Blown-in insulation or loose-fill insulation can be made with several materials, including fiberglass, rock wool, and cellulose. It comes in a variety of forms, such as shreds, granules, and nodules. Blown-in insulation is most commonly used in attics while fiberglass batt insulation is installed in wall cavities or vaulted ceilings. Using blown-in insulation in attics is cost-effective. It saves money and reduces energy costs. Around the Atlanta metro area, Arbor Insulation Solutions installs cellulose or fiberglass insulation.

When looking for a cost-effective, energy saving option for your home, take some time to consider blown-in insulation as the material to use. It is widely available, quick to install and can even be hypoallergenic for those who deal with bothersome allergies.
The ability of insulation to prevent heat from leaking in or out is described as its “R-value”. The higher the R-value, the better it insulates.
The R-value you will need depends on your climate zone (see map & chart below). Atlanta residents are in zone 3.
|Zone||Attic||Cathedral Ceiling||Wall Cavity||Wall Sheathing||Floor|
|1||R30 to R49||R15 to R22||R13 to R15||None||R13|
|2||R30 to R60||R22 to R38||R13 to R15||None||R13 to R25|
|3||R30 to R60||R22 to R38||R13 to R15||None to R5||R25|
|4||R38 to R60||R30 to R38||R13 to R15||R2.5 to R6||R25 to R30|
|5||R38 to R60||R30 to R60||R13 to R21||R2.5 to R6||R25 to R30|
