Blow in Insulation Services
Blow-in insulation, also known as loose-fill insulation, is a type of insulation made of small particles of materials such as fiberglass, cellulose, or mineral wool. These particles are blown into the spaces between walls, floors, and ceilings, creating a layer of thermal insulation.
Blow-in insulation is commonly used in attics, walls, and floors of both residential and commercial buildings. It can be used in both new construction as well as retrofits. Some of the benefits of blow-in insulation include energy efficiency, consistent coverage, noise reduction, and sustainability. It is also cost-effective and can help reduce heating and cooling costs.
What is Blow-In Insulation Used For?
Like Foam and Batt insulation, Blow-in may be used for both residential properties. They can be applied to:
- Walls that are enclosed from the outside or opening new wall cavities
- Existing constructed areas which include attic space and tile floors
- Hard to reach areas

What is The R-Value For Blow In Insulation?
R-value is determined by a grading system used to check the Insulation’s effectiveness. The higher the R-Value, the more insulated the material is. Depending on the location of the blow-in insulation, it could require a different layer of material. Below are the two R values for Blow-in Fiberglass and Cellulose:
- fiberglass: R-value of 2.2 to 2.7 per inch.
- Cellulose: R-value of 3.1 – 3.8 per inch
- Stone Wool: R-value of 2.2-3.3 per inch
R values can be affected by climate, type of material and section of building. floors, Walls, and attics will all use different values.
