How many of you guys are using blown-in insulation for your new construction jobs? I.E. Owens Corning's Atticat or something similar.

Airconditioning contractors are not responsible for attic insulation.

Isulation guys have been using blown in for attics for over 60 years around here. The type has chaged but it's still blown in.

Several hvac contractors here offer insulation services as part of a total approach to efficiency.
My area is generally R30-R38 blown in for accessible areas, batts in areas not accessible after drywall. Open cell foam on the homes with bigger budgets or conservation conscious owners.

My company offers it. Why not? If a customer has no insulation or needs more over there existing then I advice them that they need it.
Its a win/win, the customer gets it done by pros instead of trying to do there selfs, it decreases the load on the home and allows for smaller/proper sized system to be installed.
In turn saving them $$$ while providing add. Add on for sales that helps the customer. That is at the least the way that I look at it.

Most of my customers install insulation in their new construction jobs, and some upgrade their customer's current insulation or replace it when needed. I am just wondering how common it is seen in the field.
