One of the best options for most retrofitted insulation jobs is blown insulation. Blown insulation is sometimes called blown-in insulation, but it is the same product. It is great for increasing attic insulation or filling in wall cavities without having to open the walls all the way up. Increasing your insulation level with blown insulation can dramatically increase your property’s energy efficiency.
There are two main types of blown insulation available:
- Fiberglass blown insulation: Generally, this type of blown insulation has a lower cost and longer lifespan. It offers an R-value of R2 per inch of insulation. Some fiberglass options are made with post-consumer glass containers, lowering the environmental impact of choosing this insulation.
- Cellulose blown insulation: This type of blown insulation has a high R-value of R3.5 per inch, but its lifespan is lower at 20-30 years. If you are looking for an eco-friendly option, this type of insulation is made from recycled newspapers and may be a great choice for you.
