Nu-Wool Insulation keeps the heat where it belongs.


FACTS: Nu-Wool Cellulose Insulation reduces air infiltration better than conventional insulation materials.  In the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Test: "The researcheers concluded that cellulose performs 38% better than fiberglass insulated structures.  Also, their research found that fiberglass products declined as much as 40% in R-value...when the temperature in the attic is 20 degrees or lower."  Buildings insulated with Nu-Wool Insulation stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer...all while saving energy.

What is Nu-Wool Insulation?

Nu-Wool Insulation is an energy-saving cellulose insulation made from recycled newspapers.  Nu-Wool Insulation, with its superior thermal and air infiltration properties, is installed in both attics and walls of residential and commercial buildings.  This environmentally friendly, "green" insulation provides up to 40% savings on energy bills when compared to conventional insulation materials.  Nu-Wool Insulation also contains an E.P.A registered fungicide, making it resistant to the growth of mold.

What is the Nu-Wool WALLSEAL System?

The Nu-Wool WALLSEAL system is a spray-in-place cellulose insulation product that is applied to the wall cavities of new construction.  Nu-Wool WALLSEAL is an insulation product high in R-Value, made by Nu-Wool Company, a business with over 50 years proven performance standards.

"Effective R-Value"

R-Value is a measure of how well and insulation product resists heat and cold.  R-Value is the result of a laboratory test in which an insulation material is sandwiched between a cool and warm surface.  The ability of the material to resist temperature differences results in an R-Value for that material.

Nu-Wool Insulation is the environmentally-friendly choice.


FACT: For over 50 years, Nu-Wool Company has been using recycled newspaper to manufacture its premium insulation.  In fact, producing Nu-Wool Cellulose insulation is actually more energy efficient than manufacturing fiberglass insulation.
