Cellulose Insulation: the ABCs of #greenbuilding materials

Cellulose Insulation: the ABCs of #greenbuilding materials

• Dry Blown Loose-Fill Cellulose — This method requires a two-person team, with one person feeding dry, loose-fill insulation into a blowing machine. The machine blows the cellulose through a long hose controlled at the point of application by the second person. The packaging will indicate the depth of insulation that should uniformly cover the area to achieve the desired R-Value.

It may even be rented for free when purchasing the insulation at the same location. Don’t forget dust masks and goggles, as blown-in cellulose can be dusty.
