In choosing insulation for your home, there are a number of different potential options to go with.

One of the most effective and environmentally friendly options on the market is that of blown­in cellulose insulation. Constructed from newspaper shreddings that are treated with a fire retardant chemical, blown cellulose can be evenly distributed throughout a space, leading to enhanced performance over alternative materials such as fiberglass batting. Cellulose insulation is the top choice for most green builders and energy efficiency experts, and it can make your home a safer, more comfortable place to live.

Why Cellulose?

There are a variety of reasons why many homeowners are choosing cellulose over other materials when attempting to take insulation to the next level. As mentioned above, cellulose is environmentally friendly in comparison with other materials, without the addition of formaldehyde or other dangerous chemicals. Because it can be blown into small cavities, it consistently performs to a high standard and is one of the most effective materials on the market for keeping conditioned air inside the house. It’s also fire retardant, which means you can rest easy knowing that you and your family are safe at night.

An insulating material’s “R-­Value” refers to its ability to keep conditioned air from escaping. With an R-Value of up to R­70, cellulose is one of the most impressive materials available to modern homeowners. Many homeowners find the differences to be instantly noticeable once they upgrade to cellulose insulation, making it one of the most valuable home upgrades you can make.
