Beech Grove Blown Insulation Services
Does your home have enough insulation? In all honesty, that’s not a question people tend to give much thought to. Insulation was installed when your home was built. No doubt, the house had to have been inspected at least once before it was deemed safe and livable. At that point, it must’ve had enough insulation to pass the inspection, right? You haven’t done away with the insulation at any point. Why would you? With all that being the case, surely it must still have enough insulation.
That’s a perfectly logical line of reasoning. It’s the same train of thought most people would follow if they were faced with the same question. Having said that, would it surprise you to find out that your home probably doesn’t have enough insulation today even though it may have at some point in the past? Insulation tends to lose its R-value over time, meaning its effectiveness wanes. If the insulation in your home is exposed to moisture or other hazards, it can deteriorate even more quickly than it would under normal circumstances. On top of that, building codes change from time to time, so even relatively new insulation may not be sufficient by the latest standards.

What Is Blown-In Insulation, Exactly?
As you might imagine based on the name, blown-in insulation is blown into your attic. As opposed to traditional batt insulation, which comes in strips with paper or plastic backings, blown-in insulation is made of loose materials. It’s purchased in packages and loaded into special insulation blowing equipment before installation.
From there, the machinery blows the insulation into place through tubes or hoses. As the material enters the spaces being treated, it settles gently into place and fills all the gaps and empty spaces along the way. This process must be carried out by blown insulation experts with the tools, training, and experience to install it safely and properly. Here at Mister Quik, our technicians are equipped with all those elements, and we take extra care when installing your blown-in insulation to make sure you’re able to take full advantage of all its benefits.
What Type of Blown-In Insulation Is Best?
Opinions may vary on this point, but we’ve found that loose-fill fiberglass blown-in insulation is the best for several reasons. It’s more cost-effective than some other types of insulation, and it gives you plenty of insulative value per square inch. Since it’s made of finely spun glass, it’s fire-resistant, so it can help keep your home safer. It’s a lightweight material that can easily settle into all the nooks and crannies in your home, even those batt insulation doesn’t cover.
Additionally, loose-fill fiberglass is extremely versatile. You can use it in areas where batt insulation wouldn’t work well, like irregular spaces between floor joists and in all those previously mentioned gaps that conventional rolls of insulation often leave behind. It’s also great for home additions, remodels, and adding extra insulation to older homes. In finished homes, you’d have to tear out the walls, flooring, and other components to add more batt insulation. If you use blown-in insulation, though, all you have to do is create small holes for installation and fill them in when the job is done.
