Ecocel : Thermal Applications
In warm or cold climates, inadequate insulation and air leakage are leading causes of energy waste in most buildings. Since Ecocel Cellulose is a loose material, it has the benefit of filling voids and eliminating air pockets common with other insulation materials. Density, which is important in reducing air infiltration and increasing effective R-Value*, is higher with cellulose than with other types of loose insulation. As a result, Ecocel Cellulose performs better by reducing air conditioning or heating costs from 30% up to 50%.
Once the energy savings have paid for the installation cost, energy conserved is money saved–and the annual savings will increase when utility rates go up. As is happening now.
Ecocel : Acoustical Applications
Ecocel Cellulose have proven itself as one of the most efficient low-cost solution to reduce sound propagation from one area to another. Its application encloses the noise generating source and acts like a sound barrier or absorber keeping noise levels down.
Commercial buildings, multi-apartments buildings, sound and music studios as well as houses can benefit greatly from Ecocel Cellulose material to attenuate effectively sound or undesired noise. Here are some examples :
- Reduce obnoxious noise emitting from your neighbours or mechanical equipment for a quiet living or working space.
- Reduce noise or sound levels in specific areas from surrounding ones for better quality of living.
