We use blown-in fiberglass insulation in all exterior walls to achieve an R-24 thermal rating (standard is R-19). We use blown-in insulation in our ceilings to achieve a true R-60 thermal rating. Blown-in fiberglass has many advantages: It is resilient, non-flammable, non-settling, eco-friendly (60% recycled glass & sand), non-absorbent, pest-resistant, and time-tested. And let’s not forget that blown-in fiber fills ALL voids & gaps, creating a tighter seal and allowing a higher R-value per inch than standard insulation.
