Affordable Insulation offers fiberglass batts as a budget-friendly and environmentally safe insulation option. When looking for any product, a buyer wants to settle for something that’s both affordable and effective. If you’re in the market for cheap, easy, and resistant insulation, fiberglass batts could be your solution. Fiberglass is an energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly material that can be cut to fit any gap, and is simple enough to install yourself.
Fiberglass batts are versatile and available in a wide range of R-values; however, batts aren’t the solution for someone who isn’t willing to get very hands-on. Batts must be cut to fit their spaces and must be cut well. Batts that are simply stuffed into crevices carelessly can lose a significant portion of their insulation value. Batts that are precisely cut will provide formidable insulation at an affordable price. We will counsel you on whether fiberglass batts are the right pick for your home and will professionally cut and install them if needed.
A Resistant & Fireproof Option
Fiberglass batts are a good option for those who don’t want a product that settles over time. Batts do not settle and are fire-proof, and provide a similar R-value to more expensive products such as cellulose.
Fiberglass also provides an option for those seeking greater amounts of thermal efficiency, as it is quite adept at preserving the temperature of the building or space that it encloses. This will save you costs on ventilation, air conditioning, and heating performance, and will provide stable temperatures and increased comfort for occupants of the building.
A Viable Option to Reduce Sound and Moisture
In addition to being fire-resistant, fiberglass batts are also well-protected against water. Fiberglass batts do not retain or hold water, making them resistant to mold, mildew, and other water damage-related growths that are hazardous to respiratory health. Even if a fiberglass batt gets wet during installation, it needs to simply be dried and it can be set, retaining its R-value.
Fiberglass insulation also does wonders for reducing sound from inside walls and from outside sources. Occupants of the building will not have to worry about hearing the constant settling of pipes or the noises from things that go bump in the night.
Of greater note is that since fiberglass batts can be cut to your heart’s desire, you can thicken certain areas with more insulation depending on if you need that area to have tighter temperature control or be more protected against humidity.
