Installing Blown In Cellulose Installation - Bob Vila

Quick Tip: Installing Blown-In Cellulose Insulation

Many homeowners choose to contract a professional for this work, but if you want to save money and do it yourself, you ought to have little trouble installing blown-in cellulose insulation.

If you need to insulate your attic, blowing in cellulose insulation is an easy job you can do yourself by renting a blower. To install the insulation, blow the cellulose in up to the level of your floor joists. Cellulose is made from recycled newspapers and is treated with boron, a natural pest repellent and fire retardant. For best results, be sure to distribute the cellulose in an even layer. In an attic with two-by-six joists, you can achieve an insulating factor of R-19.
