Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose insulation can be blown into attics and sprayed into the wall cavities of a home to improve thermal efficiency and serve as a sound barrier. As a result, cellulose reduces air leakage, since it plugs difficult-to-reach spaces, eliminating gaps and voids. Since it is made primarily of recycled newsprint, cellulose insulation is an environmentally-friendly insulation option. The fibers are impregnated with fire retardant chemicals to provide fire resistance. Spray-applied and loose-fill cellulose can have an R-value of 3.7 per inch.
