Here at 31-W Insulation, we offer a wide variety of insulation products designed to meet a variety of needs. One of our most popular insulation options is our cellulose insulation, and with good reason. In this article, we will go over some of the main advantages of cellulose insulation in order to help you decide whether it’s right for your application.
- Thermal Performance- First, the main requirement for any type of insulation is that it impedes the transfer of heat energy, and cellulose insulation serves this function very well. Our cellulose insulation is highly effective at keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter, in each case keeping heat energy on the correct side of your home’s walls.
- Sound Dampening- Another advantage of cellulose insulation is that it can significantly reduce the level of noise that makes its way into your home from the street. The reason why it is so effective at dampening sounds from outside is twofold– first, its loose-fill structure means it can pack into even the tightest corners, providing a seamless barrier against noise, and second, cellulose is generally denser than fiberglass insulation, which helps it dampen the sound even more.
- Fire Retardant- A third benefit of cellulose insulation is that much of it is treated to make it highly fire-retardant. This means that it can help keep your home safe from fires by confining flames to the area they started in and preventing flames from spreading from one part of the house to another.
