What Is Cellulose Insulation?
Cellulose insulation is made primarily from recycled newspaper treated to resist damage from fire, pests, mold, and more. It is non-toxic, has impressive thermal performance with a rating of up to R-3.8 per inch, and fills all voids and gaps in the installed area, helping to seal out air, drafts, and dust.
Cellulose insulation can be installed quickly and cost-effectively by a professional with a machine that blows it into place.
Signs Your Home Needs More Attic Insulation
If your home is lacking attic insulation or doesn’t have enough, you may notice some of the following issues:
- Your home is too hot in the summer or cool in the winter
- Your heating and cooling costs are high compared to neighboring homes
- Your air conditioning or heating system seems to run constantly
- Your home has drafts, excessive dust, high humidity, or air quality issues

How Insulation Improves HVAC Efficiency
In the West Palm Beach area, keeping your home comfortable can put a strain on your HVAC system. By adding blown-in cellulose to your attic, you can keep the heat of the roof from getting into your home during the summer, and you can prevent heated air from escaping to the attic during winter.
This allows your heating and air conditioning systems to run less often, reducing your energy costs. It also puts less wear and tear on the equipment, increasing its efficiency, performance, and longevity.
How Long Does Cellulose Insulation Last?
Blown-in cellulose will last up to 30 years or longer, but it can start to degrade in performance after about 15 years, due to settling. The material will slowly compress and become more dense with time, reducing its R-value and insulating performance.
A skilled installer like those at Hopkins Air Conditioning can minimize settling by adjusting moisture levels as the insulation is blown into place, maximizing its service life.
