Using an insulation machine is a great way to insulate your home but there are some things you need to know before using one. There are two different types of insulating, thermal insulation and loose-fiber insulation. Thermal insulation just requires fiberglass matting, caulk and a glue gun. It’s very easy and basically anyone can do it. Loose-fill insulation deals with tight spaces and attics where you need to fill tight gaps and cracks. If you are using an insulating machine, it’s important to wear goggles and a dust mask in order to protect your health.
