Benefits of Cellulose Insulation – Hear from Three Homeowners


In southern Louisiana, extreme summer temperature, bone-chilling winter weather, and perpetual humidity create year-round discomfort and expense for homeowners. Many of our clients come to us with questions about the best insulation to promote consistent, comfortable indoor temperatures, energy and cost savings, and moisture prevention.

Cellulose insulation improves more than comfort

While many options exist, one of the most popular and effective is blown-in cellulose insulation. Cellulose insulation consists almost entirely of post-consumer recycled paper products, making it the most environmentally friendly insulation on the market. Because the cellulose fibers are chemically treated to improve resistance to mold and mildew, pest infiltration, and even fire, cellulose adds value beyond insulating homes.

Its consistency allows installers to spray cellulose into nooks and crannies of any shape or size, and this dense pack technique air seals while increasing R-value. By sealing air leaks around wire and pipe channels, ductwork, recessed lighting and cracks and crevices, cellulose makes homes more energy efficient, significantly reducing energy waste.

Here’s what our clients have to say about the benefits of cellulose insulation

“This past Saturday, with the humidity, that heat wave, and the sun shining all day, the hottest the in-house temperature reached was 77°F during a 5 hour period. By 6:30pm, it was back to 73°F!  Before the insulation, the temperature would have hit the high 80s and would not have lowered until around 9:00p, so the insulation has helped to make the house more livable during the summer heat!”  says Brian Rachal of Metairie, LA.

Dave Stets of New Orleans told us, “We bought a Katrina house and are fixing it up. It had no insulation in the walls and the air conditioners ran most of the time. The next day after Sunlight dense packed our walls the AC was only running half as much!”

“Now that the insulation is installed my air conditioner is running roughly half as often as it used to. I can finally cool down my new, old house! A huge thanks to Sunlight Contractors. I would recommend them to anyone looking to make their house more efficient,” Mike Horstmeyer of Baton Rouge, LA
