    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The insulation material seems great but the blower machine was very slow I bought 50 bags of AttiCat insulation material at Home Depot and rented the AttiCat blower machine at the Westbury Square local store of Home Deport. It takes about 1 hour to blow in a single bag! Unbelievable! The machine looks in a good shape and was inspected on August 6 within a week. This blower with a small hose (2"?) seems a newer type and model. Finally I rented a blower at my own cost at another Home Depot rental department for a rent rate of $100 per day plus tax. The rental blower with a 3" hose is actually an older model and type. It seems that the newer blower might be a junk.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from What a potential mess I was thinking of using this machine and insulation and do some re-insulating in parts of my attic. But after looking at the pictures people post, all I can do is think of what a pain i.t.a. it would be if ,for some reason I needed to make some kind of repair in there! Looks like the attics were caught in a blizzard. Ill go the batt method, where a clean path could be made easily if needed. It would cost me probably the same since Id have to pay to rent the machine, be in a certain time frame, and hope the machine works properly on top of that. Just my thoughts.

Before blowing in this insulation my house could not cool itself down when the temperature outside was above 98 degrees, it would get up to 80 degrees inside my home. After blowing in about 13-16 inches of this stuff into my attic my home will now stay at whatever temperature I would like. Blowing in the insulation was not difficult whatsoever but was time consuming.

    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.

    Hi, If I want to increase the R-value of my attic with this product by R-40 (currently R-20 and want to increase to R-60), how many inches do I need to blow in? Thanks

    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!

    What is the coverage like? I have a 900 sq ft attic on my home with blown in insulation already. It has settle over time plus it is compacted a bit where I have done some electrical work over the years. House is 20 years old

    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!
