Expert Attic Insulation Installers
Installing new or additional insulation in your attic is a great way to keep your home comfortable and protected from extreme external temperatures.

This greatly helps our ability to get insulation into every nook and cranny above your living space.

Types of Insulation Installation Available
Whether your home needs traditional insulation, blow-in insulation, or new spray foam insulation, Emmons has you covered. With modern methods, our insulation installers can improve your home’s energy efficiency, comfort, and protection from the elements.
The most common type of insulation found in homes in New Jersey and Pennsylvania is batt insulation. These sections, called batts, are essentially blankets of insulation designed to fit perfectly between the joists in your home. Installing this traditional form of insulation doesn’t require any special equipment, it simply needs to be cut to fit the area you are covering. To be most effective, batt insulation can’t have any gaps so it is not recommended for areas where there are many wires, pipes, or other potential obstructions. If moisture gets trapped in the insulation, you may need to replace those sections.
For more consistent coverage, many homes are now filled with blow-in insulation. This has become the preferred method because it is the easiest to install, although it does require very special machinery to do so. Since the insulation comes in the form of small chunks, it forms a nice tight seal around any joists or obstructions. It offers more equal coverage throughout the attic floor and maintains a higher resistance to conductive heat flow. Blow-in insulation is often the preferred choice for homeowners that need to add additional insulation as it can be easily laid on top of the existing insulation.
The newest and most effective way to insulate your home is with spray foam insulation. Not only is it a weather barrier and sound insulator, but it also seals leaks and any gaps inside your walls or other cavities. Spray foam insulation needs to be done properly because once the foam is sprayed it is difficult to manipulate. Typically installed in the walls of new construction homes, once hardened it can easily be cut into if you need to retrofit any plumbing or wiring. It offers the best insulative properties and will last a very long time with no real degradation.
Installing Additional Insulation In Your Home
The insulation installers at Emmons can add additional insulation over existing insulations and fill in any missing areas where your home may be inadequately insulated. We always recommend if you are adding insulation to have the service performed by a professional so that you do not create any areas of vapor-lock that can cause costly damage to your home. Keep in mind rolled insulation and blown-in insulation can be installed on top of old insulation. If you are unsure of your ability to add additional insulation to your home, contact us today for an inspection.
Thermal Insulation Materials
We install the most common insulation materials available today. Whether you are looking for an economical option or high-end insulation that will save you money for years to come, Emmons can work with you to determine the best course of action for installing new insulation in your home.
The most common insulation material used is fiberglass insulation. By weaving tiny strands of glass into a tuft, the material has an excellent ability to minimize heat transfer. It can be installed in rolls (batts) or blown-in, offering homeowners a flexible and affordable solution that is non-flammable.
This lightweight and very effective form of insulation is also the most expensive. Polyurethane spray foam tightly bonds to anything it touches forming a virtually impermeable barrier. There are different densities of this foam that affect how resistant it is.
Known as the most eco-friendly form of insulation, cellulose is made from recycled materials such as cardboard, paper, and other similar materials. It is applied as blown-in insulation as it comes in compact clumps. Surprisingly very fire resistant it is another affordable form of insulation.
Mineral Wool Insulation
Also able to be installed in rolls or by blowing into your attic, mineral wool is actually most commonly made from the byproducts of a steel mill. While not all types of mineral wool are fire-resistant, it does offer an effective way to insulate your home.
