Dense-packed Insulation featured image

Dense-packing insulation is a method of blowing insulation (typically cellulose) into tight, hard to reach spaces at a density of 3.5 lbs per cubic foot. Areas that it can be recommended for include floors, bay windows, cantilevers, walls and cathedral ceilings. During our , we’ll test and identify areas in your home that are most suitable for dense packed insulation, which our crews of weatherization technicians have been trained to install.

Benefits of Dense-packed Insulation

  • Uniform r-value – Blown insulation conforms perfectly to all imperfections & oddities in framing & cavities, reducing or eliminating gaps, compressions & voids that are inevitable with batts, giving it a uniform and overall higher r-value.
  • Air-sealing properties – Insulation blown at at least 3.5 lbs per cubic foot also acts as an air barrier, cutting down the air leakage in the house.
  • Provides Excellent Sound Control – All the gaps and voids in the walls and around the pipes are filled, improving the sound control provided by insulation compared to only using fiberglass batts.
  • Easy way to accessing hard to reach areas – Blowing insulation is an excellent alternative to removing siding or having to tear apart a wall from the inside in order to insulate it with batts.
