Frequently Asked Questions

What is cellulose home insulation?

Is cellulose home insulation safe?

Cellulose insulation is safer than batt insulation, particularly fiberglass insulation. Even more importantly, this type of insulation can be added to your Colorado home without taking off wallboard or plaster. You may want to create a gaming room and movie space or protect the rest of your home from the sound of your washer and dryer. Simply get the wall between gaming room and the rest of your home filled with insulation.

Cellulose (loose) insulation vs fiberglass (batt) insulation?

Cellulose or loose insulation is blown into wall cavities with tools that keep the insulation fluffy. It’s the air gaps between the pieces of insulation that help your home maintain a consistent temperature inside. Unlike fiberglass insulation, cellulose wall insulation can be put inside an existing wall.

Is cellulose or shredded insulation energy efficient?

Cellulose insulation in Denver is very effective at increasing the energy efficiency of your home. Even better, much of this insulation can be created from recycled materials and is treated with mold inhibitors and flame prevention before it’s placed inside your walls. You can reduce paper, wood or fabric waste that would otherwise be sent to a landfill and enjoy a warmer home all winter long.
