Blown In Insulation

If you need to get your attic, walls, or floor insulated thermally then there are several options available to you.  This is why so many people recommend blown-in insulation, material directly blown or sprayed into the walls, attic, or floor. The advantage of blown in insulation is that it will cover every section needing insulation and will fill in every gap.  It is also readily affordable at competing prices and is generally easy to install.

There are two types of materials used for blown in insulation: fiberglass and cellulose.  Fiberglass is composed of recycled glass that is spun into fibers.  It is filled in loosely by blowing machine and is especially suitable for damp places such as attics and wall cavities.  This is because fiberglass can be used to counteract mildew, fungi, or moisture.  The main problem with using fiberglass insulation however would be that sometimes particles can be left behind in the air.  This can be counteracted by netting the area to be insulated beforehand.

The other type of material most commonly used in blown in insulation is cellulose.  Cellulose is one of the oldest forms of insulation used having been in use since around the 1920s.  It is mostly composed of recycled newspaper, though cardboard can also be used, that has been treated with fire retardant.  Cellulose is a bit more versatile than fiberglass in that it can be used in a loose-fill form, in a stabilized form, or can be a wall-cavity spray—fiberglass can only be used as loose-fill.  Loose-fill cellulose is a dry install that can be used for walls or attics.  Stabilized cellulose has added moisture and adhesives making it good for horizontal installs such as attics.  Wall-cavity spray on the other hand is used for vertical installs having a moisture adhesive, usually up to ten percent, that makes it stick to vertical surfaces.

Blown in insulation is certainly easy to install but the type should be chosen carefully depending on the situation present.  Keep in mind that different types of blown in insulation provides different advantages or disadvantages over others.
