What Is Blown Insulation?
Blown insulation is typically loose-fill cellulose. However, it can also include loose-fill fiberglass or spray foam.
Blown fiberglass is suitable for use in attics and wall cavities. It’s resistant to mildew and fungus growth and is applied using a special blower. It creates an effective thermal barrier in the home.
Spray foam insulation is a polyurethane foam that creates a superior shield against the elements. It’s composed of isocyanate and polyol resin that, when dry, creates a solid thermal barrier. Like blown-in cellulose and blown fiberglass, it’s ideal for attics, crawl spaces, interior and exterior walls and odd-shaped cavities.

Where Should You Install Blown Insulation?
Blown insulation is versatile and can be installed in many places in your home or building. The most common areas to install blown insulation are in the attic and crawl spaces, between exterior walls and between interior floors.
The ease of installation and its long-lasting nature make this insulation one of Florida’s most popular choices.
Blown Insulation vs. Fiberglass Insulation
Blown insulation is loose-fill and is comprised of recycled materials, including fiberglass or cellulose. Conversely, fiberglass batts are composed of just fiberglass.
Blown insulation is more eco-friendly since it contains nearly 100% recycled materials. It’s also ideal for irregular areas and has a superior R-value ranging between 2.2 and 3.8 per inch.
Batt insulation is less expensive but typically has a lower R-value than blown-in cellulose insulation. It’s also difficult to install in odd-shaped areas. Because of the high humidity and frequent rains in Florida, it’s usually more susceptible to moisture damage.
