Questions About Attic Insulation?

A Bettr Roof For Less

Blown-in attic insulation, also known as loose-fill insulation, is a type of insulation that is literally "blown" or sprayed into the nooks and crannies of your attic using special equipment. It's an effective way to improve your home's thermal efficiency, as it can fill in and around all of the obstacles in your attic.  It is very fast to install while providing comprehensive coverage and excellent thermal properties.

Blown-in insulation is typically made from cellulose, fiberglass, or mineral wool. Cellulose is a green option, usually made from recycled newspaper that's been treated for fire resistance. Fiberglass and mineral wool are synthetic materials that also have good insulating properties.

Blown-in insulation can provide a more uniform and tighter fit than traditional batt or roll insulation, especially in attics with many obstructions like pipes, ducts, and wiring. It fills in small cracks and crevices, which can improve your home's energy efficiency.

The time to install blown-in insulation depends on the size of your attic and the prep work needed. However, a professional team can typically insulate an average-sized attic in less than a day.

Yes, when properly installed, blown-in insulation is safe. The materials used are treated for fire resistance. However, like all insulation, it should be kept away from direct contact with heat sources and any flammable materials.

The cost depends on several factors, including the size of your attic, the type of material you choose, and labor costs in your area. However, the energy savings over time can offset the upfront cost of installation.

*As per information shared by, the typical American expends approximately at least $2,000 each year on energy costs. Astonishingly, an estimated $200 to $400 of this amount could be unnecessarily lost due to factors such as drafts, air leakage around entrances and exits, as well as obsolete heating and cooling systems.

While it's possible for a handy homeowner to install blown-in insulation, it can be a challenging and messy job. Professionals have the right equipment and experience to do the job quickly, safely, and efficiently, ensuring the insulation is evenly distributed for maximum effectiveness.

Some signs that you may need more insulation include high energy bills, difficulty keeping your house at a comfortable temperature, ice dams on your roof in the winter, and cold floors in the winter or hot rooms in the summer.

If your home is older (20+ years) and the attic insulation has never been replaced to your knowledge then the attic insulation of today is much more efficient.

All types of insulation can settle over time, including blown-in insulation. However, professional installers take this into account when they install the insulation, ensuring that even with some settling, your attic has the recommended level of insulation.
