Frequently we observe that ventilation, especially in attics, has been obstructed. Your aim should be to have a well-functioning ventilation and insulation system at home or building.

Attic Insulation in Harlem
One of the most essential locations of your home or building to insulate correctly is your attic. Insulating an attic the right way will keep warm air from leaking into the living areas in the summer months. It will also prevent heated air from living spaces seeping into an unheated attic in the cold months. Air movement such as these is the source of higher energy bills and less comfortable living areas. Because the attic is a big area, it is generally one of the first spaces where we boost the quality and quantity of insulation present. You will also gain because your hvac system will not have to work as hard and will last longer.
Insulating a Basement or Crawl Space
The basement and crawl space are 2 areas that should be inspected for adequate insulation. The ideal kind of insulation will minimize dampness and drafts in crawl spaces and basements. Installing insulation in between basements and crawl spaces and living areas will ensure that your floors are not chilly and there are no cold spots in your living areas. You will also find that spray insulation also can help with insect and rodent control in below grade spaces like basements.
Types of Insulation Available in Harlem, NY
The type of insulation we recommend depends on the level of protection and comfort you need for your home or building. We install four different types of insulation: spray insulation, cellulose, blow-in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation is the best insulation to shut out air and insulate simultaneously. It is a chemical compound that spreads out to fill every gap and is waterproof and insect resistant. There are 2 kinds, closed cell and open cell.
Blown-in cellulose insulation is fire resistant and is made from recycled products. It is used in attics and wall spaces and is resistant to pests and mold and mildew. Loose fill fiberglass insulation is blow-in fiberglass scraps and has similar applications to cellulose insulation. It is a cost-effective insulating product.
For attics, basement walls and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is a perfect answer. It is a durable insulating option and is mostly installed in unfinished areas of the home or business buildings.
Many homes don’t have enough insulation in their wall spaces. Over time, batts and loose-fill insulation can sag or become soaked and will lose their insulating ability. We can use different insulation materials to correct this problem including injection foam, blown fiberglass and spray foam. The variety of insulation material we suggest will depend on how accessible the walls are from the exterior.
Harlem Garage Insulation.
One of the many spots where insulation can improve the enjoyment of living areas is the garage. Builders overlook insulating a garage adequately to save money on building expenses. Energy loss from an inadequately insulated garage can come from the garage ceiling, walls and the access door from the home into the garage. To boost your home’s comfort and efficiency, call us to help you upgrade your garage insulation.
Insulating Air Ducts
Uninsulated ductwork in the basement, crawl space or up in the attic is a reason for wasted energy and wasted money. We can insulate your ducts with foil blankets, spray foam insulation or covering up attic ductwork with blow in insulation. Insulating and sealing off your ducts will make sure that you are not losing heat in the winter and cooled air in the summer and making your hvac system work much harder than it needs to.
