Stinson Services, Inc. is a professional Minneapolis insulation contractor that provides two types of insulation services to local homes. Each type of insulation has pros and cons depending on your budget and the comfort level you’re looking for in your home.
Below are the two types of attic insulation used by Stinson:
Blow-In Cellulose Insulation: A recycled product made from mostly recycled paper fiber and fire retardant material that is blown in with a high-pressure vacuum. The small fibers of the cellulose insulation create a blanket of attic insulation able to fill small cracks and seams to keep your home insulated. The benefits of blow-in cellulose insulation its cheaper price and the recycled materials it uses.
Fiberglass Insulation: This product is similar to blow-in insulation in that it’s able to get into tight areas and seal off any small gaps or holes there may be in the attic space. It is also blown in like cellulose insulation, but the one major advantage is the cleanliness of the fiberglass insulation.
Since it first began insulation for homes has come along way. Technology and products have helped in both energy conservation and application categories. Stinson Services, Inc. is a licensed and insured Minnetonka, MN insulation contractor that can offer these new improvements to your home.
Below is a list of benefits to your home properly installed attic insulation can bring:
All Season Protection: Attic insulation does more than protect your Minnetonka home from the harsh winter temperatures. It also provides a barrier between your home and the hot summer months. Attic insulation should be viewed as more of a thermos rather than a warm winter jacket. SSI professional Minnetonka insulation crews can provide knowledge as to why upgrading might be a good idea.
Reduced Energy Bills: Because you upgraded your attic insulation will be working at all times, it’s easy to notice the long-term savings you’ll be making with the upgrade. Whether you choose cellulose insulation or fiberglass insulation, you can see up to 25% savings in the summer and nearly 50% during the winter, simply by upgrading your attic insulation.
Sound Protection: Insulation does more than just add protection from the hot and cold temperatures. A properly installed attic will help deaden the sounds coming in and out of your home. So if you’re a heavy rocker, have children, or live by an airport, you’ll notice the difference.
Home Value: People don’t normally think about the correlation between improved attic insulation and rising resale value on their home. However, an experienced home buyer will be sure to look into added home expenses such as energy bills and utilities to determine the overall cost of a home payment. If your home is properly insulated and you’re able to show the potential buyer the history of your energy bills, you can expect a much quicker sale than otherwise.
Attic ventilation is the flow of air throughout your attic. Attic ventilation a key component to keeping your home in top shape and having a healthy living environment. Your home’s attic ventilation regulates the temperatures in your attic that can cause damage to the exterior/interior of your home. Without proper attic ventilation you can expect to see shingle failure due to excessive heat build up or mildew problems due to condensation.
Unregulated attic temperatures not only cause harm to your home but can be hazardous to the occupants of the home. Mildew and moisture can breed allergens and other toxins that can harm you and your family. Make sure to have your attic inspected by a professional if you’re concerned of improper attic ventilation.
