Blown-In Insulation

Blown-In Insulation Contractors in NY, NJ & PA

By being able to be installed quickly while still providing exceptional efficiency, blown insulation is a perfect choice for homeowners and contractors who want a fast, affordable solution for insulating every area of their home, including the attic.

What Is Blown-In Insulation?

One of the most popular types of insulation, 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 to allow for enhanced thermal protection as well as noise insulation. It can provide these benefits without the labor-intensive installation of other types of insulation, such as fiberglass batts.

Blown-in insulation is commonly made of cellulose or fiberglass.

What Are the Benefits of Blown-In Insulation?

Blown-in insulation offers a variety of perks and benefits for your home. Some of these include:

  • Increased energy efficiency and savings on electric bills
  • Resistance against mildew and mold growth, making for a more healthy environment
  • Extremely high R-values of up to R-70 without exceeding the weight limits of ½-inch drywall, making it an effective option 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
  • And much more!

Blown-In Insulation vs. Batt Insulation vs. Spray 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 is insulating, and spray insulation is applied wet and then expands to fit its location.

Batt insulation is typically easier to install than blown or spray insulation but is not as efficient at sealing small spaces. Spray foam tends to be extremely efficient but is more costly than both 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

Some of the frequently asked questions we receive about blown-in insulation are:

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.

Signs include:

  1. Frozen pipes
  2. Higher heating/cooling bills
  3. Ice dams on roof/gutters
  4. Insects
  5. Temperature fluctuations in rooms
  6. Water/moisture above ceilings, behind walls, under flooring

Blown-in cellulose insulation is made from recycled materials and should last 20 to 30 years. Fiberglass materials will last even longer because they don’t degrade.

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 not only has a higher R-value, but its R-value also 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?

If you attempt a DIY blown-in insulation project, it can get very messy indeed, 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 pollution protection, so street noise will be lessened.
