Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose insulation is an eco-friendly and effective option that offers various benefits.

Cellulose insulation has excellent thermal performance, effectively reducing heat transfer between your home’s interior and the outside environment. This can lead to lower heating and cooling costs, resulting in energy savings over time. Cellulose insulation can be blown into cavities and crevices, effectively filling gaps and voids, which helps create a more airtight building envelope. This air sealing quality can further enhance energy efficiency by reducing drafts and heat loss. Proper installation is key to achieving its full benefits and maximizing its energy-saving potential. Consult with your local insulation specialists at RM Pena today to determine if Cellulose Insulation is a good fit for your home. 

What is Cellulose?

Cellulose insulation is manufactured from natural wood based fibers and treated non-hazardous boric acid, so that it meets federal standards for flame resistance and the ability to resist corrosion.
Generally, recycled newspapers constitute the basic raw material for cellulose insulation. it is an environmentally safe material, contains no asbestos, fiberglass, formaldehyde or mineral fibers. It is non-corrosive and helps dissipate moisture by evaporation before it can collect to damage framing members, plaster or paint.

How Does it Save You Money?

“R-Value” = Resistance Value Insulation effectiveness is measured by its resistance to heat flow either flowing out in winter or flowing in during the summer. The measurement of this effectiveness is called an “R” rating. The greater the R-value, the better the insulation. Our insulation has a higher R-value than most types of insulation materials. It gives you greater protection with less material.

Where is Cellulose applied?

Attics & Crawl Spaces A blown in loose fill application is used for attics and crawl spaces, creating a “blanket” on your ceiling. This keeps the warm or cool air in your home from escaping out of your roof.

Sidewalls Cellulose can be used in an uninsulated wall by drilling the wall, blowing in the cellulose and then plugging up the hole. In new construction, cellulose can be installed in the same manner to get a higher R-value than would be achieved by mineral fiber batts.
