uses Thermolok cellulose insulation
Why Thermolok cellulose? Because I have used almost every brand of cellulose out there during my 20+ years of insulation experience and I have found Thermalok to be the highest quality cellulose insulation made.
Thermolok cellulose insulation is made from recycled natural fibers combined with 100% boron, producing the greenest as well as the safest insulation on the market. Cellulose is non-toxic and non-irritating. Cellulose meets tough fire safety tests required by state regulations. You can even take a blow torch to Cellulose and it will turn black but not burn.
Cellulose provides a higher R Value per inch than fiberglass. R Value is a rating system used to compare resistance to heat flow. Comparatively, 8.1" = R-30 for cellulose up to 13" for a R-30 when using blown-in or laid-in fiberglass.
FSK Foil Faced fiberglass batts
have a flame resistant facingon one side, so it can be stapled in place and not have to be covered by drywall. This is usually used in garages where the homeowner does not want to drywall after the insulation is installed.
Comfort Therm fiberglass batts are encapsulated in a thin plastic sack perforated with small holes on one side.
Fiberglass will melt but not burn. Fiberglass comes with a warning label on each package stating that it is a possiblecarcinogen. Fiberglass does cause irritations if the particles come in contact with the eyes or skin.
