Plainfield Blown insulation Services
Based on the latest reports from the construction sector, the majority of homes in America don’t have enough insulation to protect them against heat transfer. Quite a few homeowners may be surprised by that fact. After all, many people simply trust that their homes have ample insulation in all the right places to keep the elements outside and their heating and air conditioning inside. If the statistics are any indication, though, that trust is sorely misplaced. If you’re concerned you may be part of the majority, in this case, Mister Quik Home Services can help change that.

A Brief Rundown of Blown-In Insulation
If you’re not quite sure how blown-in insulation works, you’re not alone. Most people are familiar with traditional batt insulation. That’s the insulation that comes in rolls or sheets with backing on them to hold the insulative materials, such as fiberglass or rock wool. It’s neat and convenient and can be cut to fit the allotted spaces in your home. Though several types of insulation are available, fiberglass is the most common. It has proven itself to be an effective alternative. It’s also available in a range of R-values, so it can accommodate an array of insulation needs.
Here at Mister Quik, we use loose-fill fiberglass as part of our blown-in insulation services. Our blown insulation experts do not doubt that fiberglass is the most affordable and effective option on the market. It lasts a long time, is fire resistant, and costs less per inch than blown-in cellulose. On top of all that, it provides plenty of protection against heat transfer and helps bridge the gaps left behind by the insulation that may already be in your home.
Do I Need More Insulation in My Home?
Based on those recent reports, the answer here is probably yes. Building codes and insulation requirements are constantly changing. They’ve even been modified in our area over the years. If your home was built several years ago, it probably doesn’t have enough insulation by today’s standards. At the same time, insulation tends to gradually deteriorate. Though the typical lifespan varies, it generally loses its R-value after 15 years or so. If you live in an older home, it may be time to update the insulation. Certain warning signs can tell you if your insulation is falling short as well.
- Uncomfortable Indoor Temperatures. If you’ve noticed the temperatures in your home never seem to be as comfortable as you’d like, the insulation may be to blame. Insulation is supposed to keep outdoor temperatures outside while holding in your heat and air conditioning. If your insulation has deteriorated, or you don’t have quite enough, it won’t do its job properly.
- Surging Utility Bills. In homes without adequate insulation, the heating and air conditioning systems have to work harder to regulate indoor temperatures. That means they use more energy than they would otherwise. If your heating and cooling bills are soaring out of control, it may be a warning sign that you need to update your home’s insulation.
- Noise Pollution. Perhaps you’ve noticed that the roar of traffic and other noises from outside seem to be more audible than they once were. On the other hand, that noise pollution may simply be much louder than you’d like. In either case, adding more insulation to your home could help solve the problem.
