Insulation is a crucial part of any building construction and maintaining temperature control inside is essential. One type of insulation that may be overlooked is cellulose insulation.
Cellulose insulation is a kind of plant based material that is used to fill empty spaces in the structural part of a house to inhibit the spread of heat or cold. Cellulose insulation is clumpy and dense, with a consistency of fine sand or down feathers. It’s main ability is that the insulation can fit in confined areas like walls, and can mold itself around objects that are typically found in homes such as wires, outlets, and ducts.
Cellulose insulation is considered an eco-friendly home product due to the fact that commercially available cellulose insulation is generally derived from wood like recycled newspapers, cardboard, office paper, and other common waste paper products.
Loose-fill cellulose is relatively inexpensive, yet still has an R-value of about 3.5 per inch of thickness, compared to fiberglass’ R-value between R3 to R4 per inch.
Cellulose insulation also stands up reasonably well against insects and vermin because it is treated with borates.
