Blown-in insulation, also referred to as “blown” insulation, is a great solution for unfinished attics and spaces that are generally difficult to reach. While the U.S. Department of Energy recommends that attic spaces be insulated to R-49 or higher, they estimate that most attics actually have an R-20 or lower insulation rate. Blown-in insulation helps to evenly insulate the gaps where thermal energy can be lost.
Here are some other great benefits:

Air leaks and gaps in thermal coverage in key spaces like your attic can account for a decent percentage of wasted household energy. Insulation specialists recommend sealing these leak points and ensuring that your home has full-coverage insulation in these areas. By taking these measures, it’s estimated that you can decrease heating and cooling costs by as much as 40%! Who wouldn’t want to take advantage of that?
Blown-in insulation is one of the most cost-effective methods of insulating any space. Plus, the installation is a breeze compared to other methods, such as fiberglass batting. You could have your space fully insulated and be reaping the benefits in half the time!
The two most common materials used by insulation installers are fiberglass blown insulation and blown cellulose. Both materials have a similar R-value and a fluffy consistency, which is great for insulating small, difficult-to-reach places.
The loose fibers are shredded and blown through a machine outside of the home and fed through a long tube. Our insulation installation specialist will be inside the space that you are looking to insulate, carefully directing the flow of materials for an even distribution.

Fiberglass insulation is among the most durable and can last up to 100 years, while blown-in insulation will last 20 to 30 years. Made from recycled materials and given its low moisture resistance, let a technician check it every 15 years for damage or degradation.
Contractors measure R-values in inches based on the thickness of the insulation. It determines how much insulation can resist the flow of heat. With higher R-values, expect better insulation, but R-values can vary depending on your geographic region. For example, the best R-value for insulation in Georgia is R-50, while R-49 is the ENERGY STAR recommendation, and utility companies start paying the incentive when upgrading your insulation to R-49 or higher.
Signs it’s time to check your insulation include if you feel more drafts or your energy bill increases. Other signs include rooms with uneven temperatures, cold floors, or pipes that keep freezing.
