Advantages of Thermo-Cell (Cellulose)
- High effective R-value per inch
- Conserves energy by reducing fuel consumption
- Superior flame retardant qualities
- Significant sound and moisture control enhanced by the natural open cell structure of the cellulose fiber
- Non-toxic and non-irritating to the skin with no known health problems (Contains no formaldehyde, asbestos or glass fiber)
- Low density gives superior coverage
- Recycled product is healthier and helps preserve the environment by saving energy
- Saves money and reduces utility bills dramatically by lowering air changes per hour
- Eliminates air infiltration
- Does not promote mold and mildew growth
(Checking your home’s insulating system is one of the fastest and most cost-efficient ways to use a whole-house approach to reduce energy waste and maximize your energy dollars. A good insulating system includes a combination of products and construction techniques that provide a home with thermal performance, protect it against air infiltration and control moisture. You can increase the comfort of your home while reducing your heating and cooling needs by up to 30% by investing just a few hundred dollars in proper insulation and weatherization products.)
Cellulose insulation is blown into your walls, allowing it to conform to your home. This creates a seamless insulations system. Fiberglass batts, unlike cellulose insulation, are cut and then pieced together, leaving voids, gaps, and areas of compression that reduce your R-value. Contact us for more information about the heat savings of custom blown cellulose insulation.
Drill and Fill Method
If your home was built more than 20 years ago, you may have not have any insulation in your walls. Simply remove a wall plate, and you should be able to see the insulation with a flashlight. If you do not see any insulation, you could enjoy significant heat savings by having Whole House Insulation dense pack insulation adding into the wall cavities of your home.

Environmentally Friendly Insulation
Choose Green…in the world of Green remodeling, few projects are more important, and have greater impact than installing and improving insulation. There is a huge reduction in energy costs that can be directly influenced by proper insulation.
You can maximize your benefits by:
Perform an Energy Audit
A specialist will come to your home to perform a number of tests that will identify your home’s present insulation efficiency. These tests will tell you where heat is escaping your home. Using infrared photos, a specialist can identify areas where measures can be taken to improve the overall energy efficiency of your home.
The higher the R-Value, the better
Insulation is measured in R-Values- the higher the R-Value, the better your walls and roofs will resist the loss or transfer of heat. Whole House Insulation, Inc. will test the R-Value of your home on an initial meeting by checking the insulation in your attic, ceilings, exterior and basement walls, floors, and crawl spaces.
Don’t forget the Attic
Insulation within your walls is important, but attics, crawlspaces, and other forgotten areas can be a huge source of heat loss.
Caulk, Air Seal and Weather Strip
It takes only one drafty window or door to negate all the energy saving potential that your new insulation provides. Be sure to caulk, weather strip, and seal any and all areas where heat loss is occurring in your home.
