But fiberglass batts and rolls have constraints for retrofit applications, homeowners are wise to take into consideration blow-in insulation as a choice for boosting the house’s insulation R-value. R-value is the market standard for determining the resistance value of particular shielding products; the higher the R-value, the better the product insulates.
Made from recycled paper, cardboard, and various other wood-based materials, blow-in cellulose is treated with boric acid and other substances that make it fire and mold-resistant. It is then packaged in securely packed bales or bags. Installation involves the use of a mechanical blower/hopper that churns up the cellulose product with paddles to loosen it as well as mix it with air, then distributes the cosy insulation with hoses to anywhere that it is required.
Blow-in insulation is commonly considered the very best way of adding insulation in existing buildings and construction, both for attic areas and also in wall cavities.
Blow-in cellulose insulation is a favorite among property owners who like green products, considering that the material is made totally from recycled paper as well as wood products, with very few artificial processes or chemicals included.
How It Is Done for Attic Spaces
ONCOR HVAC Contractor
Master Tech has been selected, for the 5th year to be a part of Oncor’s 2021 HEE (High Energy Efficiency) and LIW (Low Income Weatherization) programs.
This is a huge Federal program that only works with a select group of HVAC contractors throughout the State of Texas. Master Tech was amongst the first 5 contractors to be in the program during its inception.
We were also the winner of Oncor’s Best of the Best award the only year that award was given. The program is intended to incentivize homeowners who upgrade their HVAC systems to higher SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) units.
The program pays us the incentive, which we take directly off of the sales price up front. Oncor requires us to call this an “incentive,” not “rebate” or “discount,” as Oncor wants/needs to the homeowner to understand they are incentivizing them (paying back) to use less energy. Unfortunately, many contractors on the program do not reduce the sales price, they just receive the money from Oncor without telling the customer they are getting incentivized.
Our core values are Integrity, Accountability, and Customer Commitment. We would love to help you get the best deal possible on your HVAC unit.
