These two materials use the same method for installation: A blowing machine is kept outside the house, and the insulation is blown through a flexible hose by a skilled technician, who can direct the insulation to exactly where it’s needed. Installation is relatively fast.
Another benefit of blown-in insulation is that it can be blown into concealed areas, such as wall cavities. Instead of ripping out walls to insulate, then having to re-build the walls, with blown insulation you simply make a small hole in the wall and blow the insulation in. The hole can be patched very easily, and with a lot less expense than building new walls.
When you upgrade both your air sealing and insulation, you could reduce your heating and cooling costs by up to 40 percent, making the one-time investment highly lucrative in the long run. Unfinished attics and crawl spaces can be air sealed and properly insulated for an affordable price and save you thousands of dollars over the years on heating and cooling costs.
When the time comes to install insulation in any type of building the question of electrical wires come up. Insulation can safely be laid or blown in over electrical wires. Common electrical wires are electrically insulated and are typically required to be installed before insulation is installed. When insulating around existing wiring, it is important that insulation fills as much space as possible.
Having proper insulation can help increase your comfort, save energy, and improve your home’s safety and durability. But the first step is to schedule an energy inspection to find out exactly what home improvement work is recommended for your home in all DFW.
