Fiberglass Insulation?

What It Is

Its easy installation process and relatively low cost make fiberglass insulation a common material for residential and commercial insulation projects. Fiberglass insulation can be installed in every type of space:

Unfinished walls
Floors
Ceilings
Between studs, joists, and beams

What It’s Made Of

Fiberglass insulation is made with a combination of fine glass fibers and plastic. Here’s what the fiberglass-making process looks like:

Molten glass is transformed into small fibers
A liquid binder is poured over small fibers, and made even smaller to allow for cooling
After being transported to a conveyor belt, the glass pieces combine to form one bigger chunk of glass that travels through an oven
Now you have the batts, which are cut into even pieces

How It Works

By capturing air pockets, fiberglass insulation hinders—but doesn’t fully halt—the spread of hot air, cold air, and sound. As a result, the amount of air that both enters and escapes your building decreases. With fiberglass insulation, your rooms will stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Talk about premium year-round comfort.

What is R-Value?

R-value measures how well insulation materials resist the flow of heat. The higher the R-value, the better insulated a building is. Your area’s climate will help determine what R-value you should look for in insulation. Homes and businesses in colder states necessitate insulation with a higher R-value, whereas insulation with a lower R-value is sufficient for those in warmer states. Since fiberglass insulation can be installed in layers, it offers a high R-value.
