Insulation

Recycled insulation is a high-performance insulation that's made from scraps and clippings of recycled fibers. Ultra-Low VOC Insulation emits undetectable or ultra-low amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) including formaldehyde.These types of insulation are suitable for residential and commercial use in the same places as fiberglass or mineral wool batts would be used—between open roof rafters, ceiling joists and wall studs.

INSULATION TIPS

  • Consider factors such as your climate, home design, and budget when selecting insulation for your home.
  • Use higher R-value insulation, such as spray foam, on exterior walls and in cathedral ceilings to get more insulation with less thickness.
  • Install attic air barriers such as wind baffles along the entire attic eave to help ensure proper airflow from the soffit to the attic. Ventilation helps with moisture control and reducing summer cooling bills, but don't ventilate your attic if you have insulation on the underside of the roof. Ask a qualified contractor for recommendations.
