When installing insulation in your remodeled room or addition, use blown-in insulation instead of fiberglass batts to save money. The material is less expensive, and you will save on labor costs because it takes far less time to blow in insulation than to cut and install batt. In the long run, you will also save on energy costs for heating and cooling your home because the blown-in insulation material does a much better job of filling small gaps and other spaces that can be missed when batt is installed. In short, you save on immediate costs of installation and materials, and you save a bit each year in heating and cooling costs.
