What it is.

Fiberglass insulation is a type of 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 its manufacturing process is more environmentally friendly than it used to be. And, many manufacturers are using recycled glass.

Its benefits.

Fiberglass insulation is a cost-effective way to insulate your home. Not only could you see some savings on your heating and cooling bills, but it can also help reduce noise pollution. It is also non-combustible and non-absorbent.

Fiberglass insulation is also easy to install. 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 tthose at Lewis Insulation, to get it installed.

The type of fiberglass insulation we install 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.

Its cost.

Fiberglass insulation is a budget-friendly option for many homeowners. You still get many of the same perks as other types of insulation, but fiberglass is one of the least expensive options on the market today.

Its efficiency.

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.
