Blown-in insulation is a common way to insulate attics and wall cavities using loose particles. Originally created in the 1920’s, blown-in insulation is now made from either fiberglass, cellulose, or mineral wool. This highly-effective method of attic insulation is extremely popular, thanks to the many benefits it provides to homeowners.
Increased Energy Efficiency
When compared to other types of attic insulation, blown-in insulation is much more airtight. Because the particles are small, they are ideal for filling in any sized or shaped space. They have no trouble fitting around oddly shaped corners, small crevices, around beams, and more.
Because these small particles can be blown into corners and other small places, it creates a close fit that provides increased energy efficiency over insulation batts. Over time, this can lead to tremendous savings on the costs associated with heating and cooling the home. As an added bonus, blown-in insulation is frequently made from recycled products, providing a greener type of Las Vegas attic insulation.
An Extra Layer of Security
The tight fit of blown-in insulation serves as an additional barrier to keep your house safe and comfortable. Blown-in insulation makes a great sound barrier, reducing the spread of noise from room to room within the house.
It also serves as a way to moisture-proof your attic. Moisture in the attic can lead to a wide range of problems, including mold, bad smells, rot, and cracks. Overtime, these issues can make you sick and cause significant damage to your home. Blown-in insulation acts as a moisture barrier for your attic, protecting your home against these costly dangers.
Blown-in insulation can also help to reduce the risk of fires in your house. Fires require oxygen in order to burn and grow. Because the tight fit reduces the flow of air, blown-in insulation is fire resistance and can reduce the risk of fires spreading throughout the house.
Quick to Install
Ensuring that the blown-in insulation is evenly distributed is extremely important. Insulation is thinner in some areas than others will be less effective, allowing more heat to escape than an even layer of insulation would. Professional Las Vegas attic insulation installers use specialized equipment to evenly distribute the particles throughout the attic. Blown-in insulation only takes a few hours to install, while offering benefits to last for many years.
