What Is the Most Eco-Friendly Insulation?

It is more eco-friendly to use home insulation materials that effectively insulate your home and are made of environmentally friendly materials. Using eco-friendly insulation materials can not only protect your home from energy loss but can also 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% recycled newsprint, and the remaining 15% consists of borax, boric acid or ammonium sulfate, which helps make the newsprint fibers more fire-resistant—and can help to repel insects!

Cellulose is more eco-friendly than other materials. It provides R-values of around R-3.5 per inch, similar to fiberglass, and contains a higher percentage of recycled content.

Cellulose is available as a loose-fill product that requires a specialized machine to blow into place. You can install it on open attic floors, in existing walls and more. By blowing the cellulose through small holes, you can increase the insulation level here with no need to tear the wall apart.

Cotton (Denim) Insulation

Cotton is more than just a popular clothing material used to produce blue jeans. At the end of the manufacturing process, scraps of denim can be recycled into cotton insulation. About 85% of this material is made from recycled denim, while the remaining 15% is comprised of plastic treated with borate, the same fire retardant and insect repellent used in cellulose. 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.

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.
