Why Cellulose Attic Insulation?cellulos attic insulation
With superior product performance, cellulose attic insulation is the most environmentally preferable insulation types available on the market. Saving up to 25% on the heating bill, less carbon footprint, environmentally safe insulation and a well ventilated insulated attic will eliminate ice dams

When Cellulose is used, it creates a 100% seamless seal which makes a home 36% tighter than fiberglass batt. With its higher density and ability to seamlessly cover those difficult spaces like pipes, electrical wiring and other mechanical areas, you are getting excellent barrier to air flow, excellent sound insulation and excellent insulating properties even in the most difficult environments.

Eco Friendly Insulation
Cellulose is composed of 75-85% recycled paper fiber, usually post-consumer waste newsprint. The other 15% is a fire retardant such as boric acid or ammonium sulphate. Cellulose has the highest recycled content of any insulation available. For example, fiberglass has a maximum amount of 30% recycled content.

Thermal Performance
The thermal performance of loose filled cellulose compares favorably to other types of insulation. The thermal conductivity of loose-fill cellulose is approximately 40 mW/m?K (an R-value of 3.8 per inch).
Cellulose is very good at fitting around items in attics like pipes and wiring, leaving few air pockets that can reduce the overall efficiency of the attic.

Long-term cost savings
Cellulose's insulation qualities "can save homeowners 20 to 50 percent on their utility bills".

Low toxicity and environmental impact of raw materials
The non-recycled components of cellulose insulation are still environmentally preferable to the raw materials of most other insulation types, which are often petrochemical-based (this includes foam and fiberglass). Unlike foam insulations, many of which use HFC or HCFC blowing agents which have global warming potential hundred or thousands of times higher than that of carbon dioxide, cellulose does not produce significant gaseous emissions. Unlike fiberglass, cellulose does not use formaldehyde-based glues, which present a continuing hazard after installation due to off-gassing of formaldehyde.

Sound insulation
Noise reduction is achieved in three ways with cellulose. The first is that cellulose completely fills cavities leaving few air pockets for sound to travel in. The second is the cellulose materials ability to trap air. The significant difference between noise reduction with cellulose and fiberglass is its density. Cellulose is approximately three times denser then fiberglass. This helps deaden the sound through walls and between floor levels.

Fire retardation
The borate treatment gives cellulose the highest (Class I) fire safety rating. Many cellulose companies use a blend of ammonium sulfate and borate. Although ammonium sulfate is normally odorless, unexplained emission of ammonia and a resulting ammonia smell has been found in some cases. Numerous standard tests (ASTM E119 and NFPA 286) prove that cellulose is the most fire-resistant insulation commonly used in residential construction. In several demonstration burns, structures insulated with cellulose have remained standing while identical structures with fiber glass burned to ashes.
