Can Insulation Be Reused?

Do you need to insulate your home? Are you wondering if insulation can be reused instead of going to waste? The answer varies depending on the type of insulation material. Keep reading to learn more about two types of insulation that can be reused—cellulose and fiberglass.

Cellulose Insulation

For those who want to stay as environmentally friendly as possible, installing cellulose insulation is the ideal solution. When installed by professionals, it can often be completely recovered and reused on site, leaving hardly any excess material to go to waste. Special machines used in the blown-in process allow extra material to be vacuumed up and blown back in on site or salvaged for future installation.

Aside from being recyclable, cellulose insulation is beneficial for plenty of other reasons.

Cellulose insulation:

  • Consists of up to 80 – 85 percent recycled material.
  • Takes less energy to make than other insulation materials.
  • Is made from consumer paper products, which are tied to responsible forestry management and a renewable resource of planted trees.

While most insulation material will help you reduce your energy bills and maximize energy efficiency, cellulose is one of the most eco-friendly types of insulation.

Read additional information about cellulose by visiting the Cellulose Insulation Manufacturers Association.

Fiberglass Insulation

Fiberglass insulation can also be reused after the initial installation. When installed by professionals, it can be removed easily and put back in place. Fiberglass can also be reclaimed from demolition debris and recycled into a new product.

Fiberglass insulation contains a relatively high amount of recycled content and can help lower energy bills and maximize the comfort of your home.
