If being green is important to you, you may want to consider installing cellulose insulation in your home. Made of up to 80 percent recycled material, cellulose is the most environmentally friendly type of insulation available.
Whether you need cellulose insulation for a new home being built or the home you’ve lived in for 15 years, it will help you increase your energy efficiency efforts. It’s installed as loose-fill / blown-in and has fantastic soundproofing abilities.
Benefits of Cellulose Insulation
Besides its soundproofing capabilities (cellulose is actually one of the best types of insulation for both outside and interior sound control), cellulose insulation offers a number of other benefits. It can:
- Help you lower your energy bills
- Make your home more comfortable year round
- Help reduce drafts in your home
- Improve the overall efficiency of your furnace and air conditioner
- Help the environment (decreased energy consumption reduces carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions)
High Energy Efficiency
Cellulose insulation not only is made of up to about 80 percent recycled content (primarily newspaper), but it takes less energy to make than other types of insulation. By using recycled paper, cellulose insulation helps prevent the release of greenhouse gas methane, which would occur if that paper were put into a landfill to decompose.
Did you know that if all the paper put into landfills every year were made into cellulose, it would save approximately 8 million tons of CO2 emissions?
