What Types of Fiberglass Insulation are Available?
Fiberglass insulation is made from glass fibers and other materials woven together and held by a bonding substance. Fiberglass has been used in property insulation services for decades and has evolved to meet the ever-growing insulation needs of home and business owners today. When determining the best insulation for your home, our installers will consider location, age of the property, accessibility, and what the space is used for. Fiberglass insulation is available in two forms:
- Fiberglass Batt Insulation – Fiberglass batt insulation is manufactured in large, rolled strips that can be installed between ceiling and floor joists of your home, as well as between your exterior walls. It is a great solution for residential, multifamily, and commercial properties because it doesn’t absorb moisture, is certified for superior indoor air quality performance, and is fire resistant.
- Blown-In Insulation – Blown-in insulation, or loose-fill insulation, is made from the same materials as batt insulation. When installed in open areas such as the attic, our team runs a large hose into the space, and the fiberglass is blown in. However, blown-in fiberglass can be dense packed into closed areas such as exterior walls and between floors by creating an opening and blowing the fiberglass into the space.
What Are the Benefits of Fiberglass Insulation?
Today, there is a wide variety of residential and commercial insulation available. As an experienced and licensed team, we always ensure that your home or business’s insulation is installed properly to provide you with the most value and comfort. When properly installed, fiberglass insulation offers a variety of great benefits.
- Reduce Energy Costs – The most obvious benefit of fiberglass insulation is energy savings. Fiberglass creates a thermal barrier that protects your home from the weather outside so that you can stay comfortable throughout the year.
- Reduce Noise Transfer – Fiberglass insulation will reduce the noise transfer from outside of your home. If you live along a busy street, near train tracks, or in a multiunit complex, fiberglass insulation will help keep your home more peaceful.
- Cost Effective Options – Fiberglass is one of the most affordable insulation options available on the market, and it is still one of the best insulation types.
- Versatile – What makes fiberglass insulation the preferred insulation type of homes and businesses is its versatility. It can be installed in new construction and older home nearly anywhere on the property.
- Fire Prevention – Fiberglass insulation is ideal for many applications because it is fire resistant. It may help prevent the spread of fire from one unit to another, saving you money in repairs and allowing valuable time for people to exit the building safely.
