We all know how prevalent the “green" movement is and the materials we put inside our walls and ceilings are turning a deeper shade of green everyday.

Cellulose Insulation
Cellulose insulation is made from 80% recycled newspaper. A variety of chemicals are required to hold the insulation together and make it flame resistant. Cellulose insulation has the added benefit of being less damaging to the wallet than wool insulation.
 
Radiant Barriers
Radiant Barriers are most effective in warmer climates such as the southern California or Florida. Typically they are installed in the attic. They can either be installed as part of the roof sheathing or directly on the rafters after construction. These aluminum panels reflect the heat of the sun away from your living space.
 
Expanding Spray Foam
By far, the best and most efficient green product is polyurethane spray foam insulation. This is a vegetable oil based substance that is sprayed in, and then expands and hardens. It is the most efficient way of insulating a house because, as it expands, it fills all the cracks and holes completely.
 
In addition to providing excellent insulation, it is the only way to keep water and moisture completely out of your home. It is effective at keeping out pests as well, and is naturally fire resistant unlike other kinds of insulation.
 
Spray foam is environmentally friendly and saves homeowners anywhere from 20% to 40% of their utility bill every month, depending on where they live. This saves you money, and it also helps save the planet.
