By insuring your Whitby, Ontario home or business, you can save thousands of dollars in energy costs over time. The Canadian Department of Energy’s greatest tip for lowering heating and cooling costs is to insulate your home’s attic, ceilings, internal walls, basements, crawl spaces, and garages.
We Choose Blown-in Insulation
To fill nooks and crevices, our expert staff can also pour loose insulation or spray it with a hose. Blown insulation, like batt insulation, is commonly sourced from rock wool and fiberglass.
Blown insulation is more efficient than batt insulation and maybe put faster than any other type of insulation. This sort of insulation is ideal for walls and floors, as well as attics and enclosed spaces like roofs, where the space between the joists may be uneven or packed with objects.
The following are the advantages of insulating your home with us:
- Increased property resale value
- A more quiet environment.
- A more hospitable interior climate.
- A house with enhanced fire safety.
- A more environmentally friendly dwelling.
Cost of Cellulose Insulation
Blown-in cellulose is typically more expensive than fiberglass, costing around $1.20 per square foot. The cost of cellulose insulation per bag is normally between $30 and $40. It is constructed with recycled materials such as newspaper and cardboard. The higher the R-value, the higher the cost of each project. Cellulose insulation is available in damp-spray and dense-pack varieties.
|Material||Cost per Square Foot||Project Sustainability|
|Wet-Spray Cellulose||$0.60 – $1.80||New construction|
|Dense-Pack Cellulose||$2.00 – $2.30||Remodeling|
While there are some benefits to using paper-based insulation.
Among the benefits of cellulose are:
- Low-cost — Because cellulose is mostly constructed of paper, it is an even more affordable form of insulation, costing approximately 75% of the price of fiberglass.
- Easy Installation — Because cellulose comes in little pieces and there are numerous ways to install it, it fits well with the structures of most homes but can be rather untidy to install.
- Does not lose its R-value in extreme cold
How Much Blown In Insulation Will I Require?
To calculate the amount of bags of insulation required for a project, follow a few simple steps:
- Calculate the square footage of your project space.
- Determine which R-value is appropriate for the area(s) of the home that will be insulated.
- Determine the square footage covered by a bag of insulation of your choice.
- Determine the R-value of the insulation you’ve chosen.
- If your home’s R-value needs to match the R-value of the chosen insulation, simply purchase enough insulation to cover the required square footage (with some overage).
- If the R-value of your insulation is less than what your home requires, add more bags to achieve the proper R-value. Most manufacturers give a handy chart directly on the packaging to assist you in calculating the amount of bags to purchase.
