Fiberglass Insulation Installers

It seems like Houston gets hotter and hotter every year. Many people prefer to stay indoors, where air conditioning keeps you comfortable. And if you’re running your air conditioning all the time, you will see a spike in your energy bill. The same happens when you run your heater in the winter as well. But what if your energy bill is rising higher than normal? You may need to install new fiberglass insulation.

What is Fiberglass Insulation?

When you think of home insulation, fiberglass is probably the first thing that comes to your mind. Fiberglass insulation is the pink, “fluffy” material you see lining the walls of homes and businesses. Made up mainly of glass and sand, it is the main insulation material used in Houston homes.

Fiberglass insulation is blown in by a truck-mounted hose, which is ideal for strange home shapes or forming around fixtures. Additionally, it is available in batt sheets and rolls, which is a more accessible option for self-installation. However, fiberglass can irritate your skin or respiratory system. We recommend that fiberglass insulation only be installed by professionals.

Benefits of Fiberglass Insulation

There are many different insulation materials. Perhaps due to how common it is, fiberglass insulation can have a bad reputation. However, we know fiberglass is one of the most dependable insulation materials. Some of its benefits include:

Energy Efficiency

By maintaining the temperature of your home, fiberglass insulation can have a big effect on your utility bills. Some homeowners can see their utility bills fall by as much as 17% from using fiberglass insulation.

Fire Resistance

Because fiberglass is made of recycled glass and sand, it is heat resistant. Throughout its life, the material stays noncombustible. In fact, building codes do not require fiberglass to have extra flame-retardant chemicals applied.

Moisture Resistance

Home insulation needs to be moisture resistant to protect against Houston’s bad weather. Fiberglass insulation doesn’t hold water. In the event of water exposure, technicians must fully dry the insulation. Once dried, it returns to its prior effectiveness.

Noise Reduction

Fiberglass is a sound-absorbent material that can reduce noise when used in attics, HVAC systems, residential walls, and more. It can even increase a unit’s Sound Transmission Class (STC) value by many points. This means that systems like your HVAC are less noisy outside of your home.

Recycled Materials

Glass is the main component in fiberglass. Depending on where it comes from, the glass used can be made up of up to 80% recycled materials. Thus, fiberglass can get rid of billions of pounds of waste from landfills. Sand is the other main thing in fiberglass. Sand is a renewable resource, meaning fiberglass is an environmentally friendly building material.

Cost Effectiveness

Renewable and recyclable materials aren’t just good for the environment, but they’re more cost-effective as well. And because it is made of these materials, fiberglass insulation is the most value-oriented option for homeowners.
