Older Utica, NY Homes Stay Warmer with Blown-In Insulation

Utica, NY can get pretty chilly once the winter weather hits. You expect your home to be a warm, comfortable haven from the freezing cold outdoor weather. But, if your house lacks the proper insulation, you can count on not being as warm as you’d like inside – and you can bet that your utility bills will be higher than you’d like. Fortunately, blown-in insulation is a great choice for your Utica home. You’ll add the needed insulation to stay more comfortable, and cut down on energy costs.

If you’ve been looking into adding insulation to your home, you probably have seen a lot of information about spray foam insulation. This is a great option if you’ve gutted areas of your house, or if you have a new build. But if you have an older home, spray foam may not always be an ideal choice. That’s because the walls are closed up, and unless you’re planning a remodeling project, it’s likely they’ll stay that way. When you opt for blown in insulation for your Utica home, however, you won’t have to worry about taking down walls.

Our experts can provide the blown in insulation you need for your Utica home, with minimal construction.

At Standard Insulating Co., we’re experienced with all types of insulation installation, including blown in insulation. We know older homes can present some challenges, such as wall blockages or electrical wiring. We’re qualified to look for any concerns, talk with you about your options, and then professionally install the blown-in insulation you need for your Utica, NY home. Our installers will follow these steps when they provide you with the insulation you need:

  • First, our installers will drill holes, one from the ceiling and one from the floor, at about 16” intervals.
  • Then, they’ll use an insulation blower to force the blown-in insulation into your walls.
  • Finally, all the holes will be plugged, either with spackle or plastic plugs.

Blown in insulation is made from cellulose, which is a plant-based material. That means, it’s a safe choice. Our insulation is made of up to 85% recycled paper waste material, with the remaining portion made of a fire-retardant treatment that gives our insulation a Class-1 fire rating. Aside from keeping your Utica, NY home comfortable year-round, blown in insulation also provides a noise barrier and helps keep rodents and insects out.
