Blown vs. Rolled Insulation

Rolling it out only fits between ceiling joists, resulting in a compromised fit around plumbing, piping, and conduit.

Where Insulation Makes the Biggest Difference

The attic is the primary area to focus on for insulation. By insulating the attic, you retain warmth during winter by preventing heat from escaping and also block heat from entering during summer, maintaining a comfortable temperature in your home at a lower cost.

Payback Period for Attic Insulation

In most cases, the savings from reduced energy bills due to decreased usage of air conditioning and heating systems lead to attic insulation paying for itself within 1-2 years.
