Installation Methods

Do Different Installation Methods Make a Difference?

Installation is critical in determining how insulation performs in your home. How well does it fit in different size wall cavities and around countless obstacles? Is it cut and patched in? Or is it custom fit? Will it improve my existing home?

National Fiber Cel-Pak Insulation is sprayed or blown into walls, attics and floors, conforming to your home and surrounding you and your family with a complete, seamless insulation system. Installing Cellulose Insulation in new homes is one of the best decisions you can make for your family.

Superior attic insulation for your new home. cellulose insulation forms a seamless blanket of natural fibers that provide outstanding protection year round. Best of all, on the hottest and coldest days, (when you need it most) Cellulose won’t lose its effective R-value like traditional insulations

Cellulose installed in the walls—a difference you will see, feel, and enjoy. Walls are fully and tightly insulated, forming a monolithic thermal and  acoustical barrier. No more gaps. No more voids. No more drafts. Just years of comfort. As Cellulose is sprayed into the walls, the excess insulation is removed and recycled for use elsewhere in the home, leaving zero waste at the work site.

Cellulose in Existing Construction

Attics. Chances are good that your home could benefit from Cellulose Insulation being added to your attic. Many homes have inadequate insulation—often none at all in older homes! Or your attic may be insulated with fiberglass that is doing a poor job. If needed, Cellulose can be easily applied over existing insulation. Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratories found that capping loose-fill fiberglass insulation with Cellulose not only adds R-value, it actually restores the effective R-value that fiberglass insulation loses during cold weather. Researchers also learned that capping fiberglass with more fiberglass “fails to restore the lost R-value” lost in winter conditions.

Walls. While the process of adding Cellulose to the walls of existing buildings is a little more complicated (see the photos below), many homeowners of existing homes will benefit with Cellulose Insulation in the walls. A simple, quick inspection by a Metro NY Insulation Professional is all that is all that is needed to determine whether your home would benefit from additional wall insulation.

As a Certified National Fiber Cel-Pak Installer we only install our cellulose in walls using the “Dense Packing” method. The other installation method is referred to as “Drill and Fill” which does not fill the wall cavity completely and leads to settling over time.

Adding Cellulose Insulation to existing walls

1. Siding or Shingles are Carefully Removed 2. Small Holes Are Drilled
3. Cellulose Insulation is Blown In Via “Dense Pack” Method 4. Holes are Capped & Siding is Replaced
