Stevens Home Improvement can discuss the energy efficiency and cost benefits of insulating your MA or RI home with blown-in cellulose insulation. As the most common building material in the world, the advantages of installing cellulose insulation in your home are many.
Properly insulation and air sealing of your home is one of the easiest, fastest, and most cost effective steps you can take to immediately reduce your home's energy usage and your heating and cooling bills. When you choose cellulose insulation for your home, you are getting great value and many benefits:
Features & Benefits of Blown-In Insulation
Highest R-value per inch
- Savings on energy costs.
Durable & long-lasting
- Greater energy efficiency.
Excellent fire retardant capabilities
- Makes home safer; fire retardant chemicals in cellulose also deters insects & rodents.
Effective sound insulator
- Natural sound barrier for a quieter home.
- Provides excellent moisture control; resists mold.
- One of the greenest building products in the world today.
Safe consumer product
- Cellulose is one of the few insulation materials that doesn't contain formaldehyde.
Cellulose Insulation Increases Energy Efficiency & Lowers Energy Bills
Dramatic improvements in the manufacturing of cellulose insulation and new installation techniques have made today's cellulose insulation an exceptional product that provides resistance to fire, moisture, mold, and vermin. No other insulation can claim these benefits and also provide the superior thermal and sound insulation that comes naturally to cellulose.
Cellulose has greatly improved in quality and is now fiberized (allowing for interlocking of the cellulose fibers) and densely packed into the walls of your home, ensuring that all cavities are completely filled without gaps, voids, or pockets.
Unlike the old cellulose, today's cellulose insulation remains under slight pressure in the wall cavity and doesn't settle or leave spaces inside the walls. This results in optimum energy efficiency, lower energy bills, and greater savings to the homeowner.
Cellulose Insulation Is Environmentally Friendly
Cellulose insulation is manufactured from material prepared from natural wood-based fibers and treated chemically so it resists corrosions and meets federal standards for flame resistance.
Cellulose is a naturally superior material for insulation. The long, inter-locking fibers of recycled newsprint resist settling and create an exceptional thermal barrier. Cellulose is a natural fiber and is produced using very little energy. Installing cellulose insulation is an environmentally friendly investment that will serve you well for years to come.
Blown-In Cellulose Insulation Is Easy To Install
Cellulose can be easily installed easily in your home's sidewalls, attic floors, basement ceilings, and in crawl spaces.
For old walls that are uninsulated, cellulose insulation can be installed by drilling the wall, blowing in the cellulose, and then plugging the hole. Cellulose insulation can also be easily installed in new construction units.
Cellulose insulation works well in retrofit attics because it is easy to install and provides a high thermal protection (R-value) per inch.
- Basement Ceilings:
Cellulose insulation can be used in insulating floor joists in unheated basements.
