Product Benefits for Your Client
When you choose cellulose insulation, your client will notice immediate rewards in their utility bills. Studies have shown that 20% to 30% savings can be obtained by properly installing cellulose insulation in your home. By keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, cellulose acts as thermal blanket providing you with a comfortable living environment.
Cellulose insulation is also economically priced when compared to other insulating materials. Therefore saving on product costs and installation, which can be profitable for your company.
And then, there’s the impact on the environment. Cellulose is inherently green and one of the most ecological building products on the market today. Made from 100% post consumer recycled newsprint, each bag of cellulose is made from a renewable natural resource. By using recycled newsprint, cellulose is an environmental choice product. It is manufactured responsibly, reduces the need to cut trees by using only recycled papers, reduces the consumption for heating and energy sources by its superior thermal properties and reduces CO2 emissions from decomposition of waste in our landfills. Please check the environmental properties and life cycle assessment of our products for more information on this.
Rest assured that by choosing cellulose insulation for the homes you build, you have made a sound investment in a high quality product. Our ThermoShield and ProCell products provide superior thermal, acoustical and fire properties. At an excellent R-value of 3.8 per inch, the higher density and perfect fit of our insulation, significantly reduces air leakage, infiltration and air convection. With fluctuating temperatures the R-value remains consistent making it a superior insulation for reducing summer heat gain and winter heat loss.
Not only does cellulose insulation deliver thermal resistance, it also provides great sound attenuation properties. Because of the dense fibers of cellulose and their ability to fill irregular cavities, cellulose insulation is very effective at controlling sound. (View soundproofing comparison video).
As an additional benefit, our products are treated with fire resistant non-toxic additives to inhibit the spread of fire allowing the building occupants more time to reach safety. Tests and studies have shown that cellulose insulation is 22 to 55% more fire resistant than competing insulation products (view Big Burn demo for more information). Homeowners can take comfort in knowing that our products undergo stringent testing for slow combustion and flame spread and they meet or exceed national and applicable building codes.
Whether it’s a new construction or retrofit, our products offer great versatility and can be installed in attics, walls, roofs and floors and even over existing fiberglass. Available as Type I or Type II cellulose insulation, it can be hand-poured, pneumatically-applied in either dry, damp or stabilized formulas.
SAFETY & OTHER BENEFITS
Our products are extremely safe to handle or install. They contain no formaldehyde, no asbestos or CFCs, HFCs or HCFCs. There are no health risks such as cancer related warnings associated with our insulation. The product will not irritate skin or itch as with some glass fiber insulations.
As part of the manufacturing process, the fiberized paper is treated with a special blend of fire retardant additives that also acts as a proven rodent and insect repellent. This process will not only repel insects, mice and other unwanted vermins, it does not promote the growth of mould, mildew and fungi.
Thermo-Cell Industries adheres to a quality assurance system and as a home builder you can be assured that our products undergo continual testing to ensure that our insulation meets and exceeds the stringent standards and building codes.
So choose cellulose today and start saving! You will not only be making an eco-friendly choice but one that makes a positive contribution to the environment without sacrificing performance and safety.
