Fiberglass insulation in the form of batt or foam board is the most affordable way to insulate any building. It comes in a wide variety to suit nearly any application purpose. It does not require special equipment for installation and can be cut to fit most spaces. When you want a budget-friendly option to make your home more energy efficient, contact us about batt and foam board insulation.
Benefits of Fiberglass Insulation
Because it is widely available and easy to install, this tends to be the most affordable product on the market. Safe and effective, it is a natural material. The finely extruded glass fibers create a beneficial thermal barrier. It stays exactly where it is installed and resists sagging and settling that other insulation types are prone to. It is even resistant to moisture and bacteria growth.
Coming in rolls that are the same width as the area between joists and wall studs, fiberglass insulation in batt form can easily be rolled out and cut to fit the areas in your home. It can even be custom cut to fit the areas that are not standard measurements like trusses and ductwork. It is incredibly easy to install and very customizable.
The downfall to cutting the material to fit is that it leaves gaps in between each piece. This allows for air and heat to penetrate and promote energy loss. While it is not as efficient as other types like spray foam insulation, it is great for homeowners on a tight budget.
In order for these to perform at the highest level possible, it is important that they be installed by home insulation professionals. Because the gaps that occur between each batt can allow air and heat to pass through, it is important to have the most accurate and precise cuts possible to minimize air infiltration. We are able to apply a special tape to help create a stronger seal at edges. We also provide a special air sealing prep prior to installation that can greatly improve the performance of your fiberglass insulation.
Combining Types of Insulation
We are passionate about giving our clients the best products possible within their budget. Sometimes combining insulation types can give them the most complete coverage at the most affordable price. We can install fiberglass insulation as normal and use spray foam insulation to fill the gaps and other areas that won’t be protected by the fiberglass.
Our team is well-trained to determine the best course of action for your home. We can make suggestions that will help prevent products from early failure like sagging, cracking and settling. While many homeowners may attempt to install fiberglass insulation or other types on their own, it is a precise job where small mistakes can cost a lot of money. Trust in our knowledge and experience to give you the most energy efficient coverage possible.
