Commonly referred to as blown in insulation because of how it is installed, it can be made of a variety of materials like newspaper, cardboard and cotton. The materials, which are often recycled products, are treated with chemicals like boric acid to help increase fire resistance. Because it is made largely of recycled products, it is considered the greenest product available.
The combination of the formula and the installation method drastically limits the transfer of heat out of your home in the winter, and likewise the transfer into your home during the summer. Tiny air pockets fill the spaces between fibers which create a greater R-value. This is the measurement of a material’s resistance to heat transfer.
Our team will install the blown in insulation in areas between your building frame to fill up the empty gaps. This will slow down energy transfer and prevent air from leaking. Air leaks account for up to 20 percent of the loss of heat from a furnace, so preventing leaks will help you save on expensive energy. And as a bonus, your home will be much more comfortable all year round.
