Insulation for Michigan Homes
While many homeowners throw a lot of miscellaneous items up in their attic for much-needed storage space and then tend to forget about it, your attic actually serves a higher purpose. Because your attic acts as a protective barrier between your home and the elements outside, having the right amount of insulation is essential. If your attic doesn’t have enough insulation, your heating and cooling systems often have to work harder to keep your home comfortable year-round. If you live in the Lansing, Howell, Brighton, Owosso and Grand Haven area, you can entrust all your insulation needs to Weather Vane Roofing. We specialize in both blown-in cellulose and blown-in fiberglass insulation for Michigan homes.
Benefits of Blown-In Cellulose Insulation
Because cellulose is mostly made of recyclable materials, blown-in cellulose insulation is an environmentally friendly insulation choice. Made primarily out of recycled newspapers and cardboard, this type of insulation is usually cheaper and is said to be better for your health because it doesn’t contain fiberglass. Used to loosely fill in a closed wall or attic, blown-in cellulose insulation has a higher R-value than other forms of insulation, making it an energy-efficient choice. Often treated with boric acid, this type of insulation offers better resistance to fire, mold, and insects.
Benefits of Blown-In Fiberglass Insulation
Blown-in fiberglass insulation is used to loose-fill closed walls and around your attic. Usually made of recycled glass and sand, blown-in fiberglass insulation can help you extend the life of your HVAC system and help you reduce outside noises from penetrating your home. This type of insulation is easy to install and can help you increase your home’s overall energy-efficiency while preventing moisture damages and fires. Because it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals or additives, this type of insulation is usually recommended for those with allergies.

Because it’s able to get down in-between the smallest crevices in your attic, blown-in insulation usually offers a tighter, more energy-efficient seal than standard insulation.
