Fiberglass insulation is a type of insulation material used frequently in both residential and commercial buildings because it can help regulate temperature and improve energy efficiency. This type of insulation is made up of tiny, fine fibers of glass that are bound together by a lightweight, flexible insulation product.

What is Fiberglass Insulation?

Here are a few things we want you to know about fiberglass insulation:

  • Fiberglass insulation is available in many different forms. For example, it comes in rolls, batts, or even loose-fill. The choice of form depends on the specific application and the area that needs to be insulated.
  • In most cases, fiberglass insulation is relatively easy to install. Fiberglass insulation can be installed in walls, ceilings, floors, and attics. It is typically placed between wall studs, and it can be adapted to meet different construction needs.
  • The effectiveness of fiberglass insulation is determined by its R-value, which represents the material’s thermal resistance. Fiberglass insulation has a relatively high R-value, so it can effectively resist the flow of heat. The density and thickness of the insulation are factors that affect its R-value.
  • One of the main benefits of fiberglass insulation is that it is non-corrosive, which means it won’t decay or corrode over time. Additionally, it is not a food source for mold, which makes it resistant to mold growth when properly installed and maintained.
