What is Blown In Insulation?

Blown In Insulation

You may have heard this term before with contractors and real estate agents, but you might not know precisely what it means. No worries, because we here at Fresh Air & Heat are here to help! Blow-in insulation (or loose-fill insulation) refers to the process of filling stud, joist cavities, or covering attic floors, with any loose material that has an excellent insulating R-value. Styrofoam pellets or loose fiberglass fibers are materials for this purpose. However, the standard material is cellulose. Whether it’s for wall cavities or attic space, this method is usually the best means of adding insulation to existing construction.

Types of Blown-In Insulation

Fiberglass and cellulose are the two most common types of blown-in insulation. If you have concerns that the installation process varies between these two types, fear not because the same installation process is welcome for each. 

What exactly is this installation process? First, our team of blown-in insulation experts uses a shredding and blowing machine outside of your home that forces the fiberglass or cellulose through a long flexible hose. From there, one of our technicians handles the hose, so the insulation applies correctly. Assuming your existing insulation is in good condition, fiberglass and cellulose can both be blown right over the top of it. 

Materials also used to create insulation include recycled newspaper, cardboard, and other wood-based materials. Blow-in cellulose uses boric acid and other substances that make it flame resistant and mold-resistant. 

The installation process for both fiberglass and cellulose blown-in insulation is quick and easy, which means that you and your family can get back to living in comfort in no time! The experts here at Fresh Air & Heat have years of experience installing blown-in insulation and will make sure that the process is as smooth as possible. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at any time!

The Advantages of This Service

If you are ready for blown-in insulation services, you have come to the right place! Our team of experts here at Fresh Air & Heat are available to make sure our service is of the highest quality possible. 

However, if you are still unsure, do not worry, because our team has compiled some of the best advantages that our service offers:

More Efficient

Loose-fill insulation can be put in just about any roof shape. As the fibers can be blown into tight corners, they can fill spaces that batt insulation covers. Since the finished installation doesn’t have seams, loose-fill insulation can provide better insulation by up to 22%. 

Easy to Install

Fast and easy installation is another benefit. Therefore, we can take care of blown-in insulation much more quickly than install other insulation types. Depending on your circumstance, two of our installers can do a house in a few hours. This involves one feeding material into a blowing machine in the truck and the other in the attic spreading the insulation from the other end of the hose. 

Good Investment

Adding loose-fill insulation to your attic is one of the fastest paybacks of any home improvement project. The amount of money you save on energy costs will add up quickly over the next couple of years. And the savings will continue to add up so that your investment pays for itself and even begins bringing a return on your investment.
