Excellent Reasons for Choosing Cellulose Insulation Options
Determining the Effectiveness of Your Insulation
The R-Value is not the only way to judge the effectiveness of insulation because your windows and doors lose and gain heat in 3 ways:
Convection (the transfer of heat by moving air)
Conduction (the transfer of heat through a solid material or R-Value)
Radiation (the transfer of heat in the form of electromagnetic waves)
More Reasons to Choose Cellulose
The R-value of blown fiberglass plunges during cold weather while the effectiveness of cellulose actually increases. The summer heat also causes the R-value of fiberglass to wither.
Cellulose insulation cuts air infiltration 38% better than fiberglass.
Cellulose can reduce heating and cooling bills by up to 32%.
The method of insulation you decide on is as important as the type of insulation you choose. We ensure 3.5 lbs. of pressure through the entire cavity we are insulating which means no settling. If installed improperly, insulation will settle and not insulate as it should. However, you can count on our 50+ years of experience at Jayne Brothers to get the job done right for you.
Be Cautious of the Information That You Receive
There’s a lot of misinformation about energy savings. Every house is different and won’t get the same results as another house with different efficiency issues. We won’t promise you a certain percentage. We will do the job right using the best possible materials and methods and we'll leave your home as efficiently insulated as it can be.
