Looking for ways to cut down on your heating and cooling costs? You may want to consider re-insulating your home with fiberglass. One of the oldest and most widely used types of insulation, fiberglass is great for both new construction and retrofit projects.
Fiberglass insulation traps heat in its tiny fibers, stopping conductive heat transfer (as opposed to radiant heat transfer, which requires reflective foil or radiant barrier insulation). Made of up to 40 percent recycled material, fiberglass is one of the most environmentally friendly types of insulation.
A Closer Look at Fiberglass Insulation
Like cellulose, fiberglass insulation has excellent soundproofing abilities and can be installed in all areas of your Niles home:
- Crawl spaces
Fiberglass insulation can be blown in or installed as rolls and batts. Blown-in fiberglass insulation is ideal for small crevices and gaps in the attic and other areas in your home. Rolls and batts blanket fiberglass insulation fits snugly between wall and floor joists and is ideal for areas that are relatively free from obstructions.
Not only can fiberglass insulation help you save on your energy bills, it can also:
- Make your home in Niles more comfortable year round
- Reduce outside noises and noises between different rooms and levels inside (fiberglass is one of the best types of insulation for soundproofing)
- Help improve the overall efficiency of your air conditioner and furnace
- Promote a healthier environment (decreased energy consumption means reduced carbon dioxide and fewer greenhouse gas emissions)
- Help increase the market value of your home
Wherever you install fiberglass insulation in your Niles home, you’ll see—and feel—the difference it makes. Older homes that tend to be leakier and less energy-efficient can especially benefit from fiberglass insulation (and other types of insulation).
