Cellulose insulation is the perfect choice for Brooklyn, Staten Island, Long Island, and Queens, NY homeowners looking to save energy and money. As homeowners look to maximize their energy savings and home comfort, cellulose insulation installed by NYS Energy Audits is an excellent solution for many reasons.
What Are the Benefits of Cellulose Insulation?
Most people are familiar with the spray foam insulation that’s so common in attics in our area, but spray foam is not the most effective option. We prefer cellulose insulation because it has many features that spray foam does not. Top cellulose insulation benefits include:
- Environmentally friendly — Cellulose is made from recycled wood fibers, including old newspapers and other plant-based materials.
- Non-toxic — Recycled cellulose insulation contains no harmful chemicals.
- No gaps or voids — Continuous insulation is one of the top performance benefits over spray foam insulation Cellulose insulation is blown into attic and wall spaces and fills the cavity completely, providing an effective barrier to heat transfer.
- Fire retardant
- Insect Repellent
Cellulose Insulation Is Safe
Cellulose blown-in insulation is treated with borate, a safe, non-toxic fire repellent to keep your family safe. Borate also plays double duty as an insect repellent to keep your attic and wall spaces insect free.
The Importance of Air Sealing
Cellulose insulation performs best when paired with effective air sealing. Air sealing combined with cellulose insulation acts like a windbreaker over a warm sweater to keep your home cozy. The insulation pros at NYS Energy Audits can pinpoint the tiniest air leaks during a comprehensive home energy audit. Once spotted, leaks can be sealed before installing new cellulose insulation.
