- Ceiling penetrations and interior wall top plates are sealed to prevent air infiltration.
- Better ventilation in attics from air chutes in every space using the entire space.
- Maximum R-Value in attics from even blown in cellulose at R-50. (15.5″)
- Maximum R-Value in Box joists due to Foam sprayed between each floor joist.
- Exclusive insect control with Incide in the Nu-Wool Cellulose that will exterminate insects on contact.
- Up to 40% energy savings with all these advantages!!

Nu-Wool Cellulose is a quality insulation manufactured from recycled paper. This product has no Ammonium Sulphate in it therefore it has no corrosive tendencies. Nu-Wool Cellulose is a “WallSeal” product used for walls and attic. It is applied to walls for a superior R-Value because it avoids air pockets and infiltration common with other insulation products. Nu-Wool WallSeal in walls and attics combined with our professional caulking and foaming package will give you a very high energy efficient home!
