About Cortlandt, New York
Situated in the Northwestern corner of Westchester County, the Town of Cortlandt, New York, is home to over 40,000 residents. Two major villages make up the town: Croton-on-Hudson, and Buchanan. The majestic Hudson River, wooded, sloping hills, and beautiful streams make the town come to life. The environment is peaceful and the quality of life is very high, and the residents and government like to keep it that way. Like many other northeastern parts of the country, it can become pretty uncomfortable during summers and winters when we have to deal with extremely low or high temperatures. The Home Insulators is here to lessen this discomfort or eliminate it entirely. Our home insulation solutions will improve your quality of life and reduce your energy bills as it has done for many households in Westchester County. Give us a call today and we will help you get through the rough seasons in peace and comfort.
Before choosing an insulation product for your home, it’s important to first understand the concepts of heat transfer, and insulation. Heat transfer occurs when heat travels to cooler regions of a given environment or space. In your home for instance, cold winters require you to use a furnace as a supplemental heat source. Heat from the furnace flows to the cooler areas of your house. In the hot summers, the heat from outside flows into your house and occupies the cooler places, such as attics and basements. These two scenarios illustrate heat transfer. In this region, both summers and winters can be extremely harsh, and you’ll most likely have your furnace or AC on throughout depending on the season. This means you consume more energy and pay more money for it.
These are units used for measuring the effectiveness of an insulating material. Basically, R-values measure the ability of a material to resist heat transfer. The higher a material’s R-value, the higher its insulation capacity, and vice versa. For Westchester County, The Home Insulators recommends you use high R-value insulating products, such as spray foam.
We understand that sometimes, our investments are dictated by budgets. Bearing in mind that insulation is an essential component of every home, we have gone out of our way to ensure our products are affordable and there’s something to match your budget. In case you are not sure exactly what kind of insulation your home needs or whether it is necessary at all, we are available to address all your questions. Call us and book a free appointment with one of our qualified energy auditors, who will assess your house using a blower test to determine the areas that may serve as avenues for heat transfer. We are available 7 days a week, during the days and evenings as well, to accommodate your schedule.
Types of Insulation
Some of our top home insulation products at The Home Insulators of Cortlandt include:
Batts and rolls: They are made of cellulose, fiberglass, or rock wool. They work best when fitted in walls, basements or attics. They are also known as blankets because they can be rolled to fit into awkwardly-shaped spaces or those with irregular dimensions.
Blown-in/Loose fill: They are similar to batts and rolls in composition. In addition, they work best in unreachable spaces. Installing loose-fill insulation requires qualified technicians, and specialized trucks and hoses.
Rigid foam sheathing: For a home that’s been built recently, or one that’s been refurbished, this is the best insulation solution for it. Normally, foam is sprayed on top of a rigid board. That’s why it is suitable for unfinished walls or new roofs. This form of insulation also has a high R-value, which translates to more efficiency. It can also be fitted on both the interiors and exteriors of the house.
Spray foam-the superior solution: It is a special kind of insulation material made by mixing two types of chemicals and then heating them. The heated mixture is then sprayed on a target space and as soon as they come into contact, the foam begins expanding and spreading out evenly. As it spreads, it expands by about 50-100 times the original size. It then cools to form an airtight thermal seal. Unfortunately, spray foam may not work efficiently when installed unprofessionally. That’s why at The Home Insulators of Cortlandt, we guarantee 100 percent perfect installation for your spray foam insulation.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam is derived from materials with the highest R-value (6.88 per inch) available commercially today. This means that it provides the best insulation any modern home can achieve today. When the job is handled by professionals from The Home Insulators, you are guaranteed maximum insulation for many years to come. This means that you can begin saving on your energy expenditures right from the start. Typically within just a few years, your investment in spray foam will have been recouped.
Installing spray form is a task that requires skill and expertise. That is why it will only benefit you if a professional does the installation. Poor spay foam installation can reduce the efficiency of the insulation drastically. It can result in gaps that may allow heat transfer. This is the solution we recommend for most of Westchester County homes. It also suppresses noise from the outside environment, provides better air quality, discourages infestation of pests and rodents, and doesn’t require you to make any major modifications to your house during installation. It can also increase the resale value of your home.
