Why You Should Choose the Blown In Wall System

Why You Should Choose the Blown In Wall System

When it comes to insulating walls, most people think of fiberglass batt insulation. For years, fiberglass batt insulation was the only way to insulate walls. Today’s construction technology has many other options! One cost-effective and energy-efficient option is the blown in wall system.

The blown in wall system provides a high-efficiency energy blanket of insulation at a fraction of the cost of spray foam insulation. This system is installed in open cavities during the construction or remodeling process, and can be used in residential or commercial buildings. The blown in wall system gives homes a seamless, thermally efficient blanket of insulation that completely fills any void in the wall cavity.

Here’s how it works:
  • Fabric mesh is installed across the open wall cavity. It is tacked to each stud in the wall assembly.
  • Loose-fill fiberglass insulation is blown behind the fabric mesh. It is installed at a density that fills all voids in the wall cavity.
  • The penetrations in the mesh are sealed to hold the product in place.

There are many benefits to installing the blown in wall system in your next project. The blown in wall system offers:
  • Higher r-values than traditional fiberglass batt insulation, saving on heating and cooling expenses.
  • Reduced air infiltration. National laboratory tests have shown a 68% reduction in air infiltration when installing a blown in wall system over fiberglass batt insulation.
    • TAKE ENERGY EFFICIENCY ONE STEP FURTHER! Air seal each wall cavity prior to installing a blown in wall system to further increase efficiency!
  • Excellent sound control. Because loose fill fiberglass insulation completely fills the wall cavity, noise transfer is reduced.
  • Does not settle. Because the insulation is dense packed, there’s no chance of it setting and affecting r-value.

The DeVere Team is Going to the Dogs!

The DeVere Team is Going to the Dogs!

We are so proud to share this story!

Our team member, Tim Smith, owns Jake, a Black and Tan Coonhound. Tim adopted Jake from a dog rescue in Phoenix, MD. Tim noticed Jake's nose for tracking when he did it for fun a few times after obedience classes.

Today, Jake and Tim volunteer for Dogs Finding Dogs. Dogs Finding Dogs is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization of highly trained handlers and dogs that can track and find a lost pet.

Jake has success tracking both dogs and cats, and is known for his endurance and stamina. While Jake can do all types of tracks, his breed is built for rural tracks where the animal being searched has covered a lot of ground.

Higher Performance for Hybrid Systems: HY-Fi

Higher Performance for Hybrid Systems: HY-Fi

Homeowners and builders today are installing high-performing hybrid insulation systems. These systems have the air sealing properties of spray foam at a lower cost than full foam. Until now, most hybrid systems are thought of as spray foam finished with fiberglass.

The innovative HY-Fi hybrid insulation system from Fi-Foil is changing that. And both contractors and homeowners are thrilled with the results.

The HY-Fi hybrid insulation system provides a very cost-effective approach to creating high R-value walls.  When used in combination with traditional insulation, such as fiberglass batts or spray foam, the HY-Fi hybrid insulation system creates a superior insulating system.

Here are some benefits of using HY-Fi on your next project:
  • HY-Fi enhances the performance of the building envelope by maximizing open air spaces in the wall cavity.
  • HY-Fi reflects heat away from the cavity and adds high-performing R-value to the wall. This additional R-value can reduce the amount of spray foam insulation needed to achieve the desired R-Value, reducing overall project cost.
  • HY-Fi can help you achieve a higher R-value in small wall spaces. It’s an ideal solution in areas with strict building codes.
  • HY-Fi is more efficient to install than fiberglass, meaning your job can be installed in less time than before.
  • The air cavity that is created between the spray foam and HY-Fi is a builder’s dream! Now contractors and homeowners have the ability to run additional cables (audio, video, etc) behind finished walls without having to drill through full spray foam.
