Efforts are being made in many industries to find ways to be more energy-efficient. One of the ways that HiLine Homes focuses on this issue is by using a blow-in wall insulation system in all of their homes.
A well-insulated home needs less energy to heat in the winter and less energy to cool in the summer. It is a very important component of an energy-efficient home. Why does HiLine Homes do this when many other builders only use batted insulation?
Why Use Blown-in Wall Insulation?
Blow-in wall insulation fills in all gaps and voids in your walls and provides the highest attainable R-value in a wall. There are many benefits of a blow-in insulation system, including higher R-values, superior sound control, and reduced air infiltration which will significantly improve the energy efficiency of your home.
- Good insulation, properly installed, is your primary defense against growing energy costs.
- It is the simplest and most cost-effective way to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.
- According to the E.P.A., it also saves over 600 times more energy each year than all the compact fluorescent lights, Energy Star appliances, and Energy Star windows combined.
The concept of energy efficiency is simple: “Less Energy to Provide the Same Services.”
