Serving contractors and homeowners, Eastern Contractor Services provides fast, expert installation of blown insulation for new construction and existing buildings throughout New Jersey, including Trenton, Dover, Bricktown and many cities in between.
What Is Blown-In Insulation?
One of the most popular types, blown-in insulation is installed with the aid of a machine that experienced insulation installers use to blow loose-fill insulation into various locations, such as walls and attics.
This type of insulation offers versatility and the ability to fill even the smallest cracks, allowing for enhanced thermal protection and noise insulation. It can provide these benefits without the labor-intensive installation of other types of insulation, such as fiberglass batts.
What Are the Benefits of Blown-In Insulation?
Blown-in insulation offers a variety of benefits for your home. Some of these include:
- Increased energy efficiency and savings on electric bills
- Prevention of mildew and mold growth, making for a healthier environment
- Extremely high R-values of up to R-70 without exceeding the weight limits of ½-inch drywall, making it effective where other insulation would be too heavy or not provide enough protection
- The ability to retain its R-value longer than other types of insulation
- Easy installation
Contact Eastern Contractor Services to benefit from blown-in insulation and start making your home more comfortable and energy-efficient.
Blown-In Insulation vs. Batt Insulation
Blown insulation is made of small pieces of insulation that are blown into a space, while batt insulation looks like a blanket that can be cut to fit the space it’s insulating.
Batt insulation is typically easier to install than blown or spray foam insulation but isn’t as efficient at sealing small spaces. Spray foam tends to be extremely efficient but is more costly than fiberglass and cellulose loose-fill insulation.
Ultimately, the type of insulation that will work best for your project depends on the location of the insulation, your goals and your budget.

FAQs About Blown-In Insulation
How long does blown-in insulation last?
Damaged, deteriorating insulation leads to bad IAQ (indoor air quality). If you have water damage or see signs of mold in insulated areas, it’s time to replace your insulation so your health won’t be compromised.
- Frozen pipes
- Higher heating/cooling bills
- Ice dams on roof/gutters
- Temperature fluctuations in rooms
- Water/moisture above ceilings, behind walls, under flooring
How much blown-in insulation do I need?
Heating and cooling account for about 42% of your utility bills. Without adequate insulation, your monthly bills will be higher.
Insulation benefits are measured in R-values. They usually range from 2.0 to 8.0 per inch. Higher R-values offer better protection. Blown-in insulation has a higher R-value, and its R-value tends to outlast other types of insulation.
Blown-in insulation weighs less, so it can be used in spaces where other types of insulation would be too heavy.
Is blown-in insulation messy?
Attempting a DIY blown-in insulation project can get very messy, especially if you’re dealing with insulation removal. It’s not unusual for homeowners to begin a DIY insulation project and throw in the towel less than halfway along.
Do-it-yourself homeowners are smart and savvy. But the best DIY homeowners know when to call a professional.
Where can blown-in insulation be used in the home?
The beauty of blown-in insulation is that it fills and seals tiny cracks, crevices and bends behind your walls. It fills spaces between wall studs and ceiling joists.
Blown-in insulation can be easily added to attics and walls. It also provides sound dampening, so street noise will be lessened.
