If your home isn’t as energy-efficient as it could be, you may need to install more insulation, which can help you save on your utility bills all year long. But there are several different types of insulation used in residential projects, so which one is the best for you? Which material should be installed in your home?

Those answers depend on several factors, mainly the area of your home you need to insulate. Cellulose insulation is widely used and offers a variety of benefits for homeowners. These include:

Energy Savings

By installing cellulose insulation in your home, you can save a lot of money every year. Insulation pays for itself in the long run and is a great way to maximize the energy efficiency and comfort of your home, no matter the season.

Home Comfort Levels

Cellulose insulation installation can help keep your home more comfortable, all year long. In the winter, insulation helps keep heat inside and in the summer, it keeps that warm air outside.

Sound Control

If outside noises seem louder than they should be, or if it feels drafty near the windows, it could indicate that your walls don’t have enough insulation. If you want to insulate for soundproofing purposes, cellulose is a great solution in our experience.

Environmentally Friendly Characteristics

Cellulose is also one of the most environmentally friendly insulation materials available. It’s made of up to 80 percent recycled material (mainly newspaper) and takes less energy to produce than other types of insulation.

The Cellulose Insulation Manufacturers Association (CIMA) estimates that installing cellulose insulation in a 1,500 square-foot house recycles the amount of newspaper a person throws away over a 40-year period!
