How Fiberglass Insulation Helps Your Home
Fight Off Conductive Heat Transfer with Fiberglass
Of all the insulation types available, fiberglass insulation is one of the most common types seen in homes in Harrisburg and throughout the majority of the nation. The reason for its high usage is because of its high availability and it protects against the well-known threat of conductive heat transfer. These qualities make it a popular option for new home builds and remodeling for energy efficiency. At Your Remodeling Guys, we’ve made sure to carry this widely used form of insulation for the convenience of our clients and because optimizing a home’s energy efficiency often calls for it.
Energy-Saving Qualities of Fiberglass
Fiberglass insulation is comprised of melted silica and other materials to form a molten glass base that is then extruded through a system of rollers to form thin glass fibers. The fibers are then chopped into multiple pieces and combined with a plastic fill, which results in fiberglass insulation. The millions of tiny fibers in the insulation trap conductive heat to dramatically slow the transference. Though this does not completely stop the transference process, it does still help to dramatically increase the energy efficiency of any home. The effectiveness and affordability has made fiberglass one of the standard insulation types used in the majority of homes in Harrisburg and surrounding areas.
Our fiberglass insulation is available in two forms, batts and blow-in. Each of these forms are very effective but the difference is that blown-in is typically used in unfinished attic spaces, nonconforming areas, hard-to-reach areas. Our rolls and pre-cut batts are typically applied to finished attics, walls, and crawl spaces. Our insulation specialists can help you determine which form of fiberglass is needed in your Harrisburg home upon completion of our 12-point inspection.
Save Energy with Fiberglass & Insulations
Despite fiberglass insulation greatly aiding in your pursuit for maximum energy efficiency in your Harrisburg home, it’s still incapable of optimizing energy efficiency on its own. It’s for this reason that we carry multiple types of insulations at Your Remodeling Guys. Our fiberglass insulation is a great way to get started, but to complete the job it’s best to explore our air-sealing foam and radiant barrier options. Combining all three of these insulations is the best way to maximize the energy-saving potential of your home. We recommend having our 12-point inspection completed by our accredited inspectors to determine what your insulation needs are. Contact us to set up your inspection today so you can get closer to having the energy efficient home you deserve.
