Increasing the R-value of your insulation may help you to money on energy bills and maximize the energy efficiency of your home. Blown-in insulation is a environmentally conscious, cost effective way to increase your attic’s insulation, which in turn may help lower your cooling and heating bills. For maximum energy efficiency, we recommend a powerful combination of insulation and proper air sealing. This can help eliminate air leaks that pass through recessed light fixtures, plumbing areas, and duct work.
Blown-in insulation slows heat transfer from your attic to the lower levels of your home during the hot summer and works hard to keep the warm air inside your home during the cold winter months. The attic is the main location where heat enters and exits the home, making it difficult to keep your home temperatures consistent. Proper insulation can target reducing heat transfer while also allowing your HVAC system to increase its performance.
One of the many positive benefits Blown-in insulation has is that it is environmentally friendly. Not only does it improve the energy efficiency of your home, but it also helps protect the environment.
Cellulose is made up of 80% recycled materials, with the remaining consisting of non-toxic borate solution. This solution gives the insulation a Class-1 fire safety rating and makes it mold and pest resistant. Certain fiberglass products can contain up to 80% recycled glass products and is non-combustible.
Blown-in insulation not only protects your home from energy loss, butal so helps reduce emissions associated with heating and cooling equipment. For those home owners who are looking for economical ways to reduce their environmental impact, curb energy waste, and increase the comfort of your home, blown-in insulation may be the solution for you!
