We can help to keep your home at a pleasant temperature, reduce your energy costs, and make sure your environmental impact is reduced, by adding wall insulation to your property. We have a number of options depending on the design of your home, including adding interior or exterior insulation to solid walls, and using a specialist approach to retrofit insulation to your cavity walls. Any of these approaches can pay big dividends when it comes to keeping your home cozy at a reasonable cost.
Cavity Wall Insulation
Cavity wall insulation is an extremely popular option here at New Haven Insulation, and we work across the New Haven, CT, area to fit cavity wall insulation products and make sure our customers aren’t paying more than they need to for their energy. Cavity walls have a space between the interior wall and the exterior wall, which can be filled with a specialist insulating material to reduce heat loss via the walls. In many cases, in newer homes, this is added as a standard, but in older properties this needs to be added in later. Cavity wall insulation will pay back the cost, through reduced energy bills, in a fairly short time. Learn more by giving us a call today.
Solid Wall Insulation
New Haven Insulation can also offer a couple of approached to insulate solid walls, including adding interior insulation by creating a cavity, or adding an external insulating material and cladding to insulate the building. These approaches have different benefits - working on the interior of the home can be disruptive, although the end result is very good. This type of insulation could be helpful if you’re planning on using your garage or an outbuilding as living space at a later stage, but it isn’t currently occupied, for example. Adding exterior insulation is less common but less disruptive too, so this is an option we would consider for an already inhabited area of the home.
Know Your R Values
One thing you’ll hear and read about when considering insulation for your home, is R Values. But what are they? Actually, it’s relatively simple to understand - the R Value is a measure of how well a material resists the flow of heat - so how well it can insulate an area. The higher the R Value, the more insulating properties a product has. So when you’re deciding the best insulation for your home you’ll need to weigh up the best balance between cost and R Value, and know the optimal R Value for your area, which is decided based on the climate. We can help you figure it all out!
