Attic Insulation in Schenectady
One of the most essential spots of your home or building to insulate thoroughly is your attic. Insulating an attic correctly will keep heated air from leaking into the living areas in the summer months. It will also prevent warm air from living spaces escaping into an unheated attic in the cold months. Air flow such as these is the cause of higher energy bills and less comfortable living areas. Because the attic is a big place, it is typically 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 kind of insulation will minimize dampness and drafts in crawl spaces and basements. Installing insulation between basements and crawl spaces and living areas will ensure that your floors are not chilly and there are no cool spots in your living areas. You will also find that spray insulation also helps with insect and rodent control in below grade spaces such as basements.
Varieties Of Insulation Available in Schenectady, NY
The kind of insulation we suggest depends on the level of coverage 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 foam insulation is the most effective insulation to seal off air and insulate at the same time. It is a chemical material that spreads out to fill every opening and is water-proof and insect resistant. There are two kinds, closed cell and open cell.
Blown cellulose insulation is fire resistant and is made from recycled materials. 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 comparable applications to cellulose insulation. It is a very cost-effective insulating product.
For attics, basement walls and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is a perfect solution. It is a durable insulating choice and is mostly used in unfinished areas of a house or business buildings.
Many houses don’t have enough insulation in their wall cavities. Gradually, batts and loose-fill insulation can droop or become soaked and will lose their insulating ability. We can easily use different insulation materials to fix this problem including injection foam, blown fiberglass and spray foam. The variety of insulation material we suggest will depend upon how accessible the walls are from the outdoors.
Schenectady Garage Insulation.
One of the many locations where insulation can improve the comfort of living rooms is the garage. Builders overlook insulating a garage properly to save on building costs. Energy loss from an inadequately insulated garage can come from the garage ceiling, walls and the access door from the house into the garage.
