Green is the new pink.
For years the old pink color of traditional fiberglass pretty much became synonymous with insulation. But today people are looking for new environmentally-friendly options that will insulate their homes and offices while at the same time making less of an offensive impact on nature.
There are plenty of green choices in modern insulation — recycled materials like old newspapers, denim, wool, and hemp are now being used as replacements and improvements over the old fiberglass. Spray-on insulation even has a significant amount of Castor Oil in it and all the old timers out there will remember the health benefits of this cure-all from the past, although you probably won’t get the same health boost from having it inside your wall.
The bottom line in any insulation is performance, so a quick comparison of the R-value ratings of the green options will help you find the insulation that is perfect for your situation. And if you have any questions or concerns, your Standard Insulating professionals are here to help with our knowledgeable input.
To make your switch to being green even greener (as in saving greenbacks), right now you can take advantage of not only the everyday energy savings of new and improved insulation but also save up to 50 percent of the cost of the project thanks to ENERGY STAR.
You can now qualify to receive up to half the cost of that new insulation thanks to the Assisted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program, plus receive low financing options and reduce your future energy bills by up to 40 percent. That will make the project pay for itself in no time!
