According to the U.S. Department of Energy, few attics are adequately insulated. Lack of sufficient insulation allows a lot of warm or cool air from your home to escape through your attic. Poor attic insulation may not seem like a big deal, but when heated or cooled air escapes from your home, your HVAC system is forced to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the rest of your living areas. While there are several options when it comes to insulation, blown insulation is one of the most popular. At Lion Home Service, we offer blown insulation in Fort Collins and the surrounding areas throughout northern Colorado.
Also known as “blow-in insulation,” blown insulation is a cost-effective means of insulating virtually any attic. It prevents air leaks and can drastically lower your heating and cooling bills. Made from fiberglass or cellulose, blown insulation is installed using a shredding and blowing machine located outside your home. This machine forces insulation through a flexible hose inside your attic. A service expert uses the hose to direct the flow.
Blown insulation can be installed by itself or over existing attic insulation, as long as the older insulation is still in good condition. It requires no maintenance and will last for as long as you own your home. It can also make a significant difference on your energy bills.
In the warmer months, the sun heats your attic and forces your AC unit to work harder. Conversely, in the colder months, warm air from your heater escapes out of your attic, resulting in expensive heating bills. For year-long cost savings, blown attic insulation from Lion Home Service is the smart way to go.
