BATT VS. BLOWN-IN INSULATION

It’s finally getting warmer—which means you’re probably thinking of ways to save money while staying cool and comfortable at home. Insulating is a good place to start! Fiberglass is one of the most popular materials to use.

But there are two different kinds—batt and blown-in.

The Difference Between Batt and Blown Insulation

Which one is best for your home? Our team can help you determine that, but in general, here are a few things to keep in mind:

Batts

Fiberglass Insulation

Batt, or blanket, insulation is:

  • Generally installed in unfinished walls (including foundation walls).
  • Well suited for stud and joist spacing that is free from obstructions like wiring, pipes, etc.

Blown

blown-in insulation

Blown-in insulation is:

  • Generally installed in enclosed existing walls (retrofit projects) or open new wall cavities (new construction projects) and unfinished attic floors.
  • Good for adding to existing finished areas and around obstructions like wiring and pipes.
  • Blown into place using special tools.
  • Also referred to as “loose-fill” (loose-fill is a popular type of cellulose).

Learn more about batt vs. blown insulation—and get information on other types of insulation—on the Department of Energy’s website »

There is no “better” type of insulation—it all depends on where you need to insulate, how much insulation you need and more. A professional will be able to assess your space and determine the material that will work best.
