Wet Spray Cellulose
As with the dense pack cellulose, our wet spray cellulose is manufactured by Energy Control. Forrest Wool cellulose has a starch base that, when mixed with water, creates a "sticky” reaction. That reaction allows the cellulose to be sprayed into a cavity with a membrane to hold it in place. Once the water/starch reaction has completed and dried, the cellulose is ready for drywall. When cellulose is pneumatically installed it takes on almost liquid-like properties that let it flow into cavities and around obstructions to completely fill walls and seal every crack and seam. No fiber glass or rock wool material duplicates this action. Liquid-applied foam sprays do, but they cost much more than cellulose.
Dry Blow/Dense Pack Cellulose
At Gibbons Extreme Insulation, we use Energy Control Cellulose Products. For “Dense Dry Blowing” and Attics, we install Energy Control’s ECI 2 Cellulose. ECI 2 is comprised of 100% post-consumer fibers (i.e. paper, cardboard)."R- Value" (an expression of heat transfer resistance) is the standard for measuring insulation performance. At 3.6 to 3.8 per inch, cellulose insulation is considerably better than most mineral fiber blowing wools, but R-value is only one factor in the energy efficiency of a home. Studies of actual buildings regularly show that cellulose-insulated buildings may use 20% to 30% less energy than buildings with fiberglass, even if the R-value of the insulation in the walls and ceilings are identical. One reason for this is the capacity of cellulose to stop air infiltration. The fibers of cellulose insulation are finer and more flexible than mineral fiber blowing wool.
