Fiberglass insulation has long been the most common and trusted form of insulation on the market. This is because fiberglass is a relatively low-cost and effective solution for controlling temperatures inside homes, offices, and structures of all kinds. Fiberglass insulation keeps your air conditioner from working longer and harder than necessary, driving up your home’s energy consumption. This saves you money on energy bills and reduces your home’s strain on the environment.
This insulation comes in two forms: blown fiberglass insulation and fiberglass batt insulation. Fiberglass batts are blankets rolled out between beams in attics and walls, while blown fiberglass generally comes in bags to be evenly distributed.
Fiberglass for insulating homes has many benefits, including:
1) It does not deteriorate over time
2) It is naturally non-combustible so it needs no extra fire-retardant chemicals like cellulose does
3) It is non-absorbent so it will not pick up extra moisture, which reduces insulation r-value and promotes mold growth
4) It significantly lowers yearly home energy costs
5) It can be made from recycled materials
6) Insulation, including fiberglass, spray foam, cellulose, and radiant foil, should be properly installed by a professional insulation contractor for the most complete protection for optimal energy savings.

Fiberglass insulation is one of two kinds of insulation. Fiberglass based blown-in insulation is made from molten glass that is spun into fibers. Most manufacturers use 20%–30% recycled glass content. Blown-In insulation that is attic is growing more popular each year. It runs easily and quickly in most houses and has some benefits over the fiberglass batts. Because it can be blown into walls and attics it is good for old homes.
How Is Blown-In Insulation Applied?
Fiberglass insulation must be applied using an insulation blowing machine. It’s designed for both open-blow applications (such as attic spaces) and closed-cavity programs (like walls or vaulted ceilings). Blown-in insulation produces a tight match in every stud cavity and seals around all outlets, pipes, wires, etc.. This tight seal produces this insulation as an insulator in addition to a fantastic sound barrier. Our installers have been trained by producing the ideal mix between the netting used to contain the substance and the amount of compression to get rid of the settling of the insulation.
Why Blown-In Insulation?
1) It is very easy to install in open wall spaces.
2) The tight seals it generates bring increased noise control and a dramatic reduction in your heating and cooling costs.
3) You can benefit from the rebates and tax credits from utility companies and the federal government.
4) Cellulose insulation is the next of two types of blown-in insulating material. It is composed of up to 85% recycled newsprint. The rest of the content is a mixture of borate and ammonium sulfate that serves as a flame retardant. These compounds have the extra benefit of deterring insects, rodents, and mold. It can take any shape and fits easily into spaces such as vaulted ceilings because Blown-in insulating material is substance. Also, since it can be blown into walls and attics without much disturbance for the homeowner or harm to the home, it’s excellent for older homes.
1) There are two different types of this kind of insulating material. Our team of specialists will determine the perfect choice for your circumstances.
2) Dry Pack Cellulose–With Dry Pack, the wall/ceiling is coated with”netting” that closely contains the substance in each cavity and removes settling.
3) Spray Applied Cellulose–Spray Applied Cellulose differs since the cellulose is blended with latex adhesive, misted with water to activate the glue, and blown into wall cavities.
How Is Blown-In Cellulose Insulation Applied?
Cellulose blown-in insulation must be applied using an insulation blowing machine. It is created for both open-blow programs (such as attic spaces) and closed-cavity applications (such as walls or vaulted ceilings). Blown-in insulation produces a tight fit in each stud cavity and seals around all sockets, pipes, wires, etc..
Why Blown-In Cellulose Insulation?
1) It’s very easy to install in open wall spaces.
2) The tight seals it generates brings increased sound control and also a dramatic decrease in your heating and cooling costs.
3) You can take advantage of the rebates and tax credits from utility companies and the national government.

How Attic Insulation Works
Attic insulation functions year-round to keep indoor temperatures more constant, reducing the requirement. In the summertime, insulation along the attic floor retains heat that is precious from rising into the attic and speeding through the roof. In the summertime, it prevents from seeping into your living spaces any attic heat.
When installed properly and to the Appropriate levels, loft insulation offers an impressive Assortment of benefits, including:
1) More stable indoor temperatures
2) A cooler home in the summertime
3) A warmer house in the chilly
4) Reduced need to conduct the HVAC system
5) Lower energy bills
6) Greater energy efficiency
Our Attic Insulation Process
While the insulation process varies from home to home, an attic insulation project may include a range of steps, such as the installation of fiberglass insulation, Air Sealing, Insulation Removal, and Radiant Barrier Installation.
Insulation may deteriorate or be damaged over time due to mold growth, excess moisture exposure, dirt and dust accumulation, or insect infestation. Our staff can determine if your existing attic insulation has settled or be damaged, and if so, perform professional insulation removal in a way that prepares the attic space for re-insulation and protects your home.
It’s very important to seal air leaks that let air travel freely into and out of the loft, before laying down insulation. These leaks are usually found around recessed lighting, wiring and plumbing penetrations, the loft hatch, and roof joists. Our team uses high-expansion spray foam to seal air leaks before installing insulation.
Fiberglass Insulation Installment
After any damaged insulation is eliminated and all air leaks are sealed, our team will install blown-in fiberglass insulation. Fiberglass is at stabilizing indoor temperatures, effective and can fill even the smallest spaces in the attic. We use high tech gear to blow fiberglass into the loft without bothering your home.
Radiant Barrier Installation
For additional protection against the summer heat, we may also advise installing a radiant barrier. Installed across the roof rafters and loft walls, there is a barrier made.
Is It Time?
