WHAT iS
AiR SEALiNG?

Spray polyurethane foam insulation, more commonly referred to as spray foam insulation, servers as an air barrier by effectively sealing spaces and enhancing energy efficiency. It has become a popular retrofitting solution for residential and commercial buildings by revolutionizing the total comfort and functionality by controls moisture levels, prevents the entry of pollutants, allergens and insects, improves air quality for indoor spaces, and reduces energy loss, leading to cost savings for consumers.

HOW iS CELLULOSE
iNSULATiON iNSTALLED?

Blown-in cellulose is installed by blowing thousands of tiny pieces of paper into the walls or attics of a building. By using special equipment, we can spray cellulose into difficult to reach areas, fill voids that need insulation, and install blown-in cellulose to various thicknesses.

FIBERGLASS VS. CELLULOSE KEY DiFFERENCES

Fiberglass and cellulose are made of different materials. Fiberglass is made of glass fibers, typically available in blanket-like batts or loose-fill, chopped up pieces that can be blown in place, and cellulose is made of chopped up recycled paper that is blown in place. Both materials offer insulation value and thermal efficiency benefits, but there are some differences based on the materials that we offer.

FiBERGLASS iNSULATiON

Fiberglass insulation is a popular choice due to its versatility, cost-effectiveness, and exceptional longevity.

  • Average cost: $0.9 - $1.50 / sq. ft.
  • The R-value of loose-fill fiberglass is R-2.2 to 2.7 per inch.
  • Lifespan: 80 to 100 years.
  • Cellulose has a lower heat flow resistance.

CELLULOSE iNSULATiON

Cellulose insulation combines affordability, efficiency, and durability.

  • Average cost: $0.91/ sq. ft.
  • The R-value of blown in cellulose is R-3.2 to 3.8 per inch.
  • Lifespan: 20 to 30 years.
  • Cellulose has higher heat flow resistance.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTiONS

This type of home insulation refers to thick clumps of thick material filling the gaps in walls and on attic floors to improve heat exchange in your building.

The best products are made of recycled paper materials, such as newspaper or cardboard. Other materials are made of glass or waste minerals.

Yes, because it fills in gaps better and has a higher R-value. Cellulose insulation carries an R-value of 3.8 per inch, while batts and rolls typically have an R-value of 3.2 per inch. This means that the more inches of insulation you add, the better it insulates versus the same thickness of batts or rolls.

Yes, many types of insulation contain borate, which has fire-resistant properties. The best blow-in insulation brands have a Class A fire rating, which is the best rating you can find for reducing the spread of fire. This rating means a type of insulation withstands fire than other classifications.

Yes, the U.S. government has certified that borate is safe when used as part of home or commercial insulation.
