Give your home an upgrade with blown in cellulose or fiberglass attic insulation and experience savings, good health, and home value!
Blown-in insulation fills every nook and cranny of the attic and creates an extra fluffy layer of effective insulation. It is a convenient choice that can be blown in over existing insulation or in between walls and ceiling joists without disturbing structures. Loose-fill fiberglass or cellulose can be blown on your attic floor, between walls, or other spaces that may require insulation. Blown-in insulation can easily cover large areas and will fill in areas with tight spaces and angles. Koala Insulation of Gateway West & Metro East IL installs blown-in for retrofit, residential, commercial, and new build construction.

See what our satisfied customers have to say about our blown in service!
They installed attic Insulation and Also a roof fan. I highly recommended to anyone needing to get theirs done. Definitely will be using again for other parts of the house as well.
Very pleased. Would recommend to anyone that needs a good company for blown in insulation. Very professional. Arrived on time. Cleaned up afterwards. Folks were courteous and answered all my questions.
The Team at Koala Insulation provided an amazing service and deal for my attic insulation job which added additional R19 to my existing attic insulation. The team was on time and got to work immediately.
Just had David and his team do blown-in in our house and the service and install was the best. They were neat clean and right away notice a huge difference in our electric bill along with overhead noise from outside from airplanes....so happy with this investment to our home!
The Koala crew did a great job. The insulation job was promptly scheduled and reasonably priced. The additional insulation should reduce my electric bill. My house needed missing insulation to be reinstalled. Jeff, and the crew were professional and super nice to deal with. Thank you so very much.
When it comes to blown-in insulation, you have two primary choices: Cellulose and Fiberglass. Learn more with our videos below!
Cellulose consists of fibers made from recycled newspaper, cardboard, or wood and is made with or without binders. Cellulose is a very common type of blown-in insulation as it is made from recycled materials and is chemically treated to resist pests, mold, and fire. Boric acid is the primary chemical used to treat Cellulose insulation and is found naturally in seawater, fruits, and plants.
Fiberglass is made from plastic, glass, and other raw materials that are melted and spun into fibers that resemble the texture of wool. Fiberglass insulation has moisture and fire-resistant properties. Because fiberglass is made from sand and glass, it is naturally non-combustible. Fiberglass has significant recycled content with some loose-fill products containing up to 80% recycled glass.
Increasing the R-value of your insulation may help you to money on energy bills and maximize the energy efficiency of your home. Blown-in insulation is a environmentally conscious, cost effective way to increase your attic’s insulation, which in turn may help lower your cooling and heating bills. For maximum energy efficiency, we recommend a powerful combination of insulation and proper air sealing. This can help eliminate air leaks that pass through recessed light fixtures, plumbing areas, and duct work.
Blown-in insulation slows heat transfer from your attic to the lower levels of your home during the hot summer and works hard to keep the warm air inside your home during the cold winter months. The attic is the main location where heat enters and exits the home, making it difficult to keep your home temperatures consistent. Proper insulation can target reducing heat transfer while also allowing your HVAC system to increase its performance.
One of the many positive benefits Blown-in insulation has is that it is environmentally friendly. Not only does it improve the energy efficiency of your home, but it also helps protect the environment.
Cellulose is made up of 80% recycled materials, with the remaining consisting of non-toxic borate solution. This solution gives the insulation a Class-1 fire safety rating and makes it mold and pest resistant. Certain fiberglass products can contain up to 80% recycled glass products and is non-combustible.
Blown-in insulation not only protects your home from energy loss, butal so helps reduce emissions associated with heating and cooling equipment. For those home owners who are looking for economical ways to reduce their environmental impact, curb energy waste, and increase the comfort of your home, blown-in insulation may be the solution for you!
Blown-in insulation provides a dense, effective barrier against heating/cooling loss or gain, and it provides an affordable R-value per inch. “R” means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power.
Dense-packed cellulose or fiberglass insulation blocks the bulk of air movement and has a higher R-value per inch than insulation installed at a lower density. Attics can accommodate a deep layer of insulation, as much as 16 to 26 inches, making the resistance to heat flow even higher by installing blown-in insulation.
Fiberglass blown-in insulation is a loose material which allows the installation amount to be customized according to your local energy efficiency recommendations. Depending on which climate zone you live in, you may need a higher R-value. The higher the R-value, the more it will decrease air flow and help you conserve energy.
When it comes to insulating your home, R-value matters.

