Make your property comfortable and efficient with the addition of blown insulation.
Did you know that the majority of properties built are often done so with woefully inadequate insulation? Code laws only require the minimal amount of insulation, which means that builders will often only install the minimal amount and spend money on upgrades in other areas of the property that a buyer can actually see. If you are looking to beef up the insulation in your Indianapolis, Indiana property, then we here at 31-W Insulation want to help you.
Made from shreds of insulation, blown insulation is designed to be moved with compressed air into a desired space. This type of insulation is traditionally made from two different types of insulation materials- fiberglass and cellulose. No matter which material you choose, you are going to feel a difference in the comfort level of your property almost immediately with blown insulation.
Why is Blown Insulation a Good Idea for Older Homes?
Of all the advantages that blown insulation has to offer for today’s newest homes in the Indianapolis, Indiana area, there are others that make it especially suited for older homes. At 31-W Insulation, we haven’t seen a home in our nearly 50 years in business that we haven’t been able to provide the benefits of added or replacement insulation. We especially love helping those with historic homes experience the comfort level that is possible with blown insulation.
Older homes that were constructed with plaster lathe walls can be quite challenging to deal with. It is practically impossible to use a product other than blown insulation because you don’t want to risk damaging the walls. All we need to be able to insulate this type of wall is a small access hole, which can be easily patched afterward. You are able to maintain the charm of your historic home while bringing it up to the comfort level and energy efficiency that you desire. This process can also add value to the home, as it doesn’t interfere with the originality of it, but makes it livable by today’s standards.
Your home doesn’t have to be historic to enjoy the benefits of blown insulation. Any home with walls that you do not want to have to replace is a good candidate. We are happy to assess your older home to let you know which type of insulation would be best to meet the objectives you have in mind and answer any questions that you might have.
Blown insulation is a great form of insulation to add on to any existing insulation you might already have. Not only is it relatively inexpensive, but it is great for areas that are often woefully under-insulated such as the attic or crawlspace of your property. These tight spots are perfect for blown insulation since you don’t need a lot of headspace or room for blown insulation installation, just experienced installers like ours and an opening to access the space.
If you are looking to improve the comfort level on your property, pay less for utilities, and make your home more energy-efficient, then please contact us today about the possibility of installing blown insulation in your Indianapolis home.
