Economical Insulation with Fiberglass
Fiberglass Insulation consists of extremely fine glass fibers that work to slow the spread of heat, cold, and sound in your home. It is commonly used in two different types of insulation, which are batts and rolls, and loose-fill. Fiberglass can be placed in unfinished walls, floors, and ceilings. It is fitted between studs, joists, and beams.
Fiberglass Insulation traps pockets of air, keeping rooms warm in the winter and cooler in the summer. Limiting the amount of air coming into and leaking from a home can work to make a home comfortable. It’s important to note that fiberglass limits air movement, but doesn’t stop it completely.
Fiberglass insulation is also both moisture- and fire-resistant.
R-value is the measurement of prevention of the flow of heat in and out of a structure. The higher the R-value, the better it is insulated.
Blown-In: 2.2-2.7 R-value per inch
Rolls: Up to 4.3 R-value per inch
