One of the things that many homeowners overlook about their heating and air conditioning is how hard it has to work to keep temperatures comfortable. If your home is lacking proper insulation, you could be shortening the HVAC system’s life by many years and making your home uncomfortable. You might think that blown-in insulation is a new development in the insulation industry. In reality, it was developed back in the 1970s, and by the end of the decade, there were more than 500 companies in production making it. Then the industry took a devastating blow when the CPSC (Consumer Products Safety Commission) set safety standards that put many of the insulation companies out of business.

Eventually, however, as exhaustive studies showed that cellulose blown-in insulation is actually better in a fire than fiberglass, it gained a footing once again, and it is also environmentally better, another plus. With improved manufacturing processes, this insulation makes a great option for adding energy efficiency to your home. In order for blown-in insulation to be effective as well as safe, however, it must be installed correctly and the manufacturer’s installation guidelines must be followed to the letter.
