Blow in insulation is an ideal choice for insulating attics and hard-to-access areas. It helps maintain a comfortable indoor temperature, keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Adding extra blow in insulation to an older home has resulted in a temperature drop of over 5℃, as reported by our customers.
Improve your home’s comfort, increase R-value and reduce strain on your heating and cooling systems with attic insulation. Not only that, adding loose-fill insulation to your attic will help your shingles last longer! Canadian homes were not always energy-efficient, but new materials and technologies, such as blown cellulose or fiberglass insulation, have made a difference.

For many years, our team of skilled insulation professionals has been serving Saskatoon with exceptional insulation and installation services. Using top-of-the-line commercial-grade insulation-blowing equipment, we meticulously insulate every corner and crevice of our clients’ attics and roofs with loose-fill blown in insulation, providing reliable protection against the elements.
Fiberglass vs Cellulose Insulation
Fiberglass and cellulose insulation are two common types of blown-in insulation used in residential and commercial buildings. Fiberglass loose-fill insulation is made of glass fibres, while cellulose insulation is made of recycled paper products. Fiberglass loose-fill is fire-resistant, and does not retain moisture, making it a popular choice for many homeowners. Cellulose is more environmentally friendly than fiberglass and has better sound-deadening properties. Cellulose is usually treated to be fire-retardant and flame-resistant. We usually use cellulose insulation, but fiberglass can be used upon request.
Blown In vs Batt Insulation
Batt insulation is a well-established and recognizable form of insulation that is both easy to install and budget-friendly. However, blown fibreglass or cellulose insulation is necessary in some situations, especially for insulating tight spaces like the edges of an attic. Instead of choosing between batt insulation and blown insulation, you can use both to maximize the effectiveness of your insulation. Installing batts between the joists is a cost-effective method, but an additional layer of insulation is required to prevent heat transfer through the joists. Blowing in insulation is a better option in this scenario, as it ensures complete coverage without any gaps or missed spots.
Blown Insulation Plus Spray Foam
When it comes to insulating attics, spray foam and loose-fill insulation can be a great duo. By creating an air seal and a possible vapor barrier (depending on the extent of coverage), spray foam effectively seals gaps around the edges, roof-deck, and fixtures. Its ability to reach tight spaces makes it an ideal choice for this purpose. Once the spray foam is in place, blow-in insulation can be added to the attic floor to further increase the R-value of the home.
