A home in Middle Island NY wanted to make their home more comfortable and efficient. The attic was filled with old fiberglass insulation. The insulation was no longer doing its job. The home was cold in the winter and too warm in the summer in the rooms below the attic. Triple H air sealed all penetrations on the attic flat and then blew in cellulose insulation. This home will now be more comfortable.
What is Cellulose insulation? Cellulose insulation is basically ground recycled paper treated with environmentally friendly chemicals, is also mold resistant, does not attract pests, and has the ability to muffle sounds making your home much quieter. Perhaps the most impressive quality of cellulose insulation is its fire resistance.
Choosing the right material for your home’s attic insulation can have a lasting impact on your comfort as well as your heating and cooling bills. Prior to choosing an insulation material, it is important to understand the properties of your attic insulation.
We prefer blown-in cellulose over fiberglass batts for several reasons. Cellulose insulation has a higher R-Value, it is a fantastic air blocker, reducing your air leaks. It is also less likely to hold moisture, it is "Green" and incredibly safe.
