Insulation is not just about keeping warm in winter. It’s about energy efficiency. It’s about saving money and saving the environment at the same time. It’s about keeping you and your loved ones safe, healthy, and comfortable.
Blown-in insulation is an efficient way to insulate your Fresno home. The team at Superior Insulation has spent many years insulating homes across the region. Over this time we’ve built a reputation for reliable blown-in insulation.
Blown-in insulation is made up of loose cellulose, fiberglass, mineral wood, or foam pieces. Each type of material comes with a slightly different R-value so it’s worth understanding these different materials. Normally blown-in insulation, because it is made of loose pieces, is composed of recycled materials.
That means it also has the characteristic of being environmentally friendly. At Superior Insulation our job is to make your home more efficient and lessen the impact it has on the environment. The fact that blown-in insulation is recycled makes it a lot more attractive!
Have you ever tried installing fiberglass batt insulation in an attic? If you so, you’ll agree that it’s a pain! You have to crawl up there through a narrow little door, navigate among the beams above and below, measure the spaces, cut the fiberglass sheet, and hope that it all fits into place. Plus, with so many steps involved in the process, there’s a higher likelihood of errors. Come winter, those errors will leave you out in the cold.
Studies show that blown-in insulation has a variable R-value. This is because it is loose and can be layered differently in different areas. The R-value for blown-in insulation is between R-3.2 to R-3.8 per inch. This is comparable to fiberglass batt insulation which has a consistent R-value of R-3.7. However, because it can be a hassle to get fiberglass into narrow spaces, there can be gaps that are not accounted for in the valuation.
In the end, it is a difference in installation method that really marks these two types of insulation.
Using a large blower, we shoot loose pieces of insulation into the designated space. Because it’s made of loose pieces of insulation, blown-in insulation is perfect for tight and awkward spaces that are hard to get to. This includes small attics and crawlspaces. By conforming to awkward surfaces, blown-in insulation has become a popular option for homeowners across Fresno and elsewhere.
It also includes walls. If you want to insulate the walls of your Fresno home with fiberglass roll-out, you’ll have to tear down the drywall. But with blown-in insulation, we can cut a small section and blow the insulation right in while causing very little other damage. It’s an easy solution for what would normally be a very complicated problem.
