You don’t have to spend “tons” of money to make your home more energy efficient!CMS Homes LLC offers our new home owners the Blow-In-Blanket System (BIBS®) for a cost of $1,550 on the typical new ranch home.


  • Thermally Efficient and Cost-Effective The most R’s per inch. BIBS provides the highest R-Value possible in typical sidewall applications. Typical R-Value is R-15 in walls and R-40
  • Reduced Air Infiltration National Laboratory tests show the Blow-In-Blanket® System reduces air infiltration up to 68% over conventional batt-type insulation, providing more comfort.
  • Fills Voids Test show that even a small gap in an insulated cavity can cause a substantial increase in heating or cooling costs. BIBS makes it easier for installers to provide a superior insulation job with no voids around wires, electrical boxes and pipes. Odd sized framing assemblies are no problem. The absence of voids means you’re assured of full R-Value for a superior finished job and exceptional thermal efficiency.
  • Excellent Sound Control By filling all voids and gaps, BIBS significantly reduces unwanted sounds from appliances, televisions, teenagers, stereos and ventilation systems. Installing BIBS® around pipes and plumbing fixtures will help decrease the noise common with running water. Ideal for master bedroom suites, bathrooms, in-home offices and entertainment rooms.
  • Safety The Blow-In-Blanket® System is naturally nonflammable, does not support the growth of mold, and contains no formaldehyde.
  • Recycled Content In addition to its energy-saving and custom-fitting qualities, the Blow-In-Blanket® System incorporates fiberglass made with 25% or greater recycled content.
  • Environmentally Sustainable BIBS with InsulSafe SP is manufactured by CertainTeed, a company committed to sustainable building practices and a member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). The product is GREENGUARD® Certified for superior indoor air quality.
