How Cellulose Insulation Saves on Firewood
It’s said that firewood heats you twice: Once when you’re cutting it and again when you burn it. While not as popular as in years past, many people still use wood to heat their homes. Many people use natural gas and electric as their primary heat source, supplementing with wood heat.
Whichever method you choose, you can ultimately save on your heating bill if you have the right insulation. Cellulose insulation, in particular, is extremely good at retaining heat, thus saving you money in the long run. Today in the Valley Insulation blog, we’ll be talking about how cellulose insulation is the ideal choice for your winter insulation needs.
Why Heat With Wood
A real wood fire satisfies like no other heat source can. The fire’s soft glow creates the perfect setting for an intimate conversation. A wood-burning stove or heating fireplace will fill the room with a rich, soothing warmth, making it a favorite gathering place for family and friends.
Modern wood-burning fireplaces and stoves are a perfect match for new energy efficient houses. A centrally-located wood stove can fully heat an average-sized house, and for larger homes, the heat from an elegant new fireplace can be ducted to all areas. No more chilly rooms.
Heating with wood heat also offers peace of mind. An emergency can become a disaster without heat, but with a reliable wood heater and a few candles, you’ll turn it into a family adventure. Even if storms rage and the power lines go down, your family will be warm and cozy around the real wood fire.
Lower Your Heating Bills
Premium Cellulose Insulation is designed to completely eliminate the voids and air pockets that other insulation products might miss. This complete coverage will ensure that cold air isn’t able to leak in and filter through your home. After having your cellulose insulation installed, you’ll notice the heating cost on your next utility bill is lower. If you heat with firewood, you’ll notice you’re making fewer trips out to the woodpile. This will help you to save a significant amount of time and money in the long run. On top of its energy efficiency, it’s also an environmentally friendly product.
Fire Retardancy and Other Benefits
Of course, lowering your energy bills isn’t the only benefit of cellulose insulation. Another huge benefit is the fact that it is treated against the spread of fire. Meaning if a fire starts, cellulose insulation will help to slow the fire from spreading, giving you more time to escape and the fire department more time to save your home. This benefit eases the worry to homeowners who choose to heat with wood.
Cellulose insulation also has sound deadening properties, which will help to reduce outside noise and keep the noise coming out of your home quieter. With all these amazing benefits, it’s easy to see why cellulose insulation is the clear choice for homeowners everywhere.
