Cellulose insulation is made up of recycled materials, namely recycled newspaper that has been treated with a fire retardant. The insulation is blown into wall cavities, attics, and floors to regulate indoor air quality and temperature. It has the highest amount of recycled content of any insulation material, making it one of the best choices for environmentally-friendly insulation.
At Creative Conservation, we use a stabilized blown-in cellulose that contains a slight moisture content. The moisture helps control dust and is particularly useful in horizontal applications, such as attics. Once applied, our professionals allow the moisture to dry to the specific point where it is safe to be covered by drywall.
Some benefits of residential cellulose insulation include:
- 80-90% recycled materials
- Highest R-value per inch
- Fire retardant capabilities
- Moisture control
Stabilized cellulose is very dense, so a little goes a long way. This works to your benefit if you're looking for a less expensive, yet effective way to insulate your home.
