Blown Fiberglass Insulation

Best Choice for Blown Fiberglass Insulation in the Washington, DC Metro Area (including Maryland and Virginia Surrounding Areas)


blown fiberglass insulationFiberglass batting insulation has been around for years, and has proven to be a cost-effective and efficient way to insulate a home. You may be familiar with the rolls of (often) pink insulation – that's fiberglass insulation. New technology now allows for fiberglass insulation to be installed using special blowing equipment.

How Is Blown Fiberglass Installed?

One technician feeds the fiberglass into the machine outside the home. The machine shreds the fiberglass and blows the shreds through a hose. A second technician operates the hose and aims the insulation to where it is needed, making sure to get every nook and cranny so no gaps remain.

Blow Fiberglass Insulation Over Existing Insulation

Blown fiberglass insulation can be installed over your existing insulation, as long as your existing insulation is not wet or moldy. This means less cost and less waste, and an extra layer of fiberglass over your current insulation will keep your attic warmer for longer.

Benefits Of Blown Fiberglass Insulation

  • A very affordable way to improve energy efficiency and reduce utility costs
  • Fast: a typical attic can be done in one day
  • Can often be installed over your current, underperforming, insulation
  • No hazardous fumes or off-gassing
  • No maintenance, long-lasting, "once and done" solution that will save you thousands of dollars on your utility bills for years to come

Air Sealing + Insulation

No matter what kind if insulation you use, it won't stop energy being lost through air leaks. Air sealing should always be done before insulation to ensure that energy isn't lost through gaps and cracks in the attic.

Learn More About Insulation

We were unaware of what was involved in an energy audit and your audior took the time to explain everything. We were impressed with the report which told us the areas in which we need to take action on. He never pressured us to use any particular contractors, he just suggested that we go to the HomeEnergyTeam web site to select contractors of our own choice. He did an excellent job and we HIGHLY recommend the Home Energy Team Affiliates. We already have recommended them to several of our neighbors. Again, EXCELLENT JOB!

Willie Gantt

Your home energy audit proved to be very informative and helpful. I was not aware of the updraft created inside our walls because of the balloon framing construction. You said that that can cause heat to be pulled out of the house with the draft going up inside the walls and should be re-mediated. You also said that the attic insulation was insufficient and that fiberglass batts can leave spaces for around the edges causing heat loss and that it should have blown in insulation on top of what was there to seal the whole attic and increase the R factor. Thank You for all your advice and expertise. You made me aware of things I should consider and did the upgrades. I can already see the difference on my utility bills!
