Two types of attic loose-fill insulations (unbonded and bonded/cubed) were tested under simulated winter conditions. To simulate winter conditions for an attic insulation, the specimens were tested with heat flow up, large temperature differences, and an air gap.

The specimens were tested either with a constant mean temperature (30 or The R-value of loose fill cellulose is R to per inch2. Loose fill fiberglass has an R-value of R to per inch3. Achieving the desired R-value depends on both the depth of the insulation and its density.
