Make Your Home More Energy-efficient with Blown In Insulation
Depending on where you live in the US, your air conditioning and heating systems could account for up to 60% of your monthly utility bills. It takes a considerable amount of energy to cool or heat an entire home. Consequently, even more, energy will be used if heat can escape from your home in winter and outside heat can enter your home during those hot and humid Miami summers. As a result, your air conditioner could be working overtime if your attic isn’t properly insulated.
What is Blown In Insulation?
Blown in insulation is an excellent way to improve your air conditioning and heating system’s performance. There are 3 types of this insulation: cellulose, fiberglass, and polyurethane. Compared to the limitation of blanket or mat insulation, blown in insulation is the ideal alternative for reducing your energy usage. Hoses that are attached to mechanical blowers are used to spray the insulation into your home’s attic and walls. This type of insulation could reduce your electricity costs by up to 25%. Plus, you may be entitled to a tax credit or exemption in certain areas.
What are the primary Benefits of Blown In Insulation?
Homeowners love the versatility that blown in insulation provides. For example, it’s normally made from “green” materials and is an ideal way to improve the R-value or resistance to the flow of heat in a home’s attic and wall stud cavities. Furthermore, when you hire a professional blown in insulation contractor, it is the quickest and most affordable way to save on your monthly utility bills. By installing the proper amount of insulation, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:
- Decreased cooling costs – insulation works during the summer, not just in winter. During summertime, it prevents heat from getting into your home from the attic. This can significantly lower your monthly utility bills by reducing the strain on you’re A/C.
- System longevity – because your air conditioning and heating systems won’t need to work as hard as what they were before installing blown in insulation, your air conditioner or furnace may enjoy a longer lifespan.
On a precautionary note, installing insulation should not be viewed as a DIY project. First of all, the equipment needed for such a project is costly, even if you rent it. Second, the equipment can be difficult to use. Finally, installing insulation improperly isn’t going to help decrease your utility costs.
