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 224.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Easy Even for a beginner DIYer We just increased our attic insulation to R38 with Green Fiber and it was the right choice. This product isn't fiberglass so it won't make you itchy and irritated like much of what else is on the market. It's also easy to apply. When my father and I put it in, 20 bags got you the machine for 4 hours for free. It worked out great, but I would suggest borrowing a truck or mid size SUV. Our RAV-4 just barely fit the blower and hoses. The small attic at our new place took just over one hour total. Cleanup took a while and everyone involved should wear safety masks as there's a lot of dust thrown out. Overall it was an easy process and not as expensive (or itchy) as other options.

I did not use the blower you can rent for the 22x26 feet are in the attic, but I strongly suggest you do. (I used 11 bags of insulation) The bags are fairly small and I could fit 12 in my sedan. I tried doing it by hand but does not work well, and used garbage bins and a Paint and Mud Mixer for drill to prepare the rest outside and placing the prepped insolation in plastic bags and bring that into the attic. Actually works great if you only have a few bags of insulation. The insulation works really well and the added sound improvement is much appreciated.

My walls were already insulated with R15, and I blew in enough of this to equal about R38. It is currently 23 degrees outside, and it is a comfortable 59 in my garage right now, which is unheated. The actual process of blowing the insulation is simple, and the hardest part is the prep work, which took about 20 minutes. You have to make sure your baffles are installed properly to allow for ventilation. Outside of that, and installing some insulation on the backside of your access panel, this is a quick afternoon job. I highly recommend doing this if you spend any time in the garage during the cold months.

Just finished a 137 bag project today, so too early to tell/see any difference in heating. I was really apprehensive about using Home Depot's blower after reading all the reviews, but decided to dedicate two full days to blowing all the Green Fiber into my attic. Started at 8:30 this morning and was completely finished at 11:30 - yes 11:30 AM! 137 bags in three hours, and we had to move into two separate attic spaces. I had the attic all prepped well in advance, and when I got the blower, I spent about two hours cleaning it, oiling the chain, greasing it, cleaning the hoses and patching any holes. Had 3 people on the ground setting bags on a table next to the blower, cutting the plastic wrapper off, and feeding material into the machine. Some really key points: 1. Get a 6' piece of 3" vent pipe to easily put on and take off the end of the hose in the attic; it gives you a lot more precision in getting into corners plus allows you to direct the fiber where you want it. 2. Spend the money for a Tyvek suit with a hood, fully enclosed goggles and a couple of 95 rated masks. It is very dusty in the attic, but not miserable. 3. My machine had a switch at the end of the hose to shut off the flow of fiber through the hose which was GREAT because you were in total control of the operation. 4. Even though there was a switch on the end of the hose in the attic, we had walkie talkies so we could communicate about how many bags we were using which gave you an idea of the accuracy of your application and if you were going to be long or short on material. All in all, a piece of cake. The crew at the St Joe, Missouri Home Depot were the friendliest and most accommodating group of people that I have dealt with in years - hey were absolutely great!!!! Now the real test to see what the energy savings will be.

I bought this product to create paper clay for a ceramics class, so I cannot speak to its intended use. But it seems to be doing fine as an additive to paper clay! I like that it's a recycled material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIY and save money This is the best DIY project we ever did. Spent 5 times less than the contractor quoted price by blowing the insulation by two of us in 3 hours. House is very quiet and warm right after the insulation. We followed some of the tips posted by others. Sealing the hose connections using duct tape, attaching a piece of wood/pipe towards the end of the hose, covering the attic opening as well as the door near the machine, etc. We had dust only in the attic during blowing meanwhile the house was spotless. If possible, rent the new taller and lighter machine instead of the square one. It was just blasting off the cellulose at a greater speed. Also cut all the bags open and split into half before you start.

I used this insulation and the Home Depot blower to install 100 bags in my house 1650 sq. ft and garage 480 sq. ft. did it all in 3.5 hrs and it went far better than I expected. it is now 100 degrees outside and my bedroom is 75 it has not been that cool since I moved into the house. I am well pleased and would recommend this to anyone to reinsulate their attic space. I taped an extension paint pole to the hose to reach those far away places and stayed in the center of the attic. Loved it....
