Information on Blown-In Insulation

Properly insulating your home can help reduce energy consumption and improve comfort. If you’re still uncomfortable after adjusting the furnace or the AC’s temperature, the problem could be the insulation in your home. You may need to add a layer of insulation to keep you comfortable in extreme weather conditions. To choose the best type of insulation, find out where you need to add insulation and know the recommended R-values. A higher R-value means the insulation material has better thermal performance.

What Is Blown-In Insulation?

One type of insulation you can install is blown-in insulation, which consists of fiberglass, cellulose, or mineral wool and is ideal for hard-to-reach places or attic insulation. You can also layer in more of this type of insulation to keep you comfortable in extreme weather conditions and help you save money.

Types of Blown-in Insulation

The three main types of blown-in insulation are loose-fill fiberglass, cellulose, and rock wool. Fiberglass is light insulation that offers an average of R-2.5 thermal value per inch. Contact us to determine how thick the insulation should be to get adequate insulation for your attic and walls.

Cellulose installation can resist fire and mold, and it’s eco-friendly as it’s made from recycled newspaper and cardboard. Its major downside is that it can become soggy when wet. If you choose cellulose, get regular inspections to avoid roof and pipe leaks that might damage it.

Rock wool insulation is also fire-resistant and offers a thermal value of R-3.3 per inch. It’s made from blast furnace slag, which is heated and mixed with other materials.

How Blown-In Insulation Is Installed

Installing blown-in insulation isn’t a complex process, but you need experienced professionals to avoid expensive mistakes. For the attic, the ideal first step is to seal gaps in electrical wire holes and plumbing, creating an airtight seal. You need a blower hose to apply the right level of insulation thickness, achieving your desired R-value.

For the walls, you need to drill two holes about 12 inches from your ceiling and 3 feet from the floor. You can drill holes either on the exterior or the interior wall. Use an insulation blower to force loose fill or cellulose into each wall cavity and fill it with plastic plugs. If you live in an old home, obstructions such as fire blocks may prevent the insulation from filling the cavity, reducing its value. Avoid mistakes, such as failing to seal air leaks and not completely filling the area with proper insulation, by only hiring experienced professionals to install your insulation.

Benefits of Blown-In Insulation

Blown-in insulation prevents heated and cooled air from escaping outside, effectively sealing your home. As a result, your HVAC system won’t work as hard, extending the service life of your unit and avoiding expensive repairs or replacements. This also reduces energy consumption, helping you save money.

It’s quick and easy to install blown-in insulation, making it an ideal option for busy homeowners. The material used also completely seals the attic, reducing noise from outside. It effectively reduces condensation that might cause unwanted mold and mildew to grow. Hire the right professionals only to ensure the materials are properly installed.

Why Hire a Professional for Installation?

At least two people are needed to properly install blown-in insulation in the attics and walls. One needs to move around the attic with the blower hose while the other operates the unit. While DIY may be possible, hiring experienced professionals to install blown-in insulation is highly recommended. Installing blown-in insulation involves drilling holes — and you need professionals to avoid mistakes or accidents. Getting professional installation can prevent air flow issues and more problems down the road.
