Insulation

I have an inside wall that has a vent for our microwave extending to the outside. This wall is not insulated and is approximately 120 sq ft. I would like some ideas as how I can insulate this wall. The wall extends to the basement.. Most of our walls are not insulated, but we have aluminum siding on them.. Suggestions appreciated..

RE: Insulation

We insulated some finished walls from the inside. We rented the hopper from Home Depot, made holes at the top of the sheetrock between the studs so the hose would fit, and used those bags of insulation - cellulose I think. It was either that or take all the sheetrock off the walls to use batt insulation.
