Blown-In Cellulose Insulation

This year, think about upgrading your attic with blown-in cellulose or fibreglass insulation for a better, more comfortable indoor experience. Upgrading your attic insulation can have a huge effect on your home by offering you better protection from the elements, helping to reduce air flow in your attic, and by lowering your monthly energy bills. Choosing to use blown-in cellulose insulation has a positive effect on the environment too - not only does it help you reduce your energy needs, but it’s made from recycled consumer paper products, giving new life to materials otherwise destined for the landfill. Blown in fibreglass insulation resists mold growth and is unfriendly to pests - and it won’t break down over time and need costly maintenance or repairs. Better still, both insulation types are an easy way to top up existing insulation, boosting your home’s efficacy at keeping a stable temperature.

Types of Loose Fill Insulation

There are two distinct loose fill insulation products on the market today: cellulose or fibreglass blown in insulation. While each has their individual advantages, both will do an exceptional job at increasing your home’s resistance to heat flow and help keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Below are some of benefits and drawbacks of each type of insulation. If you’re worried about which one is right for you home, trust the experts - at EcoComfort we’ll help you choose the insulation material that is right for your budget and right for the needs of your home, ensuring that your product works at its best and that you’re comfortable all year round.

How New Blown In Insulation Improves Your Home’s Performance

If your home has newer insulation but still isn’t performing as well as it could be, blown in insulation is a great way to give your insulation a boost. Since your attic is one of the biggest causes of heat loss in both new and old homes, topping up existing insulation can make a big difference. Because loose-fill type insulation is made up of many small pieces, it can also act like a stopper, filling up holes or crevasses that batts don’t fit into.

Loose fill insulation is also a great idea when you aren’t in the right place to undertake a huge renovation project. For example: if you find your living room is often drafty and cold, it may benefit from a little more insulation in the exterior walls. Instead of removing all of that drywall to install new insulation batts, small holes can be drilled in the walls between the studs and loose fill insulation poured in to fill up the cavities, offering you additional protection and indoor comfort. Because installing loose-fill insulation can be done with minimal assistance, our teams are small and thorough. Clean up is minimal and installation can often be completed in a few hours with as little disruption to your day as possible.

Regardless of your choice, both products are excellent options for insulating your attic, and a reputable contractor at EcoComfort can give you an in-depth breakdown of the advantages of each.  Improving your thermal performance will help you save money on your heating and cooling bills, ease your impact on the environment, and help you have more thorough insulation coverage in your attic.
