What You Should Know About Blown-In Insulation

Posted on News September 29, 2010

All Year Cooling utilizes AttiCat blown-in insulation from Owens Corning. This is a fiberglass insulation that does not settle so that it maintains its insulating power. The fiberglass material contains tiny air pockets that resist the passage of heat flow.

There has been a lot of speculation as to the safety of fiberglass insulation, but the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services concludes that fiberglass is most dangerous during installation when tiny glass particles are unsettled and installers may breathe the material. When settled, it does not pose a threat to the homeowner in everyday life.

All Year Cooling’s technicians make all of the proper preparations before they begin blowing the insulation into the attic. Ductwork is lifted off of the floor so it does not become trapped under the insulation where the warmth created and the cool air flowing through the ductwork may cause condensation, which may lead to mold.

We also make sure that your attic can breathe through attic rafter vents. Our technicians will ensure that the attic is properly ventilated while providing exceptional insulation. Insulation depth and density may be adjusted to meet proper R-value, or thermal resistance, recommended for your home. We even use R-value rulers during installation.

Proper insulation may help to reduce your heating and cooling costs by up to 20%! Insulation will also improve your family’s comfort and may even increase the resale value of your house. All Year Cooling employs individuals with expertise in all aspects of the air conditioning fields from air conditioning itself to indoor air quality and insulation.
