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 recycled glass that is spun to create insulation fibers. The fibers are developed into batts or rolls to fit into construction framing, or are used in loose form and blown in or dense packed into areas. Fiberglass insulation can be used to insulate nearly any area including walls, attics and ceilings.
Fiberglass insulation needs to be properly installed to maximize performance. To be sure your home’s fiberglass insulation achieves maximum efficiency, it’s best to hire an experienced insulation contractor to install fiberglass insulation.
Benefits of Fiberglass Insulation
When properly installed, fiberglass insulation offers a variety of benefits. Fiberglass insulation:
- Creates a more comfortable living and working space all year long
- Is more affordable than other forms of insulation
- Improves the energy efficiency of your home
- Helps lower energy bills
- Provides effective noise control
Fiberglass batt insulation is available in widths suited to standard spacing of wall studs or floor joists. We install both unfaced and kraft-faced fiberglass batt insulation and will recommend the right form for your project.
Blown-in fiberglass insulation can be installed in open cavities like attics to create an even blanket of thermal protection. Blown-in insulation can also be dense packed in cavities to help with sound reduction.
