The Benefits of Fiberglass Batt Insulation
If your home or commercial building has drafty spots or your energy costs are higher than they should be, fiberglass batt insulation can help reduce energy use and increase comfort.
Some of the many benefits of fiberglass batt insulation include:
Cost: Fiberglass batt insulation is a cost-effective insulation option that is quick and easy to install. One of the most affordable insulation types, fiberglass batt doesn’t settle over time and maintains its effectiveness for the long haul, making it the perfect choice for budget conscious residential and commercial property owners.
Flexibility: Fiberglass batt insulation can be installed in a variety of areas and can easily be cut to size to maintain a tight fit within studs, rafters and joists without leaving gaps.
Energy efficiency: Fiberglass batt is one of the most energy efficient insulation materials available to homeowners. Combined with air sealing, you can enjoy a more energy efficient home and lower energy bills each month.
Comfort and security: Fiberglass batt insulation provides you and your family with a quieter home with reduced noise transfer from room to room. It’s also naturally fire resistant for extra peace of mind.
HVAC system health: Poor insulation forces your home’s HVAC system to work harder to heat or cool your home, putting additional wear and tear on the system that can reduce its life span. Fiberglass batt insulation helps keep conditioned air in your home, allowing your HVAC system to run more efficiently.
Eco-Friendliness: Fiberglass batt is made from a precise combination of glass, sand and recycled materials that contribute to the insulation’s environmentally friendly nature. Fiberglass batt insulation also helps conserve non-renewable fuel sources to help better our planet.
A Few FAQs About Fiberglass Batt Insulation
Here are the answers to some questions we’re frequently asked about fiberglass batt:
Q: Does fiberglass batt insulation mold?
A: Fiberglass batt insulation is made from tiny pieces of glass making it naturally mold resistant. The paper backing on “faced” fiberglass batts can sometimes be a food source for mold if it’s installed directly against a wet area such as basement or crawlspace walls.
Q: When should I not use fiberglass batt insulation?
A: Fiberglass batt can be used in most places in your home. The main areas to consider an alternate insulation type are places where moisture can migrate through the insulation to condense on something—such as unvented roof assemblies or directly against basement or crawlspace walls.
Q: What is the difference between batt and regular insulation?
A: Insulation comes in many forms (blown in, batt, foam, etc.) and can be made from numerous materials (fiberglass, cellulose, mineral wool, spray foam, etc.). Batt insulation is produced into flat, rectangular pieces that can be cut to fit securely. Blown in or loose fill insulation is small, loose pieces of insulation that are blown into an open wall or area in your home.
