Why Cellulose Insulation...?

  • 10 Oct, 2017

Is your house part of the 90% of homes in the US that are under insulated?

Is your home affected by any of these signs of insulation deficiencies:

- Fluctuating temperatures??

-High energy bills??

-Cold walls, rooms, floors, or ceilings??

-Chilly drafts?

-Mice and bugs in your home?

-Frozen pipes?

 

These problems may all be caused by one thing, NOT ENOUGH OF THE RIGHT INSULATION!

Insulation is so imperative to your home, because it is the most practical and cost-effective way to make your home more energy efficient, keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, and it can save up to 80% in heating and cooling losses.

When you think of insulation, do you think of puffy, pink, and itchy fiberglass insulation?? We know that most people do. That's why we are introducing to you to Cellulose Insulation! Cellulose Insulation is the green choice. It features the highest recycled content of any insulation material. Not only do we love it because it can save you money every month, but it helps America conserve vital energy resources for the future. It's easy to see why Cellulose Insulation is the better choice for you and your home.

 

Cellulose Vs. Fiberglass                                                    

Cellulose-

  • Non-toxic
  • No itching
  • Non-flammable
  • Gray color
  • Soft material
  • Lifetime guarantee
  • Sound proofing
  • Rodent, insect, mold, and mildew resistant              

 

Fiberglass-

  • Itchy
  • Hazardous warning label
  • Rodents nest in it
  • Minimal sound proofing
  • No resistance to mold, mildew, and insects
  • Rigid glass fibers
  • Vibrant pink, yellow, or white color                                 

 

 

Dispelling myths about Cellulose Insulation:

 

You may have heard because C ellulose is made of paper, that must mean it will be more susceptible to humidity and mold.

Cellulose Insulation is no more subject to mold contamination than any other building material. Published studies indicate that the hygroscopic nature of cellulose insulation results in superior moisture handling characteristics.

 

It’s easy to think that R-Value is R-Value, so it really doesn't matter what insulation is used. 

R-Value is only one factor to consider when choosing insulation. The performance of an insulation material is also dependent upon reducing heat loss through air infiltration, convection, and radiation. Cellulose Insulation reduces air infiltration and convection better than other fiber insulation products with the same R-Value, giving Cellulose Insulation superior overall performance

 

You may have been driven away from Cellulose Insulation because it is more expensive.

The difference in price is easily compensated in the greater savings on energy costs by using Cellulose Insulation. Blown in Cellulose and blown in fiberglass insulations are comparably priced. Cellulose Insulation is less expensive than foam.
