Cellulose Insulation Installation In The Midlands

An alternative to fiberglass, Tru-Soft cellulose is a green, efficient, solution that's worth considering.

If you are looking for a quick, easy solution to reduce your heating and cooling costs, there is no better, faster way to achieve this than properly insulating and air sealing your home; however, it’s important to remember that not all insulation is created equal.

Not all “green” insulation products are created equal

Tru-Soft™ cellulose insulation is the most environmentally-friendly product in the insulation industry. Houses insulated with this “super-green” material typically require between 15 to 30 percent less energy to heat and cool the space than homes insulated with fiberglass batts. If you live in an area with a community-based recycling program, then it’s possible that the newspaper that you read last month has now become insulation in someone’s home. Cellulose insulation is made of 85 percent recycled paper products, which reduces greenhouse gases by preventing the paper from ending up in landfills.

Building insulation in general is considered “green,” because it helps cut down on wasted energy, reduces the amount of fossil fuel that is burned and decreases harmful carbon emissions.

The energy-saving properties of cellulose begin from the time the product is manufactured. It takes less energy to make cellulose than any other type of insulation. Manufacturing fiberglass for a home consumes six times more energy than manufacturing cellulose to insulate the same home at the same R-value. The reclaimed paper, like the kind that comes from your home or office, is collected and processed in a grinding machine that then produces a fluffy, lightweight material. Even better, the cellulose has an insulation value as high as R-4 per inch – that’s a lot of heat flow resistance!

Additives make paper-based insulation resistant to fire, insects and mold

Cellulose does not contain dangerous substances commonly found in building materials, including formaldehyde, volatile organic compounds, and glass fibers.

Despite being made of paper, the belief that cellulose insulation is flammable is false. The building insulation has a Class 1 (the highest) fire safety rating and is approved by all building codes. The cellulose is treated with a borate solution that makes the fibers not only fire resistant, but will also repel insects and mold.

Don’t just settle – choose the Tru-Soft cellulose insulation that meets your needs

All Tru-Soft cellulose insulation is “green” and all will make it easier to heat and cool your home and reduce energy bills, but when it comes to your unique space, some will do the job better than others.
