Why Fiberglass is Still Number One

When most think of insulation, it’s fiberglass insulation that comes to mind. And, this isn’t without good reason. While there are a variety of new, equally amazing insulation products on the market, fiberglass has remained at the top of the list. In fact, fiberglass is the dominant insulation material being almost 71% of all the insulation used by 1,600 builders as surveyed by Home Innovation Research Labs. And, according to the same article, fiberglass has remained fairly steady at that level for the past couple of years.

Insulation Installation

Since this material makes up more than two thirds of the insulation market for new, single family homes, this is a great time to discuss the many benefits of fiberglass. Here at Lewis Insulation, we are the experts in fiberglass insulation for Plymouth and the surrounding areas and know first-hand all of the benefits of this and every one of our insulation materials. We believe fiberglass insulation will be around as a top insulation material for years to come. Here are some points to consider:

First of all, like many other insulation materials, fiberglass insulation can help increase the energy efficiency of your home. It helps to slow the spread of heat and cold by trapping pockets of air. This helps keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Plus, it helps the amount of outside noise that comes into your home.

Fiberglass is also made out of sand and recycled glass, so that means it does not catch fire that easily. If it is under direct flame, it will melt, not burn. Fiberglass insulation is not a fire hazard.

And, the type of fiberglass insulation we install at Lewis Insulation is mold and mildew resistant. So you will not have to worry that your new fiberglass insulation is retaining moisture and possibly causing more harm than good to you and your family.

Ready to get started? You will not have to wait long for fiberglass insulation to be installed. While the installation process can be easy, it is still best to call in the professionals, like the ones at Lewis Insulation, to get it installed. That’s because if someone without a lot of experience installs your fiberglass insulation, it can be installed improperly and you could lose a lot of the benefits of this insulation.
