What Is Fiberglass Insulation?

As the name suggests, fiberglass insulation is comprised of extremely fine glass fibers. It’s one of the most widely used insulation materials today and has a history dating back decades. Most manufacturers include 20 to 30 percent recycled glass content in their fiberglass insulation, making this an excellent choice for the environment.

What Is Blown-in Insulation?

Fiberglass is available in multiple forms, including blown-in or loose-fill insulation. This variety must be applied using specialized equipment that distributes the insulation evenly, meaning professional installation is required. Typical applications for blown-in insulation include attic floors, wall cavities, crawl spaces and basements.

Benefits of Blown-in Fiberglass Insulation

When you choose to insulate your new or existing home with blown-in fiberglass, these are the benefits you can expect:

  • Insulate hard-to-reach places: Blown-in insulation doesn’t come in uniform sizes, making it ideal for filling oddly shaped crevices. The installation equipment also has a long range to help insulate hard-to-reach spots.
  • Make your home more comfortable: Insulation slows heat transfer, allowing your home to retain heat like a thermos in the winter and keep heat out like a drink cooler in the summer.
  • Reduce your energy bills: Better heat retention means your furnace and air conditioner don’t need to work as hard to keep your home comfortable. This reduces your energy bills and saves you money all year round.
  • Minimize strain on HVAC equipment: The less your heating and cooling system runs, the less wear and tear it experiences. Adding insulation can help your HVAC equipment break down less frequently and last years longer.
  • Benefit the environment: Minimizing your energy consumption helps the environment, and blown-in fiberglass is also made of recycled materials. This makes your decision to insulate doubly beneficial from an environmental standpoint.
  • Reduce noise levels: Uninsulated, paper-thin walls transfer sound easily. By bolstering the insulation with blown-in fiberglass, you reduce the noise able to pass through the walls, making your home’s interior more peaceful.
