Cellulose Insulation

Posted by ARC Insulation April 4th, 2024

If you are looking for a type of insulation that’s environmentally friendly but also offers the comprehensive protection you require for your Chicagoland home or business, cellulose insulation may be the right choice for you. Made from recycled newspaper and treated with borate to be fire and mold-resistant, cellulose is one of the most environmentally conscious and energy efficient choices for insulation. 

At ARC Insulation, we offer a wide range of insulation services throughout Naperville and the surrounding areas. Our expert team of insulation specialists can help determine if cellulose insulation will meet your needs.  

Benefits of Cellulose Insulation 

At ARC Insulation, we take special care when installing cellulose insulation to ensure a quick process with minimal disturbance to your home. There are numerous advantages to choosing cellulose insulation for your home. Some of these include:

  • Environmentally friendly – Made almost exclusively from recycled newspaper, cellulose is one of the greenest products available on the market today.
  • Effective – By conforming to a building’s structure, cellulose insulation creates a tight-fitting barrier that prevents outside air from penetrating inside.
  • Safe – Cellulose insulation is treated with borate to be fire, insect, and mold resistant. Also known as boric acid, borate is a safe, mineral-based substance that will not cause problems with your home or business.
  • Noise dampening – Cellulose insulation is ideal for its sound-deadening qualities, which makes it great for apartment buildings, condominiums, or anywhere where you want extra peace and quiet.
  • High R-value – The exact specifications of cellulose can vary depending on how densely it’s packed within your walls, but with professional installation from our team, you can rest assured that your home or business is protected from the outside elements. 

Air Sealing + Cellulose Insulation = Maximum Protection 

Cellulose insulation is great at reducing heat transfer in your home or business, but it only provides some protection against air movement. This is why we recommend air sealing as well, which closes up holes and gaps that allow air to enter and exit your building. Together, these two services create a strong barrier that protects your home throughout every season of the year.
