When it comes to HVAC efficiency and comfort, the quality of your home’s insulation can make all the difference.

Builders Installed Products Albany can show you how retrofit insulation can reduce your energy bill and keep your home more comfortable.

House management can feel like a full-time job at times. Insulation repairs often fall to the bottom of the to-do list until they can’t be ignored. Some of the classic indicators that your home insulation is failing include:

Where you live, what type of heating and cooling system you use, and which area of your home needs to be insulated are key factors in determining your insulation project’s range and scope. R-value, or the thermal resistance of an insulating material, is another factor. Each type of insulation has a different R-value, and a higher R-value equates to better insulation efficiency.
R-value is determined by the insulation’s material, thickness and density. Depending on the U.S. region you reside in, there are different recommended insulation levels. Weather in upstate New York demands a particular type of insulation strategy. Here in the Albany County area, we are in zone 5.
Call 518-650-1100 and speak to a member of our Builders Installed Products Albany team to determine what R-value you currently have and where you need to be.
How much insulation already exists in your home, what kind of insulation it is, and where this insulation is located determines if you need to add insulation. The R-value and thickness of the existing insulation are also factors.
Old insulation typically doesn’t need to be removed unless it is wet, moldy, smelly, or contains animal waste. Contractors can often add new insulation on top of existing insulation. Your Builders Installed Products Albany technician can tell you if your current insulation is still usable and what types of insulation can go on top of it.
There are many insulation types, but the most common insulation materials are fiberglass, cellulose and foam. These insulation types come in various forms: loose-fill, batts, rolls, foam board, spray foam and radiant barriers.
Here are the common types of insulation found in most homes:
