Today's consumers are very savvy when it comes to researching the insulation options available to them. CIMA believes that is a good thing when consumers can find factual information about insulation because it will show cellulose is superior to other types of insulation in terms of value, energy savings, performance and environmental benefits. It is equally important for construction industry professionals like architects, builders and insulation contractors to be knowledgeable about all the insulation products available to consumers.
