Blown insulation is another method that contractors and homeowners are able to increase the level of insulation in one’s walls or attic in Dutchess County. Besides blown another way that homeowners increase their insulation levels is by placing fiberglass backs or spray foaming. When referring to blown insulation we typically have in mind cellulose or fiberglass insulation. Both of them very in many different ways but serve the same purpose and applied insane way.

For an individual homeowner applying insulation in the blown form might be a little bit difficult. For this procedure you need a hopper and a big shipments of pallets that will have many bags of insulation on them. This machinery is very expensive and not many hardware stores rent them out for a few days use. For that reason most of the homeowners choose fiberglass bats when trying to increase their insulation level. In most cases fiberglass bats do not do an appropriate job of insulating properly and uniformly on whatever area applied.
Blown insulation is one of the fastest-growing types of insulation application that is used in Dutchess County. For our company we choose to use cellulose insulation for a few different reasons. Our mission is to redefine green energy while at the same time trying to limit our environmental footprint in terms of using harmful materials. Cellulose insulation is recycled newspaper and phone books that were turned into insulation that we can now use inside your home. Another benefit of using this type of insulation is that it is fire resistant due to the reason that it was mixed with a mineral called boron.
During the application process what will typically happen is that we first air seal the home to make sure that the air that you paid to heat and cool does not leak into your attic. After that our next step is to make sure that your attic is properly vented with the help of soffit vents or ridge vents. The next step is making sure that we build proper retaining walls around the hatch and storage spaces that are built in so that people still have the additional room for some of the seasonal things. Once the steps are complete we can now start blowing our cellulose insulation into your attic. We focus on getting uniform cover over the entire attic and making sure that the minimum heat resistance value that would give you is R-60.
