Fiberglass

When most people think of insulation, the first thing that pops into their head is the cotton candy-like fiberglass insulation. As the most common and widely used type of insulation, fiberglass insulation is made from melted sand, which is spun to create that telltale cotton candy appearance. Then, it is either cut into sizes to fit into framing or used as loose fill to be blown into larger spaces. Fiberglass batt insulation is primarily made of recycled materials, and used to insulate floors, walls, ceilings and attics.

Since fiberglass batt insulation needs to be properly installed to maximize performance, it is always best to call on the experts at B&M Insulation. As one of Middle Tennessee’s best insulation companies, B&M Insulation provides quality services and customer care. We take pride in the quality of our work, and we are always happy to provide sound advice on all fiberglass insulation options.

Benefits of Fiberglass Batt Insulation

When properly installed, fiberglass batt offers a variety of great benefits. Fiberglass batt insulation:

  • Helps create a year-round comfortable living space
  • Is more affordable than other forms of insulation
  • Helps improves the energy efficiency of your home
  • Helps reduce heating and cooling bills
  • Provides effective noise control

Fiberglass Batt Insulation

Whether you are working on a small residential project, a large office or commercial buildings, fiberglass batt insulation is a great solution. It is available in widths suited to standard spacing of wall studs and attic or floor joists. Batt insulation:

  • Has excellent acoustics
  • Is noncorrosive
  • Does not absorb moisture
  • Unfaced batts are noncombustible
  • Won’t settle over time
  • Is lightweight
  • Is certified for superior indoor air quality (IAQ) performance

Blown-In Fiberglass Insulation

One of the best ways to lower energy bills is to start at the top. Attics are susceptible to air leaks and may have inadequate insulation levels. To help keep your home’s interior conditioned air from escaping, add blown-in fiberglass insulation and air seal your attic. This one simple step can significantly reduce your heating and cooling costs! Blown-in fiberglass insulation can be installed in nearly any space or densely packed into closed cavities including:

  • Garage ceilings under heated areas (where a room is above a garage)
  • Interior walls for sound control
  • Exterior walls as part of a BIB installation or dense packed into existing exterior walls
  • Between floors for sound control
  • Upslope areas in attics

If you want to keep your home comfortable all year long and see a significant drop in your energy bills, schedule a free estimate with the B&M Insulation team. Our insulation specialists will take the time to inspect your home and pinpoint any insulation deficiency and make recommendations, so you can make an informed decision.
