Cellulose insulation is a great option If you’re looking for a non-fiberglass alternative for your insulation needs. Made from recycled paper, it is ideal for filling closed walls or adding backup insulation to attics and other spaces.
Cellulose insulation is typically made from recycled newspapers and other paper products like cardboard and office paper. The paper is processed to reduce flammability, so it is safe to use as building insulation
Cellulose insulation can be used similarly to how blown-in fiberglass insulation is used, with the ability to have it blown into nearly any space or dense packed into closed spaces. Loose fill cellulose insulation provides an effective insulation method for attics, either as primary insulation or as a second layer over aging or poorly installed fiberglass batt insulation. The blown-in cellulose insulation fills irregular spaces with ease. Cellulose insulation can also be dense packed into closed cavities.
One of the primary benefits of cellulose insulation is that it fits easily into tight corners and readily fills small gaps. Loose fill cellulose insulation fills in small spaces, creating a full insulating blanket. This helps improve your home’s energy efficiency and cut down on your utility bills.
