New York Insulation Specialists
You probably didn’t know that the majority of New York homes built before 1980 are under-insulated. This means heat can escape through the ceiling, past the roof, and into the atmosphere. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, adding insulation to the attic is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to help cut heating and cooling costs. And it will make your home more comfortable. As a general rule, if you have less than 12 inches of attic insulation, you probably need more.
Insulating a New York residential structure to the levels recommended by the Department of Energy should result in net energy savings, over time, above the cost of the insulation project.
Showers, cooking, washing, and even breathing can put a surprising amount of moisture into your home—from 5 to 10 pounds a day! Washing and drying clothes indoors can add another 30 pounds. In the winter, any moisture that passes through these surfaces can accumulate and condense on the cold inner sides of exterior surfaces. Eventually, this condensation may blister the outside paint, form stains on drywall ceilings or walls, or even damage your home’s structure.

Why New York Should Hire Us For Their Insulation
You need our Clover Heating & Cooling experts for your insulation services because we’re one of the few HVAC and plumbing companies that consider all your home’s systems for home performance and energy conservation like ensuring you have the right insulation in the right places and ensuring there is proper ventilation to keep moisture factors under control.
When your attic or crawlspace is properly ventilated, a positive airflow is created, which allows the house to breathe and helps prevent moisture build-up. In hot weather, proper ventilation prevents the attic from becoming a hot box and transferring unwanted heat down through the attic floor (even if the attic is insulated) into the living area.
In cold weather, proper ventilation helps prevent moisture from condensing on the insulation, structural wood, and the underside of the roof deck.
Other heating and cooling companies sub-contract insulation installers, but at Clover Heating & Cooling, we consider it an integral part of making your home function properly all the way around. Our technicians are certified insulation specialists because we believe comfort starts with a leak-proof home, and we won’t rely on someone else to do this crucial job.
