Blown-in insulation is also referred to as "blow-in" or "blown" insulation. It doesn't really matter which term you use. What DOES matter is the improved energy performance that blown insulation makes possible.

Heat movement and conditioned air leakage is virtually unimpeded across a poorly insulated and poorly air-sealed home.
The combination of too little insulation and too much air leakage can waste a great deal of energy. That's why home performance experts recommend that air-sealing improvements be combined with insulation upgrades.
When air sealing is combined with an insulation upgrade, it's possible to reduce heating and cooling costs by as much as 40 percent. Wouldn't you be interested in cutting your "comfort" costs nearly in half?
Some insulation contractors install blown fiberglass insulation, some install cellulose and some can install both types of blown insulation. Blown fiberglass and blown cellulose are both "fluffy" insulation materials with similar R-values.
The installation method for blown fiberglass and blown cellulose is identical. A shredding and blowing machine located outside the house forces the blown insulation through a long, flexible hose that extends into the wall cavity, where a technician directs the flow.
Blown fiberglass and blown cellulose insulation can be installed directly over existing insulation, providing that this older insulation is in good condition.
If you haven't yet made this energy-saving investment, it's definitely worth doing. Once it's complete, there's no maintenance to worry about. An insulation upgrade is a once-and-done improvement you'll enjoy for as long as you own your house.
