Insulation is your Long Island home’s protection against outside heat and cold. As an experienced insulation contractor, Green Homes Long Island will provide a comprehensive assessment of your home’s thermal insulation and then explain how insufficient insulation can affect your home’s comfort and efficiency. Many homeowners can save a significant portion of their total energy bill with a small investment in insulation.
R-Value is Essential Insulation Data
Insulation is rated based on its resistance to the transfer of heat. The higher the resistance, the higher the R-value. On Long Island, the required minimum for ceilings and attic insulation is R-38 for new construction. Many homes in our area do not meet these recommendations or have insulation compacted or damaged insulation.
Diagnosing Your Home Insulation Needs
The best way to find out where insulation is missing or ineffective is to have a home energy audit conducted. Using specially designed technology, we can pinpoint just where your insulation is failing to work. We’ll identify where air from the outside is leaking in through your building envelope. Once we have the audit results, we can recommend ways to ensure your home’s envelope performs as it should, including air sealing and improving insulation.
