By being able to be installed quickly while still providing exceptional efficiency, blown insulation is a perfect choice for contractors who want a fast, affordable solution for insulating every area of their home, including the attic.
What Is Blown Insulation?
One of the most popular types of insulation, blown insulation is installed with the aid of a machine that experienced insulation installers use to blow loose-fill insulation into various locations, such as walls and attics.
This type of insulation offers versatility and the ability to fill even the smallest cracks to allow for enhanced thermal protection as well as noise insulation. It can provide these benefits without the labor-intensive installation of other types of insulation such as fiberglass batts.
Blow-in insulation is commonly made of fiberglass.
What Are the Benefits of Blown Insulation?
Blown (sometimes referred to as blow-in insulation) offers a variety of perks and benefits for your home. Some of these include:
- Increased energy efficiency and savings on electric bills
- The ability to resist mildew and mold growth, making for a healthier environment
- Extremely high R-values of up to R-70 can be achieved without exceeding the weight limits of ½” drywall, making it an effective option where other insulation would be too heavy or not provide enough protection
- The ability to retain its R-value longer than other types of insulation
- An easy installation method

Blown Insulation vs Batt Insulation vs Spray Insulation
Blown insulation is made of small pieces of insulation that are blown into a space, while batt insulation looks like a blanket that can be cut to fit the space it is insulating, and spray insulation is applied wet and then expands to fit its location.
Batt insulation is typically easier to install than blown or spray insulation, but is not as efficient at sealing small spaces. Spray foam tends to be extremely efficient, but is more costly than both fiberglass and cellulose loose-fill insulation.
Ultimately, the type of insulation that will work best for your project depends on the location of the insulation, your goals, and your budget.
