Sure, there are other options for insulation such as batts and blankets or structural insulated panels. But there’s a reason why blown-in insulation is increasingly becoming the popular choice for new home construction. As an insulation contractor, here are the top five reasons why blown-in insulation is the better choice for both you and your client.
The majority of work involved with blown-in insulation is setting up the barrier. Usually all that needs to be done for this is stapling the barrier to 2 x 4 planks of wood to help hold its shape and keep it supported. After that, all you need to do is cut a slit in the barrier, insert your Capitol Machine insulation blower and fill the space with as much insulation as you need.
While loose fill insulation might not be the cheapest insulation to start out with, it’s easy to show your customers how much they save in the long run. The wasted cost in lost air conditioning and heating easily overtakes the extra cost put into blown insulation.
It’s More Energy Efficient
Blown-in insulation is one of the most energy efficient types of insulation, which is always a desirable quality for the consumer. One of the greatest aspects of blown-in insulation is that it expands to fill up every inch of space, down to the tiniest crack. This can create a completely airtight seal if done correctly, meaning no leak of heating or air.
For structural support materials, moisture can be extremely detrimental. Moisture from rain, humidity or snow can cause cracks in concrete and deteriorate wood. If left for too long, dangerous mold can begin to grow. But with certain blown-in insulation, such as cellulose, moisture problems can be prevented. Cellulose helps distribute moisture evenly, allowing for a quicker dry time and less chance of moisture buildup in any one area.
Blown-in insulation’s airtight fit doesn’t just save money, it also saves the customer from headaches. Noise transfer is greatly reduced with this insulation, meaning every room can be virtually soundproof.
