Thermal Properties - Energy Savings
Maximize your energy savings by upgrading your home’s attic insulation with Weathershield TM. Whether it’s a new construction or a renovation, by insulating your home with cellulose insulation you will notice reductions on your utility bills by as much as 20 to 30%.
By keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, cellulose acts as thermal blanket providing you with a comfortable living environment. In the summer, you will save on your air conditioning and in the winter you can expect to save on your heating bills, simply by sealing any air leaks and adding a thermal performing product, such as cellulose.
In a study conducted by University of Colorado School of Architecture, testing was performed under real world conditions on two building structures, one with cellulose insulation and the other with fiberglass insulation. Noticeable differences were observed immediately, and in as little as 16 days, the experiment showed that the cellulose insulated structure used 26.4% less energy. Tests also concluded that in overall thermal performance testing, the cellulose building was 38% tighter and more effective than the fiberglass insulated one.
By lowering your energy consumption and usage, you are also contributing to lowering global CO2 emissions, thus reducing your carbon footprint. Visit CIMA’s Greenest of the Green Campaign to find out more information.
Our Weathershield™ insulation products are designed to improve the thermal value and performance of your home by reducing your energy consumption by tightening up the building envelope.
Cellulose insulation is also economically priced when compared to other insulating materials. Some consumers are very hands-on and opt to upgrade their attic insulation by renting an insulation blowing machine and doing it themselves (check out our do-it-yourself section). Therefore saving money on product costs, installation and utility bills.
