Cellulose is made from recycled wood fiber, such as newsprint and other fibrous paper products. The finely shredded fibrous material may be compressed tightly into closed building cavities, such as exterior walls to gain insulation value and restrict air-flow, or in interior walls to provide an effective sound inhibitor. At an R-value of 3.6 to 3.8 per inch, loosely-blown cellulose is a very effective and economical option to increase the insulation value on an empty wall/floor or on a wall/floor which already has some existing insulation.

Diversified Energy specifically installs Applegate Stabilized name brand cellulose due to the product’s ability to deter dust and all types of self-grooming insects. With a self-contained dry adhesive, Applegate Stabilized Insulation is designed to be damp-sprayed onto walls in order to completely fill and insulate them. As both a Class-1 Fire Retardant and BurnBarrier™ fire retardant, Applegate also provides an excellent source of fire protection. Applegate Stabilized Cellulose Insulation can even reduce your utility bill by up to 40% because it greatly reduces the flow of heat and amount of air which can enter your home.

Cellulose insulation provides a happy medium between fiberglass and spray foam insulation and is considered an excellent “bang for your buck” by many who have installed it. Many of our clients have used cellulose in combination with spray foam to create a safe, healthy, energy-efficient home at a reasonable price.

Termite season began late March and typically dies down throughout July. Other than experiencing the nightly nuisance and the potential property damage from termites we also hear and – ourselves – fall victim to recycling ...

Niki Aguillard and her crew came out to my house and did a fantastic job! They texted me what time they would arrive and they were on time. They made... sure every crack was sealed in my house and even put door sliders on the doors to keep the air from flowing in. They completely insulated the attic. They were very friendly and kind overall did an amazing job I’m very pleased with how they went over and beyond to ease every concern I had and I really appreciate their hard work. Would definitely recommend Diversified Energy “Plug into Comfort”read more

First off these are some friendly and professional people! They came in to our home and had nothing but respect and explained things in a way that... was more family/friend based than technical. BIG shout out to Mike and Ryan for the amazing help and work! They tested the house and did all the checks as well as made sure we had stuff in place. They hooked us up with a great light package that should help our energy use as well as lighting needs. Everything is top notch and amazing customer service!read more
