Our experts will guide you regarding the advantages involved with cellulose insulation.
One of the products we get asked about often here at Pisgah Insulation & Fireplaces is cellulose insulation. If you have been wondering about this product to determine if it would be a good option for your Asheville, North Carolina home or business, you should know there are many advantages involved. One of the most popular benefits of loose-fill cellulose insulation is that it has a similar R-value to materials that would be used in some areas.
Another benefit of cellulose insulation is that it can conform around obstructions, and since most attic spaces have HVAC equipment and other obstacles, this can be a huge advantage. In addition, since cellulose insulation is created from up to 85 percent recycled materials, it does have an eco-friendly component.
One of the most popular uses for cellulose insulation is to inject into finished or retrofit walls to avoid pulling down the drywall to install batts instead. This reduces your project cost tremendously, so you can enjoy the benefits of a more energy-efficient property while keeping within your budget. As for situations in which cellulose insulation is not advised, our experienced team will recommend a different insulation product in areas that are prone to moisture, as cellulose insulation tends to soak up water and takes quite a while to dry afterward.
