Questions & Answers

how many cubic feet in each bag?

Asked by: mary
19 lbs ÷1.4 lbs per cubic foot=13.5 cubic feet per bag. But with cellulose you sgould factor gravity over time will cause some compacting, though the thermal resistance does not reduce at the same rate as volume because the mass is not reduced at the same rate. So to sum up 13.5 cubic feet per bag roughly after being blown in.

can I put this in without using the machine?

I have an old attic with (I think) loose rockwool insulation. I have a floor in my attic so I have to remove each board (and vacuum dirt!) before topping off existing insulation. Then I have to move the boxes etc that I have to the finished areas, so this will take several days. I do not think that I can keep the blower machine that long and I would prefer to minimize dust, so I am hoping that I can fluff up this insulation by hand and do the project as I am able.
Asked by: jackie
I used a Worx brand 120volt electric leaf blower, 20+ feet of large diameter shop vac hose and a special vac hose to 1 inch adapter I think I purchased direct from Green Fiber. I drilled holes through 2 layers of 1 inch boards on the exterior using a 1 inch speed bore bit. I went through several bits. I drilled holes every 3 to 4 ft starting at the bottom in each cavity. Jambed the one inch nozzle in the bottom hole, blew the insulation in until it started blowing out the top holes. Then I moved up to the next higher hole and blew it in until it came out the top hole and then finally, I blew it in the top hole. I then sealed the fill holes with canned foam, trimmed and painted to match the 70 year old faux redbrick tar paper siding. I found the machine from the store to be heavy and bulky and more suited for a construction job site where you have 2 or 3 people working the job. The machine also needed the insulation to be broken up by hand saving me no labor over having to do the same thing with the leaf blower. I do not think the store machine broke it up a fine as the leaf blowers small impeller. The machine may have an advantage when you have large open cavities as I still had to drill holes every 3 to 4 feet. For the leaf blower, I found a large Serlite storage bin that held a whole bale of insulation. After jamming the 1 inch adapter into the hole in the wall, I then turned on the leaf blower and then fed the crumbled insulation into the intake nozzle. You just need to break up enough to get sucked up the nozzle. I could not find any heat leaks using a FLIR imager.

I have a space behind my kitchen cabinets where my plastic water pipes run next to an exterior wall along the floor. Will blowing this insulation into that space help to insulate those water pipes? Getting directly to the pipes without major demo is not an option.
Asked by: bg
Yes,if you can get it in . However I wouldn't worry about it much. To my knowledge most interior water pipes are not insulated.

Low Dust Cellulose Blow-in Insulation 19 lbs. Bag is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 260.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The product was good, BUT ..... Using Recycled newspaper as insulation is a great idea. A very green way to save energy costs and help reduce landfill waste. BUT we got the "free" blower from Home Depot for buying more than 20 bags. And as the story goes,you get what you pay for. The blower could barely push the insulation to the attic (only single floor). We were putting insulation under a finished attic floor so we removed boards under the center section as well as under the section that had cross bracing. The H. D. blower had great difficulty in filling the sections under the ceiling joists. The next day we got another blower from a rental company and what a difference! What took us 6 hours on one day was done in 2 the next. Home Depot does not or has the capability to determine if the insulation blowers are in good working order. One star for the HD blower. if it had worked we would have been done in 4 hours. buy the product here but get a decent blower from somewhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Drill 1 1/2" holes in outside walls all around and blew in insulation and the entire house was insulated in under 4 hours. Close the gate as far as it goes and then open it a couple of inches and that is all. Watch the gate from time to time sometimes they vibrate open and if open to far will clog the hose and then I would be very upset. It takes time but works like a champ and packs that stuff in the walls. Duct tape the hose to the machine and tape at all junctions and then I taped a funnel onto the end cut off to easily fit into the hole. Also take some twine and tie the hose onto the machine. I held the hose and filled the walls and my wife cut the bales in half with a serrated knife and fed them into the machine via a 20 gallon bin. Whenever a section of wall was full I would holler stop and she would immediately shut it off. I would move to a new hole and holler ok. This stuff made an immediate difference in how hot the house was. Very Very happy with this product and how well it went in the walls. Wear safety glasses and wear hearing protection.

