Blown-in insulation in San Antonio, TX
Blown-in insulation or loose-fill insulation can be made with several materials, including fiberglass, rock wool, and cellulose. It comes in a variety of forms, such as shreds, granules, and nodules. It is most commonly used in attics while fiberglass batt insulation is installed in wall cavities or vaulted ceilings. Blown insulation can help:
Reduce your utility bills and maximize the energy efficiency of your home or building.
Make your home or building more comfortable year round.
Reduce noises from outside and also from inside your home or building between different rooms and levels.
Improve the performance of your air conditioner and furnace.
Protect against air and moisture infiltration (and help eliminate mold growth).
Contribute to a healthier environment.
Fiberglass is a fast, low dust, non-settling insulation. This insulation is ideal for moisture control, effectively regulating the heat flow to the outside.

We do not recommend installing insulation as a DIY project. First, the equipment you need to put in the loose–fill fiberglass is costly, even to rent, and it can be difficult to use. Second, improper insulation may not do much for your energy bills. If you don’t put enough insulation into the attic, it might not be effective in keeping heat from building up in your home.
Finally, installing insulation on your own may be unsafe. If you don’t seal up the attic properly, you might worsen your indoor air quality. And going up into your attic comes with enough risk, as the attic may not be the most stable of locations.
