When it comes to installation, Valley Insulation LLC offers two major types of insulation: Nu-Wool cellulose insulation and styrofoam boards. All of these options serve certain purposes better than others. For more details about each, read on.
Nu-Wool Wallseal System
The Nu-Wool Wallseal System is cellulose insulation (blow-in insulation) applied with a vacuum hose and a powerful blowing machine. It is considered a blow-in insulation because unlike other batted or rolled varieties, it does not come pre-formed in layers.
Nu-Wool is made of recycled newspaper material, which means it is environmentally friendly. It offers a number of benefits over other types of insulation. Because the cellulose is applied by a hose, it is able to cover more space in less time. It also better fits into the spaces it covers, offering a more airtight solution. With less air able to move about, cellulose insulation offers greater flame retardation than other forms of insulation.
Cellulose is also a great material for insulating existing walls due to its application process.
Styrofoam board is simple to install, and it does not retain water like insulation made of small particles of cellulose. As an additional insulator to dampen sound or in unfinished spaces, styrofoam can be a great option.
