When most people think of insulation, the first thing that comes to mind is fiberglass insulation. As the most common and widely used type of insulation, fiberglass insulation is made from melted glass and sand. It comes in two forms – batt or blown-in (also known as loose fill). Fiberglass batt insulation is commonly used to insulate floors, walls, ceilings, and attics.
Fiberglass insulation helps create a more comfortable living and working space all year long. When properly installed, fiberglass insulation offers a variety of great benefits including improved energy efficiency to help reduce energy bills, and reduced noise transfer. Fiberglass insulation is a cost-effective insulation option, more affordable than other forms of insulation.
Fiberglass batt insulation is a great solution for residential, multifamily, commercial, and government insulation projects. Fiberglass batts are available in widths suited to standard spacing of wall studs and attic or floor joists. Batt insulation:
- Has excellent acoustics
- Is noncorrosive
- Does not absorb moisture
- Is noncombustible when using unfaced batts
- Won’t settle over time
- Is lightweight
- Is certified for superior indoor air quality (IAQ) performance
Blown-in fiberglass insulation is a loose version of well-known fiberglass batt insulation. Blown-in fiberglass insulation is often installed in open areas like attics and can be dense packed into closed areas including exterior walls and between floors.
