Fill ‘Er Up

The wall insulation was blown in today. This is an ultra fit blow-in insulation rated at R-24. A traditional batt insulation would only be able to provide an R-19 rating on a 2×6 exterior wall, so between this and the brick veneer we should have a very airtight home. Once the sheetrock is hung on the ceilings they will come back and blow in enough insulation in the attic to reach an R-49 value, per Energy Star’s recommendation. We did opt for an R-13 batt insulation on the basement walls as well as all of the interior walls to help with sound dampening.
