Wet Spray Cellulose Insulation, A Cost-Effective and Environmentally-Conscious Option - Boston, Worcester, MA

8 March 2016 Bookmark and Share

Wet spray cellulose insulation can be installed in the walls and ceiling of both residential and commercial buildings. The cellulose material used in this type of insulation is made of recycled paper. Because it is sourced in the recycling arena, this alternative insulation is not just cost-effective, it is also an environmentally-conscious option.

Wet spray cellulose insulation is exactly as it sounds. The recycled paper that makes up this material is treated before being used as insulation. When sprayed into the cavity of a building, this loose-fill insulation is slightly damp and requires the expertise of a custom insulation specialist to ensure that the material is placed in the right spot to ensure that the cavity is effectively sealed.

Wet spray cellulose insulation in Boston, MA is typically installed in a wide range of densities depending on the specific needs of the application. The R-value of wet spray cellulose is roughly 3.2 per inch, which is higher than that of standard fiberglass which only has an R-value of 2.2 per inch. This means that you will need a lesser amount of cellulose insulation in order to achieve the same R-value of fiberglass required in your building.
