Blown-in Cellulose Insulation:
Lower your energy bill and save money with blown-in insulation.
We install Weather Blanket cellulose blown-in insulation because it is a great insulation product, yet friendly to the environment.
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.
Blown-in insulation can reduce heating and cooling losses, meaning a lower energy bill and a more comfortable home for your family. And because the material we use is small, it’s able to get into the tiny cracks and crevices of your attic, effectively protecting against air leaks. The material is moisture resistant, preventing mold, rotting, and odor. It also protects against vermin.
Blown-in insulation is perfect for the different extreme weather conditions we face in Eau Claire, WI. Whether you want to keep the heat in during the winter or keep the heat out during the summer, blown-in insulation is a great choice.
After a Home Performance Test and a complete air seal, we recommend attic insulation be installed exceeding R62 (R is a way of measuring heat transfer for insulation).

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.
