Cellulose Insulation

One of the most environmentally-friendly types of insulation

Cellulose Insulation

One of the most environmentally friendly insulation products on the market, cellulose takes less energy to manufacture than any other type of insulation material and diverts waste from landfills. Cellulose insulation is sprayed into attics, sidewalls and beneath flooring to have the biggest impact on energy efficiency, comfort and noise dampening.

Ever wonder what happens to those old paper phone books or jeans you used to have stacked in the hall closet? When you recycle them, they might get turned into cellulose insulation! Cellulose insulation is made from recycled newspaper, phone books, paper products and denim. To manufacture cellulose, the recycled materials are ground up and combined with boric acid, borax and aluminum sulfate to make it resistant to fire, mold and pests. Using a machine to blow insulation into the wall cavity, the cellulose can settle into all the nooks and crannies of the wall cavity. Cellulose insulation is perfect for existing homes that need an insulation update because it can fill hard to reach places and the installation process is minimally invasive.

TOP reasons to insulate

According to NAIMA (North American Insulation Manufacturers Association)

1

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Reducing the need to run your heating/cooling systems directly reduces power plant CO2 emmisions and lowers homeowners’ carbon footprint.

2

REDUCE ENERGY BILLS

Over the past 15+ years, residential electricity prices have jumped 39%! The average homeowner spends $2,200/year on energy bills.

3

homeowner demand

Energy efficiency is an increasingly important factor for homeowners. Whether they’re looking to remain in their home or sell in the near future, an energy-efficient home is desired.

4

sound insulation

Noise can come from outside (sirens, traffic, neighbors) or inside (kids, TVs, music), and the sound control provided by insulation is an attractive benefit.

5

healthy home

The health of your home can directly affect the health of its inhabitants. And for those that suffer from asthma or allergies, protection from outside pollutants and allergens can be essential for well-being.
