Benefits Of Installing Blow-In Insulation In Your Attic

Improving the insulation in your attic is a great way to reduce energy costs and inprove the comfort of your entire home! 

Ensure that your home’s insulation is thick enough to keep heat, or air-conditioned air, inside your home.  According to the US Department of energy, 43% of all the energy consumed in a home is due to heating and air conditioning.  The better insulated your home is, the more money you save on your utility bill.

Start with the attic first, as it will give you the best return in energy savings for your effort.  If you live in a climate with cold winters, adding wall insulation should come next.  Spray foam insulation in spaces between insulation panels, or any cracks you see in your walls and attic space.

There are many different types of insulation, each with its own properties.

How Will Better Insulation Help You?

  • Energy Efficient

This is one of the most energy efficient types of insulation available. As it is blown into the barrier, it expands to fill up even the tiniest cracks. If properly installed, it can make your attic 100% airtight.

  • Reduced Allergies

Fiberglass and other insulating materials can be very dangerous for people with allergies. However, all insulating products have compounds that can lead to allergic reactions, so it is important to put the product inside a sealed blanket to prevent leakage.

  • Noise Reduction

Since this insulation is a tighter fit, it prevents noise from traveling out of the room. This especially beneficial if you are using your attic for work or playing music

  • Saves Money

  • Environmentally Friendly

Fiberglass is toxic and harmful to the environment. In contrast, blown in insulation can be made from recycled products. This allows you to both save energy in your home and put recycled materials to good use. You can’t get much greener than that.

  • Mosture Prevention

Moisture is extremely bad for attics. Over time, moisture can cause cracks in concrete, breed dangerous mold, or create a foul smell. Moisture can also make insulation useless, but that isn’t the case with this material. As long as there are no cracks in the barrier, your attic will be effectively moisture-proof.

  • Costs

Blown in installation is a fair deal more expensive than normal insulation. However, housing experts will tell you that the extra cost will be recovered with 2-4 year just by the amount of energy saved. Since this product is fairly simple to install, you can also save hundreds of dollars by installing it yourself. All you need are some 2×4 planks of wood and basic tools.
