5 Benefits of Blown Insulation
From easy installation to energy efficiency, blown insulation carries many benefits of home and business owners alike. The other option is fiberglass batts, which is the traditional way of insulating a home and attic. However, we prefer working with blown insulation in cellulose form for its ease of use and efficiency.
Here's a look at the five benefits of blown insulation:
1. Higher Efficiency
One of the biggest benefits of blown-in insulation is that it's more efficient than other types, mainly fiberglass batts. Because loose-fill insulation features a monolithic layer of insulation that does not have seams, it has been found to perform 22 percent better than fiberglass batts of the same R value. Blown in insulation is comprised of cellulose, primarily made from recycled newsprint, which means it's also more environmentally friendly.
A properly insulated attic will prevent heating and air conditioning from leaking, saving on energy consumption and costs annually.
2. Easy Installation
Blown-in insulation is fairly easy to install; it's also very quick. Usually two installers can insulate a typical home in just a few hours, whereby one person feeds material into a blowing machine in the truck while the other person stays in the attic to spread the insulation from the hose. Those same two installers installing batting in the attic, for example, would take at least double the time.
3. Good Investment
The addition of loose-fill insulation to your attic provides one of the fastest paybacks of any home improvement project you can undertake. The money you save on energy costs will pay off in the long run, more than paying for itself in the next couple of years and even bringing you a solid return on your investment (ROI).
4. Comprehensive Coverage
Because loose fill cellulose is designed to get into all nooks and crannies, coverage is complete and comprehensive. This material is blown in with a hose, quickly filling many of the cracks and crevices in the attic, and conforming to all areas. Blown insulation provides excellent coverage in an attic, as it blankets all of the wooden crossbeams, plumbing pipes, electrical wiring, and cables. You can't get this kind of all-over coverage with fiberglass batting.
5. Sound and Noise Dampening
When professionally installed, blown insulation can prevent or dampen noise from infiltrating your space, which is beneficial to those who use their attic or adjacent spaces for work or recreation purposes.
As you can see, there are many advantages to using blown insulation in your home. The key is to hire professionals to get the job done right. This ensures peak performance for the product, and a long-lasting installation that delivers results for years to come.
