You don’t have to spend many hours or days tolerating the cold weather around your home and in your attic. Blown-in insulation is the ideal option for you, and it comes in cellulose or fiberglass. These materials have comparable R-values and features for your heating needs. The blown material provides a protective thermal blanket for your Rochester home, among other benefits.
Benefits of Blown-In Attic Insulation
1. It Saves Energy
If you’re a homeowner, you’d know how important saving on energy costs is. You wouldn’t want a situation where you’re paying over the odds to stay warm. The blown-in material locks in cooler indoor attic temperatures during summer so that heated and cooled air doesn’t leak out. It effectively seals all the tiny crevices to enhance HVAC performance and indoor comfort, thereby saving up to 50% of your energy bills.
2. Fire Protection
With a combination of cellulose and fiberglass that forms an airtight seal, there’s a reduced risk of fire. It’s that seal that stops air from flowing through small spaces into a fire so that the flames aren’t stoked. These materials are important to protect your investment and keep your attic warm.
For homeowners that like keeping the home quiet, a blown material helps create a tight seal in your attic that mutes indoor noise from one room to the other, coupled with the sound buffer to reduce noise from the outdoors. As a result, you get to feel safer and comfortable in your home.
4. Reduced Condensation
If you want condensation and moisture out of your attic, an airtight seal of blown material contributes to that. Also, the seal makes it easier to keep mold, mildew, and bacteria at bay, and you’ll have just enough cooling to prevent rot and odors from forming. When there’s less condensation and moisture, the likelihood of your roof getting damaged is minimal.
