Watching Insulation Be Blown In – The Final Adventure
Driving down the street the other day, I happened across this truck and then realized I was passing the home of a participant in the City of Durham’s Neighborhood Energy Retrofit Program who was getting insulation blown in. I immediately parked the car and ran over to see what I could see. Beth of Tuscaloosa-Lakewood neighborhood took these pictures of her house.
1. Above, we see the truck with its long hose which brings the insulation into the attic.
2. Above, the hose snakes down the hall. Notice how the contractor covered the pathway with drop cloths. This is to ensure minimal residue in the house.
3. Above, the entry to the attic in this house is via the closet ceiling. One of the workers is guiding the hose out of the attic as they have finished blowing in the cellulose insulation.
This house is now finished. So Beth can sit back and enjoy a cooler home in summer and warmer home in winter – AND save money!
