Types of Eco-Friendly Insulation in Austin

Home insulation products have the same goals in mind—to reduce heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer, and to improve the energy efficiency of a home.

What will make some home insulation materials more eco-friendly than others come down to how effectively the insulation can protect the home from energy loss, what material the insulation is made up of and how effectively the insulation can help to reduce the emissions associated with heating and cooling equipment.

The following are types of eco-friendly insulation you may want to consider for your home:

Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose insulation is one of the most environmentally friendly home insulation materials. It is made up of 80 to 85 percent recycled newsprint, and the remaining 15 percent consists of borax, boric acid or ammonium sulfate, which helps make the newsprint fibers more fire resistant—and can help to repel insects!

Cellulose insulation provides R-values of about 3.5 per inch, a rating that is similar to fiberglass but contained a higher percentage of recycled materials. If you are considering installing cellulose insulation in your home, you may want to think about its installation process. Cellulose is a loose-fill product that can be blown into place and can fit into even the smallest holes in an attic or basement.

Cotton Insulation

Cotton insulation is also referred to as denim insulation since the material is similar to that which is used to make blue jeans! When it comes to selecting environmentally friendly insulation, cotton insulation can be an excellent recycled material to use for insulation purposes.

Cotton insulation consists of about 85 percent recycled denim, while the remaining 15 percent is made up of plastic treated with borate, the same fire retardant and insect repellent used in cellulose insulation. The material delivers an insulation rating of about R-3.4 per inch.

Sheep’s Wool Insulation

Humans have been making warm clothing from wool for centuries. But did you know this eco-friendly material is also available for home insulation? Sheep’s wool provides an insulation rating of about R-3.0 to R-4.0 per inch. This uncanny version of home insulation is naturally fire resistant, but manufacturers typically still add borate to resist pests and mold.

Polyurethane Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam is one of the most efficient insulation materials out there, providing an impressive R-value of up to R-6.5 per inch! This makes it an exceptional choice for eco-friendly insulation. It is also possible to find polyurethane spray foam made from soy or vegetable oil instead of petroleum, a characteristic that makes it even better for the environment.
