Traditional vs Loose Fill: Which Insulation is Right for You?
More than likely, you have decisions to make as a homeowner each and every day. It is also pretty likely that you haven't given much thought to the insulation in your Corona home, at least until now.
The truth is that you could be in need of installation, enhancement or replacement of your insulating material. That means it is time to ask the big question about wall insulation - traditional or loose fill, also referred to as blown-in?
Understanding the Differences & the Benefits
The first thing that you would probably want to ask as reputable insulation company is what is the difference between these types of insulation, and what are the pros and cons?
- As the name implies, blown-in insulation is applied using a spray method. The foam-like material then is able to expand to better fill nooks and crannies that can be missed by traditional insulation. By traditional, we mean fiberglass material that is rolled into place, similar to the way sod is rolled into place to create a lawn.
- Loose fill can be cellulose, fiberglass or mineral wool. Deciding what type to use for your project is something that you and your contractor will have to discuss in order to determine which would be the best approach.
- Of course, all of it is intended to give you a more energy-efficient household, keep your family comfortable, help lower utility costs and make your home more Eco-friendly. That's a win-win in our book.
