Improve energy efficiency and home comfort with cellulose attic insulation

See how cellulose insulation performs better than fiberglass insulation.

If your home has insufficient, damaged, or improperly installed insulation, the effects on home comfort and energy efficiency can be significant. Faulty insulation allows significant heat transfer between your home's living space and unconditioned spaces like the attic and crawl space, as well as the outdoors. This transfer will create rooms that are uncomfortably cold in the winter and hot in the summer while also causing your utility bills to rise.

The insulation experts at Woods Basement Systems, Inc. can help you improve your home's comfort and energy efficiency with quality cellulose insulation. Installing cellulose in the attic or walls will raise the R-value of your insulation to recommended levels, improve energy performance, and save you money.

Choosing the right type of cellulose insulation for your home

At Woods Basement Systems, Inc., we use Tru-Soft™ cellulose insulation, a highly effective, recycled material that provides excellent energy performance as an affordable, environmentally friendly option. Tru-Soft™ comes in several varieties, each with different features and purposes. Our insulation professionals will evaluate your home and help you determine the right type of cellulose insulation for your needs.

  • Loose-fill or blown-in cellulose: Loose-fill cellulose is the ideal choice for attic insulation. The cellulose insulation can be blown over the top of existing fiberglass insulation batts to create a thick layer of insulation that provides the recommended R-value for your home.
  • Dense-pack cellulose: Dense-pack cellulose is the preferred type of cellulose for wall insulation and other enclosed spaces. Dense-pack cellulose is applied through small 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 at a high enough force to fully pack the wall cavity. The access holes are then plugged to finish the installation.
  • Wet-spray cellulose: Wet-spray cellulose is a technique that uses water and a liquid adhesive or binder compound in addition to dry cellulose. The combination creates a sticky, but not saturated material that is sprayed onto walls or ceilings prior to finishing. This application is generally used for new construction or as part of a remodel.

Before and After
  • New Insulation in Belleville, IL
    New Insulation in Belleville, IL

    The insulation in this attic wasn't sufficient enough when it came to keeping the attic isolated from the rest of the house.  Dr. Energy Saver came and put Blown in Cellulose in the attic and now the insulation keeps the house warm.  This barrier of insulation will also keep all the hot attic temperatures from reaching the conditioned spaces below.

    Exhaust Piper Repair in Saint Charles, MO Eliminates Fire Hazard

    Exhaust pipes from furnaces, water heaters or fireplaces are referred to as "hot pipes." Why? The exhaust fumes/air traveling through these metal pipes are HOT! Dr. Energy Saver St. Louis often finds these hot exhaust pipes surrounded by blown insulation in attics. The blown insulation touching the pipes is often blackened from the heat exposure. Dr. Energy Saver creates a block to this blown insulation, and also seals any air gaps around the pipes. Without this, there's a serious fire hazard!

  • Cellulose Insulation in Chesterfield, MO: Wall Insulation and Sound Barrier!
    Cellulose Insulation in Chesterfield, MO: Wall Insulation and Sound Barrier!

    If your exterior walls are insulated with fiberglass batts, heat is consistently lost through the exterior walls during the winter, and gained during the summer, making your home very difficult and expensive to heat and cool. Dense packing cellulose into walls that have fiberglass batts (or walls that have no insulation at all) is a great way to achieve the targeted R-value, and make your home more comfortable and efficient. Dense packed cellulose can also create a sound barrier in your exterior walls!

Benefits of Tru-Soft™ cellulose insulation

  • Improved home comfort: Raising your insulation levels to the recommended levels will reduce heat transfer to unconditioned spaces and the outdoors while also allowing your home to be heated and cooled evenly. These improvements will make it easier for you to keep your home at the temperature you desire regardless of the season.
  • Reduced energy use: Buildings insulated with Tru-Soft™ cellulose usually require 15-30% less energy for heating and cooling than homes insulated with fiberglass batts. This reduces both your energy expenses and your environmental impact.
  • Recycled material: Tru-Soft™ cellulose insulation utilizes recycled paper products such as old newspapers, preventing unnecessary waste creation. The material is then treated for fire resistant, ensuring a safe, effective, and environmentally friendly product.
  • Durable material: As mentioned above, Tru-Soft™ is treated for fire resistance to ensure safety, and it holds a Class-1 Fire Safety Rating, which is the highest available. Tru-Soft® also mold and pest resistant, making a much longer lasting solution than fiberglass batts.
