What is “Nu-Wool Engineered Cellulose” Insulation?
Nu-Wool Engineered Cellulose Insulation is an energy-saving insulation product made from recycled newspapers. Nu-Wool Engineered Cellulose Insulation, with its superior thermal and air infiltration properties, is installed in both attics and walls of residential and commercial buildings.
This environmentally friendly, "green" insulation provides up to 40% savings on energy bills when compared to conventional insulation materials.
Nu-Wool Engineered Cellulose Insulation vs. fiberglass insulation
Using Nu-Wool Engineered Cellulose Insulation is more than a smart choice for its comfort and savings benefits, Nu-Wool is environmentally friendly even in the manufacturing process. Fiberglass insulation is made by melting sand and recovered glass in gas-fired furnaces. It takes at least 8,500 BTU’s of energy to produce a pound of fiberglass insulation. Cellulose insulation is produced by processing post-consumer recovered paper through electrically driven mills. Estimates for the embodied energy of a pound of cellulose vary from 150 to 750 BTU’s. Converting this to BTU’s-per-R, it takes at least 40 times MORE energy to make fiberglass insulation than to produce cellulose insulation.
