At R3.6 to 3.8 per inch, cellulose insulation is considerably better than most mineral fiber blowing wools. But, R-Value is only ONE factor in the energy efficiency of a home. Studies of actual buildings regularly show that cellulose-insulated buildings may use 20% to 40% less energy than buildings with fiberglass, even if the R-value of the insulation in the walls and ceilings is identical.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image][vc_custom_heading text=”Cellulose Insulation Tops Fiberglass in Safety”][vc_column_text]It is a known fact that all residential structures contain large amounts of wood. Cellulose insulation is the only wood-based building material that is always treated for fire retardancy. This precaution makes cellulose insulation one of the safest materials used in home construction.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Cellulose Insulation Tops Fiberglass in Conforming to House Design”][vc_column_text]If a fire occurs, the dense structure of cellulose and its fire retardants slow the spread of fire through the building by blocking flames and hot gases while restricting the availability of oxygen in insulated walls and ceilings. Scientists at the National Research Council Canada report that “cellulose in the wall cavity provided an increase in the fire resistance performance of 22% to 55%.” Fire roars right through fiberglass.

Cellulose insulation flows around obstructions and penetrates odd-shaped cavities, completely filling the voids. This system provides a superior monolithic blanket of insulation, resulting in a tighter and quieter finished home construction. Cellulose Insulation effectively reduces energy costs by conforming to the space where it is applied – even around wires, electrical boxes and pipes causing fewer leaks, fewer drafts and lower heating/cooling costs![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Cellulose Insulation Tops Fiberglass in Infiltration”][vc_column_text]

[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Cellulose Tops Fiberglass by Providing a Superior Sound Barrier”][vc_column_text]Cellulose Insulation is two to three times denser than similar fiberglass products. When installed, cellulose insulation completely eliminates voids and gaps blocking the avenue for sound travel. In open attics, Cellulose Insulation molds around irregular construction and stays in place, eliminating potential leaks for sound transmission. By keeping the walls, ceilings and floors airtight, sounds are greatly restricted. Traffic noise, airplanes, radios, televisions and conversations will be controlled, providing a more comfortable atmosphere inside your home for your family to enjoy.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Cellulose Insulation Tops Fiberglass in Standards”][vc_column_text]Cellulose Insulation is covered by the American Society for Testing and Materials Standard Specifications (ASTM). The ASTM covers several material properties, including:

R-Value
Flame spread
Smoldering combustion
Density
Corrosiveness
Odor emission
Moisture vapor absorption
Fungi resistance
Adhesive/cohesive strength (spray on only)
