Winter is in full swing in North and South Carolina. Now is an excellent time to evaluate the efficiency of your home. If you’re looking for an energy-efficient, money-saving upgrade, consider adding cellulose insulation to your home.
For Greenville, Asheville, and Hickory homeowners looking for an effective and eco-friendly insulation option, cellulose is a great idea. Cellulose is made from recycled newspaper and treated to be fire retardant. It’s becoming increasingly popular among green builders and building energy efficiency experts. This insulation type originated in the 1950s but didn’t come into full usage until the 1970s. Today, it is a very common insulation for residential applications. What about cellulose makes it a such a great choice?
Why Should I Use Cellulose Instead of Other Insulation Options?
There are a number of qualities that set cellulose insulation apart from other insulation options, including:
Consistent, Affordable High Performance
With an R-value of around 3.5 per inch, cellulose can significantly help boost your home’s energy efficiency. Homeowners can expect to achieve long-term cost savings from making this upgrade on monthly utility bills. Offering the best cost-to-benefit ratio for insulation, cellulose is a fantastic option for homeowners looking to save!
Cellulose is a great option for homeowners looking to make environmentally-friendly choices for their home upgrades. You can rest assured in the knowledge that your home efficiency is, in part, due to recycled materials.
Since the insulation is treated with borate, it is fire retardant. With a very high fire safety rating, cellulose insulation helps mitigate the likelihood of a house fire while improving home safety.
This insulation option is also minimally intrusive to install and can help reduce vapor permeability in your home. What’s not to love?

I first ran into Dean at a customer house several years ago. He was doing an energy audit where I was upgrading the HVAC system. Dean had recommended some upgrades to the home which greatly reduced the customer’s utility bill.
