blown insulation

I have an old house- built in 1900- it needs insulation in most rooms. We redid the living room and one of the bedrooms and insulated with rolls. Now I just want to help keep the house warm and wondered about blowing insulation into the walls from the inside. Must it be blown from the outside of the house? Are there areas where this cannot be done...walls with electrical boxes, baseboard heat, etc.?

Attic insulation is the first place to upgrade. Recall that heated air rises.

The next place is the walls. You can blow insulation into any wall. It can be blown in from the inside.

Here is a commercial how to on wall insulation:

Hope this helps.

Lightbulb insulation

For the walls Id say go with cellulose insulation . It goes in better than the other FG. You can blow it in from inside or outside.Look and see if you have fire stops in the wall. if so you will have to blow in the top and the bottom of the stud space No it wont hurt the elec box's. ED
