We offer Energy Star certified fiberglass insulation in Plant City, FL.
Fiberglass insulation is a type of insulation commonly used in home walls, floors, and attics. Fiberglass is made of fibers of sand and recycled glass. It can be found in two physical formats: woven together into thick batts or left loose for blow-in insulation. The batts of insulation are sized properly for standard stud widths, so installation leaves little to no pockets of air. The loose fill is blown into hard-to-reach areas, such as wall cavities or attics.
Fiberglass insulation has been used for many years for its cost effectiveness. It is fairly low cost to install, but provides high-quality insulation for an extended period of time. In fact, fiberglass insulation keeps its R-value (or its ability to insulate) for longer than other insulation materials will. It will also resist mildew and molding because it will not absorb water. Fiberglass is also fire-resistant, leaving you with peace of mind when using it in the walls of your home.
Other benefits of choosing fiberglass for your home insulation include:
- Automatic sound-proofing features. The fiberglass provides a sound barrier to lessen the effects of noise within or outside the home, providing you with comfort and privacy.
- The chance to do something good for the environment. Fiberglass can be made from up to 80% recycled glass, reusing material that would have been sent to a landfill. The sand used in the insulation is a natural product that automatically renews itself in abundance.
