Foam Board Insulation

There are many types of insulation, each with a different purpose to help make your home more comfortable and energy-efficient. Foam board insulation is known for its resistance to moisture and high r-value, ranging from 4-6 per inch, depending on the material.

There are many benefits of adding foam board insulation to your home, including:

  • Lower energy bills

  • Improved home efficiency

  • Healthier indoor air quality

  • Reduced moisture intrusion

  • Lower impact on the environment

Home Efficiency Experts installs high R-value foam board and can determine how thick foam board insulation should be for ideal performance in your home.

Where to Install Foam Board Insulation in Your Long Island Home

Foam board insulation can be installed in many different areas throughout your home, including:

  • Moisture-prone areas like basements and crawl spaces

  • Attic pull-down staircases

  • Duct sealing

  • Storage sheets in the attic

  • Knee wall hatches

Foam board insulation is better than fiberglass and other materials in these applications because it acts as an air sealant and moisture barrier in addition to being an insulator. If you don’t insulate these areas properly, warm heated air can escape during the winter months, and heat will infiltrate your home when running your air conditioning system in the summer, raising your monthly energy costs.

Extend the Life of Your HVAC Systems with Foam Board Insulation

A lack of sufficient insulation and air sealing can cause your home to easily lose the conditioned, healthy air your HVAC systems produce year-round.

When this happens, your HVAC equipment will have to work harder and use more energy to keep your home comfortable, which will not only increase your monthly utility costs but also put a lot of unnecessary strain on your HVAC system. This can cause your heating and air conditioning systems to develop unnecessary wear and tear, leading to higher maintenance costs, more repairs, and even full system breakdowns. Without the right type and amount of insulation, you may end up needing an expensive, premature HVAC replacement.
