Blown insulation is ideal for retrofitting your home or business with improved insulation, with the potential to save you serious money on your utility bills each month.
When you think of insulation, it’s likely that you think of batt insulation. This type of insulation comes in big rolls and has been used in construction since the 1930s. While there are many great applications for this type of insulation, it is not very good for retrofitting your existing home or business when you want to improve your insulation levels. For this type of insulation need, blown insulation is generally our recommendation.
Here at 31-W Insulation, we work with all types of insulation, including two common types of blown insulation:
- Fiberglass blown insulation: This type has an R-value of 2 per inch. It is a lower-cost alternative and is great if you need insulation in a small area, like maybe a small addition to your home. It has a long lifespan of 30 to 50 years.
- Cellulose blown insulation: This type has an R-value of 3.5 per inch and is made from chemically treated recycled newspaper (making it fire and pest-resistant). Because it is made from recycled paper, it is a great ecofriendly option and has a lifespan of 20 to 30 years.
