According to Environmental Building News, “Cellulose insulation should be a preferred insulation material for environmentally concerned builders and designers.” Cellulose contains from 75% to 85% post-consumer recycled newsprint whereas fiberglass products contain from 0% to 35% pre-consumer recycled glass.
Energy Efficiency is what really sets cellulose insulation apart from traditional fiberglass insulation. The R-value of cellulose checks in at an incredible R-38 in an attic with 10 inches of cellulose insulation. It’s also important to note that cellulose will maintain it’s R-value even under cold conditions.
