You have multiple options when it comes to insulating your Worcester home and decreasing your energy bills. “Loose-fill” or “blown-in” insulation is increasingly choses as the insulation home improvement material of choice. And of the blown-in material options available to you, the trend setting material of choice is fiberglass.
Blown-in fiberglass insulation is perfect for filling in tight voids around wiring, pipes or any area with difficult framing. It delivers measurable results by way of lower utility bills. Compared to other (and admittedly less expensive) home insulation materials, blown-in insulation proves to be more airtight because it is smaller and able to get into tiny cracks and crevices of your attic where conditioned air leaks through. This material will fill in around beams, pipes and other awkward shaped objects and spaces. It is advantageous because it seals tightly making it a much better and more energy-efficient solution. It is also moisture resistant that prevents mold, odor and rot from creeping into your home. Fiberglass comes in both rolled batting and blown forms and settles to very little to no setting of losing R-value. Adding more, installing blown in insulation is a very quick and easy process. The material is simply blown out of a hose into space to create a seamless thermal protective blanket of insulation which is done by knowledgeable experts.
Blown-in insulation will reduce energy expenditure, lowering heating and cooling costs. It is something to highly consider. In doing so, it will assure your home will be protective from the outside environment and keep you and your family comfortable inside.

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 home 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!

Spring is the great time to make some home modifications to reduce energy costs. During fall and winter, a lot of homeowners were concerned about their electricity bills. Yet, even though the weather is gradually warming up, homeowners must think of ways to save on their electricity charges. Installing a good insulation will make your home more energy efficient, contributing a lot in reducing your energy consumption even if the weather outside is getting hotter.
Having a properly installed insulation will keep your home cooler without overworking your air conditioner. When attic and ceiling fans are combined with the right insulation and ventilation, you will save money in the summer and protect your roof and shingles in the winter. Good insulation will help prevent heat transfer into the house in the summer, while a cold attic in the winter reduces the likelihood of ice dams.
Increase the comfort of your home with the right insulation. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates a homeowner can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs by sealing and insulating around the home.