It says "low dust" in the name, I would not like to try their idea of medium or high dust. I only recommend it because there is no other choice for cellulose insulation in the stores that rent the blowers. The dust I can deal with but the reason I rate it 3 stars is because in the 5 bags that I used, there were four pieces of mangled plastic that clogged the nozzle, two of them were water bottle caps. Each time it clogged I had to remove the nozzle to clear the jam, not an easy task since the only nozzle they had was a funnel I had to duct tape in place. I asked the clerk how there could be plastic in a cellulose product. He guessed that workers at the shredding factory must have thrown their empty water bottles in the shredder. Another major problem is the machine has a spinning agitator that is supposed to feed the insulation down to the blower but it just stirs up the stuff that is in the bottom of the hopper. A metal grate prevents the stuff from dropping down to the agitator so you have to stop and push the insulation down by hand. This makes the job very difficult if you are working alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Green Fiber Purchased 50 bags of Green Fiber to bring my R8 attic up to an R38. This is definitely a do it yourself project. Machine rental is free with a minimum purchase... at our store it is 20 bags in addition to a refundable deposit of $250. You need one person to load the hopper and the other to spray the insulation. A third person is helpful, if available, to assist in feeding the extra hose in or out of the attic as needed. Comes with 50 feet of hose and the machine stays outside. Need duct tape to connect hoses, and a broom stick taped to the end of the hose is helpful as well. It does create dust clouds that can make it difficult to see at times, dust mask is needed, however the insulation is not itchy, i wore a t-shirt. The hardest part was trying to keep the insulation level...I would recommend stapleing several measuring tape markers or paint marks to know how how high you need to go. I only had 6 for a 950 foot area and could have used many more. Took approximately 5 1/2 hours to spray 50 bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Easy Installation Me and my buddy decided to insulate both of our houses on a Saturday and we bought three pallets of the Greenfiber (105 bags). This gave us a discount on the bags and a free rental of the insulation blower. Installation was a breeze. The machine worked perfect, we loaded a half bag at a time and broke it up by hand as we fed it. 1 person in the attic installing while the other person fed the machine. Was able to get both of our houses up to a 38 R value and had some insulation left over so we returned it. This is a must do project that is easily done and way cheaper then paying someone to do it. I recommend attaching a broom handle to the end og the hose so you can have a further reach and to wear a full body suit and mask...this stuff is dusty!!! All in all this took us around 6 hours for both houses and we stopped and had a lunch break. Again super easy and I already feel a difference in my house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This insulation made a great difference in my room climate and was easy to install. I was recently having the roof repaired over my back room and decided on a whim to blow in some insulation. After doing some quick research on the net I decided to go with the natural fiber. I went to Home Depot where I picked up the insulation and the machine. My wife and I were blowing insulation about ten minutes after pulling the machine out of the car. At first I was concerned that the space would be hard to fill because I only had a small opening and had to go about 10 ft to the back of the ceiling. The long hose, and the expanding quality of the insulation filled every little space. That night was the first winter night in my back room that I did not have to run a space heater. Notes on Instalation: It is a two person job, no way aroud that. It is very dusty (of course), so wear eye nose mouth protection. Not always easy to judge the amount you will need. I ended up buying extra and was able to return it. This is much better than fiberglass for the DIY crowd. Overall, I was very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great and easier than we thought. We used 10 bales to top off an attic of a two-story. Brought the place from R-13 (or less) to R-30. We used 150 feet of hose. I recommend getting all the hose they have. It takes more than we thought. One more person (total three folks)at the machine to sweep and clean while doing the job is a plus. I highly recommend a dust mask for everyone. A shop-vac for final cleanup did help. I recommend a table that is a little higher than the hopper. That helps in removing the plastic from the bales and loading the hopper. It took us three and one-half hours from picking up the machine and bales to returning the machine to Home Depot. This included clean up. I will never use fiberglass again. This stuff is no itch. It is easier than I thought it would be. Oh yes, it was 33 degrees outside when we started. I would never do this in summer. Now to enjoy a lower heating bill. Only bad thing is the service desk is ringing up sales. That really slowed us (and others) up that needed the service desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works. No IFs, ANDs, or BUTs about it. Just use more than the label says It was pretty easy to blow it myself. My wife stuffed the packages into the blower machine, rented free from HD since we bought more than 10. I manned the other end of the line. Just spray away until you have it to the height you want. Use the hose, and the hose only. Don't bother to attach the little funnel with the 1" opening to spray it out. Let it fall out slowly, where you want. Good enough. I ordered it online and picked it all up at our store the next day. HINT HINT- get more than the label says for the R value that you want. For our R value, we needed (80 bags per 1000 sq ft) 40 bags, but we ended up having to buy extra, using 77 to get the correct R value. WORD TO THE WISE- buy DOUBLE what you want, you can always return the extra. A little extra insulation doesn't hurt.
