What Is the Difference Between Batt and Blown-In Insulation?

With winter around the corner (and temperatures already chilly here in the Cincinnati area), one thing probably on your mind is how to save on your heating bills. If you’ve been watching the numbers increase for seemingly no reason, you may need more insulation.

But what type of insulation should you install? Fiberglass is one of the most commonly installed insulation materials, and it is available in batt and blown-in form.

Batt vs. Blown-In Insulation

How is batt insulation different than blown-in insulation?

Typically made of fiberglass, batt insulation is available in pre-cut panels and is one of the most common forms of insulation. It’s often installed in spaces relatively free of obstructions (such as pipes and wiring). Batt insulation is smoother looking and can be almost be thought of as a thermal blanket. It is often installed in walls, particularly for new construction projects.

Blown-in insulation, also referred to as loose-fill insulation, is installed using a blowing machine. Depending on the material of the insulation, the installation method may vary slightly.

Both blown-in and batt insulation can be installed in different areas of a home, including the attic and the walls. A professional will be able to assess your home and insulation needs to determine which type of insulation would be an ideal solution.

Fiberglass insulation is available in blown-in form—and so is cellulose (which is referred to as loose-fill cellulose). Blown-in fiberglass and cellulose have superior sound control capabilities and can help reduce noises from outside and inside, between different rooms and levels.
