Types of Insulation: Blown in CELLULOSE
There are various types of insulation that can be used to insulate your home. One of the most popular options is Cellulose, or blown-in thermal insulation, which is made from recovered newspaper. This recycled product is the most popular choice with environmentally-conscious customers. Cellulose insulation is one of the greenest building products in the world. If all the newspaper currently being put into landfills each year was converted to cellulose insulation, it would save approximately eight million tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
- Cellulose fiber insulation has a highly efficient thermal barrier which is measured in R-value per inch; R-value means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the material’s insulating capacity. This type of insulation has an R-value of around 3.6 to 3.8.
- It is permanently fire resistant, with superior flame retardant qualities.
- Cellulose fiber insulation is non-corrosive and will not adversely affect any known type of building material.
- It is non-irritating to the skin, and is not linked to health problems. It contains no formaldehyde, no asbestos, and no glass fibers.
- It has the highest recycled content of all common insulating materials, and thus helps the environment.
- The millions of microscopic air cells in cellulose insulation help dissipate moisture by evaporation before it can collect and damage framing members, plaster, or paint.
The Zone Defense additive kills common household pests that may infest insulation, such as cockroaches, ants, earwigs, silverfish, crickets, darkling beetles, sow bugs, centipedes, millipedes and booklice.
Types of Insulation: L77 Blown in FIBERGLASS
Owens Corning FIBERGLAS™ loose fill insulation products are thermal tested and labeled in strict accordance with current ASTM loose fill standards.
No settling or deteriorate with age, so there’s no danger of losing R-value* over time.
Noncorrosive – Doesn’t require fire-retardant chemicals which can leach out, promoting corrosion of pipes, electrical equipment or structural metal attachments.
Noncombustible– Meets all model building codes for no combustibility.
