A: Fiberglass insulation is a type of residential or commercial insulation that’s made out of very thin strands of glass. It is a man-made material and has a high surface area-to-weight ratio that makes it an ideal insulator for residential and commercial buildings. Nowadays, fiberglass insulation does not irritate the skin like it used to, and the manufacturing it is more environmentally friendly than it used to be. Many manufacturers nowadays are using recycled glass.

Q: What does R-value mean, and why is it so important?

A: R-value stands for “resistance value” and it measures an insulating material’s resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulation power that material has.
