When selecting insulation for your home, you want the best-performing product available -- and the one that provides you with the best value for your money.
That's why Intelligent Engery Solutions Green (IES Green) uses cellulose insulation, which provides the greatest value and performance, including the highest R-value per inch, excellent fire retardant capabilities, and exceptional sound control, not to mention the fact that cellulose is one of the greenest building products in the world today. Cellulose insulation can be blown into attics and walls of older homes that currently have no insulation in the walls.
Cellulose insulation is made from recycled newsprint and other paper sources, paper that might otherwise end up in landfills, releasing greenhouse gases as it decomposes. If all the paper currently being put into landfills each year were converted to cellulose insulation, this would save approximately eight million tons of CO2 emissions.
IES Green also uses two-part spray foam insulation in some cases, such as rim joists where air sealing and insulation are needed together. Foam is effective year round and its performance will not degrade over the lifespan of the home.
