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.

Essential Energy Efficiency Starts with Attic Insulation

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 10, 2011

When it comes to a home improvement that reduces energy use and improves the interior comfort of the home environment, many first look to energy efficient air conditioning and heating units as the answer. Energy Star HVAC units are indeed energy savers. They are also very costly investments and even those have limited effectiveness if other areas of the home where heat is gained or lost are not also addressed. The place to begin is with the attic.

Attic Insulation Attic insulation and ventilation is a critical part of energy conservation in a home. Significant heat enters the home through the attic in summer and heat is lost from the attic in the winter. Attic insulation systems work less hard with less energy needed. Making sure you have proper attic insulation is key not only in the winter time but also in the summer time to prevent heat loss and cold air exiting through cracks.

Adequate attic ventilation is equally important to prevent heat and moisture from being trapped in the attic. Keeping the air circulating properly in the attic also aids in preventing unwanted heat gain and loss and prevents damaging moisture from rotting wood and promoting the growth of mildew and molds. If you are looking to make a home improvement that pays for itself in reduced energy usage as well as one that protects your most valuable investment, then contact us today. We will be happy to assess your insulation needs!

Keep Warm and Secure This Winter with our Blown-In Insulation

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 26, 2011
Heat loss from your house might seem like a massive jolt to your domestic budget. Imagine having your heating system work overtime just because you are not warm enough. Yet, to keep yourself safe from repair costs, and keep the heat inside your house, you need to insulate it well through different methods. Well Custom Insulation has the solution and that is our blown-in cellulose insulation.

Cellulose insulation
is excellent for the environment. Like any other insulating system, cellulose insulation keeps the heat inside your house and doesn‘t let it escape. This type of insulation is more energy efficient than other methods because it uses insulating fibers, a composition of which is 80% post-consumer recycled newspapers. Similarly, the energy involved in making these fibers is comparatively lesser than traditional fiberglass or rock wools. This method is also energy efficient because it does not involve any harmful emissions. Therefore, it is environment friendly.

Because cellulose insulation is sprayed, it ensures that there is no sagging or drooping. Complete coverage will mean that heat and air are not flowing from room to room. This will also be a precaution from any potential fires in the house. Moreover, this method of insulation also seals incoming wires and plumbing holes. Covering these small holes ensures that you are living comfortably during extreme warm and cold weather. This method uses water to bind the insulation with the surface. The adhesion provided by water is durable and hard because it does not require any netting or mesh wire. The bond complex becomes hard as it dries, and therefore it is self-supporting.

Custom Insulation's cellulose method not only provides insulation for the heat it also offers the best sound insulation, thereby preventing noise pollution. This acoustic insulation will mean that you can relax in your house without exterior sounds bothering you.

In all, insulating your house by this method is the right option you should select! Contact us today to learn more about our insulation methods. Be sure to browse through our other services as well and start saving money today.
