Feeling comfortable indoors starts with properly installed insulation. It’s one thing to have insulation, but it’s another thing for it to actually insulate.

For the best performance, Charleston residents and building owners trust IBP Charleston to install fiberglass insulation to ensure the best possible indoor air quality and comfort all year.

How Does Fiberglass Batt Insulation Work?

Fiberglass insulation slows the spread of heat, cold, and sound by trapping air pockets. Limiting the amount of air coming in (and leaking out of) a home keeps it warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Fiberglass insulation comes in rolls or batts. Batts are flat sheets pre-cut to common building sizes. Rolls are also flat, but they create a continuous sheet of insulation, so they’re better for large spaces.

To understand how much air fiberglass insulation captures, you can look at the R-value. All insulation is rated with an R-value, which is the material’s capacity to resist heat flow.

The greater the R-value, the greater the insulating power. Fiberglass batts typically have an R-value of 3.1–3.4 per inch of thickness, so a 6-inch batt would have at least an 18.3 R-value. However, the full R-value is reached only when insulation is installed correctly.

Where Can Fiberglass Batt Insulation Be Used?

Fiberglass batts are commonly installed in attics, crawl spaces, floors, ceilings and unfinished walls. Because of its pre-sized dimensions, it’s most convenient for fitting between studs, joists or beams.

Fiberglass insulation is cost-effective, making it great for commercial and residential buildings, whether new construction or applicable retrofit (such as areas where studs are exposed, like an attic or remodeling projects with new walls or where new drywall will be installed).

Signs You Would Benefit from Fiberglass Batt Insulation

For an existing building, if you can feel drafts during the cold months (in areas other than around doors or windows), or the indoor temperature won’t get comfortable in the cold or warm seasons no matter how much you fuss with the thermostat (which is hard on your HVAC!), you may need more insulation.

For new construction, fiberglass insulation is a cost-effective solution that yields excellent performance when installed correctly.

Additional benefits of fiberglass batt insulation include:

  • Efficient installation
  • Eco-friendly material
  • Affordable
  • Reduced indoor humidity
