If you’re looking to save money on your energy bills, blow-in insulation is something you should consider. It is essentially a loose-fill form of fibreglass or cellulose which is blown into place much like the name suggests. This type of insulation is a great option if you want to decrease your monthly energy bills as homeowners will see significant savings.
The reason this is possible is that it contains small bits of loose-fill material that is able to get into all of the nooks and crannies and hard to reach areas in the space it is being applied to. Once it is sprayed into place, blow insulation has the capability of sealing off the areas surrounding the pipes, which is something other forms of insulation would not be able to do. It’s often difficult to get a tight seal in certain areas, but with blow insulation, this is not a problem and you will not have any holes or cracks preventing the air inside from escaping outdoors and exchanging it with the unwanted air outside.
This means your home will not lose heat whenever it’s cold outside and it will not lose cool air whenever it’s hot outside either. When your heater and air conditioner don’t have to run as often or work as much, you will spend a lot less money operating them and also less on repairs resulting in big savings.
In addition, to blow insulation being energy efficient, this type of material comes with other benefits as well. The installation process is very fast, especially when compared to other types of insulation, so it can be done quickly. It also contains sound-dampening properties and is both flame-retardant and anti-fungal so there are several bonuses to choosing this option. Lastly, if the environment is important to you, you’ll be happy to know that blown insulation is a green choice for two reasons; it is made of recycled material and your house will be using less energy so choosing this option is an environmentally friendly solution.
Blown-in insulation is not limited to a certain space and can be applied anywhere that drafts occur including floors, walls and the attic. It is recommended that you begin with the attic because most of the home’s heat is normally lost through the roof, so the attic is always the best place to start. Once you start to see the savings, you can proceed by insulating your floors and walls.
