Cellulose Attic Insulation

 

cellulose2A major advantage of cellulose insulation for your attic is that it is made of at least 80% post-consumer recycled newspapers. It is the industry’s most recyclable product, making it an important one for reducing your home’s carbon footprint. By increasing insulation in your attic, in particular with the cellulose variety, you can expect to save on utility bills far into the future. That is, when it is installed properly to maximize the benefits. A proper install by our team gets you the R-value you want; the higher the R-value, the greater the heat flow resistance, which lowers your energy costs. The average R-value for cellulose is 3.5 per inch of thickness. The “green” material is fire retardant as it is treated with borates, so don’t worry about any fire hazards (provided you get an expert installer). Cellulose attic insulation also deters insects and vermin because of the borates treatment. In your attic, given it is a closed-in space, we must blow in the insulation. We have the special equipment to do so properly and understand best safety practices. The cellulose variety is a popular insulation choice for attics because of its ease of install and as it easily conforms around wires, pipes, and other obstructions. We blow in the insulation with a hose to close any gaps and can cover existing insulation. The complete insulation layer can lower your energy costs and increase your environmental efforts. However, the performance of the cellulose attic insulation depends on the work performance during install. We offer a top-quality install that surpasses your expectations.
