I am trying to add insulation to the ceiling in my garage/kitchen floor is above it . I would like to know what it the best type of insulation to buy fiberglass or another . I am getting a blower to blow the insulation and fiberglass insulatation requires a different kind . Any suggestions ???

Unless you have access to a commercial insulation blower, and lots of experience running it, I would suggest that you leave this job to a pro. The space between the garage ceiling and the kitchen floor is a series of closed cavities, and you will have no way of knowing how much insulation you are putting into each one of those cavities. You will underfill the first three or four, and blow the sheetrock off of the joists on the next one.

Contact a couple of insulation contractors and get bids to have it done for you. Probably cheaper than you think. (And use cellulose, not fiberglass!)
