Where Is Blown-In Insulation Used?
Available in fiberglass and cellulose varieties, blown-in insulation is made from loose fibers blown into place by a specialized machine. Blown-in insulation is commonly used in attics to insulate the floor or add more insulation if some is already present. It is also used to retrofit existing homes that lack proper amounts of insulation in the walls, as it can be installed through a small opening between each pair of studs with minimal remodeling.
Blown-in fiberglass is made from spun glass fibers that offer good thermal performance at an R-value of up to R-3.2 per inch of installed thickness. Blown-in cellulose is made primarily from recycled newspaper that has been treated to resist fire, pests, and mold. It offers a slightly higher R-value of up to R-3.8 per inch.
Both are great ways to add insulation to a home that has less than the recommended levels of R-49 to R-60 in the attic or R-13 to R-21 in the walls, as per the U.S. Department of Energy guidelines for the Palm Beach area.

Signs Your Home Needs New Insulation
It can be hard to determine how much insulation your home has or its condition if it is sealed behind finished walls or floors. If you notice any of the following indicators, your home could likely benefit from new insulation:
- It is difficult to keep your home comfortable
- Your heating and cooling costs are higher than similar homes
- You notice drafts in the winter or uneven temperatures
- Your home has air quality issues, excessive dust, or high humidity
- The HVAC system runs almost constantly
Adding the proper amount of insulation will reduce the load on your HVAC system and help it run more efficiently. Not only can this save you money on your utility bills, but it can also dramatically improve your comfort. At Hopkins Air Conditioning, we offer blown-in insulation services throughout the Palm Beach area with fast, professional installations.
