Cellulose is a popular insulation material for modern homes. It’s made of recycled materials, offers a high R-value, reduces noise transmission, and features fire retardants to lower the spread of flames. If you’re a builder, contractor or architect working on new construction, cellulose is an easy choice for insulation.

Benefits of Cellulose Insulation
When it comes to choosing the right insulation for your new builds, make sure to go with top-tier materials that are made to last. Cellulose insulation offers a wide array of benefits, including:
Top Thermal Performance
Controlling the movement of hot and cold air into and out of a property is important for controlling the internal climate. Cellulose has a high R-value due to its density and material. This makes it harder for exterior air to infiltrate the property and keeps comfortable air inside the home.
Made of up to 85% recycled material, cellulose insulation is one of the most eco-friendly insulation products on the market. The manufacturing process for the product is also low-impact and the product is made regionally, lowering the distance it travels from the factory to the worksite. When cellulose insulation is removed, it is recycled again to ensure minimum environmental damage.
The Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of cellulose can be 0.8 or higher, making it a great absorber of sound. The Sound Transmission Class (STC) of cellulose can be up to 70, making for a great level of sound dampening between rooms.
Cellulose insulation is one of the very few building materials required to feature fire retardants to help slow the spread of fires. These chemicals typically add a one-hour fire rating which can be lifesaving.
Mold development within insulation can be a worry, but cellulose keeps moisture away, making it much harder for mold to develop.
Pass Along the Money-Saving Benefits of Cellulose
Property owners today want the most energy efficiency possible and cellulose offers it. This material is designed with the environment in mind, being made of recycled materials and providing the best insulating properties.
Cellulose insulation may also qualify homeowners for environmental rebates and tax credits. Most states throughout the US have incentive programs for homeowners who install eco-friendly, energy-efficient insulation. These programs often apply to new builds as well as retrofits.
