One way of reducing your monthly utility bills is through significantly upgrading your home’s insulation. Raising energy efficiency in your home is one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways of reducing your energy bills. Call us now to schedule your free in-home energy audit today.
Home insulation products’ effectiveness is measured using R-values. R-values are indications of the home insulation material’s ability to resist heat loss and heat transfer. Homes in Westchester County can gain a lot from the use of products with higher R-values because of the high level of precipitation, long cold winters, and variable climate all through the four seasons. The laws of thermodynamics explain why proper insulation is important. During winter, heat naturally moves towards the colder areas in your home such as the basement or unheated attic, and then eventually moves outside. During summer, the reverse happens, with hot air outside moving inside the home to your air-conditioned rooms. Improving your home’s insulation will create an excellent barrier against transfer of heat, making your home comfortable while saving energy at the same time.
Types of Insulation
Our company offers several kinds of home insulation products and can work within any client’s budget. We know it can be confusing to understand all the different options available, so we will work together with you to find the best product that suits your home’s needs as well as your budget needs.
When you schedule your free in-home energy audit, one of our energy specialists will visit your home to perform a blower test. This simple practice helps our auditor determine which spaces in your home are efficient and which are not. Based on the outcome of the test, our energy auditor may suggest one of the following types of insulation products to increase energy efficiency in your home.
*Batts and rolls insulation
It is also referred to as blanket insulation. The name blanket is given because it comes as a large roll that is cut and fitted to fill gaps between your attic studs. It is generally composed of rock wool, cellulose, fiberglass, or recycled paper. It comes in various R-values, and can be very cost-effective for your home. Nevertheless, we advise you to ask a professional to help you with installation. Fiberglass can be quite hard to work with, can cause skin irritation and other health problems if the user is not properly protected. Also, if this insulation product is installed improperly, it can end up losing close to 50% of its efficiency because of the spaces in coverage.
This is a type of insulation product composed of tiny particles of home insulation materials like rock wool, cellulose, fiberglass, or recycled material. It is called “blown-in” because of the method of applying it, which is through blowing the material through a specialized hose. This product works well in different spaces in your home, like small spaces, unfinished attics, areas that are hard to reach, and new or existing wall spaces. Our professional team of technicians is fully qualified in this procedure, and can install new home insulation products in your home in just a day typically.
*Rigid board insulation
This one is made of rock wool or fiberglass, and comes in large, strong sheets that are hand cut to fit different spaces in the home. It’s an excellent option for new construction projects as well as unfinished walls or new roofs. It can also be molded around air ducts or pipes. Homeowners in Westchester County who are thinking about a home remodel or home addition can call us today for a free estimate on rigid board insulation.
*Spray foam insulation
We are proud to offer you this high quality product that offers an unmatched thermal and heat barrier. These insulation products have some of the highest R-values in the market today. Spray Foam is composed of two different chemical types that are mixed together, heated and finally sprayed through a special hose. This totally bio-safe foam increases in size instantly to create an airtight seal with great insulation properties. Spray foam can be used between joists and studs all through your home, and can even be used in existing walls. If it’s an existing wall, we will begin by drilling a small hole into the wall, and then inserting the spray foam to expand all through the wall. The small hole will then be patched, so there’s no need for the dust and problems common with knocking down walls.

Energy efficiency improvements are very wise to invest in within Westchester.
