Insulation that is blown in is also referred to as "blown-in" or "blown" insulation. Whichever phrase you choose is irrelevant. What is significant is the increased energy efficiency that blown insulation ensures in any unfinished attic.
According to research from the Department Of Energy, the majority of attics are inadequately insulated. A typical home's attic in Sarasota is likely to be less than R-20 insulated. However, the Department of Energy recommends insulating to at least R-38 in the Sarasota area while building codes are just R30.
When it comes to attic insulation, blown insulation is an excellent choice because it provides an economical way to make your home's attic significantly more efficient. When it comes to attic insulation, Insulation Plus of Sarasota is one of the area's best-rated insulation contractors installing insulation in several thousand homes every year right here in the Sarasota area.
Blown Insulation Is Economical.
The combination of insufficient insulation and excessive air leakage may result in significant energy loss. That is why home improvement experts recommend combining insulation upgrades along with other attic efficiency upgrades. For instance, when attic insulation is combined with a new solar attic fan energy costs can drop by up to 40%!
The cost of insulation services and a new solar attic fan is easily offset by the savings you get on your energy bills and often covers the initial expense in 1-2 seasons depending on the size of your home. Both of these energy-efficiency modifications are often accomplished in a single day!
Types Of Common Blown-In Insulation For Your Attic
Fiberglass and cellulose are both types of blown insulation. Some insulation installers specialize in blown fiberglass insulation, while others specialize in cellulose insulation. Some contractors are capable of installing both kinds of blown insulation. Blown fiberglass and blown cellulose both have comparable R-values however there are benefits to blown-in fiberglass that puts it ahead of cellulose, especially here in the Sarasota area. This is something we’ve written about in past blogs so be sure to check that out on our website.
The installation process is the same for blown fiberglass and blown cellulose. Outside the home, a shredding and blowing device propels the blown insulation via a long, flexible pipe into the attic, where a specialist controls the flow. Blown fiberglass and blown cellulose insulation may be placed straight over previous attic insulation if it’s in excellent condition.
If you haven't already made this energy-saving investment, now is the time. Once completed, there is no upkeep required. An insulation update is a one-time investment that will benefit you for the duration of your home's ownership.
