Understanding The 'Old' Blow-In Insulation:

  • Blow in insulation, also known as "Cool or Cosy," "Blow In," "Loose Fill," "Cellulose," or "The-Fluff," is a common type of insulation installed in many houses.

  • It is commonly made of emulsified newspaper and organic cellulose, making it dusty, ineffective, and toxic.

  • Harmful chemicals such as lead, boric acid, and installed with added formaldehyde in the blown in insulation, leading to respiratory issues, especially in young children.

  • It is prone to fire risks, moisture retention, leading to inevitable ceiling sagging and roof collapse of existing homes.

  • Its reputation and extensive history was originated during the Kevin Rudd era, where tens of thousands of Aussie Homes utilised the government's subsidy, to upgrade homes with blow in insulation. But boy did we create a catastrophe.

  • Blow-in insulation has an extensive history being known as loose-fill insulation installed in roofs and walls, with the perception as a highly effective method of insulating your home. Its poor history when known as celulose, wool, and newspaper has lead to Us completing over removals in over 10,000 Aussies homes.​

  • It's worth noting however, that unlike traditional insulation batts, which come in pre-cut rectangle shapes or rolls, blow-in insulation being made up of loose insulation, small particles that can be just blown in into tight spaces and hard-to-reach areas, is actually an incredible thermal solution!
