  • Cellulose insulation is made from 82% post-consumer recycled paper. It’s a natural product from a renewable resource.
  • Cellulose insulation takes less energy to produce than other types of insulation. Fiberglass has up to 10 times more embodied energy than cellulose insulation, and foam products have up to 64 times more.
  • Cellulose insulation creates a tight seal effectively blocking air infiltration and convection currents–the two leading causes of energy loss.
  • Cellulose insulation provides a highly effective fire barrier.
  • Cellulose insulation manufactured by Fiberlite Technologies has been scientifically proven to protect against mold and mildew within the insulation system.

Whatever your insulation project is whether it’s a new home or an energy efficient upgrade to your current home, a Tanco Installation Specialist can assist you in choosing the right product application for your project.
