Advantages of Blown-in Attic Insulation
Many homes, especially older homes, don’t have sufficient insulation against harsh Maine winters. This can cause many problems, from unnecessarily high heating costs to a cold, uncomfortable house. Fortunately, no matter what kind of home you own, there are ways to insulate and weather proof your home. One of the best ways is with blow-in attic insulation.
Heat rises—which means that heat will naturally rise toward the top of your house and, if there's insufficient insulation to stop it, it will escape into your attic and out of your home. This is why a properly insulated attic is such an important investment. Blown-in attic insulation is one of the quickest ways to see a return on your home improvement investment. A well-insulated home loses less heat, making it more comfortable and more reliable to heat.
Blow-in insulation is loose insulation which can be blown into any space needing insulation. Because the insulation is in such small pieces, it will settle into every open area, around any beams, vents, or others structures you might have in your attic. It can fill every space without leaving cracks or seams like some insulation.
Blow-in insulation can be an asset to your home, but only when properly installed and your home is well-ventilated. Whenever you choose blown-in attic insulation, make sure you find a reliable contractor with both insulation and ventilation experience.
