Depending on the project, and specific to client need, the team at EcoStar Insulation will suggest the best possible approach for insulating a space. One option is blown in insulation (sometimes referred to as “blown insulation”). It’s an installation that provides effective thermal insulation, satisfactory R-Values, and a cost-effective price tag. With a professional install, along with proper air sealing, blown-in insulation can provide a homeowner with reliable, long-term benefits.
Blown-in insulation is commonly available in either a cellulose composition, or fiberglass. Quite an effective option in the attic and/or roof cavity, both products provide comparable R-Value where installed. While the cellulose product is known to provide somewhat higher R-Values, it also tends to settle after time. Clearly, each of the product compositions come with attributes – but importantly, it’s the professional installation that will assure optimal long-term performance.
Blown in insulation is fabricated to be fire resistant. Cellulose is treated to stop the spread of fire, while fiberglass is by nature hard to ignite. Fire resistance is a necessary feature in attic. Because of this, blownin insulation is often recommended as a “top up” to existing insulation. As long as the installation space is dry and uncontaminated, the “top up” approach can do the job. In fact, it’s a very cost effective installation for the attic, enhancing R-Values, and increasing the lifespan.
Once installed, blownin insulation can noticeably improve energy efficiency. In a vast space like the attic, product coverage is comprehensive, and most cracks and crevices are effectively filled.
With a comprehensive install, blown in insulation can provide a level of sound dampening. This may be beneficial to homeowners, when adjacent areas to the attic are being used as living space.
With the right professional equipment, installing blown in insulation is quick, particularly when it’s compared with other installs. This makes for project savings, and a cost-effective installation.
Expertly installed, blown in insulation does a satisfactory job covering the attic space. Coverage is comprehensive: support crossbeams, plumbing pipes, electrical wiring, and all of the ductwork.
Effectively insulating the attic with blown in insulation will prevent heated air and cooled air from escaping. This will reduce energy consumption, and will result in reduced utility costs.
Simply put, blownin insulation provides enhanced energy efficiency throughout. It means that heating and cooling cycles will be better balanced, and the HVAC system will better perform.
Overall, blown-in insulation makes for a good return-on-investment. It’s a cost-effective application that delivers satisfactory insulation performance. But importantly, these are products that need expertise when installing. As such, a professional approach is highly recommended. At EcoStar, insulation experts ensure peak product performance, with excellent results for years and years. EcoStar does the work right – according to the building code – on time and on budget. For some, a DIY approach may be cost saving, but with professional insulation contractors the results are preferable.
I have a cottage in Muskoka, and we rent it throughout the year. We have noticed during the winter that our clients have been complaining about the heat not being good enough. After consulting it with Ecostar Insulation contractors, we decided to go with them, and I have no regrets. Out cottage has never been warmer in the winter. Great Price and Professional Work.
Every winter for the past 4 years since I moved into this house, it has been cold inside my house. I tried getting different heaters, changing the ventilation, but the problem was actually in the insulation. The house is very old, and it cost me a lot of money during the winter time. BUT not anymore!! thanks to EcoStar Insulation. I have enjoyed last winter more than anything. Great job guys and keep it up. Tom.
We had a big project on our way, and our biggest issue was who will handle the insulation part. After contacting a few companies, EcoStar Insulation has proven to us that they are very professional, and they definitely stood to their word and got this done in time and without any issues. THANKS AGAIN!!!
We just bought a new unit and as we were renovating it, we noticed there wasn’t any insulation inside. Luckily, everything was stripped and ready for insulation, so we contacted Ecostar and their professional contractors have done a phenomenal job.
