Cellulose insulation is manufactured from recycled materials. Its fine particles make it fire retardant, allow it to repel insects and rodents, and help to prevent the growth of mold.
This type of insulation is installed using a machine to fluff the cellulose material while blowing it through a hose to the desired location. When properly installed, it will provide superior air sealing which improves air quality due to the tighter seal.
It can be open-blown into attics or dense-packed into attic floors, rafters, and walls. It can be used in new construction as well as in existing homes. Adding cellulose over existing insulation that has become deficient will fill in any voids and provide additional R-Value.
