EcoSmart – Cellulose Insulation Types
EcoSmart Home Services offers cellulose insulation in a variety of applications for homes and businesses throughout Connecticut. Cellulose insulation is made from recycled newspaper (treated with borate for fire resistance), so it’s a sustainable insulation solution with very low embodied energy. It also has a high R-value, has better thermal retention qualities than batt or blanket
insulation, and is an ideal material for energy retrofit installations (such as in attics and existing walls) because you can spray cellulose insulation.
Cellulose Attic Insulation
Cellulose is an ideal insulation material for many home insulation projects, especially attics. Since space constraints are typically not an issue, it’s a very simple process to install blown cellulose insulation to increase the R-value of your attic. This also happens to be one of the most cost-effective home energy efficiency upgrades that a homeowner can make (since hot air rises, air leaks and insufficient attic insulation represent a large portion of the typical home’s energy waste). At EcoSmart Home Services, we pair any attic insulation projects with air sealing
to minimize air leakage and maximize the effectiveness of the cellulose insulation that we install.
