Blown Attic Insulation

Blown insulation is the better choice for attic insulation. What is the process? Our installers use a hose that is connected to a large machine that blows smaller chunks of insulation through the hose. As the insulation is sprayed out of the hose, we will direct the insulation to the flooring in the attic. 

There are two choices when it comes to blown insulation: fiberglass and cellulose. Each has pros and cons. Cellulose has an R value of approximately 3.0 per inch and it’s made by recycling old newspapers. Fiberglass has an R value ranging from 2.1 - 2.7, and it’s made of sand. You may be asking, "why use blown insulation?" The answer is simple: blown insulation helps insulate both small and large openings in the attic space.

Spray Foam Insulation 

Spray foam insulation is an alternative to more commonly used insulation such as fiberglass and batts. When we spray the foam into roof tiles, sub floors, and wall cavities, a two-part component mixture made from isocyanate and polyol resin comes together at the tip of the gun that creates expanding foam. The foam continues to expand, filling small holes and crevices. 
Fiberglass Insulation 
Fiberglass is one of the most commonly used types of insulation for homes and commercial spaces. It’s affordable and helps reduce the spread of heat, cold air, and noise in properties. When you use fiberglass insulation in your property, you are effectively trapping air in your home, which is a convenient way to make your home more energy efficient. 

Fiberglass is an attractive option because it poses no fire hazard. According to some estimates, fiberglass insulation can save you up to 40% of energy loss from your home.
