A good layer of insulation is invaluable for your comfort and the health of your appliances and other fixtures. It’s likely your home already has some form of insulation, but many older homes don’t have enough to fit the needs of a modern household.
You might not notice this at first glance, but there are ways to tell if your home is poorly insulated. Even if your insulation worked at first, many materials become less effective over time. As a result, you’ll see a sudden spike in your energy bill. And in colder, stormy weather, poor insulation can result in water getting in through your windows and cracks in the wall.
The best and easiest way to tell if your home needs more insulation is to do a simple touch test. In the summer, the walls inside the house should be cool, and in the winter, they should be warm. And no matter the season, your walls should never be damp.
It all comes back to comfort. You deserve to feel content, relaxed, and protected in your home, regardless of the weather. If that’s not the case, and if you’re shivering in a house with damp walls, Home Service Heroes can provide ProCat blown-in loose-fill insulation to protect your property from the inside out.
What Is Blown-In Insulation?
ProCat Insulation is an unbonded loose-fill fiberglass thermal insulation. It is resistant to mold and is non-combustible.
Plus, it’s the only option for homes with closed walls. It’s also the best option for homes built with existing insulation, as these scraps can be blown into existing wall studs to fill the space that’s needed easily.
The Insulation Process
ProCat insulation is the preferred type that people choose to add insulation to their home. Other forms of blown-in insulation add moisture to the material to help it stick to the wall, but ProCat is kept dry with a loose-fill product.
The process starts by measuring the current level of insulation in inches and determining the amount needed to bring it to the desired R-value. Once we know how much is needed, a member of our highly trained team will use a specialized machine to spray and spread the loose-fill insulation throughout the attic until the desired level is reached.
Once we’ve filled the attic, one of our Home Service Heros will verify the R-value installed and you will start to enjoy the many benefits of a well-insulated home.
Benefits of Blown-In Insulation
When it comes to insulation, we measure effectiveness based on thermal resistance, or R-value. Fiberglass, for example, has an R-value of between three and four per inch. Loose-fill cellulose and other forms of blown-in insulation are a cheaper alternative but may settle and lose effectiveness after time. Only ProCat insulation has a lifetime warranty!
