What Is Blow-In Cellulose Insulation?

Blown cellulose insulation is made from shredded recycled paper, which is treated with a non-toxic fire retardant. It's installed using specialized equipment that blows the material through a hose into attics, walls, and other cavities in your home, creating a seamless layer of thermal protection. This method ensures there are no gaps or voids, providing maximum energy efficiency and preventing air leaks.

To ensure an even and consistent application, special blowing equipment is used to distribute the cellulose insulation evenly throughout the cavity, whether that's into a wall, attic, or crawlspace, achieving the ideal thickness. iFOAM follows an installation process that ensures minimal disruption to your home and a clean and professional job.

Why Cellulose Insulation is a Smart Choice

While there are various blow-in insulation materials available, the most popular being fiberglass, cellulose insulation continues to be the superior choice for homeowners looking for a cost-effective, sustainable, and energy-efficient option. 

Here's why homeowners choose cellulose over other insulation materials:

  • Cost-Effective Solution: Cellulose insulation provides homeowners with a budget-friendly way to insulate their homes effectively without breaking the bank. 
  • Higher Heat Flow Resistance: Cellulose boasts a higher heat flow resistance compared to fiberglass, ensuring better temperature regulation within homes.
  • Impressive R-Value: With an R-value ranging from 3.2 to 3.8 per inch, cellulose insulation ensures a high level of thermal resistance, optimizing energy conservation.
  • Eco-Friendly Option: Often made from recycled materials, cellulose insulation aligns with sustainable practices, reducing waste and lessening your environmental impact.
  • Consistent Performance: Cellulose insulation is designed for longevity, providing consistent thermal protection and energy efficiency for many years, ensuring homeowners get great value for their investment.

Have Questions About Blown-in Insulation? We Have Answers!

How long does blown-in cellulose insulation last?

When properly installed, blown-in cellulose insulation typically lasts 20 to 30 years. Occasional inspections can help ensure its longevity. We recommend having it checked 15 years after it’s been installed.

What happens if cellulose insulation gets wet?

Wet cellulose insulation can lead to several issues.

  • First, it may lose its insulating properties as water reduces its ability to trap air effectively. 
  • Second, it can promote the growth of mold and mildew on adjacent surfaces. Mold and mildew can lead to potential health hazards and structural damage. 
  • Finally, wet cellulose insulation can become heavier and compacted. Compacted cellulose settles unevenly and loses effectiveness. 

What should I do if my cellulose insulation is wet?

Taking immediate action to prevent further damage is essential. Depending on how severe the wet the area is, you might need to contact a restoration company. 

Here is a general step-by-step list of what you can do if your cellulose insulation is wet:

  • Identify the water source and stop the leak.
  • Discard completely soaked cellulose insulation.
  • Remove the water and dry the area.
  • Contact a blown-in cellulose insulation contractor for a professional inspection.
