Upgrading You Home Insulation Will Save You Money

Poor insulation might be why you have high energy bills. You might not think you need any new insulation, but you should find out how much energy your home wastes and whether or not you can afford such a waste of money and still sustain your family's lifestyle and needs. We offer free energy audits!

While you might be unaware, a large significant chunk of your monthly energy bill (about 50%) goes toward heating and cooling. More importantly, a substantial part of the energy used in heating or cooling most homes is wasted through heat and air leaks in your home (when you heat or cool the air in your house, it moves out into the atmosphere). Increasing your home's insulation efficiency will help keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer while also saving on your energy costs.

One way to substantially reduce your monthly utility costs is through upgrading your home insulation. It’s easy and inexpensive, which makes it a great option! Call us to schedule your home energy audit for free.

Spray Foam Insulation

Our cellulose insulation adds value, comfort and energy efficiency to new and existing homes. Our team has the experience and knowledge that few others can match. For 45 years, we’ve helped our New Jersey and New York area customers keep their homes warmer in winter and cooler in summer by effectively controlling convective, conductive and radiant heat.

Understanding Insulation R-Values

An insulation material's R-value is a measure of its ability to resist heat flow and loss. It is expressed in units called R-values. The higher the value (in number), the better it resists heat flow and so is more efficient at keeping a home warm or cool. A house with no insulation has an average R-value of about .75; this means that if you heat your home by 25 degrees, the home will take 150% more time to heat up than if you had an average R-value of 36.

During the winter, a house with no insulation or insulating materials with a low R-value will keep losing heat. This is because the heat produced by your heating system will move into colder areas in your home, such as the attic and basement, and escape from there.

In summer, the reverse takes place. Heat from the surrounding environment will enter your home through your basement and attic, thereby reducing the efficiency of your cooling system.

The net effect of either situation above is that you pay more in energy bills and get less heating or cooling value.

When you upgrade the insulation in your home, the insulation materials used close up most or all of the spaces through which heat and cool air leak out in winter and summer, respectively. In essence, more savings on your energy bills!

Which Type of Home Insulation Is Best For Your Situation?

We offer different services for improving home insulation. We also install different insulation products depending on your budget and home's needs. Each product has its unique qualities and advantages. We are aware that it might be a bit of a hurdle for you to decide, on your own, which insulation material will best suit your home. We offer free home energy audits and consultations. Please give us a call today to have an expert from A1 Home Insulation inspect your home. As part of the inspection, our professionals will carry out a blower test to detect the air leaks in your home. The blower test will help us determine how much insulation is needed for maximum efficiency and savings on energy costs. From the results, we will determine the best insulation materials to use in your home.We have four major types of insulation from which to choose from, including:

Spray Foam Insulation: This form of insulation works by creating an airtight seal that prevents cold outside air from seeping inside your home. The process is done by first installing a polyurethane foam liner into the area to be insulated. The insulation then gets sprayed on top, and as it dries, it expands up to 100 times its size while also creating an airtight seal that prevents heat from escaping your home. This type of insulation is best used for large, open areas as it can be sprayed into cavities and crevices that are inaccessible to other types of insulation materials.

Blown-In/Loose-Fill Insulation: This type of insulation is made of fiberglass wool or cellulose, recycled material, and rock wool and is installed into the attic. The material used is typically blown-in using special equipment like a blowing nozzle on a hose attached to your home and then hand troweled into place to create a fluffy insulation barrier. Blown-in insulation works extremely well in small and hard-to-reach spaces, such as attic dormers, and wall cavities. Our installers are fully trained on the installation of blown in insulation.

Fiberglass Batts and Roll Insulation: This type of product is made out of fiberglass material that can be installed right in your attic space or outside on an exterior wall. It typically comes pre-cut to fit through small openings such as doorways and is installed with screws or nails. While fiberglass insulation might have a high R-Value, it can lose most of that value fast if poorly installed or in an area that's exposed to sunlight.

Rigid Board Insulation: Rigid board insulation is a type of wall and ceiling insulation made out of rigid panels. Each panel is typically about 16 inches wide, 30-inches tall, and ¾ inch thick, with an R-value ranging from 12 to 20 depending on the thickness selected. It is best used in areas that do not have a lot of load-bearing walls or ceilings. This material provides excellent thermal resistance as well as soundproofing.

Spray Foam Insulation

Fiberglass insulation has been used in New Jersey homes for years to insulate attics, crawl spaces and exterior walls. Eastern Contractor Services is the fiberglass insulation installer New Jersey homeowners depend on since 1974 for a job done right. What sets us apart from other fiberglass contractors is our knowledge, expertise and pride in craftsmanship. When you hire Eastern, you’re choosing highly qualified insulation experts who care about your project as much as you do.

What We Recommend For Most Homes

The experts at A1 Home Insulation carry out tests to determine the best insulation material to install in your house. In many cases, spray foam Insulation is the best compared to the other insulation types, so we recommend it. While it's more expensive than the others, it is more cost-efficient than other types of insulation because it lasts for a long time.

Since spray foam has excellent thermal resistance, we recommend that we install this type in areas where the temperature goes up and down often, such as living rooms or master bedrooms. It's also perfect for attics since air flows through these spaces easily. Additionally, spray foam is also the best for sealing up holes and cracks in walls.

Other benefits of spray foam insulation for your home include soundproofing your home from outside noise, higher home resale value, fewer allergens in your home, improved air quality, and fewer rodents and pests.

Say About Us?

Jim had to work under our deck, removing old insulation and insulating the kitchen overhang with foam.. They worked through a cold rain all day. We are very pleased with the work they did. Also a great job with cleanup.

I spoke to Jim who took a lot of time to explain some soundproofing options I had for my commercial space. He spent about 25 minutes on the phone going over what he’d suggest to fix my problems.

– Robert

5/5

I received several quotes from insulation companies for a real estate project on a single family home. I explained that the home would be a prototype model for future homes we will be building to be extremely energy efficient.
