Everyone is concerned about the cost of heating and cooling their homes. Not only that, we know more than ever about the environmental and political impact our energy choices can have.
Properly insulating and air sealing your home is one of the quickest, easiest, most cost effective steps you can take to immediately reduce your heating and cooling bills.
When selecting insulation for your home, you want the best performing product available, and the one that provides you with the best value for your money. With Celbar cellulose Insulation you get both great value and great performance, including the highest R-value per inch, excellent fire retardant capabilities and exceptional sound control, not to mention the fact that cellulose is one of the greenest building products in the world today.
Save Money on your House
There are many factors to consider when choosing an insulation product. The installed price is often a major consideration, but that doesn’t take into account the substantial savings available over time, based on performance. When it comes to your choice of insulation, the cheapest alternative is most often not the least expensive over time. Then there are the environmental issues to consider.

Besides saving you money, Celbar Cellulose insulation also provides extremely effective fire performance capabilities.
Celbar has a Class 1 Fire-Rating as tested by Underwriter’s Laboratories. It is also approved for use in Fire-Rated Partitions of up to 2-Hours. Learn More about Fire Safety and Celbar
Protect your Home from Sound Pollution
Celbar provides superior sound transfer control demanded by building designers, owners and occupants. Celbar assemblies perform closer to lab tested STC ratings in the field than do other conventional batt and sound board systems. This is due to the complete coverage and the sealing action of Celbar.
Reduce Noise Between Walls and Neighbors
With the popularity of home entertainment centers, surround sound speaker systems and other sound sources, interior noise pollution must be addressed. Applying Celbar wall spray within interior walls greatly reduces the sound that moves through the wall providing a quieter, more comfortable room.
A superior insulation system will have a high R-Value (prevent heat transfer via conduction), will be pneumatically or spray applied, fully filling the building cavity (preventing heat loss via convection), and will be densely packed (preventing heat loss via air infiltration and radiation). Celbar Cellulose insulation meets all four of these critical performance criteria!
By comparison, the most widely used insulation material, conventional fiberglass batts, only helps prevent conduction. Get more Details on Insulation
Where do I put insulation?
The most common locations for insulation are attics and exterior walls. However, to gain the maximum impact and energy savings from your insulation, it should also be installed in ceilings with unheated spaces, overhangs, sun-rooms, etc. Celbar Cellulose insulation can also be added to interior walls for increased sound control throughout the house.
What is R-Value?
R-Value is the measure of resistance to heat flow through a given thickness of material. The higher the R-value is, the greater the resistance.
How is it Installed?
Using a long hose that’s connected to a blowing machine, insulation is directed into a wall cavity or attic, filling the cavity or blanketing the space. To achieve the desired R-value, install the amount specified on the coverage chart printed on the bag.
As a practical matter, a homeowner should only consider installing cellulose in their attic, either where there is none today or as a cap over existing material.
How does Celbar blown Insulation work?
Celbar Loosefill blown insulation stops the movement of heat from radiating into your home from the roof.
Properly insulating and air sealing your home is one of the quickest, easiest, most cost effective steps you can take to immediately reduce your heating and cooling bills and help preserve the environment.
How Much Do I Need In My Attic?
Each area of the country has different recommended R-values for insulation. Refer to this map to find out the recommended R-values for your area.
What about Settling?
All blown insulations are subject to settling. Industry standards therefore require all such products to be installed based on their settled density.
This means your initial application of Loosefill will be thicker to compensate, making sure your R-Value remains consistent.
Is it safe for the Environment?
While people may debate the causes of global warming, it is just common sense to use products that have as little impact on the environment as possible.
Insulation, by reducing the amount of energy required to heat or cool a building, is environmentally friendly. But don’t be fooled into thinking all insulating materials are equal. There is plenty of greenwashing taking place to make products look more beneficial, or less harmful, to the environment than they really are.
Celbar Cellulose Insulation is one of the greenest building products in the world.
Celbar Cellulose insulation is made from recycled newsprint and other paper sources, paper that might otherwise end up in landfills, releasing greenhouse gases as it decomposed.
If all the paper currently being put into landfills each year were converted to cellulose insulation, it would save approximately eight million tons of CO2 emissions. That’s the equivalent of taking every car off the road in New Mexico and Nevada. Learn More about How Green Celbar truly is.
