Can Insulation Be Reused?

At Overhead Door Co. of Indianapolis & Muncie, we are often asked if insulation can be reused. It’s understandable that homeowners want to save money when possible by only replacing damaged insulation, and simply reusing any insulation that is still in good condition. However, the answer to this question largely depends on the type of insulation at hand. Keep reading to learn more about the types of insulation that CAN, in fact, be reused.

Fiberglass Insulation

Fiberglass Insulation is one type of insulation that can be reused after initial installation. When installed by trained professionals, it can be easily removed and put back in place. It’s important to always hire a reputable insulation contractor to ensure proper installation and possible removal in the future.

Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose insulation consists of up to 80 – 85% recycled material. For Indianapolis homeowners who want to be environmentally-friendly, cellulose is the perfect choice of insulation material. And again, when installed by professionals, cellulose insulation can be completely recovered and reused on-site. Special machines are used in the blown-in process, allowing excess material to be vacuumed up and blown back in or salvaged for future projects.
