Our house uses cellulose insulation versus the conventional insulation because cellulose requires 16-17 times less energy to produce than fiberglass and over 60 times less energy than foam. Cellulose provides great R-value, fire resistance, and sound proofing, all at an affordable price, especially when considering how much it has reduced our PV array. National Fiber’s Cel-Pak cellulose is Eco-friendly, made of 83% recycled newspaper; borate and mineral oil, both safe and natural materials added for fire and pest control.
Here is a little educational video on National Fiber demonstrating the proper way to install blown-in cellulose insulation. Check out our students installing the cellulose! inside-out blog entry
