The Benefits of Fiberglass Blown-In InsulationSeptember 18, 2014
When it comes to insulation types, contractors have a variety of options. The most popular of these options is fiberglass. In fact, it controls 74.5 percent of the insulation market in its loose-fill and batt forms, according to the Home Innovations Annual Build Practices Survey (ABPS). While fiberglass insulation is offered in batt form, we are big fans of blown-in insulation at Capitol Machine. It is the better choice because of the following noteworthy benefits.
Quick to Install
Loose-fill insulation takes a fraction of the time than other insulation types take to install. Our Capitol Machine Model 125 can blow up to 100 bags of fiberglass per hour! For blown-in insulation, all you need to do to install is secure the barrier or blanket, cut a slit in it, and insert however much insulation you desire. It’s that easy.
Because the insulation is blown in, this form of fiberglass expands to fill every crack and crevice in the space. With proper installation, your customers’ homes will be virtually airtight, preventing energy loss.
Loose-fill fiberglass insulation is made from virgin fiberglass, meaning that there are no chemicals or additives to irritate a person’s allergies. Make sure to mention this benefit to homeowners. This quality makes it ideal for allergy sufferers.
One of the best ways to contain sound in the attic and between the walls is to install blown-in insulation. This loose-fill type is great at keeping noise under control, which is perfect for families that play music, or like to watch television.
With the amount homeowners save on energy costs, the return on investment for fiberglass blown-in insulation is high. It pays for itself in the first few years. Your customers will get exactly what they pay for—fiberglass insulation is not only effective, but also long-lasting.
