Blown-in cellulose insulation Utah is a super-green option to energy efficiency
Cellulose insulation is an “environment-friendly” product due to the fact that it helps to conserve energy. Cellulose gains additional environment-friendly value because it’s made from recycled paper. As opposed to going into a garbage dump, aged paper is used in cellulose insulation as a long-term, energy-saving improvement. That’s a great idea!
Since there are around 60 suppliers of cellulose insulation, it’s a regionally produced item for many customers. After processing to change old paper into a cozy insulation that has an insulation value of up to R-4 per inch, the cellulose is treated with an organic boric acid option to make it immune to fire and unattractive to bugs. All producers of cellulose insulation should adhere to standards established by the Federal Customer Product Protection Payment to ensure top quality.
With blown-in cellulose, you can expect low to no out-of-pocket expense, excellent R-value and rapid setup
Although cellulose can be blown into stud bays and many other building cavities, it’s most frequent residential use is in unfinished attics. Large bags or bales of cellulose are packed into a blower unit located outside the home. The material is shredded and then blown into a long, flexible hose that transfers the insulation into the attic. The cellulose insulation can usually be blown directly over existing attic insulation, given the initial insulation is in good condition.
After the attic has been air-sealed to decrease cracks, it generally takes a day or less to complete an attic insulation upgrade using blown-in cellulose.
A cellulose insulation upgrade, in addition to air-sealing the attic, can reduce a residence’s heating and cooling prices by up to 40%. When completed, this “once-and-done” renovation will reduce home energy use as well a resident’s utility bills for many years to come. And when done by one of the authorized contractors, rebates from Questar Gas and Rocky Mountain Power will help reduce the cost the cellulose blown in your attic.
