If you are upgrading your attic space, we blow in insulation on top of your batt to achieve desired insulation values. An “R” 60 value is the recommended level of insulation for maximum energy efficiency in most attics. An “R” value is the level of heat flow resistance provided by the insulation material. The higher the “R” value the greater the insulation performance. When we re-insulate an attic space due to moisture, mold, or other contamination we first install batt, and then blow in insulation on top of it. We also use batt insulation to insulate around attic access doors.
The questions should not be blown in or batt, rather – where to use blown in vs where to use batt insulation! ATTIC ACCESS DOORS CAN BE A SOURCE OF ENERGY LOSS We also carry and install the Attic Tent® for increased insulation of attic entry hatches. The Attic Tent
