Blown-in Cellulose Insulation

Consider blown-in cellulose insulation from The Insulation Company for your insulating needs. Blown-in insulation is ideal for both retrofit and new insulation installation. The Insulation Company is conveniently located in Oldsmar, FL, offering quick access to neighboring Hillsborough and Pasco counties, as well as the Gulf beaches outlining Tampa Bay.

Cellulose insulation is made from paper, often recycled newspaper. The paper is treated to be flame-retardant, and has only caught fire in extreme cases. It is also treated to help prevent rot, decay and mildew — these issues will only develop after prolonged moisture exposure.

Compared to fiberglass insulation, cellulose is considered more environmentally friendly, as it is made with a minimum of 85% recycled material. Additionally, cellulose is not considered a pollutant if airborne, and it doesn’t use at much energy as fiberglass to produce. Cellulose insulation is also known for being a better insulator in cold climates because its R-value isn’t lost in extreme cold.
