We Install Energy Efficient Cellulose Insulation for Improved Home Comfort

See how cellulose insulation performs better than fiberglass insulation.

When insulation becomes damaged or is improperly installed, energy can escape through your attic, basement walls, exterior walls, and other parts of your home through tiny gaps and cracks. When this happens, temperatures in your home can become extremely uncomfortable (either too hot or too cold) and to make things worse, it’s likely that you are also wasting hard-earned money on pricey utility bills.

Air leaking through gaps and cracks is responsible for one-third of an average home’s heat loss. Air infiltration also plays a big role in heat loss, but cellulose naturally protects against air infiltration and air leaks due to its low air permeability.

We make it easy to save money and energy - Dr. Energy Saver St. Louis installs several types of cellulose insulation in St. Louis, Florissant, Ballwin, Belleville, Chesterfield, East St. Louis, Fenton, Granite City, Arnold, Edwardsville, and more!

Tru-Soft™ cellulose insulation is the “green” choice

Buildings insulated with Tru-Soft cellulose usually require 15 to 30 percent less energy for heating and cooling than homes insulated with fiberglass batts. Less required energy also means burning less fossil fuel, which leads to the reduction of harmful carbon emissions. Building insulation is a “green” product, because it eliminates the need to set your heating or cooling on a high setting, thus saving energy.

Tru-Soft™ cellulose insulation does more than just provide you with a comfortable, energy-saving building. The insulation is also one of the most environmentally-friendly building products in the world, because:

  • It’s “super-green.” Tru-Soft™ cellulose insulation utilizes recycled paper products, like old newspapers and other waste paper, preventing it from being sent to a landfill, where it would decompose and release greenhouse gases. The insulation is made up of more recycled content (85 percent) than any other insulation product within the industry.
  • It takes less energy to make. It takes at least ten times more energy to make fiberglass insulation than it does to make cellulose. Paper collected from community-based recycling programs is taken and processed in grinding machinery, with the result being a fluffy, lightweight material. Cellulose insulation has an insulation value of as much as R-4 per inch.
  • Even the cleanup is “green.” Cellulose insulation scrap is gathered and recycled on-site while fiberglass and foam debris are brought to a landfill, and never decompose.

Additives in cellulose protect against fire, insects and mold

Besides being one of the “greenest” building products in the industry, the fire retardants used to treat the fibers also make cellulose insulation one of the most fire resistant building materials used in your home. Cellulose does not contain dangerous substances commonly found in building materials, including formaldehyde, volatile organic compounds, and glass fibers.

The insulation is treated with a borate solution, giving the material a Class 1 (the highest) fire safety rating. This same treatment also makes it insect and mold resistant.

There’s no “perfect” insulation, just insulation that’s right for your needs

Tru-Soft™ cellulose insulation comes in several varieties, each with their own features and benefits. These differences should be considered when choosing the right insulation for your space.

  • Loose-fill or blown cellulose is an appropriate choice for insulating an attic space. Cellulose is fed into a hopper and blower unit that feeds shredded cellulose through a hose up into the attic space where another installer then applies the insulation to the correct areas.
  • Dense-pack cellulose requires higher air pressure and a denser application. Before applying, two-inch-diameter access holes are drilled into the cavities. Cellulose is blown into wall cavities and enclosed spaces using a small application nozzle that injects the insulation. The holes are then plugged prior to completion.
  • Wet-spray cellulose is a technique that uses water, and may use a liquid adhesive or binder compound, which are added to the dry cellulose. The material is meant to be sticky, but not saturated. Wet-spray cellulose is most often used in newly-constructed buildings.
