Blow in insulation settles and compacts over time, which can affect the structure's ability to retain heat or stay cool.  In preparation for the upcoming summer months, a client wanted to add a few inches of new insulation to the attic.

In general, blow in insulation is easy to deal with, but made more difficult by tight spaces and attempting to do it solo.  The last time I did this by myself, I figured out a trick to control the blower without assistance.  That helped in this case but it was still a chore to reload the hopper every minute.
In just a couple of hours there was several more inches of new insulation throughout the attic, and thanks to the vendor's easy equipment rental terms it was well priced to boot!
