As homeowners in the Tulsa area, when considering upgrading your home you should consider blown-in insulation for your hot attic spaces. This energy saving home improvement will reduce your utility bills while increasing the overall comfort level within your home.
Minimize Heat Transfer From Your Attic To Your Living Space
Because your attic is directly below the roof of your home and exposed to the beating sun, this tends to be the hottest location within your home.
By creating an effective barrier with blown-in insulation, you will be able to significantly reduce the amount of heat entering your living space from your hot attic.
Advantages of Blown-In Insulation Over Other Types
Among the three most common types of insulation available today, blown-in insulation provides a number of advantages when compared to traditional rolled batts or sprayed foam insulation. The main pros and cons of each type include:
- Batt or roll insulation is widely available in a range of materials including fiberglass and cotton. Although they are relatively inexpensive and and can be earth-friendly when manufactured from recycled and/or natural materials, these generally provide the poorest insulating abilities for your Tulsa home due to gaps and spaces that inevitably remain after installation within your attic.
- Blown-in insulation is also available in a range of materials, but provides far superior insulation due to its ability to fill every small gap and space within your attic. Its reasonable costs and quick installation when completed by a professional makes blown-in attic insulation the method of choice for an increasing number of homeowners.
- Sprayed foam insulation provides excellent insulation and can be used directly below the roofline of your home to extend the conditioned space of your home to include your entire attic. Drawbacks of this insulation method include a high price tag and a larger carbon footprint than insulation utilizing recycled and/or natural materials.
