Cellulose Insulation … Specifications and Downsides
I have seen specifications for cellulose installation and mention of “cautions or downsides” scattered through some of the threads here at GBA.
Just trying to consolidate some thoughts here.
HERE ARE SOME STARTER THOUGHTS…..
Should we really avoid recycled newsprint?
If more people decided to jump on the Cellulose train….
Seems like there would not be enough of the “clean” production scraps that Robert Riversong has mentioned.
Which additives are safe and necessary and which to avoid?
On example of a warning is in Dr Joe’s “Don’t be Dense” paper……
Do not use cellulose(alone) in an unvented roof.
That one should be easy to overcome…..
DO NOT DESIGN UNVENTED ROOFS
