Blown in cellulose is a highly effective, environmentally friendly insulation solution. Made from recycled newspaper and treated with borate for fire retardance, the even distribution of blown in cellulose insulation makes for a high performance insulation that has come into increasing favor among green builders and building energy efficiency experts. A few reasons we like blown in cellulose insulation:
Cellulose is made from recycled newspaper, so it's an earth-friendly insulation solution. You can also rest assured that it's a safe product to have in your house -- no formaldehyde, no harmful chemicals.
CONSISTENT HIGH PERFORMANCE
Because cellulose is blown into cavities as small particles rather than installed in batt form, it's far less likely to come with gaps and air leaks around the edges. This means that you get consistent high performance - for a cozier, more energy efficient home.
Cellulose is treated with the flame retardant borate, which is highly effective at slowing down the spread of fires. A house that is insulated with blown in cellulose insulation is safer from a fire-hazard standpoint than an uninsulated house.

Looking for Duct Sealing? Did you know...
There is a substantial amount of energy loss when your HVAC system works overtime to make up for leaks and gaps in your ductwork. In addition to increased energy bills, the unnecessary strain on your system can significantly shorten its lifespan or lead to costly repairs. Air duct leaks can also create indoor air quality issues by allowing dust, allergens, and other pollutants easy access to the air circulating through your home. Having properly sealed ducts keeps these pollutants out of the air you breathe and balances temperatures, leaving your home feeling more comfortable.
