Cellulose Insulation

CelPaklogoNewThe Greenest choice to insulate your home.

 

Choosing the right insulation for your home or building is something that should be held to the highest standard. Most consumers have the common misconception that the higher the R-value the better the performance of the insulation.  Well…the truth is that is not always the case.  In fact each building is created different and the requirements will vary according to site, and current conditions of your home.  R-Value is a measure of a materials thermal conduction, and measures only one of the factors that determine how an insulation product will perform.  There are basically three choices of insulation for your home; fiber glass, cellulose and sprayed foam insulation.

More often than not our homes are poorly insulated and  have tons of gaps and penetrations leaking cold air in and hot air out, a buildings level of comfort is seriously comprised.  Heating & Cooling bills rise and  hard earned money goes to local utility companies.

Think of insulation as the extra blanket being thrown over your home to add the needed protection, comfort and acoustical barrier we need to achieve our maximum living potential.  It is in our best interest to choose a blanket or insulation that is highly efficient and also environmentally sound.  Health is a key factor in our productivity, cellulose insulation is the BEST AND MOST HEALTHY form of insulation out in the mark today.
