Insulation is one component of your home's building envelope, which includes all the structure and material that make a barrier between the interior of your home and the natural elements. Doors and windows, exterior walls, and insulation all work together to keep buildings warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Weatherizing—plugging gaps, stopping air leaks, and insulating— will improve your homes ability to save energy.
Comfort cellulose insulation has several advantages when compared to other forms of insulation. The most important advantage of cellulose insulation is its high thermal resistance which translates to money savings for you. It is also the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly insulation available.
Comforts cellulose insulation is 3 times denser than traditional fiberglass insulation. Researchers have found that a structure insulated with cellulose uses 26% less energy than a structure insulated with fiberglass.*
Cellulose insulation is usually blown directly into attic ceilings, walls and floors, allowing it to reach nooks and crannies that would otherwise go uninsulated. Fiberglass however, is generally sold in rolls that are difficult to apply in these areas.
