High-Performance Blown-in Attic Insulation for Homes in Minneapolis
Is your HVAC system struggling to maintain comfortable temperatures in your home during the frigid winters and scorching summers? Have you noticed that your energy costs are increasing? These problems can often be traced back to inadequate attic insulation. At Snap Construction, we can provide the answers you’re looking for by providing a free attic insulation assessment and consultation. We can dramatically improve your home’s thermal performance by installing premium blown-in attic insulation.
What are the Benefits of Blown-in Attic Insulation?
Snap Construction uses specialized machines to install blown-in attic insulation made of cellulose or small fragments of loose-fill fiberglass. The installation process ensures even coverage without leaving any gaps, defending your home against air leakage and heat transfer. This is especially useful in older homes, which often do not have adequate insulation.
Beyond significantly increasing energy efficiency and making it less costly to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures, blown-in attic insulation provides other benefits. Insulation can improve soundproofing and reduce condensation that would otherwise result in mold and mildew growth. And by reducing attic temperatures, insulation can also stop destructive ice dams from forming on the eaves of your home.
Types of Blown-in Attic Insulation
There are two common blown-in insulation types: fiberglass and cellulose. Pricing varies between insulation contractors and generally follows supply and demand. As experienced insulation installers, the Snap Construction team can help you choose the best insulation for your home and budget.
Fiberglass Blown-in Insulation
Fiberglass is the most common type of blown-in insulation. Fiberglass insulation is made from sand and glass, is low density, and is often found in rolls called batts in addition to loose fill.
Cellulose Blown-in Insulation
Cellulose insulation is made from recycled paper with added minerals for fire resistance. It can only be blown in and does not come in other insulation types. Cellulose insulation is higher density, more environmentally friendly, and easier to manufacture than fiberglass.

What’s more, Snap Construction exceeds code requirements with our blown-in insulation installations. The current state code reads that new homes should have 16.5 inches or an r49 rating. At Snap, you will get charged for r49 and receive 20 inches or r60. We have found that r60 performs much better in our climate, and we expect to see a change in the state code accordingly in the near future. We also include a complete ventilation system with your insulation.
