Blown-in Insulation in Fox Valley Area
Blown-in insulation is also referred to as “blow-in” or “blown” insulation. This is because the insulation is actually “blown into” empty spaces or on top of the old insulation that you are looking to improve. Small, discrete holes can also be cut into walls to fill the cavities within. Once the insulation has been installed, any holes can be sealed and covered up. This is a fast and easy way to improve the energy performance of your home. This breakthrough in home science from blown insulation is possible in any unfinished attic.
According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, most attics aren’t adequately insulated. A typical home is likely to have less than R0 attic insulation. But throughout most northern states, the DOE recommends that attics in be insulated to R-49 or more.

Blown insulation is cost-effective
Heat movement and conditioned air leakage is virtually unimpeded across a poorly insulated and poorly air-sealed attic floor.
The combination of too little insulation and too much air leakage can waste a great deal of energy. That’s why home performance experts recommend that air-sealing improvements be combined with insulation upgrades.
When attic air sealing is combined with an attic insulation upgrade, it’s possible to reduce heating and cooling costs by as much as 40 percent. Wouldn’t you be interested in cutting your “comfort” costs nearly in half?
If you have an unfinished attic, you’ll be surprised at how affordable it is to seal air leaks between your living space and the attic and upgrade attic insulation by having blown insulation installed. Both energy-saving upgrades can usually be completed in a single day.
Fiberglass and cellulose are blown insulation materials
Cellulose insulation is ideal for blowing into walls, too.
Some insulation contractors install blown fiberglass insulation, some install cellulose and some can install both types of blown insulation. Blown fiberglass and blown cellulose are both “fluffy” insulation materials with similar R-values.
The installation method for blown fiberglass and blown cellulose is identical. A shredding and blowing machine located outside the house forces the blown insulation through a long, flexible hose that extends into the attic, where a technician directs the flow.
Blown fiberglass and blown cellulose insulation can be installed directly over existing attic insulation, providing that this older insulation is in good condition.
If you haven’t yet made this energy-saving investment, it’s definitely worth doing. Once it’s complete, there’s no maintenance to worry about. An insulation upgrade is a once-and-done improvement you’ll enjoy for as long as you own your house.
