Insulation creates a dense, effective barrier that helps slow the transfer of heat from the attic into your home, keeping it cooler.
Low insulation means your home can't hold its temperature very long resulting in your HVAC system running all day.

There are three main types of blown-in insulation. The three most common types of blown-in insulation are loose-fill fiberglass, cellulose, and rock wool—each with its own pros and cons. Minimum suggested insulation values vary by geographic zones, and you can find the recommended values for your region on this Energy Star map. Not all types of blown-in insulation offer the same thermal value, but in most cases, even adding a little insulation is better than not adding any at all.
Blown-in insulation fills between existing wall studs and ceiling joists quickly and easily .During new construction, batt insulation—thick strips of spun fiberglass or a paper-based product—is cut to fit between wall studs and ceiling joists before the wallboard is put up to increase insulation values. Installing batts in most existing homes, however, is rarely feasible, as drywall would have to be torn down, a messy, expensive, time-consuming proposition. Blown-in insulation can be added to attics and walls without the hassle. What’s more, this type of insulation can also seal small gaps and spaces as it settles, filling these sneaky spots where cold air would otherwise come in. And in addition to creating an insulating blanket, blown insulation helps reduce sound transfer between the outdoors and the indoors, so unwanted street noise will also be softened.
