Blown-In Attic Insulation:
Are you sick of rampant heating and cooling loss in your home? Do you want to lower your energy bill and save money every month? There’s a better way to create lasting comfort in your home, and at Rock and Tait, we’ll help you create an insulation plan, including blown-in attic insulation, that can lead to thousands of dollars in savings.
If you’re experiencing heating and cooling loss in your house or your energy bill is astronomical, your attic may be to blame. Blown-in attic insulation protects against air leaks and is perfect for Eau Claire, WI homes, with the extreme weather conditions we face. Whether you want to keep the heat in during the winter or keep the heat out during the summer, blown-in attic insulation is a great choice.
When installing blown-in attic insulation, we use Weather Blanket cellulose. This blown-in attic insulation material is highly effective and environmentally-friendly. Cellulose is made from waste paper that would otherwise end up in a landfill. It also takes less energy to make than other insulation materials such as fiberglass insulation.
Because the blown-in attic insulation cellulose we use is small, it’s able to get into the tiny cracks and crevices of your attic, effectively protecting against all possible air leaks. The material also protects against vermin, and is moisture resistant, preventing mold, rotting, and odor.
Keep your home comfortable year-round, and avoid costly energy bills with blown-in attic insulation. Start here with our Home Performance Test, and learn how you can achieve thousands of dollars in savings.

Cellulose vs. Fiberglass
Are you wondering what is the best material for blown-in insulation?
Cellulose has a higher density than fiberglass, making it the better insulator.
It’s recycled paper saturated with fire retardant , which cannot be started on fire even with a propane torch, and does not absorb moisture like one may think. It also guards against insects and vermin.
Cellulose, when installed properly, literally creates an extremely dense barrier and it’s surface will crust over time preventing unwanted convection and air infiltration.
