Coler Natural Insulation provides cellulose insulation services for homeowners in the Upstate New York area. Cellulose insulation is a great option for those who are looking for a less expensive insulation cost that is Eco-friendly and often made from recycled paper or denim, which accounts for 75% to 85% of the insulation’s composition. Cellulose insulation is a very popular insulation for those who want the benefit of noise dampening.
Why Use Cellulose?
- It has more recycled material than any other insulation.
- No greenhouse gases are used as propellants.
- It is a great inexpensive option.
- Boric acid, borax or aluminum sulfate in cellulose makes this option resistant to fire, mold, and pests.
Cellulose Installation Services
What does the cellulose installation process look like? Cellulose can either be blown-in in a loose-fill or dense pack. A machine is used to blow in the dry cellulose to the desired area for insulation. At the end of the hose where the cellulose leaves the machine, small spray nozzles dampen the cellulose, causing it to stick. This allows the cellulose to be packed in tight.
Usually, the presence of moisture in insulation installation causes concern, but not for Cellulose. Using moisture in the application phase does not negatively affect cellulose insulation, as it would fiberglass, because of the nature of cellulose’s composition. First, the amount of moisture used for the installation phase is usually dried up after a day or two. Secondly, cellulose is constantly picking up moisture and letting moisture go, much like how a towel can absorb moisture, and then dry out.
