Dense Pack Cellulose Insulation in (VT) Vermont
Dense pack cellulose is used as an effective air barrier to reduce air infiltration and provide excellent sound insulation. Studies have shown that up to 33% of air leakage in a home or commercial building is eliminated with the use of dense pack cellulose insulation. It slows down, and in some cases, stops the overall movement of air through a building’s thermal envelope.
Carbon Conscious Insulation
Cellulose insulation is contrived from old newspaper and reconstructed wood pulp. This combination of materials is then treated with a naturally occurring mineral compound called Borate which significantly improves resistance to fire, moisture, mold, vermin and more. 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.
