More than a few feet is counter-productive. This lofting action could affect settled density.

It depends how thick you apply the material. You need a volume to determine how many bails you need.

Why is there such a large price difference between this and Owens Corning, other than less weight, less dust, and paying for a name brand?

Asked by Superdave May 22, 2020

Fiberglass batting from Owens Corning is easier to apply. Just roll it out to cover all your attic space. It is also easier to remove it you need to get underneath to the attic wiring. It creates far less dust than cellulose. You pay more but get less hassle. Blown-in cellulose is sold heavily compacted so you'll need a machine to fluff it up and a hose to distribute in through your attic. The raw material, shredded paper is cheap, so it is cheaper. On the plus side, YouTube has a carefully done test in which three identical home-like buildings were set on fire the same way. The first to burn down was the one lacking any insulation. Second was the one with fiberglass. The one with this cellulose lasted significantly longer than the other two. (Search for "The Big Burn.") Despite the fact that cellulose insulation is made from recycled paper, the borate fire-proofing is remarkably effective. Also, I have cellulose in my attic and it's incredibly good at blocking out noise, which is handy since I live near an airport.

Can this be applied directly over existing fiberglass insulation??

Asked by JR May 19, 2020

Answer

Yes, but it depends on the condition of the old insulation and the type (batt vs blown in). If it was me, I would remove the old and put down new insulation.

24 bails. Keep in mind, it will depend on the store and the supervisor at the rental desk. I got the machine free with just 12 bails.

This product blows.... in nicely. It blows as well as other types of insulation with the added benefit of boric acid incorporated into the insulation to deter unwanted bugs.

Works as described. Did find that blowing in a wall cavity and dense packing will drastically lower the coverage per bag by about 50%.

The insulation product is good. I like that homedepot gives you the machine for free after 20 bags, but the machine is not that good, it's small, you can't just dump a whole bag in there. Plus machine gets plug up quickly, so you always have to add small amounts. I wish it was big enough to dump a whole bag.

The product was fine. A bit messy, clumpy and less per Cu.ft R-value as compared to the fiberglass product, but reasonable for the price difference. However, the blower machines for the fiberglass product are far superior.

Originally I was looking at the same product in a green and white bag that was 19lbs and was about the same cost as this 30lb bag. Obviously I saved a lot of money buying the larger bag for the same price. I have really noticed a big difference in home comfort. I highly recommend sealing the ceiling from the attic, installing radiant barrier and a attic fan to blow out the hot air out of the attic. All of this done my attic is only ever 10 to 15 degrees warmer than outside air and my house is very comfortable in summer. Most importantly I will save wear and tear on my AC unit.
