What is Fiberglass Insulation?
Made from glass or sand particles and processed to create a fibrous thermal barrier fiberglass insulation has been used to protect homes since the 1930s. It’s the oldest form of “modern” day insulation materials. It is very cost-effective and provides excellent insulative properties (R-value). It comes in rolled batt or loose-fill blown-in styles that each have their own benefits and best use cases. Modern fiberglass insulation is often made from recycled materials, helping its standing as an eco-friendlier and more sustainable product.

Types of Fiberglass Insulation Installation
Fiberglass insulation can be applied to your home in a few different ways. The most traditional form is a rolled batt. We can also install loose fiberglass insulation by blowing it into your attic or use bonded blankets of fiberglass.
Most commonly found in homes, fiberglass batt insulation is lightweight and can be installed quickly in any open space. Some versions come with facing that acts as a vapor barrier. Unfaced batt insulation doesn’t have a moisture barrier so it should only be used when there is a vapor barrier on the exterior of your home. Fiberglass batt insulation is one of the most affordable ways to insulate your home.
Rolled Fiberglass Blankets
Similar to batt insulation, these blankets come in rolls that are cut to the desired length. Also available faced and unfaced, they provide the same protection as batts. This type of insulation is best installed during new construction when you have open access to all the areas of your home you wish to insulate. The rolls of insulation are easily manipulated to fit your space.
The best type of fiberglass insulation to add after the fact would be blown-on. Using a special machine, chunks of fiberglass insulation are blown into your space to the desired thickness. Since this is made of loose fibers it can mold around wiring, pipes, and other elements in your ceiling or walls. It can also compress over time so if your home already has blown-in insulation you may need to add more.
Add More Fiberglass Insulation to Your Home
Some older homes were built before insulation was mandatory and some are simply not insulated enough. The good news is that you can almost always add additional insulation to your home. Our fiberglass insulation installers can either remove your old or damaged insulation or add new layers of batts, blankets, or blown-in fiberglass insulation. The best time to perform this installation in walls would be during construction. For your ceiling and attic, the best time to retrofit fiberglass insulation would be during a roof replacement when we can have unabated access to your attic.
Other Types of Residential Insulation
Even though fiberglass insulation is the most common and cost-effective way to insulate your home, there are other material options that can be just as, if not more advantageous. Emmons can use these other types of insulation to improve your home’s energy efficiency, comfort, and protection from the elements.
The newest form of insulation used in homes today is spray foam. It is incredibly efficient and creates a virtually impermeable barrier for your home. It must be installed by a licensed professional and when done correctly, you can see a drastic improvement in your home’s sound insulation and energy-efficiency.
Known to be an eco-friendly form of insulation, cellulose is made from recycled materials such as cardboard and paper. It is surprisingly very fire resistant and it is affordable, although fiberglass insulation typically performs better across the board. Since it is installed as loose material cellulose insulation may degrade over time.
