Blown-In Insulation Service in Greater Lexington & Georgetown Areas

Blown-In Insulation in Lexington & Georgetown, Kentucky

Blown-in insulation is known by a variety of different names. Some call it "blow-in" or "blown" insulation. Regardless of which term you use, the bottom line remains the same. Blown-in insulation will improve the energy performance in an unfinished attic. It will do so in a cost-effective manner as well, whether you choose fiberglass or cellulose, or rockwool as your primary insulating material. 

Studies by the U.S. Department of Energy show that most attics are not adequately insulated. Throughout the northern states, the DOE recommends that homeowners insulate their attic to R-49 or higher. Yet the typical U.S. home is likely to have an attic insulation rating of less than R-20. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation.

For homeowners in the Georgetown and Lexington, KY area, our proven professionals at Weatherization Plus can boost your R-value with some blown-in insulation to get your home performing at a level you want and need to maximize your indoor comfort.

Blown-In Insulation is Cost-Effective & Energy-Efficient

In a poorly insulated attic without an air-sealed attic floor, heat runs rampant. Conditioned air leaks are prevalent as well.

This combination of too little insulation and too much air leakage is a big-time energy waster. Weatherization Plus has the experience, equipment and manpower to correct the problem for homeowners in the Lexington and Georgetown, Kentucky area. Our service crews stand ready to help at a moment's notice when you need our help with air-sealing improvements or an insulation upgrade. Most home performance experts recommend that both steps should be taken together.

Studies show that utility bills can be reduced by as much as 40 percent when attic air sealing is combined with an attic insulation upgrade. That represents significant savings in addition to a better indoor air environment, a win-win proposition for the homeowner.

For homeowners with an unfinished attic, a cost-effective and energy-efficient upgrade to your insulation situation can be achieved in a single day with blown-in insulation from Weatherization Plus.

Top Blown-In Insulation Options: Fiberglass, Cellulose & Rockwool

When it comes to blown-in insulation, homeowners have two basic options. Some insulation contractors install blown fiberglass insulation. Others install cellulose or rockwool. Weatherization Plus can install all three. Blown fiberglass and blown cellulose are both fluffy materials with similar R-values and identical installation methods. Blown rockwool, however, is denser, so it doesn’t have that same fluffy look. It is, however, installed in the same manner, with the use of an insulation blowing machine. It has a higher R-value per inch than the blown fiberglass or cellulose.

For all three types of insulation, a shredding and blowing machine located outside the house forces the blown insulation through a long, flexible hose that extends into the attic. A technician directs the flow of the material. 

If you already have older insulation that remains in good condition, fiberglass, cellulose or rockwool can be installed directly over your existing attic insulation to elevate your R-value in a strategic area. Although this is an inexpensive way to add insulation, simply adding it alone won’t fix the underlying causes of your home comfort and high utilities issues. Our consultants are happy to discuss your project, insulation needs, home comfort goals and budget with you to provide you with options on upgrading your insulation system.
