Platinum Exteriors offers cellulose insulation products and services to Dayton and Southwest Ohio.
When it comes to lowering your heating and cooling cost cellulose insulation is the best option compared to fiberglass. Numerous university studies have favorably compared the performance of cellulose insulation to fiberglass.
In 1990, the University of Colorado-Denver compared cellulose and fiberglass batt insulation in identical structures during the winter heating season. They found that the house insulated with cellulose insulation was 38% tighter and required 26% less energy.
Cellulose insulation completely fills gaps and voids around irregular objects such as wiring, plumbing, and framing materials in attics and walls.
Our cellulose insulation plays a crucial role in the building enclosure system. It is critical that all thermal insulation is in full continuous contact with the pressure barrier so as to prevent thermal bypass.
The air barrier is the pressure plane commonly made of drywall that separates the conditioned areas of the home from the unconditioned areas. Our cellulose insulation adheres to these guidelines to produce an effective thermal boundary.
