What It’s Made Of
Fiberglass batt insulation is made with a combination of fine glass fibers and plastic. Here’s what the fiberglass-making process looks like:
How Fiberglass Batt Insulation Works
By capturing air pockets, fiberglass batt 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 batt 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.
