Minnesota Insulation Plus installs GreenFiber cellulose insulation which is backed by a Lifetime Guarantee and meets or exceeds all federal regulation testing requirements. GreenFiber is made from recycled paper products, primarily newsprint, and has 85% recycled material content. The recycled paper is reduced to small pieces and fiberized, creating a product that packs tightly into building cavities, inhibits airflow, and provides an R-value of 3.6 to 3.8 per inch.
GreenFiber insulation forms a monolithic blanket of protection, blocking air infiltration and convection currents that are both primary causes of energy loss. Cellulose insulation typically requires no moisture barrier and properly installed cannot settle in a building cavity. GreenFiber insulation resists moisture, reduces noise, and preserves natural resources.
Cellulose insulation is used in both new and existing homes, as loose-fill in open attic installations and dense packed in building cavities such as walls and cathedral ceilings. In existing structures, installers drill small holes and spray the insulation into the building cavity, typically to a density of 3.5 lb. per cubic foot. When installation is complete, the holes are sealed with a plug and then the wall is finished to match the homes’ exterior.
