Cellulose Insulation

Blown in cellulose is a highly effective, environmentally friendly insulation solution; made from recycled materials and treated with borate to be an effective flame retardant and help reduce issues with pests. The even distribution of blown in cellulose insulation makes for a high performance insulation that has come into increasing favor among green builders and building energy efficiency experts. 

A few reasons we like blown in cellulose insulation —

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

Cellulose is made from 75-85% ground up recycled paper or recycled denim, so it’s an earth-friendly insulation solution. You can also rest assured that it’s a safe product to have in your house — no formaldehyde, no harmful chemicals.

CONSISTENT HIGH PERFORMANCE 

Because cellulose is blown into cavities as small particles rather than installed in batt form, it’s far less likely to come with gaps and air leaks around the edges. This means that you get consistent high performance – for a cozier, more energy efficient home.

FIRE RETARDANT 

Cellulose is treated with the flame retardant borate, which is highly effective at slowing down the spread of fires. A house that is insulated with blown in cellulose insulation is safer from a fire-hazard standpoint than an uninsulated house. 

HIGH R VALUE

R-value is the amount of an insulating material needed to keep hot or cool air. The higher the better and the R-value of cellulose is better than most other insulations.

LESS EXPENSIVE

Cellulose is generally cheaper than many other options. It can save you up to 25% more money compared to some of the standard insulations. Blown cellulose easily fills in cracks and crevices to provide a seamless barrier.
