When it comes to improving your home's insulation, you have several options. Blown-in insulation is as simple as home insulation. However, it has limitations and is not ideal for every location or home.
When installing blown-in insulation in a closed frame, a higher density of insulation can be achieved than is possible with an attic.

When you choose blown insulation, you will feel the following benefits:
Blown insulation is more effective
One of the advantages of blown insulation over types such as fiberglass plaster is that blown insulation is more effective. Since bulk insulation is a monolithic layer of seamless insulation, as found in battens, research shows that bulk insulation performs 22% better than battens with the same R-value.
Blown insulation is easy to install
Another advantage of blown insulation is that it is very easy to install. It's also very fast. A professional can deal with blown insulation much faster than installing other types of insulation.
Typically, two builders can build a house in a matter of hours – one feeds the material into the truck's blow molding machine and the other into the attic and spreads the insulation from the other end of the hose.
Blown insulation is a good investment
Adding loose insulation to your ceiling is one of the quickest returns on any home improvement project. The money you save on energy bills will pile up quickly over the next few years, paying more than you paid for yourself, and even bringing a return on your investment.
