, batt insulation can lose more than 50% of its efficiency owing to gaps in coverage.
* Loose-fill/Blown-in insulation
This is a type of insulation product made of tiny insulation material particles such as recycled material, cellulose, fiberglass or rock wool. Blown-in insulation is named after its application technique. It is usually blown through a special hose. It works great in different spaces in the home such as small spaces, areas that are difficult to reach, unfinished attics, and new or already existing wall cavities. You have no need to worry, our expert technicians are fully trained in the procedure, and can be in and out of your home in just a day.
*Rigid board insulation
It is made out of rock wool or fiberglass. It comes in sturdy, large sheets that are hand cut to fit various spaces in the home. This insulation product is a good alternative for new construction projects, unfinished walls or new roofs. It can also be molded around pipes and air ducts.

Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation is one of the highest quality products offered in the industry. We are proud to offer this type of home insulation product to our Yorktown customers. Spray foam has a higher R-value than other types of insulation products. This might be the reason why it is so expensive. Spray foam is typically made up of 2 chemicals that are mixed together, heated and then sprayed through a specialized hose. The foam will start increasing in size immediately creating a seal that blocks any transfer of air. This offers remarkable insulation properties. This type of insulation is a good choice for older and newer homes.
Spray foam insulation reduces air filtration and condensation in the home. The airtight seal it creates acts as an excellent heat and air barrier. There are no seams, fasteners, etc. needed when it comes to spray foam & this leads to great thermal performance and lower thermal bridging. This product is suitable for roofs, ceilings, below grade areas, walls, and other parts of the home. Call us today to get more info about this product.
