Product Overview

Choosing The Right Insulation

Faced Insulation

Faced

Face insulation uses kraft paper vapor barrier to control moisture transmission between 
walls and floors 

*Check your local building code for requirements
Unfaced Insulation

Unfaced

Unfaced insulation does not have a vapor barrier; used over existing insulation in the attic, or where moisture control is not needed

Rolls Insulation

Rolls

Continuous rolls are easy to transport and can be cut to length; great for large areas

Batts Insulation

Batts

Come in pre-cut lengths for faster installation and each package contains more square feet than rolls; ideal for framed cavities

The attic is one of the easiest places to add insulation to improve the comfort and energy efficiency of your home. AttiCat Expanding Blown-In Insulation is designed for your attic insulation project in new or existing homes. The specially designed AttiCat machine conditions the insulation by adding millions of tiny air pockets that give the material its insulating power and energy-saving R-value over time. Blowing the insulation should take less than 1.5 hours and the whole job can be completed in less than 4 hours based on a 1,000 sq. ft. attic at R-30.

  • 1-bag coverage: R19 = 109.5 sq. ft. / R30 = 68.5 sq. ft. / R49 = 39.5 sq. ft.
  • AttiCat insulation maintains R-value over time and provides temperature and sound control
  • Self-feeding system provides complete coverage, even around pipes, wires and outlets
  • No mess, the insulation releases and expands completely inside machine
  • Minimum 50% certified total recycled content
  • Provides easy clean-up because machine does the work for you

will the machine that blows the insulation in also suck out the insulation?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. All fans that blow on one side, will suck in on the other side.

Since the product R-Value is measured by height where can I find Insulation Depth Markers?

I cannot find these on the Home Depot website. They seem critical for applying the product correctly.
Asked by: Todd
Usually they are hanging in the isle next to the insulation. They are free. I put painter's tape around verticals to mark the height. It is much easier to read when blowing insulation than a scale. R3 per inch, so 20" up for R60.

Will the machine fit into a Expedition if broken down?

Asked by: Elijah426
Probably so... but why would you want to put it in a broken down Expedition? Shouldn't you get it fixed first?

AttiCat Fiberglass Expanding Blown-in Insulation System is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 208.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy as 1-2-3 I worked the machine and my son worked the spray. Watched video which is helpful and set it up in a few minutes. Took much less than we thought but sprayed in about 15" Some suggestions: Clean the bag slitting blade each time to get a clean cut on plastic, pull the plastic off from top and push insulation stack into machine at bottom, have a signal to stop machine like shaking hose since you will not be able to hear each other. Most units not equipped with a remote. Took us just a couple of hours to spray attic over 1200sf of bedrooms and 600sf garage. Set up and all. Great service at store in Temple Texas.

The work to blow the insulation in in our attic with a 4 &12 pitch to the roof was a bit of a challenge getting about but the ability to blow the insulation 10-15 feet out made getting the product under the low sections of the rafters a breeze. I blew in 30 bales and have between R44 and R49 in our attic for less than $1K. The machine does a pretty good job of delivery. Some people stated it was very clean. Well, you have to be pretty careful to not have some mess. The nice thing about this product is that it does not itch like insulation I have dealt with 25 years ago. The job of stuffing the product in the machine is a bit of work as the removal of the outer bag does require some exercise. My son and I worked on our attic from 8 a.m. till about 7:30 p.m. on a Sunday to get the job done. With an attic that is easier to get about in it would be faster. At any rate it is NOT hard to do and will pay for itself in the first year. I am good with that.

I expected an itchy mess but my son and I were surprised how easy it was to install using the free machine. We installed 40 bales in one day last month. His 1930's house had very little insulation and we noticed it was slightly quieter, though not quite as much noise reduction when we had 27 double-pane windows installed last year. The heater is cycling on much less frequently so we're expecting lower heating bills this winter.

This insulation is 5 star and making a huge difference in my attic, keeping the cold temperature out. But I want to make it clear: when you get the machine make sure all the parts are there. We were missing the screw connection and a section of hose. The hose we did get needed to be taped together. Check the check list on the machine. It took three trips to Home Depot to get this resolved. Katy in Soquel was the only person who pushed to borrow a part from another HD. She kept me from screaming at the top of my voice about the lack of customer service.

The insulation is great but installation is completely dependent on properly functioning Atticat equipment. I had 40 bags delivered by Home Depot. Went thru 2 different malfunctioning blowers to get job done. Owens Corning confirmed that internal inverter was overloading due to bad motors on both.

Great product and the blower to install this material worked great even without the remote. (Free from the rental department on over twenty bags) No allergy problems if you take the necessary safety steps. We added to our existing attic insulation to take the R value to 60
