Fiberglass Insulation

FIBERGLASS INSULATION IN MURFREESBORO, TN

When most people think of insulation, the first thing that pops into their head is the cotton-candy-like fiberglass insulation. The most common and widely used type of insulation on the market, fiberglass insulation is made from melted sand, which is spun to give it that wispy appearance. Then, it is either cut into specific batt insulation sizes to fit into framing or used as a loose filler to be blown into larger spaces. Fiberglass batt insulation is primarily made of recycled materials, and it is 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 the best insulation companies in the greater Murfreesboro area, B&M Insulation provides quality services and customer care.

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. Attic installation made of blown-in fiberglass adds the thermal resistance needed to help keep the conditioned air inside your home from escaping. 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
  • 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.
