What is Fiberglass Insulation and How Does it Work?

Fiberglass insulation is a traditional insulating material and the type most people think of first. It is comprised of thin glass filaments that are woven together to create fiberglass batt insulation. Fiberglass insulation is also manufactured as loose product.

Fiberglass insulation acts as a thermal barrier to prevent heat from moving to a colder area – from outside to inside your home in warm months and from inside to outside your home in cold winter months. Fiberglass insulation is available in two forms: blown-in (loose-fill) and batt (blanket) and can be installed in almost any area of your home including walls, attics and crawl spaces.

Adding fiberglass insulation can help reduce your energy bills and make your home more comfortable all year long. Call us at Whitson Insulation and we can answer questions about your next insulation project.
