Fiberglass insulation is the most widely used home insulator. Fiberglass insulation can be used as blown in insulation, attic insulation, wall insulation and virtually any other home insulation application including reducing sound transfer between rooms.
Blow-In Fiberglass Insulation
Blow-in fiberglass insulation is commonly used to reinsulate existing homes. It can be blown into attics and into wall cavities both in new construction and existing homes.
Adding blown fiberglass insulation to your attic or enclosed exterior walls is a cost effective way to add R-value to your home, protecting it from the loss of conditioned air while improving overall comfort and energy efficiency.
Our roofs are exposed to different variations of heat throughout the year. Specifically, from March 22nd to September 21st South Florida has more direct heat than the rest of the year. During this time frame, the temperature in the attic may rise close to 140⁰ F. The attic space becomes a heat reservoir and the heat flows from the ceiling into the home’s living space.
The best option for Ceiling Insulation is Blowing R-38 insulation, the insulation material is spread evenly on the ceiling surface; the material most used is fiber glass. This material represents the most cost-effective energy measure.
Only a professional installation can obtain the full benefit of these materials.
