Can Insulation Be Reused?

Do you need to insulate your home? Are you wondering if insulation can be reused instead of going to waste? Some types of insulation are recycled. Cellulose is one such material.

For those who want to stay as environmentally as possible, installing cellulose insulation is the way to go. When installed by professionals, it is completely recovered and reused on site, leaving hardly any excess material to go to waste. In fact, there isn’t much discarded material. Special machines used in the blown-in process allow extra material to be vacuumed up and blown back in on site or salvaged for future installation.

The fact that cellulose is recycled isn’t the only reason it’s the greenest insulation material available.

How Else Is Cellulose Environmentally Friendly?

Cellulose insulation:

  • Consists of up to 80 – 85 percent recycled material.
  • Takes less energy to make than other insulation materials.
  • Is made from consumer paper products, which are tied to responsible forestry management and a renewable resource of planted trees.

Any insulation material will help you reduce your energy bills and the carbon footprint of your home (which has a positive impact on the environment), but if you want the most eco-friendly insulation, cellulose is the one you should install.

Reusing Fiberglass Insulation

Fiberglass insulation can also be reused after the initial installation and is recyclable. It can be removed easily and put back in place. Fiberglass can also be reclaimed from demolition debris and recycled into a new product.

Although it’s not as environmentally friendly as cellulose, fiberglass insulation still contains a relatively high amount of recycled content and is very effective at helping you save money and live more comfortably.
