Blown-In Cellulose Insulation Services for Greater Atlanta Area Homeowners
A possible alternative to fiberglass
Cellulose insulation creates a tight thermal barrier so your home gets great energy efficiency and comfort. Fiberglass batts, on the other hand, often leave pockets or voids because they don’t fit spaces tightly. They’re also routinely installed improperly. That harms your energy efficiency and comfort.
Why choose cellulose insulation? 4 reasons:

Cellulose insulation helps your home resist fire, insects, and mold
Our cellulose insulation has added chemicals that prevent pest infestation. And because of the liquid fire retardants injected into the cellular fibers, it also provides high resistance to fire. It also limits the amount of oxygen, which is highly flammable. Borate solution is also used to provide fire resistance, and that also helps cellulose resist mold.
Cellulose insulation can be installed in your home in several ways
In your attic, you’ll most likely get cellulose insulation blown-in. One of our experienced insulation specialists feeds cellulose into a hopper and blower unit. This machine then shreds the insulation, and another one of our specialists guides the hose that blows in the cellulose.
Your home may also need cellulose wet-sprayed. Water, and sometimes a liquid adhesive or binding compound, are added to the cellulose as it gets blown in. The water activates glue in the cellulose so it sticks to the inside of your wall.
Cellulose Sounds Great, But Loose-Fill Fiberglass Works Even Better
Some customers come to use having done their homework. They believe dense-packed cellulose insulation is the best choice.
It’s a good choice, but not the best here in Georgia. First, it creates a lot of dust that circulates throughout your home because it’s made from newspaper. This can trigger allergies and asthma attacks. Second, it doesn’t handle our high Georgia humidity nearly as well as loose-fill insulation. It loves to soak moisture. When it does, that greatly reduces its ability to insulate. That can also lead to mold problems.
Loose-fill fiberglass doesn’t retain nearly as much moisture. So, it continues to insulate your home much longer and more effectively than cellulose. That means less likelihood of mold problems too. And it doesn’t create conditions that lead to allergies and asthma attacks in your home. In most cases, we’ll recommend you install loose-fill fiberglass.
