Blown Insulation for Attics

If your power bills are unusually high, or you’ve noticed your home getting drafty in spots, then air leakage in your walls and attic may be to blame. In that case, blown insulation is a very cost-effective solution to the problem.

At Insta-Insulation, we use Climatizer Plus cellulose blown insulation in our installations. It’s made of 100% recycled shredded newsprint that has been specially treated to make it anti-fungal and flame retardant. In addition, Climatizer Plus cellulose is “fiberized”, meaning that the individual cellulose wood fibers have been separated, allowing for greater coverage and superior performance.

Benefits of Climatizer Plus blown insulation

Our Climatizer Plus blown insulation has a higher R-value, tighter fit, and better fire barrier characteristics than traditional fiberglass insulation. It doesn’t store heat like glass fiber, and maintains its value longer – while also increasing the value of your home.

The benefits of Climatizer Plus don’t stop there, however. It’s also terrific at combating mold, as cellulose deals with moisture more effectively than fiberglass. In addition, cellulose blown in insulation is better than the environment than its fiberglass alternative, and it also helps to reduce allergies. The tight fit of Climatizer Plus blown insulation also provides for improved noise reduction in your home.

How does installing blown insulation help me to reduce my energy bills?
