Cellulose insulation is made of up to 85% recycled material. It’s also safer to breathe in than some alternatives because it’s free from unhealthy substances like formaldehyde and asbestos.
The manufacturing process that turns newspaper into cellulose also uses a fraction (about 1/5) of the energy it takes to make alternative forms of insulation.
In addition to utilizing low-energy manufacturing, our cellulose supplier, Greenfiber®, sources its materials locally and operates using short-haul transportation.
While fiberglass is a component in various products ranging from automobile bodies to tent poles, it’s also effective as an insulator because it slows the spread of heat, cold, and even sound. More specifically, the glass fibers trap pockets of air, keeping rooms warm in the winter and cool in the summer, increasing a home’s energy efficiency
