Studies have shown that more than 2/3 of American homes are poorly insulated and that homes built more than a decade ago are the ones that are poorly insulated. Homeowners saw the necessity of improving their home insulation to reduce heat gain during the summer and heat loss in the winter. Newly built homes are required to have minimum amount of insulation based on the recommended R-value of their zone. However, it is sometime possible that a home is still properly insulated. In some cases, removing and replacing an existing insulation, new or old, has become necessary. More

In the early 2000s, an alternative material was introduced — wool. You have heard of various “blowing wool” products (which is just a misleading term for cellulose). This is REAL wool from sheep. It is organic, renewable and requires far less energy to make.
This material has its own properties that set it apart from fiberglass and cellulose. More

Some insulation vacuuming jobs require extreme lengths of hose. Insulation vacuums, no matter the manufacturer, can really perform best when they are within a 100 foot to 150 foot range. You are not always given this luxury of length. More
