How Much Cellulose Do I Need?

Insulating your home helps you in slowing down the heat transfer from your home interior to outside and vice-versa. It is a combination of both air sealing and vapor barrier to prevent losing AC air outside and stopping outside air entry. Cellulose insulation gives high-value insulation which is represented by R-value.

Cellulose insulation tends to settle down a little after the installation which can leave a gap in the wall or it can leave gaps between the insulated floors. Knowing the probable settling rate of your cellulose insulation can help you in determining the amount of insulation require so that it doesn’t leave a gap in future. A high-qualified professional can guide you the best on it.

Professionals know that how much cellulose of different type can settle, and they can offset the possibility by extra installing, it is generally known as dense packing.  During the installation, the cellulose is compressed a little to allow more fibers to fit in.

Keeping in mind the end goal to make sense of how much insulation you have to add to your home you should first make sense of what is existing set up. In the event that you have cellulose insulation and a level roof, it’s easy to check the present R-value in your storage room. Ensure you just put your weight on the surrounding members on the off chance that you venture on the drywall, you will wind up with zero cellulose in the storage room as the roof will fall.
