Insulation Service

Just like you wear a coat in the winter to keep you warm, your home needs a “coat” in order to keep you and your family comfortable. With the proper amount of insulation, your home will have its own barrier between the climate outside and the interior. This barrier helps protect it from extreme temperatures and helps keep the temperature inside at an enjoyable level.

Whether your home is brand new and in need of fresh insulation or is older and doesn’t have enough of it, our insulation services can bring your home up to standards. Each part of the country has an R-value that determines the amount of insulation needed in order to withstand the climate and at P.J. Fitzpatrick, we offer insulation with the proper R-value to protect your home.

Insulation Benefits

While insulation is important during the winter months, it’s also equally as important during the summer months. In the winter, your home’s insulation helps trap the heat inside your home while blocking the frigid temperatures that are outside; in the summer, it’s just the opposite – your insulation helps keep the inside of your home cool while blocking the heat from the sun’s rays. With a home at the correct temperature, you can use your HVAC system, portable heaters, and fans less often and in turn, save money on your energy bills.

Another benefit of proper insulation is fact that it can act as a sound barrier between your home and the outdoors and between the rooms inside your home; you can enjoy added privacy as well as peace and quiet.

Evaluation

Even if your home already has insulation, it still may not be as protected as you think. Insulation loses effectiveness over time as it settles, and only 20% of houses constructed prior to 1980 have sufficient insulation. In addition, many types of insulation are not effective against heat transfer due to emission. If you’re not sure whether your home is properly insulated, let us give you an evaluation.

Insulation Installation

Our insulation specialists can evaluate your home to determine whether you need more insulation and if so, what kind you need. After that, we’ll get started on your installation as soon as possible.

Un-Insulated House

Homes that are un-insulated are subject to drafts, uneven temperatures from room to room, ice dams, high energy bills, and more.

Insulated

Each region of the U.S. has a specific insulation “R-value” that homes must meet in order to be safe, comfortable, and energy efficient.

Insulation is important to help fight heat transfer

There are three ways that heat can transfer from your home.

Conduction

Heat transfers through contact.

Convection

Heat transfer through movement of heated liquid or air.

Emission

Heat transfer from the sun.

USDOE Insulation Guidelines

The chart below shows how much insulation you should have in your home:

In the Delaware Valley region Attic insulation is recommended to be at least R38.

R-values measure only resistance to convection and conduction, which, while important, are not the only source of a rising power bill. Energy Reflective Insulation is different. By reflecting heat from the sun and providing a barrier between the house and the outside environment, it addresses that third, crucial way of losing and gaining heat, and the accompanying costs. When working in conjunction with existing house insulation, Energy Reflective Insulation provides a complete solution to thermal insulation. By taking a triple-tier approach to thermal insulation, you can create a virtually impenetrable barrier between the cozy interior of your home and the external climate.

At PJ Fitzpatrick we can bring your traditional attic insulation up to code, with either blown-in or batt insulation while adding a barrier to the third type of heat loss/gain; emission with Radiant Barrier Energy Reflective Insulation.
