What is Blown-in Insulation?

blown-in insulation

Blown insulation, also known as loose-fill insulation, is a type of insulation that is applied by blowing small particles of insulative material into attics, wall cavities, or other areas needing insulation.

This method is particularly effective for filling irregular spaces and for adding insulation to existing finished areas to your Florida home.

How Do We Install Blown Insulation?

Step 1: Preparation

After you’ve called us at (833)-857-7283 and received your free quote we’ll get started,

Assess and Inspect:

  • Conduct a thorough inspection of the attic or area where the insulation is to be installed. Look for any signs of existing damage such as mold, water stains, or pest infestations. Address these issues before proceeding.
  • Measure the area to determine how much insulation is needed. This will help in purchasing the correct amount of material.

Step 2: Installing the Insulation

Blowing the Insulation:

  • Start at the farthest point from the attic hatch and work back towards the entrance to ensure an even application and avoid compressing the insulation as you move.
  • Use the hose to spread the insulation uniformly across the attic floor, paying special attention to fill corners and edges without leaving gaps. The goal is to create a level layer of insulation that covers the joists.
  • Be careful to maintain the recommended depth and density as specified by the insulation manufacturer to achieve the desired R-value, which is crucial in Florida’s climate.

Step 3: Clean-Up and Inspection

Final Checks:

  • Once the insulation is evenly applied, inspect the area to make sure there are no thin spots or areas where the insulation is too thick. Make adjustments as needed by adding or redistributing the insulation.
  • Check that all vents are not obstructed and that the baffles are securely in place.
  • Remove any debris or insulation materials that may have scattered during the installation.
  • Store any leftover materials properly for future use or dispose of them according to local regulations.

Yes, blown-in insulation can be added over existing insulation, provided the old insulation is still in good condition and free of moisture, mold, or pest infestation.

Blown-in insulation is installed using a machine that blows the insulative material through a hose directly into the attic space, filling the area between joists and around obstructions to achieve an even layer of insulation.

Safety precautions include wearing protective gear such as masks, goggles, and gloves to avoid inhaling fibers or dust. It’s also important to ensure proper ventilation during installation to avoid buildup of airborne particles.
