Michael Ormandy: Cellulose, use cellulose everyone says. Let me tell you something. The reason I am going to have this done to a bunch of my wall cavities is that the geniuses who insulated the house thought cellulose was the greatest thing since sliced bread as well. Problem is, it eventually shrivels, and some sections just fall down the wall cavity leaving voids with no insulation at all. Now I don't doubt that the people who did the job could have done a better job, but still, after this experience I wouldn't use that crap under any circumstances. Fiberglass is light and stays in place. I and I agree that breathing it is bad, and that's why I will be hiring others to do it. Also, if you want to pay for the best, you spray in foam...I just don't feel like paying for it.

Chris Nyman Weller: THANK YOU for including the drywall repair method in your video! I was planning to use something more like shim-stock, but looking at your video, I think the 1/4" ply may be a better choice. I've been planning a project like this for several years now, and it's reassuring to see someone else having done it this way. Love it!

Chris Nyman Weller: Its actually pretty hilarious watching him flumbing around with a rather poorly thought out method of stopping back-flow. If their company does this all the time, why not create a gasket, fit like a donut, that slips over the fill tube and snug against the wall?

Mr.69 yes: great video bro did this actually help keep your house cool or warmer

Mark F: How much did the company charge?? I need this done here in Cincinnati.

GreatLakes Entrepreneurial: Why on earth would you reference the use of recycled newspaper for insulation? I don't mean to inuslt, but I hope you understand the caliber of fire hazard that would produce. Fiberglass isn't a much more fire retardant option, but holy hell man...

7.62 full metal: Then simply hang a bunch of your favorite pictures over the holes ! too easy !

matran47: As the new owner of an old house (1890), I'm dealing with this blown-in crap as I try to renovate the house. It may have been a necessity during the era it was done, but I can tell you one thing: If I EVER find the guys who did this, I WILL KILL them if they're not already dead!! What an F'in mess! And...you can't recycle the s**t; the stuff in my walls is a mixture of cellulose and ground up filberglass. Did I mention that I will KILL whoever did this?

Hal Kittsmeller: did you make sure to smack their asses when they leave?

Lawrence Pina: Helpful video. Thanks for sharing.

Kris Babas: But all you're doing is filling the hole from the ground to that level and not all that space above correct?

Scott L: dense pack cellulose insulates much better than fiberglass. There are tests on youtube comparing cellulose to fiberglass. Cellulose won hands down, not even close

Dabney Cogdell: Thank you. I didn't know if I should hire it done or do it myself. I will definitely hire it done!

tim bum: here is the part i find extremely hard to understand they make 500$ a day and dont wanna invest in a 40 $ full face respirator instead they mess around with a 3 $ mask and ruin your health.

marcurt100: Thanks very helpful

Lakario Davis: very very useful info! prise wise and just knowing how its done! any chance you could tell me how much you guys paid as my home dont have insulation in the attic or walls. or anywhere.

Justin Mccarter: shoot, I'd say buy one new sheet of a thinner drywall for the plugs

MrChewbone69: I have also heard of guys blowing insulation from the outside of the house. simply pop of siding, drill holes fill, quick plug, attach siding. No mess or appliance/furniture moving inside. Anyone done that?

Drew Spinoso: Thank you. If you were to do it again how would you blow it in?

Bellapuppy06: After 2plus years, how do you think it has held up and has it improved your heating efficiency?
