Why Energy Smart Home Improvement Prefers Cellulose Insulation
Choosing an insulation material for your home improvement project involves weighing the pros and the cons of each. But for our money, cellulose insulation strikes the perfect balance for most South Central Pennsylvania homes, including Carlisle, Greencastle, York, and more.
Environmentally friendly—Made from recycled materials, cellulose is an eco-friendly insulation.
High R-value—Cellulose offers more stable indoor temperatures and enhanced home comfort.
Effective sound barrier—Because it dampens outdoor noise, cellulose offers increased privacy.
Affordable—Weighing price against R-value, there’s no better bang for your buck than cellulose.
Better indoor air quality—Cellulose is treated with borate to be resistant to harmful mold growth.
