Hedberg & Son uses and recommends cellulose insulation.Cellulose insulation is a superior product to fiberglass insulation.There are several reasons cellulose insulation is a superior forbuildings:• Higher R-per-inch values than most comparable mineral fibermaterials
• Reduces air leakage
• Not as subject to convective heat loss
• Lower cost relative to competing products of similar thermalefficiency
• Fire safe• Made from over 75% recycled materials - environmentally friendly
• Approved by all major code bodies
• Well tested and field provenIs Cellulose Insulation fire-safe.
Cellulose insulation is arguably the safest organic buildingmaterial since it is always treated with persistent fire retardants.The United States Consumer Products Safety Commission does not believe cellulose insulation is a hazardous product.
Firestatistics do not support the claim that cellulose insulation is a hazardous product. The vast majority of fire and insulation experts agree that proper installation of insulation, not the specific material used, determines the safety of the insulation system in anybuilding.
Can Cellulose Insulation help reduce building air-leakage?
Cellulose insulation has been shown to reduce air-leakage throughwall and ceilings of buildings. Colorado University foundcellulose at least 36 percent better than fiber glass in tightening buildings, which resulted in a 26%+ overall improvement inenergy efficiency.
Why should consumers ask for cellulose?
Research and cost analysis shows that cellulose insulation performs better and costs less than competing forms.
Homes withcellulose insulation are comfortable, healthy and fire-safe. Inaddition since it is an environmentally friendly product --consisting of recycled materials -- consumers know they are helping the planet.
