Applegate Insulation

There’s No Better Insulation than Applegate Insulation®
Applegate has been a premium cellulose insulation for over 30 years and during that time we have ceaselessly sought to improve our performance and quality. Applegate meets and often exceeds the standards of loose-fill cellulose insulation as described in the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) C 739, Consumer Product Safety Commission Standard, 16 CFR Part 1209, and the Federal Trade Commission Standard, 16 CFR Part 460.

In order to meet and or surpass these standards Applegate utilizes third party testing. The third party testing which Applegate utilizes is not required by law, but it is required by our sense of duty to homeowners and contractors who use the product. We seek to provide the best possible insulation to reduce energy demands, keep you safe and to provide lasting peace of mind and comfort. Because of that we have sought out the best third party testing agencies to give you peace of mind about your insulation investment.

Building Performance Institute

America’s existing housing needs help. Many of the 128 million homes in this country were constructed before modern energy and building codes were established. These homes often suffer from performance problems ranging from inflated energy consumption to poor thermal comfort to indoor air quality issues.

We are a national standards development and credentialing organization for residential energy efficiency retrofit work – providing training through a network of training affiliate organizations, individual certifications, company accreditations and quality assurance programs. As an independent, not-for-profit organization, we bring together leading building science experts from across North America to develop our standards using a consensus-based methodology.

The result? Sustainable, green-collar jobs in local communities that improve the comfort, health, safety, durability and energy efficiency of America’s existing houses.
