Saving Money with Blow-In Insulation: Is it Worth the Investment?

Are you looking for a cost-effective way to keep your home at the perfect temperature all year round? Blow-in insulation is an easy and inexpensive way to do just that. Cellulose insulation, specifically, is one of the most affordable types of insulation, and it’s also one of the most effective. Valley Insulation explains why blow-in insulation is worth the investment and how it can help you save money in the long run.

Blow-in cellulose insulation is made from recycled paper products

Did you know that cellulose insulation is not only energy-efficient but it’s also made from recycled materials? That’s right! Instead of contributing to landfills, Nu-Wool recycles paper products and transforms them into cellulose insulation. 

This eco-friendly insulation option can save homeowners money on energy bills while reducing their environmental footprint. You’ll do your part to save the planet and save money. Win-win!

It is treated to resist fire, mold, and insects

The cellulose insulation we use, Nu-Wool, offers environmentally friendly benefits, but it provides a great option to insulate your home. The treatment process adds borate to the insulation, which helps resist fire, mold, and insects. Borate comes from a naturally occurring substance, often used as a pesticide, but it’s also effective at preventing damage to the cellulose insulation.

And don’t worry. This treatment won’t affect the insulation’s R-value. The R-value measures the insulation’s effectiveness at resisting the flow of heat, so you can rest assured that your home will be well-insulated with blow-in insulation.

Our team blows cellulose insulation into attics and walls

We accomplish this process with a special machine that breaks down the insulation into small pieces and then blows it through a long hose from our truck into your attic or the walls. Once inside the attic or walls, the cellulose insulation fills any gaps and creates a barrier that helps keep the indoor temperature of your home comfortable year-round.

It is an environmentally friendly option

In addition to its affordability and effectiveness, cellulose insulation provides a great choice if you want green, eco-friendly insulation in your home. This is because cellulose insulation comes from recycled paper products, like old newspapers, which means it helps reduce landfill waste and serves as a sustainable resource. 

Choosing an insulation company that offers blow-in cellulose insulation gives you a chance to make your home as eco-friendly as possible. Your investment will keep more paper products out of landfills, but it also reduces your carbon footprint depending on how your home gets power. You might burn less coal, natural gas, or propane to keep your home comfortable.

It is more affordable than fiberglass insulation

Another advantage of blow-in cellulose insulation is the affordability versus fiberglass insulation. In fact, you’ll find prices of cellulose insulation at or even below the costs of fiberglass insulation. Both types of insulation have similar R-values, typically ranging from R-3.2 to R-3.8 per inch of thickness.

However, cellulose insulation offers faster installation times, which lowers your labor costs. Technicians can blow cellulose insulation into attics and walls much faster than unrolling and stapling fiberglass insulation batts. Another great thing? Cellulose insulation comes from recycled paper products, making it cheaper than fiberglass.
