Fiberglass is a popular choice for insulation. Fiberglass batts are the cheapest, easiest way to insulate your home. However, they're often installed poorly and even small gaps can risk the insulation efficiency. Having fiberglass roof insulation professionally installed is one of most environmentally friendly things a homeowner can do. This project offers many benefits, such as, the reduction of heating and cooling costs with proper insulation.
The most common type of insulation, fiberglass insulation, is composed of glass, which is used in a wide variety of applications. As an insulator, fiberglass slows the spread of heat, cold, and sound in homes. By trapping pockets of air, it keep rooms warm in the winter and cool in the summer, thereby reducing a home’s energy consumption.
Fiberglass roof insulation is available in a wide variety of thicknesses. Fiberglass can be installed in various parts of a home’s envelope. It can be pink, yellow, white or green, depending on the manufacturer. Commonly found in blanket form, called batts, it is available in bags containing standard pre-cut lengths and widths.
Accurate cutting is essential. A batt cut too small leaves gaps and one cut too large groups up and leaves voids. The tiny space around windows and doors is a major spot for air leakage. Don't pack the fiberglass too tight or it will bow the verticals and cause trouble with the operation of the window.
Fiberglass batt insulation will insulate properly when air can be effectively trapped. Fibreglass roof insulation is inherently non-absorbent - it means that moisture stays on the surface of the material and does not penetrate. Strong and long-lasting: pound for pound fiberglass is stronger than sheet metal. Fiberglass has a high resistance to corrosion; it will not rust. Fire-retardant resins can make it stand up against fire and will only char and not burn up.
