There are many kinds of insulation. Each variety of insulation has its purpose and offers distinct advantages for each application.

The higher the R-value the better the resistance to the flow of heat between spaces.

How Insulation Saves You Money in New York
Insulation is a never often seen material that can make a significant difference in the comfort level of your living surroundings. Insulation also has a true return on your insulation investment. The better the insulation and installation, the quicker you will recover your investment in insulation in terms of lower energy bills. You will be helping the environment by using fewer resources to heat and cool your house or facility.
How Ventilation Influences Insulation.
The amount of insulation and the quantity of ventilation in a structure should be efficiently balanced for your home or building to perform optimally. Too often we observe that ventilation, especially in attics, has been blocked. Your aim should be to have a well-functioning ventilation and insulation system at home or building. We have the right testing methods to figure out if you have any air leaks, clogged vents or other imbalances that affect the performance of your ventilation and insulation system.

Attic Insulation in Forest Hills
One of the most important locations of your home or building to insulate properly is your attic. Insulating an attic the right way will keep warm air from seeping into the living areas in the summer months. It will also prevent heated air from living spaces escaping into an unheated attic in the cold months. Air flow such as these is the source of higher energy bills and less comfortable living areas. Because the attic is a massive area, it is generally one of the first spaces where we boost the quality and quantity of insulation present. You will also benefit because your hvac system will not need to work as hard and will last longer.
Insulating a Basement or Crawl Space
The basement and crawl space are two areas that should be inspected for adequate insulation. The right form of insulation will minimize moisture and drafts in crawl spaces and basements. Installing insulation between basements and crawl spaces and living areas will make sure that your floors are not freezing and there are no cold spots in your living areas. You will also find that spray foam insulation also can help with pest and rodent control in below grade spaces like basements.
Varieties Of Insulation Available in Forest Hills, NY
The variety of insulation we suggest is dependent on the level of protection and comfort you need for your home or building. We install 4 different types of insulation: spray foam, cellulose, blow-in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray insulation is the best insulation to seal out air and insulate at the same time. It is a chemical compound that spreads out to fill every gap and is water-proof and insect resistant. There are two kinds, closed cell and open cell.
Blow-in cellulose insulation is fire resistant and is made from recycled materials. It is used in attics and wall cavities and is resistant to pests and mold. Loose fill fiberglass insulation is blow in fiberglass shreds and has comparable applications to cellulose insulation. It is a very cost-effective insulating material.
For attics, basements and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is an ideal answer. It is a durable insulating choice and is primarily installed in unfinished areas of a house or commercial buildings.
Many houses don’t have enough insulation in their wall spaces. In time, batts and loose-fill insulation can droop or get soaked and lose insulating ability. We can use various insulation materials to fix this problem including injection foam, blown-in fiberglass and spray foam. The type of insulation product we recommend will depend on how accessible the walls are from the outside.
Forest Hills Garage Insulation.
One of the many places where insulation can enhance the comfort of living areas is the garage. Builders neglect insulating a garage adequately to save on building expenses. Energy loss from a poorly insulated garage can stem from the garage ceiling, walls and the access door from the house into the garage. To boost your home’s comfort and efficiency, call us to help you upgrade your garage insulation.
Insulating Duct Work
Uninsulated air ducts in the basement, crawl space or up in the attic is a reason for wasted energy and wasted money. We can insulate your ductwork with foil blankets, spray foam or burying attic ducts with blow in insulation. Insulating and sealing your duct work will make sure that you are not losing heat in the wintertime and air-conditioned air in the summer months and making your hvac system work much harder than it needs to.
Insulation For Pipes
Incorrectly insulated water pipes are a cause of wasted water and wasted energy in Forest Hills, New York. You will wait much longer for warm water to reach your faucets if your pipes are not insulated correctly. We can recommend the kind and size of pipe insulation you will need to get the fastest delivery of warm water and the best results for maximum energy savings.
