Are you one of the many who is constantly adjusting the thermostat, turning off lights in empty rooms, and chasing down other excess energy use around the house to keep your energy bills low? Did you know the simple project of insulating your attic, crawl space, and basement rim joists could save you 15% of your heating and cooling costs on average?
Whether you’re building a new home or making improvements to an established home, insulation is a key tool for energy efficiency as well as comfort. There are various types of insulation, but blow-in insulation has a unique set of benefits you won’t find elsewhere.
Accessible Insulation for Established Homes
Most people are familiar with batt insulation: sheet-like insulation that an installer places between the studs in your walls. While batt insulation can be laid in walls as a home is being built, specifically before the drywall has been installed, adding batt insulation to existing walls would involve removing the drywall and replacing it. That’s a massive job.
Blow-in insulation, on the other hand, is easy to install in existing walls using only small access holes that we can easily plug and re-seal.
Not every home’s walls have perfectly square spaces to lay insulation. Sometimes there are small crevices and if your insulation doesn’t reach them, these gaps will lower your energy efficiency.
Because blow-in insulation uses small, loose pieces, it can settle into all of those nooks and crannies inside your walls. Ultimately, this leads to more effective insulation.
Multiple Varieties for the Choosing
Insulation comes in several varieties, and we aren’t referring to blow-in insulation versus batt insulation or spray foam. Blow-in insulation comes in several different types of materials you can choose from, including loose-fill fiberglass, cellulose, and rock wool or mineral wool.
Each of these materials has its pros and cons and is ideal for different circumstances. With so many options at your disposal, blow-in insulation lets you choose the best fit for your home and your priorities.
Every homeowner loves a newly improved home, but the actual improvement process isn’t always fun. Generally, you want your project to be done as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality.
Blow-in insulation is perfect for this purpose. The installation is fast and efficient so that you can quickly check it off your to-do list and either enjoy your energy-efficient home or move on to the next step in your building process.
Keep in mind, though, that the installation is quick and easy for knowledgeable professionals, not for DIYers. To ensure that you get effective insulation and don’t damage your home in the process, it’s still important to hire professionals.
