Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose insulation is a popular and effective choice for insulating homes and buildings. It is made from recycled paper materials, making it an environmentally friendly option. Cellulose insulation is known for its excellent thermal performance, helping to keep homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

It is also highly effective at reducing noise transmission and improving indoor air quality by resisting mold and mildew growth. Additionally, cellulose insulation is fire-resistant, providing an added layer of safety for your property.

Here are considerable significant facts: cellulose insulation outperforms other insulations in certain key areas for you the homeowner. The goal is clear: unnaturally keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter ( opposing temperature of exterior climate ). Cellulose is the clear winner when all categories are considered.

Blow in Cellulose Insulation is covered by the American Society for Testing and Materials Standard Specifications (ASTM). The ASTM covers several material properties, including:

Blown In Cellulose Benefits

Cellulose is superior to other insulation materials and benefits and cons must be considered separately on each home project.

 Most general contractors advise their clients to make the switch to cellulose dense packed walls
 Significant difference is sound absorption / sound control
 Improved heat retention
 Heat protection from radiation (direct sunlight)
 Fire retardant / fire safety
 Pest and rodent resistant
 Mold, mildew and moisture resistance
 Dense packed insulation fills gaps and voids otherwise left open with fiberglass batts
 Cellulose Insulation prevents sagging at the top of the stud cavity
 Cellulose Insulation all-borate, liquid fire retardant is infused directly into the fibers, resulting in a more effective insulator at the price of competitive blended products
 Cellulose Insulation Blown In is the best method of insulation without removing drywall

Good for your home and environment!

Cellulose insulation has a functional lifetime of more than 50 years!

Blown in cellulose insulation is produced primarily from post-consumer wood pulp (recycled newspapers), typically accounting for roughly 85 % of the insulation by weight. Cellulose insulation is treated with fire-retardant. Borates and boric acid are used most commonly and account for the other 15 % of the cellulose insulation by weight.

Mold Resistance
Cellulose significantly decreases the risk of mold even beginning to form. Thanks to its chemical treatment, mold doesn't grow on cellulose insulation. Cellulose insulation absorbs moisture, redistributes it and lets the attic/wall/ceiling dry in a controlled manner.
Bug icon
Pest control
Cellulose insulation is pest-resistant insulation that is a great addition to your pest prevention plan. This insulation works on most common household pests such as cockroaches, ants, beetles, earwigs, silverfish, termites, etc.

Air / Vapor Barrier
Air infiltration is almost as important as R-value in the thermal performance of a building. Infiltration of unconditioned ambient air means that heating and cooling systems must expend more energy to compensate for the infiltration.
Speaker icon
Sound Control
Cellulose provides very effective sound control to minimize outside noises and between rooms (if the interior walls are insulated). Many people only focus on the energy savings that can be achieved with blow in cellulose insulation but overlook the benefits that come from improved sound insulation. If you have ever walked into a house that is not insulated you will immediately notice that noises from outside of the house are “louder” than in an insulated home.
Fire icon
Fire Resistance
Besides saving you money, cellulose insulation also provides extremely effective fire protection capabilities. Tests conducted by Underwriters Laboratories Inc.® show that Cellulose insulation provides an effective 1 hour fire rating. This will slow the spread of a fire allowing you more time to escape any danger. This is because cellulose is specially treated using Borate Compound Chemicals as a fire retardant in the manufacturing process to meet or exceed all fire safety requirements.

Energy Efficiency
Cellulose insulation improves the energy efficiency of your home by reducing heat transfer, keeping your space cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. With its high R-value, cellulose insulation helps to minimize energy consumption and lower utility bills.

Why Green Attic Uses Cellulose

Blow-in Cellulose Insulation is installed in empty spaces in the structural framing to slow down the transmission of heat out in winter and reduce drafts/cold. Cellulose Insulation is used to control heat flow for the following reasons:

Cellulose Home Durability Benefits

Cellulose insulation effectively eliminates cold spots, which can lead to condensation issues and the subsequent growth of mold and mildew. By preventing the formation of condensation, cellulose insulation safeguards the structural components and finish materials from staining and damage.

With its superior thermal performance, cellulose insulation ensures a consistent and comfortable indoor environment while protecting your property from the harmful effects of moisture.

Cellulose Comfort Benefits

• Cellulose insulation creates noticeably warmer surfaces, effectively reducing uncomfortable chills and drafts caused by both radiation and convection. By providing exceptional thermal resistance, cellulose insulation ensures a cozy and consistent temperature throughout your space, enhancing overall comfort and energy efficiency.

• Cellulose insulation acts as a reliable shield against overheating caused by excessive solar gains. By effectively blocking and reducing the transfer of heat from the sun into your living spaces, cellulose insulation helps maintain a comfortable and balanced indoor temperature. Say goodbye to the discomfort of sweltering hot rooms and enjoy a cooler and more enjoyable living environment with cellulose insulation.

Cellulose Energy Efficiency Benefits

• Insulating with Cellulose = Results: never before seen instant monthly energy savings which costs less as prices rise.

• Cellulose Insulation Creates Air Trapped Between Layers and divides the air space to reduce heat transfer in winter from the living side and heat intrusion from the attic side in summer.
