Factors to Consider When Choosing Insulation

With as many as seven (7) or eight (8) different types of home insulation from which to choose, it’s important to choose the type that will best suit your personal needs. That’s true whether you are looking for wall insulation, attic insulation, or roof insulation.

To make an educated choice, you should increase your awareness of the factors that warrant consideration during the decision-making process. Let’s take a look at three key factors.

About Red Rocks home insulation installers

Efficiency level

Each type of insulation is assigned an R-Value rating, the higher the better. The rating addresses an insulation’s ability to slow the transfer of heat.

Fire resistance

This factor refers to an insulation’s inclusion of fire retardants that will slow down or resist the spreading of fire in the home.

Noise reduction

There are some types of wall and roof insulations that will act better than others to reduce noise coming from outside and from room to room.

Benefits of Choosing Blown-In Insulation

Depending on your objectives, there are benefits you can derive by going with a blown-in insulation option. It’s simply a matter of prioritizing which factors you value the most. Here are some of the key benefits:

  • Cost-Effective – Of all your insulation options, this is the most affordable
  • East to install, which ensures lower installation costs
  • Reaches into those hard-to-reach nooks and crannies
  • Will have a positive impact on energy savings
  • Suitable for walls, attics, floors, and roofs

Types of Blown-In Insulation

As we have indicated , there are two general types of blown-in insulation. The first is made of tiny fiberglass chards and the second is made largely from recycled materials like rockwood shavings, recycled newspapers, cardboard, and office paper. Since these materials are flammable, the insulation has to be treated with fire retardants.


Fiberglass insulation is very energy efficient. When blown in with a machine, this type of insulation works well to fill hard-to-reach places in the attic.


Least expensive option. Cellulose is made from recycled materials that come from wood, newspapers, and cardboard with boric acid added as a fire retardant.

Affordability of Blown-In Insulation

On the pricing scale for all types of insulation, the cellulose compost option is generally considered the most affordable option. It’s also the most eco-friendly option because it makes good use of recycled paper products, saving lumber for something more important like home construction. If you are interested in our pricing, we encourage you to contact s at Red Rocks Insulation. We can give you an up-to-date estimate.

Saving Money With Blown-In Insulation

The two key reasons to insulate your home are temperature comfort in the home and energy efficiency. As far as blown-in insulation and energy efficiency, it might not be the best option, but it is a solid option. If properly installed, cellulose and fiberglass insulation will allow you to reduce the use of your HVAC system, particularly in the summer in warmer climates.

Frequently Asked Questions

What areas do you serve?

While our main office is located in Denver Colorado, we cover much of the Denver metro area, plus areas like Boulder and some of the surrounding cities.

Can you tell me about the process of installing blown-in insulation?

Yes. The materials are placed in a machine located outside or on our truck. We use a long hose to reach the areas in which the insulation is to be installed. Compression from the machine forces the loaded insulation through the hose to the insulation destination.

Can you tell me about the longevity of cellulose compost insulation?

Sure. Since cellulose is made mostly from organic materials, you can expect some decomposition over time. However, this type of insulation could last for well over 15 years, depending on the weather conditions in your area.

Can Cellulose/fiberglass insulation be used in conjunction with other types of insulation?

Absolutely. In fact, blown in insulation serves as a perfect filler to fill any gaps that might exist after batt rolls have been installed. It’s very common for homeowners to go with this combination when they are having attic insulation installed.
