Are you passionate about “green living” and interested in working towards a better and safer environment? There are many things you can do in your everyday life to help sustain the environment, but there are also a number of things you can do to your home to make it “green” – just in time for Earth Day!
Having great insulation in your home not only cuts down on heating and air conditioning costs, but also can be used to improve indoor air quality. Have you ever heard of recycled denim insulation? This is a great high-performance, no waste material that can offer many advantages over your typical spray foam or fiberglass insulation.
- As mentioned above, recycled denim offers better indoor air quality for your family. It’s completely natural and safe!
- Recycled denim contains about 85% recycled content; talk about sustainability! It’s also recyclable at the end of the insulation’s life – double whammy! The recycled materials never reach a landfill and takes much less energy to produce than fiberglass.
- Lower HVAC costs are always worth it and recycled denim insulation results in this immediately.
- Recycled denim also creates a quieter interior for homeowners. No more worrying about the sleeping baby upstairs and the TV surround sound waking him.
While recycled denim is easy to get, it is also more costly than your traditional insulation. Homeowners need to decide what is more important to them when building or remodeling their home and eco-friendly materials are just one of the major choices.
