Choosing to insulate a home or commercial building is a self-evident and immediate way to reduce your impact on the environment and reduce your carbon footprint . Better insulation saves energy and reduces heating cost. At Devana we take our environmental responsibilities seriously, reflected in the products and solutions we provide.
Going Green with Insulation
Our Cellulose Fibre Insulation solutions are amazingly eco-friendly. In fact Cellulose Fibre Insulation is actually carbon negative, essentially meaning that it stores more carbon than is released during manufacture. In every tonne of Warmcel Cellulose Fibre Insulation, there is the CO2 equivalent to -0.92 tonnes of carbon.
This type of insulation is made with recycled newspapers. By recycling newspapers into insulation there are a number of environmental benefits. By creating insulation with recycled products, they’re no longer left to decompose in landfills and release greenhouse gases.
Enable a Healthy Environment
Choosing Devana’s eco-insulation solutions such as Cellulose Fibre Insulation can help maintain a healthy humidity inside a building. This can prevent the development of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and mites. Whenever there is a difference in humidity between inside and outside, moisture will be transmitted from the damp side to the dry side. This is known as breathing. Cellulose Fibre Insulation naturally regulates humidity levels for healthy, comfortable, and ‘breathable’ environments.
Staying Fire Safe
Cellulose insulation is particularly fire-resistant. This type of insulation can withstand fires as well as slowing their spread, therefore giving vital time to treat the fire. The paper within Cellulose Fibre Insulation can smother fire as it is in such a dense form. Cellulose insulation is also created with natural inorganic salts. All of the material we install meets or exceeds the fire protection standards required for timber-frame construction and conventional lofts. In fact, when burned, a building with cellulose insulation survives 57% longer than fibreglass insulated structures.
