What is the difference between fiberglass and cellulose insulation?

Cellulose insulation is comprised of recycled wastepaper fires, and is therefore environmentally friendly. Cellulose insulation saves heating and cooling energy expenditures, requires less energy to produce than traditional insulation and saves paper. Further, the typical amount of cellulose insulation required for a 1,500 square-foot home recycles 40 years’ worth of newsprint for a single individual. Because cellulose is comprised predominately of newspaper, various additives present in the newspaper have a fire-resistant property. While there is some speculation about cellulose insulation’s fire resistance, it meets all government safety standards. Fiberglass also has a high content of recycled material, and is in fact the greatest consumer of recycled glass. Fiberglass is naturally fire resistant, and this, along with a comparable price to that of cellulose insulation, has made fiberglass to become the most popular home insulation material.
