Cellulose Insulation Saves Energy And Money Lost Through Roofs

A study conducted by the University of Colorado School of Architecture shows that Cellulose insulation provides a more effective barrier against air infiltration than traditional insulation materials, one of the key factors in preventing energy loss.

In cold weather, research by the Oak Ridge Research laboratory shows that the effective R-value of fiberglass drops as the differential between indoor and outdoor temperatures gets larger.


Six inches of blown in Cellulose insulation is all it takes to prevent the loss of heat due to air convection versus fiberglass alone. Even if you have fiberglass installed in your attic, you can improve its performance by providing a “cap” of Cellulose insulation six inches deep, which will save you money on your utility bills.
