Energy-efficient insulation upgrades to your home is one of the few investments that provide an instant return on investment. Your energy bills will go down. Of course the climate and your environmental control programming all get a vote, but rest assured, a well-insulated home is significantly more cost effective than those which are not.
So, regarding cellulose insulation, its ability to fill small cracks allows for more insulation coverage without disturbing your home structure. For this reason, it is a very common insulation product of choice in residential structures, especially older ones. Below we’re going to discuss some ways to get the most out of your spray cellulose insulation.
Since it comes from recycled paper consisting primarily of newspaper or other appropriate paper, cellulose insulation is the least polluting and most energy-efficient insulation. Wet Spray Cellulose comes at a low cost and high benefit which stops heat loss in your home and airflow in your walls thereby saving energy while doing so. Mostly the common places to install cellulose are enclosed spaces such as walls and open space like the attic. It is versatile in its ability to effectively insulate in all different kinds of places. Many people find it the best environmentally-conscious option of insulating because it is treated with boric acid before use as insulation. Thereby it increases fire resistance, resists mold, and makes it unpleasant to insects. Being eco-friendly, cellulose insulation helps reduce the mountains of discarded paper and cardboard as well.
The R-value of cellulose is higher than that of a standard fiberglass. Moreover, wet spray cellulose insulation is treated with an acrylic binder which ensures full guarantee when installed. Since the newspaper is often the biggest component of waste in many communities, cellulose takes this waste and recycles it to insulate your home. This ended up reducing the negative impact on the environment. To make cellulose and other wood-wastes they are treated with fire retardants to protect the insulation from flames. Hence before the cellulose enters your walls or attic it helps save energy which ultimately saves you energy.
