Blown-in Insulation in the Attic
The guys showed up today to blow the insulation into the attic.
The truck has a machine in it to blow the insulation.
They ran a hose from the truck, in through the window, then up the ladder to the attic.
They put up markers to show the depth of the insulation.
The truck has a hopper. They open bags of insulation and pour it into the hopper. That’s the blue thing there. See how many bags full they have already used? They are held in a plastic sling near the hopper.
When they turned the machine on, it blows the materials through the hose and into the attic. It was quieter than I expected.
There were two guys. One poured the materials into the hopper, the other was in the attic, blowing in the insulation.
They guy working in the attic had a light like a caver or miner.
They had really good music, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Blues.
They started at the far end of the attic and worked toward the ladder.
The guy blowing the insulation balanced on the trusses.
The stuff blows out faster than you would guess. It was blowing around like snowflakes.
