A company for installing house insulation?

spray foam insulation installationAnon emails:

I'm looking for a competent, reasonably-priced spray foam insulation contractor for my home. I need to have old cellulose insulation removed from parts of my basement, and spray foam installed throughout the basement. Thank you

Based on what we've seen on, um, HGTV and a little bit of what we've read, spray foam insulation is said to do the job very well, better than other types of insulation. It also looks like it's a whole process, with installers wearing ventilated suits and whatnot.

Got a suggestion for Anon? Please share!

We'd love to assist you in this endeavor. I'm Tom, from Aloha Energy. We're the only Polyurethane Foam Manufacturer in the area. We actually have our office in Saratoga Springs and our factory in Schenectady. We make the "greenest of the green" high content bio-renewable, spray and injection foam insulations in the industry. A combination of polyols made from sucrose, castor and our big one - oil from the shells of cashew nuts.
We have a number of installers in the area and if you care to call us we'll be happy to connect you with the most appropriate professional to help you out.

Best Regards,
Tom

Your best option is to go through the state's Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program. This program offers attractive finance options for whole-house energy improvements, especially for insulation. You also get 10% cash back. For more information, visit http://stars.nyserdagreenny.org/started
When you use a participating Home Performance contractor, you will be able to access the incentives and financing available through the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). You can also call 1-877-NY-SMART to get started.

If you want to think outside the box, try Aloha Energy in Saratoga. They insulate with a bio-renewable soy foam. Costs are comparable to traditional methods. They insulated our garage a few years ago and we're happy with the result.

I second the recommendation to work through the nyserda program. Good guidance, money back and I even got a free follow up inspection from nyserda on the work my contractor did.
