Benefits of Blown-In Insulation
It’s efficient, it’s easy to install, it’s flame resistant, and it’s a great investment in your home. There are a few of the benefits you’ll experience if you choose to utilize blown-in insulation in your home. Because blown-in insulation doesn’t have seams that come with other insulation types, studies show that blown-in insulation can be up to 22% more efficient. Blown-in insulation typically takes just a few hours to put in place whereas other batting style insulations can take much longer. So you’re looking at a quick and efficient insulation alternative.
The amount of money you should save on energy costs will add up quickly after you install your blown-in insulation, more than paying for itself, and even bringing a return on your investment in your home. This airtight insulation material is excellent for reducing the risk of fires in your home. Its fire retardant capabilities prevents air from flowing through small spaces and fueling the flame. So you can see, blown-in insulation has many benefits.
Blown-In Insulation Types
The most common types of blown-in insulation include cellulose, fiberglass, and mineral (rock or slag) wool. Loose-fill insulation consists of small particles of fiber, foam, or other materials. These components are sold in compressed blocks which are broken down into tiny pieces by a powerful machine known as an insulation blower. The blower then forces the insulation through a large hose and into the space needing insulation. Blown-in insulation is good for adding insulation to existing finished areas, irregularly shaped areas, and around obstructions. All of the materials used for blown-in insulation are produced using recycled waste materials.
- Cellulose is primarily made from recycled newsprint
- Most fiberglass contains 20% to 30% recycled glass
- Mineral wool is usually produced from 75% post-industrial recycled content
Blown-In Insulation Cost
For many homeowners, blown-in insulation has quickly surpassed more traditional insulation installation methods. To fully insulate an attic, crawl space, or the walls of your home – including all cracks and crevices – blown-in insulation gets the job done like no other. Across the country, the average cost for blown-in insulation is around $1,300. However, the amount you pay can significantly vary due to numerous factors, such as the size of your home, the amount of insulation required, and the amount of time the job takes.
At Paradigm Roofs, we offer comprehensive quotes for all our services to ensure you know exactly what you’re paying. Insulation is an investment in your home’s lifespan and energy efficiency. By having the right insulation, you effectively retain heat during the winter and prevent the cold air from escaping during the summer.

Blown in Insulation Maintenance
Blown in insulation is one of the most convenient, cost-effective, and efficient methods available to insulate the inner walls or attic of your home. This type of insulation is blown into the area and spread over the entire surface area. The little fibers begin to fill in each crevice and hole, allowing for less air to escape. This, in turn, keeps your entire home warm during the winter and cool during the summer when you have the air running.
Thankfully, very little maintenance is required once blown in insulation has been installed. On occasion, you may need to check the insulation to ensure the entire surface area remains covered. If that is not the case, you may want to perform some maintenance and have a new layer blown in. Alternatively, if the insulation is more than ten years old, you should consider changing it out for a new coat.
