What Is Blown-In Insulation?
Blown-in insulation, or “loose-fill” insulation, is an insulation material that is installed by blowing loose insulation fibers into an area. It’s used to insulate attics, walls and other cavities and hollow areas in homes and buildings. Specialized equipment is required to blow the insulation evenly, efficiently, and with sufficient compaction when needed.
Benefits of Blown-In Insulation
Blown-in insulation conforms to the contours of the space it is installed in. This ensures that all gaps and voids are filled. People often refer to blown-in insulation as “blanket” insulation because when used in an attic, it blankets over all surfaces.
Blown-in insulation provides great thermal resistance. This helps to hold the controlled temperature below the attic, and reduce energy waste from radiant heat passing through the attic or other boundary.
The blowing process requires special equipment that blows insulation at a high rate. This makes it possible to complete quickly and at lower costs that some other forms of insulation.our visitors.
Blown-in insulation, especially with cellulose, helps to soften sound traveling between rooms and other living spaces.
Materials Used For Blown-In Insulation
Blown-In fiberglass is made of tiny glass fibers, often from recycled glass, that are spun into a wool-like material. The fibers are treated with a binding agent so that the fibers stick together.
Blown-in cellulose insulation is made from recycled newspaper or cardboard treated with fire-retardants. It is an especially eco-friendly solution.
