Blown-in Insulation VS Spray Foam Insulation: A Comprehensive Comparision

When it comes to keeping your home warm and energy efficient, insulation is essential. But with the myriad of insulation options available, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. Here we take an in-depth look at two popular types of insulation: blown-in insulation and spray foam insulation. We will compare their benefits, drawbacks, and cost to help you make an informed decision about which one is best for your home.

We can compare both types of insulation, starting with the benefits of each one as under:

Blown-in Insulation Benefits

Blown-in insulation is a type of loose-fill insulation made from either fiberglass or cellulose that can be applied directly into wall cavities and other areas of your home where traditional batt insulation won’t fit. Blown-in insulation has several benefits, making it a popular choice for many homeowners.

  • It’s easy to install, requires no special tools or equipment, and does not require any cutting or measuring as traditional batt insulation does.
  • Blown-in insulation also helps keep drafts out of your home, resulting in lower energy bills and improved comfort throughout the year.
  • Additionally, this insulation can help reduce noise transfer throughout the house—making it great for soundproofing applications.

Spray Foam Insulation Benefits

Spray foam is a type of rigid foam that is sprayed into place using specialized equipment. It expands quickly upon application to fill cracks and crevices around windows and doors as well as other areas where air leakage may occur in your home’s walls and ceiling. The main benefits of spray foam are:

In conclusion, both blown-in insulation and spray foam have their unique benefits in insulating your home against heat loss/gain, reducing noise transfer between rooms/floors, and preventing air leakage through cracks/crevices around windows/doors. Depending on the scope of the project at hand—whether it’s new construction or a renovation project—one option may be better suited than another based on cost factors as well as product availability in the area you live in (not all products are available everywhere). Ultimately, however, both options offer reliable performance when properly installed by a qualified contractor who knows what they are doing!    So consider all aspects before making a final decision on which type of insulation works best for you!
