So why is denim insulation so popular? Here are a few reasons:
- It's quiet. Especially here in NY (depending on where you live) it can get pretty noisy. Denim insulation has an acoustical rating that is about 30% higher than most other common types of insulation, so it keeps your home more quiet.
- It keeps your home warmer. Denim insulation has great R-Value, and saves you money during the colder months.
- It's save and healthy. Generally it has an EPA product applied to it that makes it more fire resistant. It also is generally low/no VOC. Most of all (in my opinion) it does not have the itchiness that fiberglass insulation has
So what is the down side? Cost. It costs on average about twice as much as traditional insulation. If you are able to work through the cost of it though, then denim insulation is a great alternative to consider for your home
