How to Blow Insulation in a Houseby HomeRepairExpert.com
Things You'll Need
- Stud finder
- Power drill
- Hole saw attachment
- Insulation blower
Step 1Use a stud finder to find the location of all of the studs along the wall of the room you want to insulate.
Step 2Drill a hole between each of the studs and into the drywall with a power drill using the hole saw attachment. The hole should be located 2 to 3 inches below the top of the wall or wall plate. Set the cut pieces of drywall aside.
Step 3Insert the end of the blower house into a hole and hold it in place by wrapping a rag around the end of the hose to keep insulation from coming out.
Step 4Have a second person turn on the insulation blower and begin blowing insulation into the cavity in the wall.
Step 5Turn off the insulation blower when you begin to feel resistance from the insulation in the wall cavity.
Step 6Repeat Steps 3, 4 an 5 for the rest of the wall cavities you want to fill with blown insulation.
Step 7Replace the cut drywall sections and patch with drywall mud. Repaint the walls, if needed, to complete the project.
Tips and Warnings
- Foam sealer can also be used to patch the drywall.
