Sacramento Blown-In Cellulose Insulation Installers

Cellulose is made from recycled newsprint and other recycled paper. Consisting of up to 80% to 85% recycled content and requiring less energy to make than other types of insulation, it’s one of the most environmentally friendly insulation materials available.

Loose-fill cellulose insulation in Sacramento homes is ideal for insulating your attic or walls. It can help:

  • Reduce your utility bills and maximize the energy efficiency of your home or building
  • Make your home or building more comfortable year-round
  • Reduce noises from outside and from inside your home or building between different rooms and levels
  • Improve the performance of your air conditioner and furnace

Cellulose Insulation R-Value

The R-value or cellulose or any other insulation is a basic measurement of an insulation material’s heat resistance. The Sacramento insulation installers at Gold Star Insulation can help you determine how much insulation you need, based on:

  • Your HVAC systems
  • The size of your home
  • Where you need to insulate

Cellulose vs. Fiberglass Insulation

Often, we are asked the difference between fiberglass and cellulose insulation. Fiberglass insulation and cellulose insulation have some similarities. Both have good soundproofing qualities and can be blown into walls, attics, basements and crawl spaces. But they do have several differences:

  • Cellulose consists of organic material, mainly newspaper, while fiberglass is made of mostly synthetic material.
  • The pink insulation you have probably seen in your home or someone else’s is generally fiberglass; cellulose tends to be darker in color.
  • Cellulose is considered one of the most environmentally friendly insulation materials available; the recycled content of fiberglass is lower.
  • The R-values for cellulose and fiberglass are different.

Cellulose vs. Spray Foam Insulation

Wondering whether you should install cellulose or spray foam insulation? Here is some information on both types of insulation:

  • Spray foam insulation: This is a spray-applied cellular polyurethane foam that’s pumped into your walls and comes in two varieties, closed-cell and open-cell. Spray foam is typically more expensive than other types of insulation.
  • Cellulose insulation: Cellulose is loose-fill insulation made from chopped-up, discarded newsprint. Like spray foam, it’s able to work its way into hard-to-reach areas. Cellulose is also the most environmentally friendly type of insulation.
