Looking for a way to improve your home’s energy efficiency?
Blown-In Attic insulation may be the answer.
This foamy material is sprayed onto surfaces to create an airtight seal. You can use blown-in insulation in both residential and commercial buildings, and it offers many benefits over other types of insulation.
In this post, we’ll discuss the top 6 benefits of blown-in attic insulation!
You Save Money
Blown-in insulation’s airtight seal prevents heat from escaping through cracks and gaps in your walls, ceilings, and floors. It immediately improves your home’s energy efficiency.
With foam insulation, you can keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer months.
But does this actually save you money?
Yes! Anywhere between 30 to 50 percent when your entire home is insulated.
You Hear Less Noise
Blown-in insulation can also help reduce noise pollution levels in your home.
Especially if you live in a busy area or have noisy neighbors, blown-in insulation can dampen the noise entering your home.
You Breathe Healthier Indoor Air
This insulation also keeps your air healthy. First, it stops foreign intruders, like insects and rodents (and their tinier counterparts like dust and pollen) dead in their tracks.
Next, this foam also gives you a balanced temperature throughout your home, reducing moisture from openings where water can seep through. Think: around pipes and vents. This is crucial because moisture can cause bacteria, mold, and mildew to form or, worse, your home to rot.
Keep in mind when typical insulation gets wet, you need to replace it. Whereas blown-in foam retains its properties (no matter how wet it gets).
And since this material can squeeze into the tiniest nooks and crannies of your home, there’s much less risk of water getting into your home in the first place.
Your Home Becomes Fire Resistant
There’s also a key safety feature with blown-in insulation: It helps protect your home in the event of a fire.
It can even help contain a fire in one space, preventing it from spreading to other parts of your home.
One and Done Job
Unlike fiberglass or cellulose insulation, which can break down, sag, or shift over time– blow in insulation stays put.
This means you’ll need to regularly maintain cellulose and eventually replace your fiberglass.
Plus, installing blown-in foam is very simple! No matter what time of year or how hard your space is to reach (a crawl space, for example), you can use blown-in insulation.
It’s also a non-intrusive process.
All it takes is a team of professionals using a foam gun to spray the material onto your desired area.
This insulation also dries quickly, so it can be ready in about one day!
You’re Picking an Eco-Friendly Option
Since blown-in insulation consists of recycled materials (and does not contain any harmful chemicals), it’s also very eco-friendly and sustainable.
Keep your home (or office) protected!
