The contractor and the customer can actually see the insulation in place and know that all of the areas in a wall are insulated.
How does Nu-Wool WALLSEAL compare in performance to other insulation products?
Using Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation is more than a smart choice
for it’s comfort benefits, Nu-Wool is environmentally friendly even in the manufacturing process. Fiberglass insulation is made by melting sand
and recovered glass in gas-fired furnaces. It takes at least 8,500 BTU’s of energy to produce a pound of fiberglass
insulation. Cellulose insulation is produced by processing post-consumer recovered paper through electrically driven mills.
Estimates for the embodied energy of a pound of cellulose vary from 150 to 750 BTU’s. Converting this to BTU’s-per-R,
it takes at least 10 times more energy to make fiberglass insulation than to produce cellulose insulation.
WALLSEAL is a premium insulation system. Homeowners, builders, and architects choosing this system are concerned about energy costs, sound control, and overall comfort. The installers of the WALLSEAL system are factory trained
and certified professionals, and are equipped with specialized machines designed for this application. The increased efficiency

Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation
is Best for Your Home
Independent studies by universities and research labs have shown that on the basis
of installed thermal protection performance, a cellulose insulated building will obtain better performance under real-world
conditions than a conventionally insulated building of otherwise similar construction. Savings are on the order of as much
according to field studies.
Since less energy is used to manufacture cellulose insulation, and the resulting buildings
perform closer to calculated expectations (meeting or exceeding predicted values), their fuel savings translate into lower
atmospheric emissions such as CO2 implicated in global warming, and other air-pollutants from electrical power and on-site
combustion sources known to produce acid-rain and smog.
