With blown-in insulation there are two types of material that are used in the insulation industry, fibreglass or cellulose. Although both have their pros and cons usually it depends on the opinions of your trusted contractor to help you decide which is best for your home. Yvon Insulation offers both blown-in fibreglass insulation and blown-in cellulose insulation. To read more about our cellulose insulation please visit the Blown-in cellulose insulation page!
Fiberglass insulation is one of the most effective products for increased thermal performance. Fibreglass does not shrink, does not burn and is moisture resistant. Insects also do not eat fiberglass and this will ensure it does not deteriorate. Blown-in fiberglass allows for it to fill the selected area or wall cavity, providing a consistent layer of insulation. For areas such as attics, blown-in fibreglass insulation can really help decrease any energy costs due to the enormous heat loss in attics for the winter months. As well as remove the effect of attic heat hoarding in the summer months. Around 30% of your energy costs can be crossed out if your home is properly insulated and air sealed with the right ventilation. You will be taking a large stress off your heating and cooling system.
