Applegate Insulation

Applegate's 30+ years of quality insulation.

Cellulose has been used for over 200 years to insulate homes, even being used in Thomas Jefferson's Monticello home in Virginia. Cellulose as an insulation was originally patented in England in the late 1800's and was used extensively in America in the 1950's as it was the only insulation capable of making electrically-heated homes affordable to heat; as Applegate's founder, Aaron Applegate, learned. From his experiences selling electrical heating in the 50's, Aaron began to sell cellulose insulation, and then to producing Applegate Cellulose Insulation in the late 1970's.

         Third Party Testing


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.
