Insulation

If your home is over 10 years old, there’s a good chance it’s not as well insulated as it should be. Did you know up to 40% of a home’s conditioned air escapes through the attic? If your heating and cooling energy costs are going through the roof, there’s an easy solution. Adding Attic insulation and sealing air leaks can help cut heating and cooling energy bills by up to 20%.

Here’s the Solution, Quantum Builders installs AttiCat® FiberglasTM Insulation

Trained and Certified by Owens Corning on how your roof, ventilation, and attic insulation work together to improve your homes energy efficiency and comfort.

Fiberglass insulation works on the principle of trapped air pockets.  Millions of tiny air pockets form between the tangled strands of the fiberglass insulation.  These air pockets resist the passage of heat flow through the material, reducing heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer.

LESS HASSLE. MORE COMFORT

We’ve partnered with Owens Corning-the insulation and energy-efficiency experts-to help get the job done quickly and effectively.  The use of their proprietary Atticat® Expanding Blown-In Insulation System makes installation:

 

 

QUICK AND EASY

  • Covers entire attic in less than 1.5 hours (1000 sq.ft. attic with R-30)
  • Puts AttiCat® Expanding Blown-in PINK FIBERGLASTM Insulation where you need it, providing optimum insulating R-value for your climate zone
  • Provides complete coverage, even around pipes, wires and outlets

MESS-FREE

  • AttiCat® Expanding PINK FIBERGLASTM Insulation releases and expands completely inside the machine
  • Low-dust system

NO SETTLING

  • AttiCat® Expanding PINK FIBERGLASTM Insulation releases and expands completely inside the machine
  • Low-dust system

SAFE AND RELIABLE

  • Reliable system ensures safe installation in your home
  • AttiCat® Expanding PINK FIBERGLASTM Insulation is noncombustible

The AttiCat® Expanding Blown-in Insulation System uses Owens Corning AttiCatTM Expanding Blown-in PINK FIBERGLASTM Insulation, which is mold-resistant, noncorrosive and does not absorb moisture.  It’s the best choice over alternative loose fill materials.

AttiCat® FiberglasTM Insulation has many Green qualities also. In the world today, more and more businesses and industries are going green and trying to do their part to conserve the environment.  Atticat® helps conserve natural resources by using widely available and plentiful resources such as sand and recycled glass in its manufacturing process. As mentioned before, it saves you 20% or more on energy bills which means you use less energy created from fossil fuels. When it comes to distribution, the compression packaging means more insulation can be shipped per truckload resulting in 25% fewer transportation miles and reducing pollution from truck emissions. Finally, it can take three times as much of another blown-in insulation to achieve the same R-value as AttiCat®.

Fiberglass Vs. Cellulose

AttiCat® FiberglasTM

Cellulose

  • Has the ability to provide the same desired R-value or higher as that of Cellulose.
  • Made from sand and other inorganic materials and has no resin added so it does not itch AT ALL!                 
  • AttiCat® FiberglasTM is naturally noncombustible and remains this way for the lifetime of the product
  • AttiCat® will disappear or melt when in contact with flame and will not smolder or transfer flame.
  • AttiCat® can be blown into walls, floors and attics.
  • AttiCat® will never settle throughout the life of the product.
  • Does not absorb moisture or pick up humidity in the air thus not affecting it’s R-value                    
  • AttiCat® will not corrode pile or wires because it has no resins or chemicals added to retard fire.
  • AttiCat® is Greener than Cellulose. It takes 3 times as much Cellulose to achieve the same R-value as AttiCat®.
  • Very controlled installation process and very clean. No dust blowing around. Little clean up.
  • AttiCat® can also be blown into walls from attic or by using polypropylene fabric over wall cavity and blown in through hole at top.
  • Does not have the same R-value per square inch as Fiber glass products have
  • Cellulose is made from ground up and shredded newspaper but is then treated with harsh fire retardant chemicals
  • These chemicals wear off over-time. Fire rating is only tested up to 6 months after manufacture
  • Cellulose will not burn but will transfer flame and smolder causing smoke to form.
  • Even well treated Cellulose will burn at 450 degrees or the temperature of a 75 watt light bulb
  • Cellulose will settle over time. Manufacturers say >20%
  • When Cellulose gets wet it loses R-value and settles and never obtains its previous R-value. May take 2 months to dry.
  • Cellulose contains chemicals known to corrode pipes and wires over time.
  • Very dusty and dirty installation. Gets everywhere. Lots of clean up.
  • In 10 yrs, Cellulose in an 8’ wall will settle to 2’ leaving 6’ of insulated wall.
