Lightbulb insulation

I for sure would go with the cellulose over the fiberglass anytime.Tell you what.Take some fiberglass and a small torch to it. Now it dont burn but it will melt. Now like we use to do. Take a hand full of the cellulose put a penney in it and with the torch again and you can melt the penney and the cellulose will still be there. It will turn black and get a glow on it but it wont go up in flamesor melt. Had some pictures at the time . Fire in the attic the whole roof gone off the home the fire did not get down into the home.
Now if you have it done count the bags. They can say give you a 12 " blow and take a 1/4 of the bags back just by opening up the air shutter on the machine so like count the bags you need for the R value you want Id say its a very good insulator ED
