Environmental Factors

Cellulose fibre insulation is incredibly eco-friendly. It’s carbon negative, free of VOC’s and toxins, and helps maintain a healthy indoor environment through humidity control.

Carbon Negative

Storing more carbon than is released during its manufacture, cellulose insulation is ‘carbon negative’. The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) tells us that each tonne of Warmcel has a CO2 equivalent of minus 0.92 tonnes of carbon.

Historically, used newspapers went to landfill where their decomposition released the ‘greenhouse gases’ methane and CO2 into the atmosphere. Recycling newspaper into insulation is not only a great way to keep buildings warm but also prevents this contribution towards climate change.

Breathing Buildings

Cellulose eco-insulation also helps to maintain a healthy humidity inside buildings, preventing the development of bacteria, viruses, fungi and mites. When there is a difference in humidity between inside and outside, moisture will be transmitted from the damp side to the dry side, a process known as ‘breathing’. This means that the insulation acts naturally to regulate humidity levels for a healthy and comfortable environment.
