Improve Your Home or Building’s Thermal Envelope with Dense Pack Cellulose
Dense pack cellulose stops air infiltration and offers excellent sound insulation. Air infiltration is reduced as the dense pack provides an effective air barrier, slowing down and in some cases stopping the overall movement of air through the buildings envelope. Studies have shown that up to 33% of a building’s air leakage, as measured with the blower door, can be eliminated using dense pack cellulose.
Cellulose insulation is made from recycled newspaper and reconstituted wood pulp. The material is treated with Borate, a naturally occurring mineral compound which greatly increases fire, moisture, mold and vermin resistance. Properly installed, cellulose insulation creates a thermal barrier far superior to traditional fiberglass or other insulations. Unlike most other installers, we are trained in the proper application of cellulose.
