Making an insulation blowing machine work to your advantage

April 08, 2020

Homes which are properly insulated provide a better indoor environment for heating and cooling purposes. 


Insulation plays a crucial role in providing homeowners with a more energy efficient and safe standard of living. 


That is why it is vital to keep insulation correctly installed, intact and well-maintained. 


Keeping on top of your insulation

To achieve this, an insulation blowing machine should be your first port of call. The air pressure that is created by the blower or compressor blows the insulation out from the sealed chamber through the hose. 



These machines comes in two options: electric or gas-powered. To deliver top performance along with a long service life, it is recommended that a suitable lubricant be used accordingly as these machines operate with the aid of accessories, e.g. hoses, fittings, and fill tubes. 


Practical benefits

The use of insulation blowing machines became popular due to the benefits they provide to users. When compared to other methods of installations, blown-in insulation is more efficient. In other words, loose-fill insulation with a monolithic layer is considered to perform better compared to batts of the same value. 



Another great advantage is that convience remains king thanks to their easy and quick installation process. Such blowing machines only require two installers to carry out the installation, one will feed the material into the machine while the other will spread it to the area to be insulated. End users will be delighted to know that this diminished amount of time and effort will result in lower service costs.


Play to their strengths

There are some considerations to be mindful of when operating blowing machines. The connections, hoses and fill tubes must be  airtight to prevent weakening the pressure required to blow the insulation material. In areas with narrow cavities, it is necessary to reduce the diameter of the hose to about 2 inches. In this case, the insulation will travel only about one foot but in most circumstances they travel several feet from the end of the hose to the section of the attic or floor cavity. 



Last but not least, a machine is only as good as its supplier. We at Heat Seal Equipment Ltd. are renowned for our cost-effective insulation blowing machine models (gas, diesel, or electric). Better still, all of our machines are efficient and easy to use, ensuring your insulation needs are never far out of reach.
