Do you need to install cellulose insulation in your home or commercial building? If you’re looking for cellulose insulation contractors in the Elmhurst, Illinois area, ThermaSeal / Lakeside Insulation has you covered.
Cellulose is typically installed as dry loose-fill / blown-in, and it can be used to insulate many different areas of your home—attics, walls, basements and crawl spaces. Made of up to 80 percent recycled material (mostly newspaper), cellulose is also one of the most environmentally friendly types of insulation available.
A Closer Look at Cellulose Insulation
In addition to its environmentally friendly characteristics, cellulose insulation offers a number of benefits for homeowners and business owners. Cellulose insulation can:
- Help you save on your energy bills
- Make your home or building more comfortable year round
- Reduce outside noises and noises between different levels and rooms inside (cellulose is one of the best types of insulation for soundproofing)
- Help improve the overall efficiency of your furnace and air conditioner
- Promote a healthier environment (reduced energy consumption leads to lower levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions)
If you already have some insulation installed in your Elmhurst home or building, cellulose insulation can be blown over top of it to increase the R-value and overall performance. Note: if the existing insulation has deteriorated or is damp or moldy, it may be necessary to remove it.
Unmatched Energy Efficiency
Cellulose insulation is appealing to many people due to the fact that it’s the most environmentally friendly type of insulation. It is actually one of the greenest building products in the world.
Cellulose is made of recycled newspaper and other paper sources—materials that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill, releasing greenhouse gases as they decomposed. In fact, if all the paper put into landfills every year were made into cellulose insulation, it would save about eight million tons of CO2 emissions!
Not only that, cellulose takes less energy to make than other insulation materials and has the highest amount of recycled materials of any insulation product.
By installing the right amount of cellulose insulation, not only will you help your wallet but you’ll also do your part to help the environment!
