I spent about 4 hours applying the insulation in an attic that had a scant amount of insulation applied by the builder. The house is now quieter, stays warmer, and my heating and cooling unit is running less and less. I invested just under $1,000 and hope that that money is returned a the next couple of years. Anyone can apply this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Electricution Issues with machine So I will first begin by saying that I have used an Attic Cat previously on several occassions at different houses. It works well when you have one person to feed the insulation into the blower, a second person to communicate with and the third person to hold the tube while blowing the insulation into the attic area. Where I will warn EVERYONE specifically at the Home Depot store #1978 - 5026 West Holiday Drive, Peoria, IL 61615 is DO NOT USE the attic cat with the following serial number: SN106031 - Service Provider Compact Powder Machine #150691 from this location will give you an electrical shock.

I need to top up the insulation in only a couple of spots in the attic. Can this be installed by hand?

Asked by: Allan
No, you need the blower machine, the insulation only expands as it mixes with the blown air. You need the machine to make it expand.

Can I use this to insulate my cathedral ceilings??

Asked by: Sean6
Yes you can use this to insulate a cathedral ceiling. Assuming you are in Canada, the following things are important: - you need an air space under the roof deck. Atticat fluffs up a lot, so you will need an air baffle to ensure a continuous opening under the roof deck from the low eave to the upper end, where it must be vented - as required by code. See https://www.homedepot.ca/product/owens-corning-raft-r-mate-attic-rafter-vents-rigid-extruded-polystyrene/1000503435 for such a product. I stapled this to the underside of the plywood roof deck using 1/2&quot; T50 staples in an air stapler. - you also need an airtight 6mil polyethylene vapour barrier on the warm side, ie just above the ceiling finish (usually drywall) - as required by code - to prevent moist inside air from moving through the insulation and condensing. I used 5/16 T50 staples to secure the poly to the bottom of the trusses. I then used the blue sheathing tape for the joints. d - I nailed 1x4 wood strapping @ 16&quot; on centers to screw the drywall to. - What is DIFFERENT is that every 6 to 8' up the roof I left a 32&quot; space (ie temporarily omitted one row of strapping) for access, leaving the poly hanging vertically, - On a ladder, the atticat hose can easily fill the void between the topside of the poly and the underside of the rafter vents for the 6 to 8 feet of one width of 102&quot; poly - After the void was filled, I stapled the poly into place, sealed it to the next row of poly and nailed in the strapping using an air nailer. - I then moved 'up' the ceiling to the next access row and repeated the process. - for the last row, instead of completing the entire row before stapling and strapping, I stapled and strapped after about 8' of the access opening, blowing the space full before continuing along the access line. - When I had only about a person-sized-hole into the insulation space, I taped the poly up, leaving only a hose sized hole. I then filled that last piece while slowly removing the hose completely filling the void, thus completing the insulation project. - Note that the vapour barrier must be continuous - sealed around pipes, lights, wiring, etc. Good luck, tedious and time consuming but doing it right &hellip; The Atticat is the least of the work.

How many of these are required for 900 sq. ft. at R40 value? And how long should it take to blow the insulation in. I'm going to hire a guy to do the attic work as I'm a senior. I can feed the machine but don't trust myself in attic any more.

Asked by: DWMack
Hi DWMack, each bag of Atticat insulation will cover approximately 48.9 square feet. Thanks for your inquiry!

Can this product be used in preexisting walls ? and if so how would this be done? and if not what would you recommend ?

Asked by: BlueMeanie
Hi BlueMeanie, we do not make recommendations for using our AttiCat in preexisting walls. We recommend finding a contractor in your area that installs our L77 using a machine with adjustable air velocity to ensure the proper density of the product in the wall. Thank you for your inquiry!
