Fiberglass Insulation Services in Little Rock, Jonesboro and Springdale
Fiberglass insulation is the most common and widely used type of insulation for homes and businesses. It is the type that first comes to mind when someone thinks about insulation, and it is made from melted glass, which is spun to create thermal-resistant fibers. From there, it can be cut into sizes that fit into framing (“batts”) or used as loose-fill fiberglass insulation (“blowing wool”) that is either blown into open spaces or dense packed into closed spaces. Loose-fill fiberglass insulation can also be dense packed into walls behind the mesh to create a thermal blanket, a technique called BIBS.
Fiberglass batt insulation is primarily made of recycled materials. It is commonly used to insulate floors, walls, ceilings, and attics, and has a variety of benefits:
- excellent acoustics
- does not absorb moisture
- won’t settle over time
- certified for superior indoor air quality (IAQ) performance
Fiberglass wall insulation needs to be properly installed to maximize its performance. To ensure optimal performance and to maximize R-value, it is best to hire an insulation expert. G&S Insulating are experts at installing fiberglass insulation products in new homes and existing homes. Our team prides itself on quality work. We are happy to provide advice on all of your insulation options.
Fiberglass Batt Insulation
Fiberglass batt insulation helps create a comfortable living and working space all year long, and it is installed in open spaces such as wall cavities and ceiling joists. When properly installed, fiberglass batt boasts benefits of its own:
- It is more cost effective than other types of insulation
- It improves the energy efficiency of your home
- It helps lower your energy bills
- It helps with sound transfer and noise control
Offering both kraft-faced and unfaced fiberglass batt insulation, G&S has the right insulation products for your project.
Blown-in Fiberglass Insulation
One of the best ways for homeowners to lower their energy bills is to start at the top. Attics often contain insufficient insulation levels and are primary areas of home air leaks. To keep interior conditioned air from escaping, contact G&S Insulating to add blown-in fiberglass insulation to the attic of your existing home or to properly insulate your new home. This simple insulation installation can cut your heating and cooling costs in half!
Blown-in fiberglass insulation can be installed in nearly any space and is commonly blown into open spaces such as attics, dense packed into closed spaces, or blown behind netting to create a complete thermal blanket (net and blow). It can also be installed in:
- Interior walls for sound control
- Between floors for sound control
- Upslope areas in attics
- Attic knee walls
Blown-in Blanket System (BIBS)
A blown-in blanket system is a high performing fiberglass insulating system for use in open cavities. The blown-in fiberglass insulation provides a seamless, thermally efficient blanket of material that completely fills voids in open cavities.
You may wonder why to consider blown in insulation vs batts of fiberglass insulation. Batts of fiberglass-based insulation have long been the standby for insulation products. While fiberglass rolls or batts are an effective form of insulation, they have the potential to leave gaps between the insulation and studs.
With the blown-in blanket system, loose-fill fiberglass insulation is densely packed behind a barrier into an open cavity. This installation method fills the cavity, eliminates any air gaps, and helps increase your energy savings potential. This system can be taken one step further by air sealing the wall cavity before installing insulation.
In addition to increased energy savings, the BIBS system can reduce noise transfer. By removing air gaps between the insulation and framing, sound bleed is decreased. This helps reduce outside noise that travels through your walls.
