Cellulose Attic Insulation
Cellulose attic insulation has many benefits, as installing thermal insulation in our houses or businesses, whether through a blown-in or blown-in thermal insulation system, lowers the monthly energy costs.
Customers are often reporting how much they are saving in energy costs on heating in the winter and air cooling in the summer once cellulose insulation has been placed in their home, increasing the homes energy efficiency
Through our cellulose attic installation inspections we can advise you on the best thermal insulation your home needs to be able to enjoy comfort inside.
Providing cellulose attic insulation services to the greater Nanaimo, BC area. Our years of experience and focus on customer communication have resulted in us becoming well known throughout Vancouver Island.

Cellulose Attic Insulation
Unlike the processes used to create other thermal insulators like rock wool or mineral wool, the whole production of cellulose insulation is fully eco-friendly and uses very little energy.
It comes in a variety of forms, including blankets (like fiberglass or rock wool blankets), loose cellulose for dry usage in filling cavities or on flat surfaces, and projected cellulose, which is applied by spray and adds a little amount of moisture that dissipates in 24 to 48 hours.
In order to create an entire, unbroken insulating layer that is open to diffusion, a cellulose insulation installation is therefore injected under air pressure into the empty areas of building components. There it is compressed in line with material handling instructions.
Cellulose insulation in attic spaces can be installed as dense pack cellulose or blown in cellulose, all of which aim to keep your indoor temperatures manageable and draft free. Often blown in cellulose insulation is used in attics to insulate those hard to reach areas.
In addition to having excellent fungicidal and insecticidal properties that prevent the growth of mold and insect pests, borax, which is typically used as a wood protector, also has fire retardant properties because, when exposed to intense heat, they vitrify at relatively low temperatures (between 300° and 400°C), preventing oxygen from reacting with the cellulose in the combustion process.
Cellulose attic insulation cost can be offset by using the BCHydro rebate. These insulating material cost reductions are intended for individuals like you who seek to replace or purchase new attic ceiling insulation in order to decrease the energy consumption of HVAC systems. As a consequence, because outside impurities are kept out of your house or place of work and your environment is properly temperature managed, the quality of the air within will improve.
Because cellulose is made from newspaper, but boron salts are also added throughout the manufacturing process, the finished product gives us a thermal insulating substance that stops the spread of fire without producing poisonous fumes or reaching extreme temperatures.
Our cellulose attic insulation contractors have many years of experience with both inspections and installations. Each of our cellulose attic insulation services are the means to a relaxing end by protecting and providing your home with high quality products and service.
Cellulose Insulation Benefits
- It is an environmentally friendly product since it uses recycled newspaper as a raw material and uses less energy during production and transportation and is recyclable
- Due to its density, it can be tailored to any cavity, making it a superb thermal insulator to stop air from moving between walls and preventing the cold from entering the house’s interior.
- Breathability: the house’s interior may maintain a pleasant temperature throughout the summer for a longer period of time without the need for frequent air conditioning.
- Its acoustic insulating qualities are present.
- The cellulose insulation’s addition of boric salts during manufacturing offers it qualities for the defence of the home against insect pests.
- Cellulose controls the materials’ relative humidity, which limits the growth of fungus.
- Great thermal insulator while remaining fire resistant and offers quick installation.
