Benefits of Cellulose Insulation

     At Attic Experts, we specialize in blown-in cellulose insulation. Cellulose insulation is an efficient means to insulate a home without having to do extensive renovations, as it can be blown in over your existing insulation. Unlike fiberglass batts, Cellulose insulation is able to conform to any space, filling in all cracks and crevices creating a continuous protective blanket and ensuring you have a consistent R-value throughout the space.

     At the Attic Experts, we guarantee you are getting the R-value that you pay for! In addition to its energy lowering benefit, cellulose insulation is effective, safe, and environmentally friendly. Made of 85% recycled material, cellulose takes less energy to manufacture and has a lower carbon footprint than other insulation. Cellulose is also 57% more fire-resistant than most other types of residential insulation.



Thermal Resistance

    Cellulose insulation does NOT settle over time or lose its effectiveness. Cellulose is a denser material than fiberglass, making it more efficient at reducing air infiltration. Cellulose insulation insulates your attic by blocking airflow, while fiberglass insulation performs by trapping airflow. This is why it takes more fiberglass insulation to do the same job as a few inches of cellulose. Higher density cellulose insulation, blown over the top of the lower density fiberglass, actually causes the air movement to dramatically slow or STOP! You win with a quieter home, and an attic that is dramatically more airtight than it was, and a more comfortable home to enjoy year-around.

Nontoxic 

     Cellulose insulation is nontoxic. Most fiberglass materials have known carcinogens such as formaldehyde. Cellulose insulation is made from recycled paper, primarily newspapers. Boric acid, added as a fire retardant, is a common mineral, and six times less toxic than ordinary table salt. Actually, boric acid is the active ingredient found in many “over the counter” eye drops!  

Great Pest Control 

     The Borates in cellulose insulation not only inhibit the growth of mold and mildew, it is also effective for pest control, as the chemical is a natural compound that deters pests. Cellulose insulation actually repels and helps prevent infestations of bugs, roaches, rats, and mice. This prevents problems which come from unwanted pests resting or nesting in the insulation. Therefore, preserving the quality and efficiency of the cellular insulation for a longer time.

Eco-friendly 

     Cellulose insulation also has the lowest carbon footprint of all available insulation materials. Cellulose insulation requires less energy to produce and reduces the demand for new raw materials, leading to less waste in landfills. Cellulose insulation also has high heat resistivity, preventing heat transfer through ceilings, walls, and floors. This further reduces the energy consumed to heat and cool your home, which lowers your utility bills and reduces your home’s carbon footprint. The addition of cellulose insulation in your home not only increases your home's energy efficiency but also makes it more environmentally friendly.

    Cellulose helps keep your home warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer, blocks air infiltration, and saves you money!



Cellulose vs Fiberglass:  Which works better in your home? 

     Different insulations are made from fundamentally different materials. Tests at Oak Ridge and Brookhaven National Laboratories and the University of Illinois reveal that insulations with the same laboratory R-values do not perform equally in real homes. Researchers found that the effective R-value of blown fiberglass plunges during cold weather, while the effective R-value of cellulose actually increases. The researchers also discovered that summer temperatures offer no relief for fiberglass, since its effective R-value withers then, too.

Utility bills were 32% lower in the cellulose insulated building.

     Tests conducted by a fiberglass manufacturer reveal that the actual performance of fiberglass batts can be 14% to 45% less than their labeled R-value when gaps and voids associated with normal batt installation are considered. With cellulose insulation, you receive the insulation performance you paid for.
