With the recent sharp increases in the cost of heating and cooling homes, many people are asking how they can make their homes more comfortable, energy efficient, and save on their energy bills. If your home was built more than 10 years ago it is almost guaranteed that your home is under insulated.

While many people are familiar with Batt insulation, Attic Blown-In insulation is becoming more popular every year. It has many advantages over the traditional fiberglass batts, and is quick and easy to install in most homes. It is great for old houses because it can actually be blown into the attics and walls without a lot of trouble for the homeowner or damage to the home.

Preston Insulation uses two different types of blown-in insulation: fiberglass and cellulose. The fiberglass based blown-in insulation is made from molten glass that is spun into fibers. Most manufacturers use 20%–30% recycled glass content.

Cellulose blown-in insulation is composed of up to
85% recycled newsprint. The remaining content is
most commonly a mixture of ammonium sulfate and
borate that functions as a fire retardant. These
chemicals also deter insects, rodents, and mold.
Because Blown-in insulation is loose material it
can take any shape and is much easier to fit into
oddly shaped spaces such as vaulted ceilings.

We have helped thousands of home owners reduce their utility costs as well as make their homes more comfortable. With the recent energy tax credits offered by the federal government and rebates from the utility companies, there is no better time to boost your insulation and start saving on your monthly bills!

If you make your home more energy-efficient, you will:
1. Reduce your heating and cooling bills.
2. Have a healthier indoor environment.
3. Contribute to a cleaner environment by burning less fuel.
4. Increase the quiet and comfort of your home.
