Many older homes in the greater Washington DC area do not have adequate insulation. With warm summers and cold winters, home insulation is very important for comfort and energy efficiency in Northern Virginia and Metro Maryland.
When insulation fails, it can causes high heating and cooling bills, drafts, large indoor temperature fluctuations and uneven temperatures throughout the home. If you have uncomfortably warm or cold rooms, upgrading your home insulation may provide a solution. Cellulose insulation is a great way to cut home energy bills and boost comfort.
The Benefits of Blown In Cellulose Insulation
- Lower energy bills
- Greater home comfort
- Safe and non-toxic materials
- Reduced use of HVAC equipment

Home Insulation Solution
From Falls Church, to Fairfax, The Fifth Fuel team frequently utilizes cellulose insulation in existing homes. This environmentally-friendly insulation even dampens noise for a quieter home. The cellulose insulation we use is made of recycled newspaper, making it both a safe and non-toxic home product.
This blown-in insulation is highly durable and resistant to mold growth, for a healthier and comfortable home. It even allows your heating and cooling system to work less, saving energy and wear and tear on the HVAC system.
The Home Insulation Process
Our cellulose insulation equipment is truck mounted and we run a hose into the home or business. The Fifth Fuel begins each job by laying down plastic to keep work spaces clean, removing the old insulation, and air sealing. Blown-in cellulose insulation is then applied to the attic, walls, ceiling, and sometimes floors over unconditioned spaces.
