Fiberglass is a composite material made of a plastic matrix reinforced by tiny glass fibers. It is lightweight yet strong, and since glass isn’t a good conductor of heat, it’s a very effective insulation material. Fiberglass insulation stops conduction heat transfer—which is the transfer of heat through solid objects (such as the walls of your home).
Fiberglass traps heat when it’s moving to a colder area—from outside to inside your home in the summer and from inside the house to outside in the winter. It is available as loose-fill or batts and can be installed anywhere in your home, used for:
Fiberglass insulation can not only help you save on your energy bills, but it can also help make your home more comfortable all year long and improve the energy efficiency of your furnace and air conditioner.
