As the name suggests, blown-in insulation is blown into the wall cavities. It also makes great attic insulation. It has a higher R-value than it’s batt counterparts. Due to the fluffy nature of the material there is more air trapped into the material of the insulation which prevents heat transfer.

Reasons To Remove Old Insulation
Blown-in insulation could be made of wood, cotton, cellulose, or fiberglass. A hose and a pump are attached to a container of the insulating material that is quite literally blown into place. This type of insulation installation needs professionals for installation. That is why you have some of the best in the industry. We are experts in blown insulation. We have been installing blown insulation for commercial and residential properties for more than 30 years now.
Blown-in insulation is suitable for attic areas with nooks and crannies that, due to their size and form, are difficult to insulate with fibreglass batting. Because it is manufactured from recycled materials, cellulose blown-in insulation is the most cost-effective solution. Blown-in insulation, once placed, may last for up to 25 years while delivering dependable performance.
Blown-in insulation benefits
Blown insulation is faster and much easier to install than other insulations. As compared to batted insulation that requires cutting, trimming, nailing and putting it in the exsact spot for it to fit, blown insulation is much easier. The insulation material is simply blown in with the help of a hose.
Better Energy Efficiency
Since it is loose, it can fill in all the cracks that prevents air from escaping. You could also increase and decrease the thickness of the insulation easily without spending a lot increasing the overall R-value of the insulation.
Blown insulation usually has wool, or cellulose which can be recycled. These materials are washed and reused, decreasing the carbon footprint. The recycled material doesn’t change the quality of the insulation while being environmentally friendly.
Good Noise Reduction
As compared to other types of insulation, blown insulation has the best noise reduction capability. It prevents noises from outside coming in and also prevents noises from travelling from one room to another.
Coverage that is comprehensive and in-depth
Blown insulation, when professionally put in place, provides adequate coverage in an attic, blanketing all wooden cross beams, plumbing lines, electrical wires, and even television cables.
Long Term Benefits
Blown insulation improves energy efficiency throughout the building, including improved heating and cooling cycles, as well as improved HVAC performance, in a typical residential installation.
The R-value Of Blown-In Insulation
Thermal resistance is measured by the R-value. Basically, the greater the R-value of the insulation, the more successful it is in preventing the transmission of heat and cold air. Loose-fill insulation has an R-value of 2.2 to 2.7 per inch of thickness. Batten insulation, on the other hand, has an R-value ranging from 2.9 to 3.8.
Batten looks to outperform blown-in in terms of R-value. Loose-fill fibres, on the other hand, may be put at any thickness. This means that the R-value of blown-in insulation can match, if not exceed, that of rolled insulation.
Fiberglass Blown-in Insulation
Fiberglass is a budget friendly option for your attic and walls. It is a non flammable, energy efficient, mold resistant, eco friendly option. Fiberglass is one of the most popular choices for blown-in insulation. You could choose the level of thickness and multiply the R-value. Blown fibreglass insulation is also excellent at keeping noise from penetrating or travelling throughout your home, thanks to its greater airtight seal. Blown fibreglass insulation is extremely effective at preventing sound transfer in a home when compared to other types of insulation. Blown fibreglass insulation is also a suitable choice for allergy sufferers because it has no chemicals or additives that could irritate a person’s allergies.
Cellulose Blown-in Insulation
Blown cellulose fills cracks and crevices with ease, creating a smooth barrier. Fires, mold, and insects are less likely to occur in cellulose insulation. Boric acid is used to treat cellulose, which acts to resist pests and hazards. In the long run, the R-value of cellulose is lower than that of other insulations. It contains an acrylic binder that ensures that it settles properly after installation. Recycled resources such as old newspapers are used to make cellulose. It helps to reduce the massive mounds of newspaper that are thrown away every day. This aids in the reduction of our carbon footprint.
Frequently Asked Questions
IS INSULATION BLOWN IN MESSY?
When it comes to DIY blown-in insulation projects, it can get pretty dirty, especially when it comes to insulation removal. It’s not uncommon for homeowners to start a DIY insulation project and abandon it less than halfway through.
WHERE IN THE HOME CAN BLOWN-IN INSULATION BE USED?
The benefits of blown-in insulation include the ability to fill and seal microscopic gaps, fissures, and bends behind your walls. It is used to fill gaps between wall studs and ceiling joists. Blown-in insulation is simple to install in attics and walls. It also protects against noise pollution, so street noise is reduced.
HOW LONG IS BLOWN-IN INSULATION GOOD FOR?
Poor indoor air quality is caused by damaged or decaying insulation (indoor air quality). If you have water damage or detect mould in insulated areas, it is necessary to repair your insulation so that your health is not jeopardised. Blown-in cellulose insulation is constructed of recyclable materials and is expected to last 20 to 30 years. Because fibreglass does not decay, it will endure much longer.
Why Hire Professionals
When it comes to addressing crucial tasks such as getting proper insulation installed. Insulation contractors specialise in one thing: insulation. Don’t employ a home improvement professional to do your insulation since you wouldn’t hire a roofer to handle your plumbing.
