Insulation is an important element in all homes and buildings. It helps keep the cool air in when it’s hot and prevents hot air from escaping when it’s cold. Besides helping keep your energy bills in check, insulation is essential for the comfort of your family, employees or customers.
When there are so many options to choose from, it can be difficult for a home or business owner to choose a type of insulation. Each has pros and cons, and different forms could be appropriate in different situations. Among all these choices, blown-in insulation is a type of fiberglass insulation suitable for commercial and residential projects.
Fiberglass is available in blown-in (sometimes referred to as blow-in) form and can be sprayed into many areas or crevices, including:
In new construction projects, blown-in insulation can also be used in an application called BIBs. BIBS (Blow-in Blanket System) installs insulation behind a special fabric to create a seamless blanket that fills voids in walls, including around any electrical protrusions.

What’s the difference between blown-in insulation and batt insulation?
Batt insulation comes in pre-cut panels and is one of the most common forms of insulation available. “Blown-in” refers to a method of installation — blown-in, or blow-in, insulation is installed with a special blowing device. Blown-in insulation comes in loose-fill form and is ideal for irregular and hard-to-reach areas.

Can cellulose insulation be blown in?
Yes. In existing structures, cellulose is often blown into the wall cavity through the wall sheathing. For new construction, cellulose is typically damp-sprayed or installed dry behind netting. Damp-sprayed cellulose is usually ready for wall covering within 24 hours. Cellulose can also be blown dry into netting installed over building cavities.
The best insulation usually has less to do with the type and more to do with the application. Proper insulation installation completely fills the cavity you’re insulating. Cut-rate contractors may leave voids or gaps in coverage that reduce your insulation’s performance.
Is blown-in insulation safe?
If you’re working in your attic, it’s important to take precautions to protect your eyes, skin, and lungs. Wear goggles to protect your eyes from insulation, not safety glasses, since safety glasses can let dust in. Wear gloves and a disposable dust mask, too. Fiberglass insulation is made with glass fibers that can irritate the skin.
