Blown In Insulation
Blown-in insulation is a type of insulation that is installed by blowing it into place using specialized equipment. It is usually made of fiberglass, cellulose, or mineral wool and is installed in the walls, floors, and attic of a home.
Spray foam insulation is a type of insulation that is sprayed onto surfaces using specialized equipment. It is made of a mixture of polyurethane, isocyanate, and other chemicals, and expands to fill the space in which it is applied. It can be used in walls, floors, and attics, as well as in crawl spaces and other hard-to-reach areas.
Both blown-in insulation and spray foam insulation can be effective at improving the energy efficiency of a home, but they have some differences that may make one a better choice for your needs.
Blown-in insulation is typically less expensive than spray foam insulation and is easier to install, but it may not be as effective at sealing air leaks and may not provide as much insulation as spray foam.
Spray foam insulation is more expensive and requires more specialized equipment to install, but it provides a better seal and can be more effective at insulating a home. It is also more durable and has a longer lifespan than blown-in insulation.
