Fiberglass insulation is suitable and easy to install when you are dealing with an unfinished wall.

When you are working on a finished wall, it is best to go for the blow-in fiberglass insulation.

All you will do is drill small holes into the wall, which you will use to insert the blower machine’s nozzle and inject the insulation into place.

Cellulose wall insulation

Cellulose is the most eco-friendly insulation products available.

This is because it is a product of recycled papers and wood products.

Cellulose is available in blown-in insulation.

This makes it the best insulation material to go for when dealing with finished walls.

Like fiberglass blown-in insulation, you just need to strip a siding of the exterior wall and drill holes that you will use to inject the insulation.

Blown-in insulation

Blow-in insulation comes in different forms, but the most common one is the cellulose blown-in insulation.

Cellulose insulation is a product of mixing recycled papers and wood products.

The product is then treated with boric acid, which makes it inflammable.

Blown-in insulation is suitable for insulating any part of your home.

Air sealing is an excellent way to prevent more moisture and air leaking into your home.

There are a lot of ways you can decide to use to air seal your home.

From cheap techniques like fiberglass insulation and spray foam insulation to installing high-tech air barriers used in buildings under construction.

For the DIYs, you can decide to go for caulking and weather stripping, which is cheap and will still produce desirable results.

Caulking and weather stripping should, however, be used to seal small holes, mostly at the windows and doors.

For more extensive leaks in hidden places like basements, attics, and walls, you can go for spray foam insulation or fiberglass insulation.

When it comes to sealing your basement, you must ensure that you keep away moisture entirely as it would form a good climate for mold growth.

You can achieve this by installing gutters and finding a way to divert running water away from your house.
