Watch this video about improving blown-in fiberglass insulation with blown-in cellulose insulation.
Blown-in insulation is also referred to as "blow-in" or "blown" insulation. It doesn't really matter which term you use. What DOES matter is the improved energy performance that blown insulation makes possible in any unfinished attic.
According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, most attics aren't adequately insulated. A typical home is likely to have less than R-20 attic insulation. But throughout most northern states, the DOE recommends that attics in be insulated to R-49 or more.

Some insulation contractors install blown fiberglass insulation, some install cellulose and some can install both types of blown insulation. Blown fiberglass and blown cellulose are both "fluffy" insulation materials with similar R-values.
The installation method for blown fiberglass and blown cellulose is identical. A shredding and blowing machine located outside the house forces the blown insulation through a long, flexible hose that extends into the attic, where a technician directs the flow. Blown fiberglass and blown cellulose insulation can be installed directly over existing attic insulation, providing that this older insulation is in good condition.
If you haven't yet made this energy-saving investment, it's definitely worth doing. Once it's complete, there's no maintenance to worry about. An insulation upgrade is a once-and-done improvement you'll enjoy for as long as you own your house.
