Blown-In Insulation Contractors
Blown-In Insulation Experts in the Washington, DC Metro Area (including Maryland & Virginia Surrounding Area)
"Blown-in" or "blown" insulation can significantly improve the insulation value in your unfinished attic, preventing heat loss through the roof of your house and helping to keep your home energy costs under control.
Fiberglass And Cellulose Blown Insulation
Blown fiberglass and cellulose are the two materials used for blown insulation. They have similar R-values, and both are considered "fluffy" insulation.
How is Blown Insulation Installed?
These two materials use the same method for installation: A blowing machine is kept outside the house, and the insulation is blown through a flexible hose by a skilled technician, who can direct the insulation to exactly where it's needed. Installation is relatively fast.
Keep Your Existing Insulation
A benefit of blown-in insulation is that in can be blown directly on top of your existing insulation, provided your insulation is in good condition, with no moisture or mold spots.
Insulate Hard-to-Reach Places
Another benefit of blown-in insulation is that it can be blown into concealed areas, such as wall cavities. Instead of ripping out walls to insulate, then having to re-build the walls, with blown insulation you simply make a small hole in the wall and blow the insulation in. The hole can be patched very easily, and with a lot less expense than building new walls.

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!

The energy auditor was very professional and I am very satisfied with both the energy audit and the report I received. I will be referring the Home Energy Team Affiliates.
I was very satisfied with the auditor. He was great and gave me some very valuable information. I will refer him to people I know who may need a home energy audit.
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!
