Cellulose insulation is a win-win for homeowners

Every homeowner is concerned about the cost of heating and cooling their homes. In addition, more than ever they want to know about how their energy choices will effect the environment. Cellulose insulation is a win-win combining exceptional insulating characteristics with some of the highest Eco-Friendly benefits of any building product.

Properly insulating and air sealing your home is one of the quickest, easiest, most cost effective steps you can take to immediately reduce your heating and cooling bills. It’s also one of the quickest returns of investment for any home energy improvement.

When selecting insulation for your home, you want the best performing product available, and the one that provides you with the best value for your money. With cellulose Insulation you get both great value and great performance, including one of the highest R-values per inch, excellent fire retardant capabilities and exceptional sound control. In addition, cellulose has low embodied energy (that is the energy required to manufacture the material) and has 80% to 90% recovered content.

The CIMAC website provides information for comparing the performance and the environmental impacts of the most common insulation products available today. The goal is to help homeowners make the most informed decisions about how to select and use the right insulation to save money and improve the environment. In most cases, informed homeowners will find cellulose insulation is the best solution to accomplish these two critical needs for just about any insulation project.
