You’ve probably seen fiberglass insulation before—it’s the pink or colorful stuff that resembles cotton candy, and it’s one of the oldest and most popular types of insulation. Fiberglass insulation has actually been around for about 80 years, and it’s still used in the majority of homes to increase energy efficiency and lower energy bills.
Available as loose-fill or blow-in or as roll batts/blankets, fiberglass insulation is used not only in many homes but in a variety of location within homes, including the attic, basement, exterior and interior walls, any crawl spaces your home has, etc.
Blown-in (loose-fill) fiberglass insulation is installed with a special blowing device and is ideal for small crevices, gaps and leaks in the attic and other areas of your home. Batt fiberglass insulation comes in pre-cut panels, and it fits snugly between wall and floor joists and is optimal for basements and crawl spaces.
