Highest Efficiency Insulations: Cellulose-Foam-Foils
45 Years Experience - Mobile’s Oldest Cellulose Insulation Dealer
We've been Green for over Thirty Years!
For over thirty years Happy Home Insulation has installed High efficiency insulations – Cellulose Insulation, Foam Insulation, and high-tech Foil Insulation in the Mobile, Alabama area.
Insulation is an area of your home that isn’t visable, but the results are extremely noticeable! Consumers that educate themselves about insulation have a strong tendency to use cellulose insulation, foam insulation, and foil insulations because the benefits are so much greater- at least 38% more effective than the conventional insulation (fiberglass insulation).

Why Happy Home Insulation Customers Choose Cellulose Insulation:
Cellulose is Green
Insulation is “green.” It’s made of 80% post-consumer recycled material and has the highest recycled content of any insulation
available. The fiber is chemically treated with natural non-toxic borate
compounds (20% by weight) to resist fire, insects and mold.
infiltration is often the largest cause for heat loss from a structure.
Cellulose Insulation naturally protects against air infiltration and
air leaks due to its low air permeability. It has an R-Value of more than 3.8 per inch in comparison to fiber glass which has an R-Value 2.2 per inch.
Cellulose earns “green” points because it requires less energy than fiberglass or foam to manufacture. The process for producing Cellulose Insulation is extremely energy efficient. It takes at least ten times more energy to make fiberglass insulation then cellulose insulation and approximately 20 times more to manufacture foam insulation because it is made mostly from petroleum.
Waste paper decays in landfills and produces greenhouse gases such as methane and carbon dioxide in the process. If this waste paper were recycled and converted into Cellulose Insulation, it would save a tremendous amount of energy. No other low cost building insulation can do this. In 2007 about 3,000,000 tons of newspapers went to U.S. landfills. This paper could have been used to produce an additional 200,000,000 bags of Cellulose Insulation. The Cellulose Insulation Manufacturers Association (CIMA) claims that insulating a 1500 ft2 house with cellulose will recycle as much newspaper as an individual will consume in 40 years. If all new homes were insulated with cellulose this would remove 3.2 million tons of newsprint from the nation’s waste stream each year.
Cellulose insulation is the Healthiest & Safest
Cellulose Insulation has low toxicity. Unlike foam insulations, which have global warming potential higher than that of carbon dioxide, cellulose does not produce significant gaseous emissions. Although OSHA states that cellulose is a dust nuisance, requiring a dust mask during installation, it compares very favorably to the potential NIOSH cancer risk of fiberglass or toxic off gassing from some types of foam insulation.
Cellulose insulation is the safest home insulation. The natural fire retardants are so effective that cellulose insulation is one of the most fire resistant building materials found in a home. Cellulose is a natural air barrier and some studies have shown that the dense nature of cellulose insulation can actually suffocate a fire. It will actually slow the spread of fire, giving occupants the extra time they need to reach safety and the fire company more time to arrive and possibly save the structure.
