Blown in cellulose is a highly effective, environmentally friendly insulation solution. Made from recycled newspaper and treated with borate for fire retardance, the even distribution of blown in cellulose insulation makes for a high performance insulation that has come into increasing favor among green builders and building energy efficiency experts.
A few reasons we like blown in cellulose insulation:
Cellulose is made from recycled newspaper, so it's an earth-friendly insulation solution. You can also rest assured that it's a safe product to have in your house -- no formaldehyde, and no harmful chemicals.
Consistent High Performance.
Because cellulose is blown into cavities as small particles rather than installed in batt form, it's far less likely to come with gaps and air leaks around the edges. This means that you get consistent high performance - for a cozier, more energy efficient home.
Cellulose is treated with the flame retardant borate, which is highly effective at slowing down the spread of fires. A house that is insulated with blown in cellulose insulation is safer from a fire-hazard standpoint than an uninsulated house.

My husband and I purchased our 1960's house in 2006. We immediately noticed that it was very cold and drafty. We were spending up to $200 a month on natural gas alone and our house wasn't even 67 degrees.
