Blown in fiberglass insulation

Blown in fiberglass insulation

Blown-in fiberglass insulation is a compound that must 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’. With blown-in fiberglass insulation it is less likely to find moisture seeping in and about no chance rodents can find their way through it.

While blown-in fiberglass insulation is more expensive normally, it can be installed more quickly and efficiently than ‘batt and roll’ insulation which requires wall removal rather than a hole needing only to be patched. So taking into consideration the scope of the whole project, it may be relatively equal in terms of cost.

Fiberglass loose fill insulation is made of plastic reinforced by tiny glass fibers and is used in areas that will remain undisturbed, so that the material is not breathed in. R-values range from 3-4 per inch range.

Blown-in fiberglass as an insulator slows the spread of heat, cold and sound in structures, by trapping pockets of air, according to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors.
