The McFarlane family has worked in the Bergen/ Passaic areas for many years and is now expanding into home insulation as well. Rich has always had an interest in conserving energy and through the driveway restoration business has learned much about using materials and heat efficiently. Insulation is a natural extension of this knowledge and concern for conservation. A poorly insulated house can easily lose 25% of the energy needed to heat your home. This results in a significant decrease in your comfort level and money. However with the current Federal Tax Credits, you could reduce your energy usage and energy bills while getting money back – just for insulating your existing home. Rich and his crew are equipped to provide you with a more energy efficient home. Plus, they are a Local Company that is GREEN! The McFarlane Insulation division fills walls and attics with a cellulose insulation which contains over 75% recycled newspaper material – not fiberglass, which wastes a large amount of energy in production. The recycled cellulose insulation is blown in, sealing open areas around pipes, outlets, wires and lights providing a unified (no gaps) condition. This gives you the best protection in your home from losing heat – and provides additional protection in summer too. It can even be done over existing insulation to provide better R-value.
