Fiberglass Blowing Insulation
Forty-six million U.S. homes either have no insulation at all in the attic or are woefully under-insulated. The TrueComfort system is an excellent way to tap this lucrative retrofit market. Distributors can purchase blowing machines and rent them to local contractors, while contractors who are
serious about adding insulation retrofits to their service offering can buy
their own machines.
TrueComfort is easy to transport: 16 packages vs. 46 packages of cellulose for a 1000 sq. ft. area. Achieve the same R-Value more easily and with less waste.
TrueComfort Blown-In Fiberglass Insulation
TrueComfort® is the perfect product for contractors and remodelers who want to add attic insulation retrofits to their list of services. It’s actually a system: TrueComfort blown-in fiberglass insulation and the blowing machine used to install it. The insulation is super-expanding, so fewer bags are required to achieve the target R-Value than with cellulose insulation products. And, like other CertainTeed fiberglass blowing insulation, it’s easy to install, less dusty, noncombustible and noncorrosive, and
won’t settle over time.
The TrueComfort machine is portable and simple to operate. It consists of two pieces, a base and a hopper, for easy transportation. Wheels on the base make it maneuverable, and it runs off of one basic 15-amp outlet.
