Denim insulation has been a product that has been growing in popularity for many years. But why is denim insulation so popular? What are the benefits of denim insulation? Here are just a few of the benefits of denim insulation:
Eco-Friendly - First of all, it just makes sense. Many denim products (pants, jackets, etc) are destined for the landfill. But when they are recycled into insulation, it helps the environment.
Great Acoustical Rating - Denim insulation has a higher acoustical rating than its counterparts. This leads to a quieter home.
No Itch - That's right, no itch. But besides that it is also no/low VOC and is also typically treated with a product that helps make it fire resistant too.
Great Thermal Performance - It saves you money by keeping your home warmer
But with any great product, there is always a down side. The down side with denim insulation is cost... It costs nearly twice as much as other insulation and can really hurt your wallet at first. But if you are able to "take the blow" with the initial cost, it is a fantastic product to have in your home.
