BLOWN IN INSULATION
IS PERFECT FOR RENOVATIONS
AND NEW CONSTRUCTION
Insulate Your Attic & Walls with Blown In Insulation
Adding blown in, loose fill insulation to your attic & walls is the most economical way to reduce your home's heating & cooling costs. In fact, adding just a few inches of insulation to your attic could reduce your home's energy bills by as much as 30%. The long-term payoffs are quite impressive too. Most home owners notice an immediate difference and begin receiving a return on their insulation investment within the first few months If you need to add additional insulation to your attic or walls then blown in fiberglass or cellulose insulation is the most common choice.
To maximize your energy efficiency, you should air seal your attic with spray foam before you add additional insulation. If you already have insulation in your attic, air sealing your attic can be quite challenging, but the energy savings benefits can be substantial. If you are doing a major home renovation project, now may be the perfect time to air seal the space for an even greater savings.
Expanding foam insulation or spray foam is a great insulator, when applied correctly. It's unique characteristics allow it to expand into cracks & crevasses that can create an air tight seal between your living space and the outside elements. Spray foam insulation is the best type of insulation to use but it can be expensive and is recommended more for new construction applications because there in no insulation currently in place. For older homes, where some insulation was previously installed, spray foam insulation isn't always the best option because of the cost associated with removing the old insulation prior to installing expanding foam. Spray foam jobs can be 3 or 4 times more expensive then traditional blown in insulation jobs which means that your return on investment can take much, much longer.
