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 for property insulation services for decades and has evolved to meet the ever-growing insulating needs of home and business owners today. When determining the best insulation for your home, our installers 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 strips that can be installed between the 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 fiberglass batt doesn’t absorb moisture, is certified for superior indoor air quality performance, is fire resistant, and has a good batt insulation r value.
Blown-In Insulation – Blown-in insulation, or loose-fill insulation, is made from the same materials as fiberglass 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.
