GREEN Since 1949
More than 65 years ago, Nu-Wool Co., Inc. began using recycled newspaper to manufacture its environmentally safe and effective cellulose insulation. Converting recycled paper to insulation used in the walls and attics of buildings helps keep it out of landfills where it has the potential to pollute the environment. Recycling paper also reduces the number of trees used to produce new paper. The amount of Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation in an average-sized new home is the equivalent of 39 trees!
Cellulose insulation makes efficient use of natural resources. Independent University and lab studies, as well as actual homes, show that buildings insulated with cellulose insulation are heated and cooled more efficiently, using up to 40% less energy than fiberglass insulated buildings, contributing to energy conservation and saving both homeowners and building owners up to 40%* on utility bills.
Using Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation is more than a smart choice for its comfort and savings benefit, it 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 product a pound of fiberglass insulation. Cellulose insulation is produced by processing pre and 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 BTU’s-per-R, it takes at least 10 times more energy to make fiberglass insulation than to produce cellulose insulation
