Nick asks:

Hi, I am looking to set up some kind of learning opportunity for my firm to learn more about dense-packed cellulose best practices. We do a lot of commercial projects and are interested in this product knowing the low-carbon footprint compared to spray foam or xps. We are most interested in genuinely understanding the pros, cons, pitfalls, and proper detailing of the product. We are simply trying to seek out the facts and are not interested in a sales pitch. Would you be able to help us out?

Good morning,

I am a building maintenance teacher in southern WV. My students are going to exit my class in an area of a lot of old homes that do not currently have insulation in the walls. I know that blown in insulation can be an easy product for them to use in that space, but I don't have the most experience with blown in insulation. I have a couple homes I would use this product in myself. I would love to have an expert come in and give my students a presentation on cellulose insulation!

Thanks for your interest in cellulose insulation. There is info on our website about retrofitting walls with cellulose insulation I suggest you search You Tube to start your search as well. CIMA producer member GreenFiber has a few videos linked from their web site. There is also a rather old publication written by a friend of mine 50 years ago. The two-hole blow method Roger describes in this piece is rarely used anymore. Common practice is to install insulation through a fill tube, as you will see on our website and in the on line videos. I am looking into a possible scenario that would let you observe insulation installation operations. If it can be arranged it would require a drive to Southeast Ohio, if that is acceptable to you. I will keep you informed.
