Insulation

Inadequate or improperly installed insulation is a continuing and expensive source of energy loss. Typically, the first, and most obvious, place to improve the year-Westchester, Putnam and Fairfield Counties Energy Solutions Insulation Checkround efficiency and comfort of your home is the attic. But other everyday sources of energy loss can also include basements, crawlspaces, the framing around your windows and doors, as well as your roofing and siding. There are several different types of insulation materials to choose from, and your Franzoso Energy auditor can help you decide which ones will work best for your home.

Air leaks created by gaps, cracks, and other often-unseen openings in the structure of your home are the Number 1 cause of energy waste in homes throughout the nation. In fact, the EPA estimates that homeowners can typically save up to 20% of heating and cooling costs (or up to 10% of total energy costs) by air sealing their homes, and installing or adding insulation in their attics, crawl spaces, and basements.

In the process of the home energy audit, your auditor will identify and record the locations of all “air intervention” sources — windows and doors, switch plates and outlet covers, recessed lighting fixtures, attic access doors, vents, basement, crawlspace and other areas and sources.

Sealing or replacing leaky ductwork can also go a long way toward stemming energy loss, another source of high home-energy bills. Your auditor can 
use of an infrared camera — thermographic inspection pinpoint air leaks in ducts, doors and windows and other areas of your home.

To seal leaks in the various parts of your home, Franzoso uses an up-to-date variety of sealants, foams, dense-packed cellulose, eShield and other barrier insulations and technologies to improve and maintain higher indoor air quality, reduce airborne pollutants and allergens, and save energy costs.
