What are the benefits of blown in insulation?
Blown in insulation can be used to fill areas where cavity insulation is not feasible - for example, loft spaces, desktops and inaccessible areas as part of a draught proofing measure. It also provides better thermal performance than batt insulations alone because the air cannot shift close to the surface of the skin next to outside walls.
Blown-in cellulose insulation consists mostly of recycled newspaper fiber that has been treated with boron for fire resistance. This means that it is environmentally friendly since fewer trees are being cut down for use in fibreglass insulation products. The final product is free from chemical additives or VOCs (volatile organic compounds) which make it safer for people with allergies or chronic respiratory illnesses like asthma.
Blown-in cellulose insulation provides better thermal performance than batt insulations alone because the air cannot shift close to the surface of the skin next to outside walls. This can help create a more comfortable home or office space by preventing cold drafts from entering through exterior wall studs, joists and flooring system. The blown-in material acts like an air pocket that helps maintain even temperatures throughout your interior spaces making it ideal for heated rooms (like kitchens and bathrooms). It also reduces noise coming in from outdoors since cellulose is denser than air
It's important to allow at least 2 feet of blown-in material between each cavity which will ensure proper heat retention for maximum energy savings. However, you should always make sure that you install blown-in cellulose insulation between studs, joists and rafters instead of over them. This will prevent the insulation from getting blown away due to air currents produced by heating/cooling systems
Blown-in cellulose insulation is sometimes confused with cellulose blown-in loose fill. A thin layer of blown in cellulose can be applied on top of an existing ceiling to add more insulation value. However, it is impossible for this material to settle correctly without being blown into place using special equipment.

How does blown in insulation work?
Blown in insulation is advantageous because the product moves far more efficiently through vents, pipes, scaffolding towers and other artificial barriers than bulk liquid insulation products.
Blow-in cellulose affects the performance of your HVAC system by insulating pipes and ducts, which can save on your energy costs. These savings are generally visible within 1-2 years of installation - especially if you have a forced-air heating system that doesn't reach all areas of your home or leaks around supply ductwork that create drafts inside the house. The same applies for cooling systems during summer months when house temperatures might get too high to cool adequately with just an air conditioner." ## blown in insulation
Blow-in insulation is an excellent option when looking for high performance insulation. It provides the best R-value per inch of any blown in product on the market, can be blown into any cavity or blown through vent ducts, and provides superior air control (it acts like a second skin). Our blown in insulation works harder than ever before to keep your home comfortable all year long
Our blowing process ensures that this cellulose insulation will stay put where you place it. That means no settling or shifting; just highly effective soundproofing, fire resistance, and improved energy efficiency. Blow-in cellulose is so effective because there are more than 2 million open air pockets within every cubic foot of blown cellulose insulation.
Blown in insulation is blown into the attic through a machine that almost resembles an air mattress or bellows. The insulation is blown into the home by this process until it reaches the desired level of R-value per inch for your project, and ensuring none of it escapes. This blown in insulation can be applied over any surface including rafters, trusses, wood subflooring, existing blown in insulation or even on top of radiant barrier. Once blown in to your home's attic space, our cellulose insulation starts doing its job right away.
