Whether you know it or not, your home is constantly leaking energy. Your attic being the main place it is lost from, especially if your home is 10-15 years old. A well-insulated home is a great way to reduce energy costs and save money throughout the year. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heating and cooling consume 48% of the energy used in one’s home. For most homes, that is the largest energy expense. By investing in blown-in insulation you can save up to 20% on your home’s heating and cooling energy costs.
Blown in VS. Standard Insulation
Blown insulation is tighter than standard insulation. This prevents airflow from entering the attic. Small crevices and tight corners are also sealed since the material does not take much space. The tighter the material is, the more efficient it will work.
Installing blown in insulation is a very quick and easy procedure. It typically covers a 1000 sq ft attic in less than 1.5 hours. The material is simply blown out of a hose into the space to create a seamless thermal protective blanket of insulation, and it’s mess free!
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 where air typically leaks through. If properly installed, it can make your attic 100% airtight. It has the ability to fill in around beams, pipes, and other uniquely shaped objects and spaces.
Blown in insulation is made from recycled products. This allows you to both save energy in your home and put recycled materials to good use.
Like many other high quality and energy-efficient materials, blown in insulation can be more costly than lower quality alternatives, but it can create substantial savings in your energy bills. The extra cost spent on installation will typically be recovered by your utility savings over the next 2-4 years.
