At Penner Insulating we use a high quality blown-in insulation that completely covers the attic floor, leaving no problem cracks and spaces like batt insulation does. We believe that high quality blown-in insulation offers one of the most cost effective solutions for preventing air leaks and drafts in your home. Some of the reasons to choose blown-in fibreglass insulation over other methods include:
Blown-in fibreglass insulation retains R-value without settling.
Blown-in fibreglass insulation is resistant to moisture absorption.
Blown-in fibreglass insulation will not corrode pipes or wires.
Blown-in fibreglass insulation is naturally non-combustible.
Blown-in fibreglass insulation does not contain formaldehyde.
What is R-Value?
R-value is a measure of thermal resistance used in the building and construction trades. It refers to the amount of heat flow through a given thickness of material. To put it simply, the higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power.
Does your home have sufficient insulation in the attic for energy efficiency? In order to achieve the R-values that are recommended for your Saskatchewan home, attic insulation should be at least 14” to 16” inches deep, depending on the type of insulation used.
