Cellulose Insulation on Long Island

The Eco-Friendly Insulation Option Based in East Farmingdale

When it comes to environmentally friendly insulation, you can’t beat the benefits of cellulose insulation! It’s made from recycled plant material, mostly the newspapers and other paper products you’ve been sorting and recycling every day.

Here at Master Plumbing Heating Cooling, we are firm believers in the power of well-installed cellulose insulation. We perform cellulose insulation installations on Long Island to keep our customers’ homes energy efficient and comfortable.

Contact us online or call (631) 328-2585 to learn more about the benefits of cellulose insulation.

What Is Cellulose Insulation?

Cellulose is the plant-based material that makes up paper, cardboard, and other paper products. Cellulose insulation is made from up to 75-85% post-consumer recycled material, mostly from newspapers. The remaining content consists of a fire retardant, either borate or ammonium nitrate. This treatment makes cellulose insulation a Class 1 fire rated material, equal in fire safety to other types of insulation.

Benefits of Cellulose Insulation

For our customers who are environmentally aware, cellulose offers the highest percentage of recycled material among various types of insulation. Recycled fiberglass insulation only has 50% recycled material. Cellulose insulation also offers a higher R-value rating— up to 3.7 per inch— when compared to other loose pack or blown-in fiberglass insulation. As a result, you’ll need less cellulose material to achieve the same R-value or thermal resistance results.

Cellulose insulation also has great soundproofing qualities, especially when applied inside walls or between attic spaces and main living areas. Not only will your Long Island home be more comfortable, but it’ll be quiet as well!

Installing Cellulose Insulation

At Master Plumbing Heating Cooling, we prefer the blown-in cellulose installation process because it allows us to better meet your R-value goals. With no seams or exposed joists, it provides a more complete, continuous insulation layer – which translates into as much as 25% more energy saved.

Air Sealing Enhances Cellulose Insulation

For any insulation to perform properly, we recommend air sealing any small cracks or gaps before installation. Our meticulous air sealing is done using hand-applied sealing foam to gaps around lighting fixtures, along the intersections of walls and ceilings, electrical or plumbing penetrations — anywhere air might leak into your living areas.

We can often spot these potential leak spots with visual examinations, but to find them all we recommend a home energy audit. The infrared thermal imaging camera will identify leaks, gaps, and missing insulation in walls, ceilings, and floors. There are energy efficiency rebates and incentives available that can help to reduce the cost of a home energy assessment. Just ask, and we’ll be happy to help you apply!
