Benefits Of Paulsen Insulation
Energy Star® Rated
As a government backed program, Energy Star® assists homeowners in protecting the environment through superior, energy efficiency; products designed to conserve energy feature the Energy Star Logo. Our cellulose insulation has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to carry the Energy Star Logo. According to the EPA, when insulation is installed according to Energy Star guidelines, it can save you energy and money.
Environmentally Friendly Insulation
As quoted from the Environmental Building News, “Cellulose insulation should be a preferred insulation for the environmentally concerned.” Our cellulose insulation is made from 80% post-consumer recycled materials. Manufacturing cellulose insulation uses one-fifth of the energy required to make fiberglass insulation and outputs one-fifth of the carbon dioxide. This makes cellulose insulation the clear choice for environmentally conscious homeowners.
Our cellulose insulation is one of the few building materials treated with fire retardants and covered by industry and government standards. Cellulose insulated walls and ceilings demonstrate greater fire resistance than those without cellulose. Through real-world studies, conducted by safety commissions and fire officials, cellulose has become viewed as a positive factor in residential building fire safety.
Homeowners can breathe easy knowing that their indoor air quality, with our cellulose insulation, is far superior to fiberglass, eliminating irritating, abrasive, and airborne glass fibers.
Our cellulose insulation restricts air movement that can bring moist air into wall cavities, where it can condense and activate mold spores. One of the additives used in our insulation as a fire retardant is boric acid, a natural mold inhibitor.
In compliance with ASTM Standard C 739-91 and federal regulations, our cellulose insulation is tested and certified to be non-corrosive and will not promote deterioration of pipes or wires.
In addition to saving energy, our home insulation absorbs sound, reducing noise and making your home a quieter place to live.
