What Is Fiberglass Insulation?
Fiberglass insulation is made from tiny fibers of glass that have been spun and deposited in crisscrossing layers, forming a thick blanket. A binder is added to hold the fibers in place, and the product is cured in an oven. The blanket is then cut into standard widths to fit between 16- or 24-inch on-center framing and a range of thicknesses to fit two-by-four, two-by-six, two-by-eight and other standard framing members, among other sizes. Fiberglass is also available as a blown-in or loose-fill product, which skips the binder.
In the voids between layers and strands, fiberglass insulation traps small pockets of air, which provide its resistance to the flow of heat, represented by its R-value. Higher values indicate better resistance to heat flow or better insulating ability. Fiberglass batts are rated anywhere from R-2.8 to R-4.3 per inch of thickness, while loose-fill or blown-in fiberglass can range from R-2.2 to R-3.8 per inch.
Fiberglass batts are ideal for insulating the walls, ceilings and floors in your New Jersey home, as they fit neatly between the studs, rafters and joists, held in by a friction fit or by stapling through the kraft facing. The batts can be cut to length and fit around obstacles like outlet boxes, cripplers or firestops. Fiberglass batts work well in exterior walls, floors, crawl spaces, basements, attics and more.
Loose-fill or blown-in fiberglass is perfect for insulating attic floors, where it can be filled above the depth of the joists for added R-value. It can also be used in finished walls, ceilings and floors, where it is blown in through a small hole cut to reach the cavity between framing members. This creates a finished wall with high thermal performance, with minimal repairs after the insulation is installed.
