What is Blow-In Insulation?

This type of loose-fill insulation may be made from a variety of materials, including recycled newspaper or cardboard, but the most popular is cellulose. The insulation is chemically treated to be flame-retardant and mold-resistant; it’s a thick, dense material that is small enough to fit in tight areas and cavities. As the name implies, cellulose is derived from cellular plant material and will likely be wood- or paper-based.

Advantages of Blown Attic Insulation

The advantages of using blown-in insulation include:

  • Blown-in cellulose insulation has an R-value of around 3.5 for every inch of thickness, which is comparable to fiberglass.
  • Loose-fill insulation will settle and fill in areas around plumbing and electrical components.
  • Blow-in insulation is the ideal solution for finished walls, as it does not require the removal of drywall.
  • The installation process is much faster than with fiberglass batts, which must be individually unwrapped and laid in a continuous pattern.

The Installation Process

Blow-in insulation is a term used to describe the installation method for various types of loose-fill insulation. To insulate behind finished walls, the contractor must drill holes into each cavity through either the exterior or interior walls. Holes are typically made approximately one foot from the ceiling and three feet up from the floor and must be large enough to accommodate the blower nozzle. Blown attic insulation is applied parallel to the joists; it may be used alone or to form an additional layer over top of fiberglass insulation in order to increase the home’s R-value. The installation process involves the following steps for both types of applications:

  1. The cellulose bales are fed into the hopper of the insulation blower, loosening and fluffing up the cellulose particles.
  2. The blower propels the insulation through long, flexible tubing and out the application nozzle.
  3. The cellulose is left to settle on its own in the wall cavities or attic floor with no added pressure.
