We were recently been advised by energy experts that blown in insulation in the attic is needed for energy efficiency. We also came to know, recently, that our house is done with aluminium wiring (in fact, entire neighborhood seem to be that way).

Please advise if it is safe to go with blown in cellulose insulation?
