How Is Blown-In Fiberglass Manufactured?
Blown-in fiberglass consists of tiny glass particles heated to a liquid and then spun into tight, thin fibers. The most typical installation is in an attic floor, as well as drilling a hole in your existing wall through the stud, similar to injection foam or blown-in cellulose insulation.
Once installed, the loose fibers are easily spread across an open cavity, filling any loose spaces behind your exterior wall. However, thanks to its tight composition, fiberglass won’t settle over time or diminish its R-value.
Loose fiberglass typically comprises an R-value of 2.5 per inch and achieves an R-value of 19 over a ~100-square-foot region. In turn, blown-in fiberglass will significantly reduce your heating bills and provide a more comfortable home. As a bonus, blown-in fiberglass is also naturally sound-resistant and non-combustible.
The Longest Lasting Blown-In Insulating Product
By most accounts, blown-in fiberglass lasts upwards of 80 to 100 years. If you’re looking for a long-lasting and economical solution to your heating bills, contact the experts at EnergySmart about blown-in fiberglass insulation.
