Cellulose Insulation and Attic Insulation Services

Did you know that insulation is a key player when it comes to your home’s comfort and energy efficiency? Many homes are already insulated with materials using fiberglass. It was a good option for a while, but cellulose is making a comeback in a big way. Cellulose insulation’s resurgence is thanks to the material being a greener, more energy-efficient alternative. To help you reap the benefits of this kind of insulation, the experts at Taylor Heating offer cellulose insulation services as well as attic insulation and replacement for Rochester homeowners. Let us make sure that your home is all bundled up for year-round energy efficiency.

Benefits of Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose insulation—particularly when made from recycled paper products—boasts very high post-consumer recycled content. Additionally, the manufacturing process takes about a tenth of the energy needed to create more fiberglass. Finally, the overall effectiveness of fiberglass can drop significantly as the temperatures do. Cellulose, meanwhile, actually becomes MORE effective during cold weather.

Blown-In Attic Cellulose Insulation

If you want to close up any remaining gaps in your attic’s insulation, blown-in cellulose insulation is the way to go. This insulation method uses a blowing machine to blast the cellulose toward the uninsulated portions between joists. This allows for maximum coverage, as the small size of cellulose fibers reach every nook and cranny. It’s much less tedious than hauling batts of fiberglass into your attic and cutting them to size. When handled poorly, there may be inaccurate measurements and subsequent gaps in the insulation after installation.

An attic lacking sufficient insulation may allow cool air to escape and reach the rooms directly below. But with blown-in cellulose insulation services from one of our technicians, you can be well on your way to saving big on energy costs at home.

Other Benefits of Adding More Cellulose Insulation


Keep Saving Energy

Cellulose will not lose its energy-saving qualities over a long period of time, thanks to the material’s resiliency.


Cellulose Doesn't Settle

Properly installed cellulose installation also doesn’t settle over time. When other insulation settles, it may reopen gaps or other flaws in the seal between your home and outside.


Insulation that Doesn't Rot

Cellulose doesn’t rot or decay. It won’t support mold growth, and it won’t corrode steel, copper or aluminum.

How Much Insulation Do You Need in Your Attic?

Many homes don’t have enough insulation in their attic, especially when they want to fully prevent air from escaping the house. Any gaps or cracks compromise the seal and may impact your energy bills. And even if you do have blown-in cellulose, there are often cases where the original application just wasn’t enough. Visually, your current insulation might cover the entire surface of a wall, but you should also consider how deep the insulation goes. As you can imagine, thinner layers of insulation are less effective.

The amount you need also depends on the local climate and typical weather conditions. You need to measure the depth of your insulation with a ruler or measuring tape to see if the current thickness is sufficient. Northern climates, for example, usually need about 16-18 inches of insulation in order to truly be effective. If your home’s insulation falls short, it might be time to call the pros!
