Blown-in Insulation, the Best Choice for Home Insulation – Worcester MA

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Choosing the type of insulation you use at home can make a lot of difference in your expenses. Below shows how can blow-in insulation proves itself as the best choice for home insulation.

Tighter fit
We know that the tighter the fit, the better insulation works. Blown-in insulation makes a tighter fit than traditional insulation, squeezing around all the tight spots that other insulation materials miss. This way, tight corners and chinks are sealed.

Moisture prevention
Any tinge of moisture is bad for insulation. But there's nothing to worry about. Because of its tighter fit, blow-in insulation solves this problem, keeping moisture from seeping into it.

Noise reduction
Another benefit of a tighter fit is that it reduces noise between rooms which is great for varied reasons. This is perfect if you have playful children at home. You won't longer need to tell them to lower down their voices or the volume of their music because you won't hear their noise anyway.

Energy-efficient
Blown-in insulation does not fail in making your home warmer during winter and cooler during summer. This way, you do not anymore need to use your HVAC controlling system more often, thus lowering your e-bill.

Environmentally friendly
Since blown-in insulation is made out of recycled materials, then you serve the environment with two great things – you conserve energy and save natural resources. Plus, it is inert, non-toxic and fireproof. What more could you ask for?

Saves Money
With all those mentioned above, nothing beats blow-in insulation when it comes to saving money. It may not be cheap, but installing one can save you hundreds in the long run. It prevents you from spending for frequent replacements.

So if you're thinking to replace your old insulation, or building a new home in Worcester MA, do not forget to check out Custom Insulation. They can offer you great deals with benefits that are far too great to neglect.

Electric Fireplaces for Renters and Smaller Homes

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Electric Fireplaces are perfect for homes in Worcester because electric fireplaces are perfect for apartments, rental homes, smaller homes, or homes where the chimney has been closed off.  The Lennox electric fireplace installs almost anywhere.

A fireplace is not just for warmth, you want one for atmosphere and ambience in your living room too. Electric fireplaces aren’t what you expect, not the Lennox anyway. They have a realistic fire, and the Lennox electric fireplace gives out 5000 BTU’s.

Not to mention, they are so pretty that they serve as decoration pieces in your home even when they are not lit.  A Lennox 27-inch electric fireplace is for individuals who love the beauty and warmth of a true fire, but don't have the extra space for a fireplace installation. The MPE-27 electric fireplace is the answer to automatic home comfort with simple set up and easy installation capabilities.

If you live in an apartment in the city where there is no venting; if you are a renter or you’ll possibly be moving soon; or you simply don’t want the cost of a traditional fireplace, contact Custom Insulation, and consider an electric fireplace.

Blown In Insulation is Perfect if you do not Want to Take Down Drywall

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 10, 2011

There are a lot of people in and around Worcester, Massachusetts who are finally having their home repairs taken care of from this past winter’s ice dam damage. We have found that people who are having their interior ceilings and or walls pulled down and replaced are finding that their insulation is more than lacking. However, who wants to rip down interior ceilings and walls in undamaged rooms, just to replace old and ill fitting insulation? No one!

Blown in insulation is really about the only way to insulate existing, closed-up walls and ceilings. Tthe only other option is to start pulling off siding or rip out interior drywall.

Consider this if you are a DIY and are considering renting a machine. One reality of blown in insulation is that it is an imperfect process. It is not easy get cellulose fibers to pass through a two-inch wide hole and settle uniformly and completely all throughout a wall cavity. Especially in older homes, wall obstructions are everywhere in criss-crossing electrical wires, plaster "keys", blocking, etc.

Those who work with blown in insulation consider it almost an intuitive process. Most insulation technicians are experienced at finding blockages and wires, and know how to work around them. Contact Custom Insulation today to improve your home’s insulation and energy efficiency.

Copper Gutters Have an Exclusive Look

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, March 29, 2011

If it rains at your house, you need a gutter system. Gutters prevent water damage from the roof to the basement. One type of gutter that is gaining in popularity is copper gutters. At Custom Insulation we believe copper trumps the rest.

Copper gutters will never rust or rot away; whatever the weather this gutter will withstand it. Copper gutters add a distinctive style and flare to your house which is different than your standard gutters. Their style is noticeable and recognizable and they add a visual appeal that can only be accomplished with copper.

Because it is more valuable, copper adds a higher value to your home. Also, they are more easily maintained than aluminum or vinyl. Copper gutters will oxidize and turn green over time unless you treat them. There are ways to preserve the shine with sealants, but it is not necessary. And, on the other hand, many people like and prefer the greenish look, particularly in older homes found in Worcester and in other parts of Massachusetts. Copper has an exclusive look.

Copper gutters are an excellent addition and investment for the exterior of any home. The many benefits: sustainable building material, cosmetic enhancement and increased home value, and low maintenance; mean that you're going to pay a bit more for copper gutters. The positive side is that you will be getting a product that lasts longer and is easier to maintain. Call Custom Insulation for more information.
