Weather extremes are a big part of life in Chino, CA, and that means your home’s insulation is critical. When your home loses heat through its attic, your heating system needs to work harder to keep you warm. Likewise, during the cooling season, insulation keeps conditioned air inside the building and prevents wear and tear on your air conditioner. Read on to learn how blown (blown-in) insulation can lead directly to energy savings.
What Is Blown-In Insulation?
There are several options for insulating your home, all of which have their advantages and disadvantages. Blown-in insulation is a type of loose-fill insulation that we blow into your attic using special equipment. Blown insulation is made from cellulose, fiberglass or mineral wool.
Benefits of Blown-In Insulation
Adding more insulation to your home is advantageous for one big reason: energy savings. When your attic is properly insulated, you will conserve heating energy during the heating season and air conditioning power during the cooling season. Better insulation not only lowers your electric bills but also reduces wear and tear on your temperature control systems. You’ll save even more down the road on repairs and maintenance.
Blown-in, loose-fill insulation can lead to even greater cost savings in many cases because it easily fills the targeted space. While other types of insulation such as fiberglass batts and rolls may be difficult to use in hard-to-reach spaces, loose-fill insulation easily fills the entire area with no missing spots or gaps. Moreover, you can use blown-in insulation to complement any other type of insulation. Even if your attic already has fiberglass batts, rigid fiber, for example, you can still use blown insulation to fill hard-to-reach areas or gaps.
