Fiberglass and Cellulose Insulation

Trusted insulation in Minnesota homes.

Fiberglass is an attractive choice for home insulation because it poses no fire hazard, conserves 12 times as much energy as is lost in its production, and it may reduce residential energy costs by up to 40%. It is also one of the least expensive building materials with one of the greatest returns on investment. Cellulose, a plant-based insulator, is the oldest form of home insulation and, is produced from recycled newspapers treated with chemicals that reduce its ignition potential. This material provides a number of advantages over fiberglass – it is inexpensive, significantly reduces airflow, and is not believed to pose any serious health risks.

Attic and crawlspace Vacuum Service

One of the most important places to keep well-insulated is the attic, especially at the top of the walls. It is not always easy or effective to simply add more blown in or blanket insulation over your old stuff. Also, rodents and other pests can make this space toxic. We often recommend complete removal of old insulation, which can include vermiculite, cellulose, fiberglass, and other materials. Let Polar Insulating vacuum out your old and inefficient ceiling insulation. Then we'll help you choose the best new materials. This may be the most cost-effective remodelling task you'll ever perform.
