Westfield Blown Insulation Services
Would you be surprised to learn that your home probably doesn’t have enough insulation to keep out the heat and cold the way it’s supposed to? Countless homeowners take for granted that they have the right amount of insulation to provide the R-values they need to maintain comfort in their homes. Unfortunately, quite a few of them are mistaken. Recent reports indicate that an estimated 90 percent of homes in America have inadequate insulation. This may not sound like a major issue, but it can be a costly problem. This is especially true during our hot, humid summers and uncomfortably cold winters in Westfield and the surrounding areas.

Taking a Closer Look at Blown-In Insulation
Blown-in insulation offers the same benefits as traditional batt insulation. Batt insulation is the type many homes are equipped with. It’s purchased in rolls or sheets with the insulative materials attached to some type of backing. During installation, it’s cut into strips and fitted into the available spaces. In many cases, it has to be trimmed or patched together to fit properly. Once the insulation is in place, it protects your home against heat transfer. That means it keeps outdoor heat from coming inside during the summer and prevents heat in your home from seeping outside during the winter.
Having said that, blown-in insulation goes above and beyond to bring you even more advantages. Our blown insulation experts use loose-fill fiberglass, which has impressive insulative qualities, is lightweight, and isn’t flammable as some materials can be. It’s also a long-lasting material that doesn’t degrade over time as some insulation materials do. At the same time, blown-in fiberglass insulation fills in all the gaps left behind by batt insulation. As such, it provides even more protection than its conventional counterpart.
Is Blown-In Insulation Right for My Home?
There’s a good chance the answer to this question is yes. Blown-in fiberglass insulation is the perfect solution in a wide range of scenarios. It can be used in new homes as well as older ones. You can use it as an initial, standalone protective barrier against heat transfer or to replace damaged insulation. You can also use it to supplement your home’s existing insulation. Because of its composition and installation process, it can even be applied in spaces where batt insulation just wouldn’t work.
On top of that, it’s a cost-effective alternative to other types of insulation. Though it may be less expensive, it doesn’t fall short where insulative properties are concerned. It’ll prevent heat transfer and help reduce your heating and cooling bills just as much as batt insulation if not more so. Of course, its effectiveness and longevity depend on having it installed by blown insulation experts like us. To install it properly and safely, you have to have the right type of training and equipment. We happen to have just that.
Are There Any Downsides to Blow-In Insulation?
Blown-in insulation does have a couple of downsides. Many people feel the primary disadvantage of this type of insulation is the fact that it has to be installed professionally. It’s not something that can be done as a weekend do-it-yourself project. If it’s not applied by trained and experienced professionals, it can make for an ineffective and potentially dangerous mess that leaves shards of spun glass in your carpet and furniture. Additionally, if it gets wet, it can become a breeding ground for mold and mildew. In the event your blown-in insulation is inadvertently exposed to moisture, don’t hesitate to call us to resolve the problem.
