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 Blown-In Insulation 19 lbs. is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 423.
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.

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.

Purchased 100 Bags to cover 1400sqft Only ended up using 81 bags and added over 12in of blown in insulation to the entire attic. There were immediate results and it seems to have improved the efficiency of our home and the furnace is already runnings less. Happy with the product.

Bought this product to insulate my garage prior to installing a shop heater. Installation was simple in the attic space using the machine Home Depot provides (if you buy 20 or more bundles). Machine rental is also available for smaller quantities. I've done other insullation projects using pink fiberglass blown-in material and I found this cellulose product to be cleaner and less irritating to work with. Low dust doesn't mean no dust, but it's less than I've found with other products. Installation into the wall spaces was a bit trickier (always is), but again the Greenfiber performed very well. If you've never shot insullation into walls I would recommend studying up on the technique first. YouTube has a number of how-to videos that illustrate the process. I can say that, even without the heater installed, the garage stays much warmer. I'm very pleased with the result.

Green Fiber insulation worked great for my new construction ceiling insulation project. It's a time consuming project if you are doing a large project. But it really is pretty easy to do for any DIY person with even the modes of skill level. Plastic wrappers were easy to dispose of an made it easy to get the project out of the package. Lower dust version was nice. We all used masks for protection, but that's it and had no problems breathing, getting product into our eyes, no itching, or anything like that. Not nearly as dirty of a process that what I was expecting. It was dusty for sure, but it's not like we were caked up with layers of insulation at the end of the day. Definitely a two person job at minimum. Fortunately, we had three people tackle my project; one on the hose end spraying material, and two at the machine end shredding the vacuum packed material with 3 pronged garden tools as it fell into the hopper. Breaking the material down into smaller chunks sped up the process to the point the blowing machine hopper was never backed up with material. Letting the machine churn backed up larger chunks of insulation into small enough pieces to blow takes significantly longer. The material calculation charts provided with the product were pretty accurate in determining overall project bag count. I purchased 10 extra bags of insulation just to make sure I didn't run out at the end of the blowing operation. I ended up taking 7 bags back for credit. As part of the insulation project prep work, I would highly recommend installing the pressed paper insulation double sided depth gauges throughout the space you are going to blow insulation. This makes it easier to measure the depth of your insulation as you blow it in place. I purchased a pack of 100 from a 3rd party source for about $35 (including shipping). In retrospect, I should have bought and installed 200! To precisely control the depth of your insulation, these are a must, in my humble opinion. I ended up spraying almost 16" of product, which should net me R49+ after settling. Glad my project is done, and would recommend using GreenFiber Cellulose to my friends and family if they are in the DIY mode like I am.......

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 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.
