As the weather cools down all across Minnesota, homeowners are thinking of higher bills, and colder houses. What if we told you that there’s another way? At Tollefson Bros. Exteriors, we’re a blown-in insulation contractor that can help you cut down on your energy bills while also helping you be more comfortable in your home, regardless of the temperature outside.
Blown-In Insulation from Owens-Corning
When it comes to blown-in insulation, the team at Tollefson Bros. uses products from Owens-Corning, one of the most well respected insulation companies in the entire world. It’s important to realize that not all blown-in insulation is created equally and just because you’re getting a good deal on the insulation material itself, doesn’t mean that it’s actually going to save you the money that you may be expecting.
Blown-in insulation is measured by “R” values. Recommendations in Minnesota are typically for values between R-38 and R-60. Aside from the “R” values, you also need to work with an insulation contractor that considers proper ventilation around your ridge vents, soffit vents and baffles.
How Much Money Can I Save With New Attic Blown-In Insulation?
While you never can control the energy rates from the local heating company, you can control the efficiency of your home. Thanks to blown-in fiberglass insulation you can expect to save roughly 20% on your annual energy bills.
How Do I Know Whether I Need New Blown-In Insulation?
If your home was built several decades ago, there’s likely a good chance that you could benefit from new blown-in insulation in your attic. If your home is new construction, it’s hard to say whether the builder spent the extra money necessary to install high quality blown-in insulation.
The best advice is to give a reputable insulation contractor a call if you have any doubt as to whether you have adequate attic insulation. At Tollefson Bros. Exteriors, we can come to your home and take a look at your existing insulation to determine if you could benefit from new blown-in insulation.
