Cellulose Insulation! Here Are Certain Things You Should Know

Jul 30, 2021 | Blog, Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose insulation can fit any enclosed space with ease, primarily because it is thick and dense. You can regard Cellulose insulation as an eco-friendly option. This is because it is usually made up of paper, or cardboard, or other recycled products.

There are two ways to fill the cellulose insulation into the wall or other similar structures:

Loose-Fill Cellulose Insulation

The first way is through loose-fill cellulose insulation, which involves drilling a space within the wall and using an insulation blower powered by a motor to fill the cavity and holes with cellulose while the cellulose is still dry.

Blown-In Cellulose Insulation

The second way, however, involves allowing moisture to fill the cellulose. The cellulose can then be blown straight into the walls. Cellulose insulation protects your home from insects as well.

Another advantage of loose-fill cellulose insulation is that it is much less costly than other types of insulation and can settle around and fill just about any space.

In most homes, insulating walls and attics require blown-in insulation, that is because other types of insulation would require opening your walls up. However, blown-in insulation does not have such requirements, which makes it the best choice for such situations.

It is a common misunderstanding that blown cellulose insulation is flammable. Before they install cellulose at your facility, they make sure to treat it with borates. Borates contain traces of boron, which make them fire retardant and inflammable.

Cellulose has the ability to trap air. It is also much denser than other insulation materials such as fiberglass. Due to its density and its ability to trap air, cellulose is soundproof.

Research has proved that cellulose insulation can help reduce your bills from twenty percent to up to fifty percent. If you want to have your house insulated and want to know more, our experts at Advanced Construction and Development are here to guide you. Contact us at (936) 521-2446.
