Cellulose Insulation

For insulation purposes there are a few ways you can go to make sure your home is protected from the cold and Cellulose insulation is one of those ways. What are the advantages of using the Cellulose insulation as opposed to other insulations? Well to give you an outline here is a breakdown of why we love to work with this material. Blown cellulose is made from a mixture of shredded newspaper and organic material. It is treated with a flame retardant and is a very warm insulating product. Since cellulose insulation can be blown it really fills all the cavities and does a fantastic job of making sure every square inch is covered.

Because cellulose is fire resistance in its make up if any fire occurs then the cellulose insulation can slow the fire down from spreading further. With recent research done cellulose insulation on average has a fire resistance rating of 20 to 50%, which means it really not only insulates your home for the better but in a emergency it can save your life and the rest of your home by slowing any fire down from spreading. It also does not technically emit any toxic chemicals when burnt.

Our company uses some of the best cellulose in the business and we use a special cellulose blowing machine. The machine works perfectly because it blows the cellulose around any objects that are sticking out to fill the cavity. Cellulose insulation does take some time to dry but in general it’s a denser material then fiberglass but it requires less energy and fits snugger than fiber glass when installed properly. We like to use a vapor barrier because with loose cellulose insulation you need this as it prevents moister which as we know can cause mildew if there is too much of a buildup of this.

So let’s just do a recap of why cellulose spray is a fantastic product.

  • Once set it keeps its form and does not sag at all.
  • You will save a great deal of money on energy costs.
  • It will help keep dust and pollen out.
  • It’s a bug free insulation so you won’t have nasty critters living in your walls.
  • It stops moisture build up to keep the home dry.
  • It’s fire retardant so it can stop the spread of fire if it breaks out.

We suggest you call us if you need any advice about Cellulose insulation and we are looking forward to quoting you on how much it will be to insulate your home with this fantastic product.

We bought our home in June and had a full house survey done on the property. One of the things that came up was that the attic insulation was insufficient so we had to put it on our to do list. In September we used UAC insulation Contractors to insulate our attic and they did a nice job. I was considering doing it myself but I took a look at the mess up there and thought better of it. The team came around and stripped out all of the old insulation and did a full attic clean, they made sure it was all bagged up and took it away for disposal. They installed a fiberglass insulation as that is what I wanted and I now I have a clean insulated attic which will be perfect for the winter. Thank you guys for doing a job I did not really want to do.

As my home was always hot or cold I needed to address the matter as it was costing me a small fortune in energy bills. I called UAC Insulation Contractors to do some further inspection and see if they could figure out why. Using some fancy equipment they managed to pinpoint the areas in my home where I was having heat and cold air escape. That’s why my home was always like an oven in the summer even with the AC on and an ice box in winter with the heat sill blasting. They got to work in adding extra insulation all over my home including crawl spaces under the home and in the walls. Now it’s like night and day, the heat stays in the home as does the AC so I am not spending a small fortune to feel comfortable. It’s well worth having your home inspected as you will be surprised as to how inefficient your home was running before these guys step in to change all of that.

I was after a good alternative to fiberglass insulation and I heard Cellulose insulation was the way to go. I had UAC Insulation Contractors come out and give me a price quote and they did a fantastic job of walking me through the benefits of Cellulose and verifying why I wanted it installed in the first place. I used the company to carry out the work and they used a loose fill insulation to pump in to the wall. They did a fantastic job and I was very happy with the end result of how the insulation installation which is a mouthful to say, went.

My basement was always miserable to go down to as it was freezing in the winter and having the washer and dryer located down there meant it was never a pleasure to venture to. I had UAC Insulation Contractors come around and look at installing some insulation to warm it up and then I wanted it sealed in with drywall to make it a proper room. The insulation team came around and suggested a good insulation and showed me the product. They told me it would instantly give me more warm and save me money on heating as less heat would escape. After having the work done 5 months ago I can safely say they were right. The room and home feels warmer in general and it’s now a place I don’t mind going down to when doing the washing.