Koala Insulation Exceeded our Expectations
We became acquainted with Koala Insulation through Jennifer at the 2022 St. Charles Home Show last April. From the initial attic inspection to the day of installation, Jennifer was accessible, professional and very knowledgeable, answering all our questions.
Koala installed a solar attic fan and added blown-in insulation.
Mark, Cory and his crew and Jennifer arrived on time, worked efficiently and, the work area was cleaned up at the end of the project.
With hot weather upon us this early in the year, we’re enjoying a cooler attic which will save us money on our A/C bills. And the added insulation should reduce our heating bills, too.
I would recommend Koala to anyone wanting to lower their energy consumption and their bills; they have several options available.
These Guys Rock!
These guys ROCK! Not only was the estimate for adding insulation to my 58 year old house much lower than I had anticipated, they came out when the temperature broke a record for this day in May (93 degrees) and did an amazing job! Matt paid painstaking attention to the details that were vital (covering attic fan from inside, etc), and he and Corey (sp?) were professional, despite the heat."
St Charles, MO
Professional, friendly and courteous crew did a great job installing attic insulation. The process and experience were top notch from the free estimate to work completion.
Absolutely impressed with the whole operation! From the estimate to the insulation install…all so friendly, professionalism, on time, and the insulation team did a FANTASTIC clean up job!! Highly recommend.

New Town, St Charles
2nd time using them....and once again extremely pleased of the work they performed. Wish more contractors had their competence and professionalism. Give them 5 out of 5 no problem.
Webster Groves, MO
Excellent service. Blown in insulations for two rooms. A big shout out to Jo for arranging it all so quickly, and to Josh and his mate for showing up on time, working quickly and getting the job done and the great clean up afterwards. It was not an easy job but they were pros and got it done. I have hired a lot of people to work on my homes over the years. I want people who show up when they say they will, quote me a fair price and stick with the price, do the work contracted and clean up after themselves. These folks more than checked the boxes on all accounts. I would highly recommend them
My house is newer, however had hardly any insulation in the garage. They did an awesome job from sealing where there was air leakage and canned light covers. The fiber glass blow in was quick and they cleaned up as if they were never there. I highly recommend this team and look forward to having them do my home attic very soon!
Excellent service from Koala. They were professional and made the process easy. Highly recommend this company.
They arrived and completed the job early. Very friendly and professional and cleaned up after themselves. I would recommend this company to everyone!

Webster Groves, MO
WOW!!! From the free quote, to install, to clean up, these guys are FANTASTIC! In a world full of horror stories on getting work done on your house, these guys are a knight in shining armor. Customer service is very responsive in text, email and phone calls to set up appts etc. We had insulation installed in our finished garage, in the ceiling (there is a bedroom above the garage). I was worried it would be a terrible mess and that it wouldn't work as well as I wanted it to, to regulate temperature. The installers left my garage cleaner than when they came and more importantly that bedroom is now staying within 1-3 degrees of the thermostat (previously a 4-8 degree difference). Highly recommend."
St Charles, MO
They were very easy to work with they did an outstanding job on my attic and garage insulation I would use them again and would absolutely recommend it
St Peters, MO
We decided last minute to remove the insulation on our renovation project. Jennifer was absolutely wonderful! She worked it out so they could do the work before we pulled down the ceilings. The crew showed up on time, were very nice, did a great job removing the insulation, and the price was honored based on a sight unseen quote. We highly recommend Koala Insulation.
We used Koala to replace old insulation in our attic recently. They did a fantastic job, were very professional, friendly and responsive. 100% satisfied and would highly recommend. They are also local and family owned, which I liked :)"
West County St Louis
Had spray foam done on my rim joists and sill plate. Service was quick and everyone involved was very polite. If I need any spray foam done on future projects, I am for sure going to call these guys.
Koala Insulation is big on customer satisfaction and customer service. They did a great job, were competitively priced, and left the job site clean. This is a great business to work with, and I highly recommend them!
Newtown St Charles, MO
Very professional and hard working. Great customer service from beginning to end. They did an excellent job installing attic insulation. Highly recommend!
Review by Orville
Project: Install or Upgrade Blown-In Insulation
Comments: It was smooth from the first contact (owners) the sales rep that gave a thorough description of material products to choose from (what was most suitable for our need and application options. We were impressed and confident enough to sign up for the job, without other quotes. A few days later, a father and son team showed up the job which was completed in about 2.5 hours, including clean up. We didn't bother with seeking other estimates and have no regrets. Orville
