Save Money With Insulation In Your Home

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 adding insulation in attics, floors over crawl spaces, and accessible basement rim joists.

According to energy star, in order to get the biggest savings, the easiest place to start is usually in the attic. A quick way to see if you need more insulation is to look across your uncovered attic floor. If your insulation is level with or below the attic floor joists, you probably need to add more. The recommended insulation level for most attics is R-38 (or about 12 – 15 inches, depending on type).

Insulation/Spray Foam Insulation

Types of Insulation Services

Choates HVAC provides insulation services for the following:

Vapor Barrier

A vapor barrier is a material used to reduce the amount of water vapor that can pass through the insulation and into your walls, floors and ceilings. This helps prevent condensation from forming, which can lead to mold growth, higher energy bills and other problems. It also helps keep the insulation in better condition for longer.

Attic Door Covers

Attic door covers are insulation that covers doors leading into attics. This insulation helps trap air inside so that it stays warm in cold weather and cool in warm weather, while also preventing drafts from entering the attic. It can also provide an extra layer of soundproofing.

Air Sealing Around the Furnace

Air sealing around furnaces helps ensure air isn't leaking out or coming into your home through gaps or cracks around the furnace. Doing so can reduce energy costs by stopping heated or cooled air from escaping. It can also help maintain healthy indoor air quality by preventing contaminants from coming in through gaps.

Types of Insulation

Choate's offers different types of insulation, including:


Fiberglass is a type of insulation made from spun glass fibers, and it fills cavities in walls, floors and ceilings to increase energy efficiency in a home. Fiberglass insulation is one of the most energy-efficient products you can install in your home. It helps reduce energy usage for heating and cooling by 50-60% and seals difficult areas that might otherwise be left uninsulated. In addition, fiberglass provides an excellent sound barrier for any noisy environment.

Less Energy Usage for Heating and Cooling

By installing fiberglass insulation into your home, you can significantly reduce the energy used for heating and cooling. This helps lower your energy bills and assists in protecting the environment by reducing emissions from fossil fuels.

Seals Difficult Areas

Fiberglass insulation can seal difficult areas that would otherwise be impossible to insulate with traditional materials. The flexibility of fiberglass allows it to fill small or irregularly shaped spaces while still providing effective insulation against heat transference.

Great Sound Barrier

Fiberglass insulation's dense layers of fibers make it an excellent sound barrier. This means that when installed along walls or ceilings, it can reduce noise emanating from external sources like traffic or plumbing fixtures inside the house. An insulation contractor from Choate’s Air Conditioning, Heating, and Plumbing can help you determine the best fiberglass insulation for your needs and install it professionally.

Spray Foam

Spray foam is a popular type of insulation made from polyurethane foam. Designed to fill hard-to-reach areas, it provides superior insulation against heat transfer and an effective sound barrier. Spray foam insulation comes with a range of distinct benefits, including:

Increased energy efficiency

Spray foam insulation has a much higher R-value than traditional fiberglass insulation, meaning it's more effective in helping to keep homes insulated and reducing energy costs.

Improved comfort levels

As well as providing superior insulation from temperature fluctuations, spray foam helps reduce noise levels throughout the home by blocking air infiltration and improving soundproofing.

Easy installation

Spray foam is easy to install and can be used in difficult-to-reach areas that may not be equipped for fiberglass installation.


Spray foam insulation also protects against pests and other unwanted intruders, making it much more durable than traditional fiberglass insulation.  For those searching for "spray foam insulation near me," look no further than Choate’s Air Conditioning, Heating, and Plumbing. Our experienced staff is well-equipped to handle residential and commercial spray foam insulation, providing superior energy efficiency and soundproofing to your home or business.

Insulation FAQs:

How Does Home Insulation Work?

Home insulation prevents heat transfer, either in or out of the house. The most common type of insulation is fiberglass, which consists of multiple layers of spun glass fibers that trap air and act as a barrier against temperature fluctuations. Other materials, such as spray foam, can also be used for insulation, providing good soundproofing properties and increased energy efficiency.

How Much Money Can Insulation Save?

Insulating your home can save you money in the long run by reducing energy costs and allowing your HVAC system to operate more efficiently. Depending on the type of insulation used and its R-value, homeowners may recoup up to 40% of their initial investment within a few years.

Will I Get a Return on an Attic Insulation Investment?

Yes, attic insulation is one of the most cost-effective ways to reduce energy costs and improve comfort levels in your home. When properly installed, attic insulation can help homeowners save up to 40% on their monthly energy bills, resulting in a return on investment within a few years.

Does Insulation Reduce Sound?

Yes, insulation can reduce sound levels in your home by blocking air infiltration and providing an effective barrier against external noise sources. Spray foam insulation effectively provides superior soundproofing properties while offering increased energy efficiency.
