Our team at Polk County Insulation knows your home is important to you, and we want to help you do what’s best for it. If you are thinking about adding new insulation, it’s important to consider your options and choose the right type for your needs. In this article, our team will focus specifically on blow-in insulation and provide an overview of its pros and cons to help you decide if it’s right for you.
Pros of Blow-In Insulation:
- Superior Coverage – One benefit of blow-in insulation is that it offers better coverage than batt-type insulation. Because blow-in insulation is loose, it can make its way into any nook or cranny, and easily fit in between wall studs.
- Ease of Layering – Another advantage of blow-in insulation is that it can be used in layers with other materials to create an even more effective barrier against heat transfer.
Cons of Blow-In Insulation:
- Messy Installation – One drawback of blow-in insulation is that the installation process can be messy—after all, loose materials like this can easily be blown into places where they don’t belong. If any stray insulation gets loose during your installation process, our team will make sure to clean it up for you.
- Weight – Another possible drawback of this type of insulation is that it can be heavy, and because of this, it’s not ideal for every application. In some cases, the extra weight of blow-in insulation can cause your ceilings to sag, so before we finalize your choice of material, our team will always run the calculations to make sure this type of insulation is appropriate for your needs.
