Home insulation is an efficient way to keep homes warm in winters and cool in summers. It saves one a lot of dollars by saving energy.
Home insulation cost varies on the type of insulation, size of the area to be covered, labor costs, and the R-value one desires to achieve.
For instance, the R-value of blown-in insulation ranges from 2.2 to 4.3 per inch depending on whether it is cellulose or fiberglass. Ten inches of blown-in fiberglass insulation will achieve an R-value of 22 to 43 as compared to ten inches of cellulose insulation giving an R-value of 32 to 37.

For warmer climates, get the insulation done before the mercury rises.
