Upgrading Your Home

Enhance and Protect your Home with Nu-Wool

Homes or structures that are drafty, feel unseasonably hot or cold, develop icicles or ice dams or have heating and cooling units that run constantly could benefit from having additional insulation added to them. 

Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation or Energy Care Cellulose Insulation can be added to the attic and sidewalls of existing homes to result in a more comfortable, quiet structure.  No matter where you live, Nu-Wool insulation products work around the clock, all year long, for the life of your home.

The best way to determine if you need additional insulation is to measure the depth of insulation currently in your attic. If there is less than R-49, (19 inches of blown fiber glass, or 12-13 inches of cellulose), you could benefit by adding more insulation to your attic. Adding either Nu-Wool Premium or Energy Care Cellulose Insulation on top of other types of insulation reduces air infiltration and improves the performance of your existing insulation.

If your attic has ample insulation and your home still feels drafty and cold in the winter, or too warm in the summer, the exterior walls may not be well insulated. Basements and crawl spaces need proper amounts of insulation as well. Of course, doors and windows should also be checked for air tightness.

For the DIY crowd, Energy Care Cellulose Insulation is available at select retailers or leave the work to the professionals, contact your local Nu-Wool Retrofit Dealer today!
