5 Benefits of Blown-In Insulation

Insulating your home is a no-brainer; it’s an investment that pays off in more ways than one. With rising energy costs and increasing concerns about environmental sustainability, more homeowners are turning to blown-in insulation as the solution to comfort and efficiency.

Blown-in insulation involves using loose-fill insulation material, usually made from recycled cellulose or fiberglass, which is blown into the walls, attic, or crawl spaces of a home.

Here’s how blown-in insulation can help your home (and your energy bills):

1.  It’s Quick and Easy

Blowing the insulation takes about 90 minutes or so, and most jobs can be completed from start to finish in under four hours, based on a 1,000-square-foot attic. The self-feeding system puts insulation where you want it, helping to minimize reworks. There’s no precision cutting and measuring like with batt insulation. Blown-in insulation can be installed much faster and with less effort.

2.  There’s No Mess

Compare that to traditional insulation methods, where contractors may have to tear down walls, cut holes, or even remove floorboards. It’s a lengthy experience that can impact your daily life. But with machine-guided blown-in insulation, clean-up is quick and easy. There’s less waste and better coverage, giving you more for your money.

During installation, the machine does all the work inside the system. There’s no dust or mess to clean up afterward, allowing us to leave your space as good as or better than we found it.

3.  It’s Safe and Reliable

One key advantage of blown-in insulation is its safety profile. Fiberglass blown-in insulation is non-combustible, meaning it does not ignite easily nor will it feed a fire if one were to erupt. It also does not emit harmful fumes or toxins, offering a safe solution for daily living.

4.  It’s Highly Effective

Blown-in insulation offers superior energy efficiency compared to traditional insulation. Its unique installation method allows for seamless coverage of hard-to-reach areas to give you thermal performance throughout the home.

By effectively sealing gaps and crevices that traditional methods may miss, you can expect consistent indoor temperatures year-round and keep more of your heated or cooled air in your home. In turn, this means less wear and tear on your HVAC system, which may help it last longer.

5.  It’s Eco-Friendly

Blown-in insulation is an eco-friendly choice for homeowners. It’s made from recycled materials, helping to minimize the amount of waste in landfills and limiting the need for new materials to be created. By choosing this type of insulation, homeowners are creating a more sustainable living environment while contributing to the conservation of natural resources.
