Loose-fill fiber glass insulation utilizes a professional blowing machine for installation in open spaces to fill hard-to-reach areas like corners, edges and around framing. By using premium blown-in fiber glass insulation, which does not settle or decay, we can effectively provide insulation for the life of the home. Blown fiber glass can provide R-values from R-11 to R-60.
What does this mean for you?
Adding insulation to your home saves money and improves comfort. Adding insulation to your home is a sound investment that is likely to pay for itself quickly in reduced utility bills. Insulation inhibits heat flow through the building envelope of your home, saving money and improving comfort. Unless your home was specially constructed for energy efficiency, you can probably reduce your energy bills by adding more insulation. Many older homes have less insulation than homes built today, but even adding insulation to a newer home can pay for itself within a few years.To determine whether you should add insulation, you first need to find out how much insulation you already have in your home and where it is. A qualified home energy auditor will include an insulation check as a routine part of a whole-house energy assessment. An energy assessment will also help identify areas of your home that are in need of air sealing. (Before you insulate, you should make sure that your home is properly air sealed).
There are many home insulation types. For retro fit or existing homes, blown in fiber glass is the best choice, dollar for dollar due to it’s ability to out last the competition. Of course, your home, your money – we’ll install whatever you want – blown fiberglass, cellulose, batt insulation, or a combination if needed.
Where it’s going: “Because of the highest R-value at low cost, fiberglass will continue to be strong in green building, especially with consumers’ increasing awareness. From energy cost-savings to indoor air quality and room comfort, homeowners are more knowledgeable about home quality,” Hudock says. “You can see the big picture widening with topics like home energy audits and blower door tests in more insulation conversations. Where many trade professionals turn to proper sealing and fiberglass insulation as the lowest-cost, best-performing option, that understanding is also reaching consumers.
