When you build or purchase a home, one of the most important considerations is the cost of utilities. With electric and natural gas prices on the rise, the smart homeowner should think about the type of insulation used in their home. Installing more effective insulation will provide the most energy savings by reducing the use of your cooling and heating systems in your home.
EnviroSmart is a stabilized cellulose insulation that can be used instead of fiberglass insulation. Homes insulated with cellulose have been shown to use 26 percent less energy than homes insulated with fiberglass! This is a direct cost benefit to you, since the majority of your home energy dollars are spent on heating and cooling your house.
In addition to saving you money on your energy bills, what are some other benefits of EnviroSmart?
- Provides outstanding thermal resistance – EnviroSmart resists heat transfer or movement. In attics, it takes less EnviroSmart insulation to achieve great thermal resistance. In walls, EnviroSmart is installed so that the entire cavity is filled. This results in more effective thermal resistance.
- Stops air infiltration – the more air that enters or exits your home through the exterior walls, the less effective your insulation is. With the higher density product EnviroSmart and its thorough installation method, less air infiltration occurs. EnviroSmart becomes part of your wall structure, providing insulation and air infiltration blockage for the life of your home.
- Controls sound – undesired sounds from outside your home are significantly reduced by EnviroSmart. Because it is made from fibrous materials that completely fill all voids, the sound-absorbing cellulose fibers block external noise.
- Contributes to the environment – EnviroSmart is made from recycled newspapers, so you are not only benefitting your own home but also the environment.
Studies show that 60 percent of the money you spend on energy in your home goes to heating and cooling it. Choosing the most effective insulation will be one of the smartest investments you can make, and EnviroSmart provides the benefits you need to achieve that goal.
