Just about everyone is familiar with the value of home insulation whether they know it or not. The simple act of providing an intervening layer between you and the elements is enough to keep you from freezing in the winter and boiling in the summer. Still, there is a wide variety of insulating products but none is better than the AtticCat blown-in system from by Owens Corning. Here are just a few of its advantages:
The insulation in your walls and roof are the first barrier to the infiltration to the heat and cold from the outside. Without this indispensable product, the best HVAC system in the world would not be able to keep you, your family and your guests comfortable. With it, however, your heating and cooling system will not have to work as hard, last longer and provide a more even temperature.
Blown-in insulation provides the most cohesive barrier against the heat, cold and wind of the outside world since it will infiltrate every nook and cranny of the spaces where it is installed. Roll insulation just cannot compete with this product.
Ease of Installation
While a lot of insulation is rolled in or must actually remove and rebuild walls to be installed, blown-in installation can be installed with a minimum of disruption to the existing structure. In fact, in most instances, the entire installation can be accomplished from the attic without any need to disrupt the rest of the house.
Insulation increases the value of a home by decreasing its operating and maintenance costs. Lowered utility bills and an increased lifespan for your HVAC system are just two examples. Superior insulation also shows potential buyers that you have properly maintained your home and increase its market value.
As you can see, insulation should not be a minor consideration for a homeowner. Finding and installing the best one is key to ensuring you own comfort and the proper maintenance of your home.
