Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Insulation Reduce Noise?
Limiting the transmission of sound from one location to another requires a material that encloses the source of the noise and forms a barrier between the source and the adjacent area. This is exactly what insulation does. Fiberglass and cellulose are the best types of insulation for soundproofing purposes.
How Is Cellulose Environmentally Friendly?
Cellulose insulation consists of up to 80 percent recycled material (primarily newspaper), and it takes less energy to make than other types of insulation. If the paper put into landfills every year were used to make cellulose insulation, it would save approximately eight million tons of CO2 emissions!
