What Is Fiberglass Insulation?

Fiberglass has been the number one material for insulating homes and commercial buildings for decades. The insulation is manufactured by spinning molten glass into extremely fine and flexible glass fibers. Most manufacturers include 20 to 30 percent recycled glass content in the fiberglass production process, making it an environmentally responsible choice.

What Is Blanket Insulation?

Fiberglass is available in multiple forms, including blanket insulation. This is the most common and widely available type of insulation on the market today. Blankets are available in standard widths designed to fit snugly between wall studs, floor joists and ceiling rafters that are built to code. Long blankets can be trimmed by hand to fit any required length.

Blankets often feature facings, such as foil, kraft paper or vinyl to serve as a vapor or air barrier. However, it’s best to stick with unfaced blankets if you’re installing them over existing insulation.

Benefits of Blanket Fiberglass Insulation

Whether you’re hoping to boost your existing home’s insulation or you want your newly constructed building to be as efficient as possible, blanket fiberglass could be right for you. Here’s how you can benefit:

  • Increase home comfort: Every floor of your home feels more comfortable when fiberglass blankets slow heat transfer through the walls, floor and ceiling.
  • Save energy: With the ability to keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, your furnace and air conditioner don’t run as much, reducing your energy consumption and saving you money all year round.
  • Prolong HVAC equipment lifespan: Your heating and cooling system breaks down less frequently and lasts years longer when insulation helps your HVAC equipment run less often.
  • Help the environment: Reducing your energy consumption and choosing fiberglass blankets made from recycled content are beneficial for the environment.
  • Reduce noise infiltration: If you’re tired of traffic and construction noises transmitting through the walls, bolstering the insulation with fiberglass blankets may help make your home more peaceful.
