Blown-In Cellulose Insulation is loose fill insulation which is blown or sprayed into walls, attic and floors by an installer using a large hose. A large machine outside churns the bails of cellulose and uses air to blow them through the hose.
Blown-in cellulose insulation consists of recovered or recycled newsprint, cardboard, office paper and is treated with a fire retardant. The R-value of cellulose Insulation ranges from R- 3-4 per inch.
Loose fill cellulose Insulation is the best choice for any type of remodel in attics with open joists containing wiring, piping, venting, etc. Cellulose Insulation will fit better and more completely in the areas around any obstacles and hard to reach areas. Cellulose is also fire and rodent retardant.
Dense packed cellulose insulation in the exterior walls of your home is a great option for homes with no insulation in the walls or new construction. On a existing home we cut holes in the drywall on the interior, dense pack, reinsert drywall plug, secure with screws into a backer and install drywall mud over the patch.
Blown-in cellulose insulation is a product that is recommended to be done by a professional as it requires special machinery to install and is not recommended to be done by the Do-It-Yourself-er’.
