It's true! Right in your very own home, you have the power to reduce the energy you use each month. Simply turning down the thermostat is not enough. It only reduces your saves pennies on your utility bills! Lets talk about long-term savings tips! This month we are going to focus on INSULATION!

Adding insulation to your attic utilizing our Owens Corning AttiCat Expanding Blown-In PINK Fiberglas Insulation System is a must!

Fiberglas™ Insulation works on the principle of trapped air pockets. Millions of tiny air pockets form between the tangled strands of the Fiberglas™ Insulation. These air pockets resist the passage of heat fl ow through the material, reducing heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. Generally, the thicker the insulation, the more air pockets and the higher the R-value.

R-VALUE DEFINED: The insulation performance of all insulation products is measured by a common standard: the R-value. R-value measures resistance to heat fl ow; the higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. R-value is usually determined by the thickness of the insulation. With our Owens Corning AttiCat® Blown-In Insulation System, you can blow-in insulation as thick as you want to achieve any desired R-value!


Fiber Glass – loose fill fiber glass experiences less than 2% settling and delivers the R-value stated on its package for the life of the home.

Cellulose – can experience up to 25% settling, losing 15 to 25 percent of its R-value. Installers 
must apply at the “inital installed thickness” listed on the bag to get the desired R-value.
