Why Blown-In Insulation is Great for Attic Insulation
Signs of changes in a home's energy efficiency can present in a number of ways, slowly but all at once. When homeowners begin to notice drafts or sudden spikes in utility bills, the best place to start is with your attic insulation. The attic is a key player in a property's indoor climate regulation, and when the insulation stops performing, its effects can be felt throughout the property. Blown-in insulation is a highly effective insulation upgrade available to homeowners and property owners throughout the GTA.

Read on to learn why it's a top choice for insulation contractors and property owners alike when it comes to the attic.
Improved Energy Efficiency
The primary purpose of any attic insulation is to maintain good energy efficiency. This will save homeowners on utility costs and reduce their ecological footprint. High-quality and effective blown-in insulation in the attic will prevent heat from escaping the winter and retain cool air in the summer, reducing the dependency on your heating and cooling systems for comfortable indoor temperatures, which can translate to significant energy and maintenance savings over time.
Easy Blown-In Installation
One significant benefit of loose-fill insulation is that it can be easily installed by being blown into the attic cavity using specially designed machines. When the installation is executed by trained insulation contractors like the team at EcoSar Insulation, the process can be completed in less than a day, minimizing the disruption to your daily routine and helping you capture the benefits of improved energy efficiency sooner rather than later.
Improved Indoor Comfort
A well-insulated attic helps regulate indoor temperatures, so as you travel from room to room, you'll experience a more consistent climate, ensuring better indoor comfort. Regardless of the season or the weather outside, when you set your thermostat, you can be confident that your home will be able to maintain that temperature throughout the property without overworking your air conditioning unit or furnace. By working with the EcoStar Insulation team, you can determine just how much insulation you need to maximize indoor comfort for the size and layout of your home.
Prevent Mold Infestations
Attics are especially prone to mold and pest infestations because of the abundance of wood and vulnerability to water leaks. When mold infested attic insulation, it can render the material ineffective, leaving occupants of the property exposed to mold in the air. Blown-in cellulose insulation is treated with borate, which helps combat the onset of mold for safer and cleaner indoor air, while also prolonging the lifespan of your attic insulation.
Increased Resale Value
Finally, blown-in insulation can increase the resale value of your home. When potential buyers see that your home is insulated with high-quality insulation, they'll be more likely to view it as a well-maintained property. This can help you sell your home faster and at a higher price point.
