Blowing Fiberglass Insulation

Less dusty than cellulose, blown-in fiberglass increases R-value and installs quickly

Watch Fine Homebuilding contributing editor Mike Guertin increase the R-value in an attic from R-15 to R-40 with blown-in fiberglass insulation. Mike uses Owens Corning's AttiCat system to add approximately 9 in. of insulation between the attic ceiling joists. This short video includes tips on everything from safety gear to achieving an even distribution of fiberglass throughout the space.

To learn how Mike further sealed his attic, read Attic Insulation Upgrade in Fine Homebuilding issue #200 (December 2008/January 2009), pp. 68-73.
