CIMA Extreme Retrofit Winner Susan Heath

Every homeowner is concerned about the cost of heating and cooling their homes. In addition, we know more than ever about how the energy choices we make effect the environment.

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 CIMA website provides information for comparing the performance and 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.

The Cellulose Insulation Manufacturers Association is your one-stop online information source. Homeowners can also find tips on insulation, green building trends and even opportunities to win at CIMA's Greenest Insulation Blog.
