Blown-in insulation can also be called “blow-in,” “loose-fill,” or “blown” insulation. It doesn’t really matter what you call it. What you get is improved energy efficiency and greater comfort as a result.
The US Department of Energy notes that most attics aren’t adequately insulated. This includes even newly built homes (unfortunately some contractors cut corners). You should have attic insulation with an R-value of 30 or greater, but most homes have insulation with a R-value of 20 or less. That means there’s great room for energy efficiency and comfort enhancement in Greater Atlanta homes.

Blown-in insulation is a cost-effective option
Many homes have too little insulation and too many air leaks. As a result, they waste a lot of energy. It’s a reason why our home comfort experts recommend you have your home air-sealed at the same time you add insulation. When both are done at the same time, you can save up to 40% on your energy bills. You start seeing the savings immediately, and they pay for the fixes fast, when many repairs take years to pay for themselves.
Many homeowners are surprised at the affordability of air-sealing and installing insulation.
Fiberglass and cellulose are the two most common types of blown-in insulation
Contractors vary on their approaches with blown-in insulation. Some use fiberglass, while others install cellulose. Still others can do both and choose the best one as the situation dictates.
The same method to install both is used. A shredding and blowing machine outside of your home forces the fiberglass or cellulose through a long flexible hose. Our technician guides the hose so the insulation gets applied correctly. Assuming your existing insulation is in good condition, fiberglass and cellulose can both be blown right over the top of it.
Another benefit of blown-in insulation is that there’s no maintenance needed. When you install blown-in insulation in your home, that’s all that needs to be done.
Cellulose insulation may be blown directly over existing attic fiberglass insulation.
