Blown-In Insulation: a blanket for your home
You may already have batt insulation in your attic — the type that comes in rolls. The problem is, that doesn’t fill the nooks and crannies like loose insulation that’s blown in under pressure. Plus after so many years, old insulation can ‘settle’ flatter and lose much of its insulation ability. Time to refresh.
Adding a layer of Blown Insulation adds an additional fluffy layer of protection on the floor of your attic — the deeper and denser, the better. That way, the hot attic air in the summer doesn’t affect the rooms below that you’re trying to keep cool. And vice versa in the winter.
In addition to being used in attics, fiberglass or cellulose blown-in insulation is also used inside of walls and under floors. Since it’s projected under pressure, it’s a natural choice for hard-to-get-to areas of your home.
North Georgia Replacement Windows always recommends ‘air sealing’ your home or business prior to adding blown-in insulation. Air sealing is typically done with spray foam. In conjunction with blown-in fiberglass insulation, this makes a big impact on energy efficiency and the comfort you experience.
