Blown Insulation

The Truth About Insulation

Insulation may not be a visible feature of your home or business, but the work it quietly performs behind the scenes is incredibly important. The truth is that a poorly insulated home exposes you and your family (or your employees) to the effects of the elements. Deficient insulation can rapidly increase your energy bills, and insulation that isn’t properly installed is likely not to perform as intended, either. Most of us don’t notice insulation issues until they’re already causing problems. Fortunately, the experienced team at Skywalker Windows & Siding is happy to provide a free inspection and assessment, and then partner with you to deliver the best possible insulation solution.

Advantages of Blown-In Insulation
Blown-in insulation remains a preferred insulation solution for many reasons. For one thing, it tends to have a higher R-value than rolled batting or foam boards. Thanks to the small size of the particles, blown insulation is also able to reach and fill more cracks and crevices, thus preventing more air leakage. Blown insulation also helps with humidity control and external noise reduction. Basic categories of blown insulation material include fiberglass, mineral wool, and cellulose. If you’re conscientious about reducing your ecological footprint, blown-in cellulose insulation is a good choice as it’s made from recycled newspaper and cardboard that’s been chemically treated. Regardless of the material option you opt for, blown insulation is designed to be both moisture-resistant and fire-resistant.

Insulation Material Options

There are many types of insulation available on the market today, but only a certified contractor can suggest the best kind of insulation for your particular building situation. From our experience, blown-in (loose-fill) insulation is one of the first types you should consider for most applications, but there are other options as well:

  • Loose-fill / blown-in
    It works exactly how it sounds. Blown-in insulation is blown into wall cavities and other designated spaces using specialized equipment. Blowing insulation is a favored method because the material is able to get to areas which can otherwise be very hard to reach. It’s the most convenient way to insulate an existing wall, and blown insulation can also be used for unfinished attic floors and walls. Leave this highly technical job to the certified blown-in insulation providers at Skywalker Windows & Siding!
  • Batts and rolls / blanket
    Bats and rolls insulation work well in spaces without obstacles. Batts and rolls insulation can be used for unfinished walls, ceilings, and floors. It resembles the look of a blanket, which is why it’s commonly known as blanket insulation. It’s rolled out to fit between joists, studs, and beams. Our experience in working with this material has made us a master of batts and rolls insulation.
  • Foam or rigid board
    Rigid board insulation is commonly used in many new construction builds or when adding on to your existing space. It is mostly used by builders for insulating unfinished roofs and/or unvented walls, and it’s also a common choice for DIY insulation projects. Made of dense foam material, rigid board is very moisture resistant, fairly easy to work with, and actually has a higher R-value per inch of thickness than common fiberglass batt insulation.
  • Reflective
    Reflective insulation, also known as foil insulation, is typically used in unventilated cavity walls and in pitched roofs. Reflective insulation can be comprised of various components including foil-faced kraft paper, plastic film, polyethylene bubbles, or cardboard. It can be used as a radiant barrier, moisture barrier, or as facing for fiberglass and other types of insulation. Reflective insulation helps your home reflect heat rather than absorb it, so it’s not uncommon to find in the attic or between studs, joists, and beams.

Blown Insulation Cost

There’s no simple answer to the question, “What will blown insulation cost me?” The cost of installing blown insulation really depends on several things, including the insulation material you choose, along with the size and design of your structure.
