BENEFITS OF CELLULOSE INSULATION
Cellulose insulation, particularly if it’s made from recycled paper, has the most post-consumer recycled content and takes about a tenth of the energy to manufacture as opposed to fiberglass. The effectiveness of fiberglass also drops significantly along with temperatures, while cellulose actually becomes more effective during cold weather.
Here are some other benefits of cellulose:
- Cellulose will not lose its energy-saving qualities over a long period of time
- Properly installed cellulose installation will not settle
- Cellulose will not rot or decay and doesn’t support mold growth
- It won’t corrode steel, copper, or aluminum
There are also no known health risks associated with cellulose insulation. The same cannot be said for fiberglass. Make sure your family stays safe and comfortable throughout the year with cellulose insulation.
BLOWN-IN ATTIC CELLULOSE INSULATION
If you want to make sure there are no gaps within the insulation in your attic, blown-in cellulose insulation is the way to go. This insulation method requires using a device that takes small pieces of cellulose from a bag and blows them toward the area that needs insulation. This allows for maximum coverage so that the cellulose can reach every nook and cranny in your attic. It’s a far better method than hauling batts of fiberglass into your attic and tediously cutting them to size, which may result in poor measurements and gaps in the insulation.
An attic that isn’t insulated properly could allow cool air to reach the rooms directly below. The best way to get optimum insulation and coverage is by conducting blown-in cellulose insulation service. Hire one of our technicians to perform the task and you can be on your way to saving on energy costs in your home.
HOW MUCH INSULATION DO YOU NEED IN YOUR ATTIC?
Many homes don’t have enough insulation in their attic to prevent air from escaping the house. Any gaps or cracks can compromise the environment in a home and impact your energy bill. If you have blown-in cellulose, it might cover the entire surface, but you have to consider how deep the insulation goes. The more shallow your layer of insulation, the less effective it will be. The amount you need also depends on your region. You can use measuring tape or ruler to determine the depth of your insulation. Northern climates such as ours need about 16-18 inches of insulation in order to truly be effective. If your insulation is short of this measurement, it might be time to call for help.
