Is your home sufficiently insulated? While many homeowners understand (at least partially) the benefits insulation offers, they aren’t quite sure what it looks like or where it is in their home. In addition to the attic, you most likely have insulation in your home’s walls and basement or crawl space. But what do the different types of insulation look like?
Here are some images of insulation that can be installed in both new and existing homes:
What Does Fiberglass Insulation Look Like?
Made of tiny glass fibers, fiberglass insulation can be installed in many areas of a home. Owens Corning fiberglass is pink, but this type of insulation comes in various other colors, from yellow to white to brown. It’s available in and blown-in (top image) and batt (bottom image) form.
What Does Cellulose Insulation Look Like?
Cellulose insulation is extremely environmentally friendly, made of up to 85 percent recycled materials. It is generally gray or brown in color.
What Does Rockwool Insulation Look Like?
Rockwool insulation looks like some types of fiberglass. This type of insulation is made of rocks and minerals spun into small, high temperature-resistant fibers.
