The perks you get with proper attic insulation are often under-rated. Your comfort and utility budget are dramatically affected by how “tight” and insulated your home is.  Lowering or raising the temperature on your thermostat often does no more than raise your utility costs IF the rest of your home is inefficient. Those hot spots and cold drafts all play into temperature control and costs. Most importantly, knowing what small steps to take to increase your efficiency are crucial to comfort and affordability!

Builder Grade Attic Insulation is NOT Enough!

Proper blown in attic insulation can provide you with drastic improvements to your home energy efficiency and comfort. The ProCat product offers homeowners with a lifetime warranty. In comparison, the insulation blown into builder grade homes can collapse after a short number of years. Often, products used by builders are of inferior quality that lose their efficiency in a few short years. However, most homeowners believe that if they have SOME attic insulation, it should be sufficient enough. Not true. Flattened insulation loses its effectiveness, and can increase your energy costs by up to 30%! Having insulation in the attic does not mean that it is worth m

 

How Does Blown-In Insulation Work?

ProCat blown in fiberglass attic insulation uses whole insulation.  It is then broken/cut up into smaller pieces that are then blown into your attic. The air pockets that are created between the small insulation pieces give the product the power. Consider these pockets areas of captured temperature control.  As the level of insulation gets higher, the number of small air pockets increase. Most importantly, the lifetime “no settle” guarantee provides you great benefit.  The air pockets are guaranteed to continue to help control the temperature in your home for the lifetime of the product. As a result, the non-settling products retains the heat during the winter and keeps your home cool during the summer time. This lifetime “no settle” guarantee is crucial to consider as other lower cost products can lose 10-15% of their “fluff” and effectiveness each year!

Blown in attic insulation offers an easy way to reach hard to access areas in your attic. As the large rolls are fed into a machine, the cut particles are blown into the attic via a tube. Accuracy and quick installation are benefits to a fast convenient process. Similarly, proper installation also adds to the efficiency of areas that are otherwise unreachable.
