FIBERGLASS INSULATION IS EFFICIENT AND INEXPENSIVE
Fiberglass insulation is the most common type of insulation in western Massachusetts homes and one of the most inexpensive options. Fiberglass insulation comes in batts and blankets. Batts are pre-cut, whereas blankets are available in larger rolls.
Some of the benefits of fiberglass insulation include:
Recycled - Fiberglass insulation is spun from sand and recycled glass.
Water & Mold resistant - Fiberglass will not hold water.
Versatile - Fiberglass can be "dense-packed" into cavities, blown open into flat areas or installed using batts or rolls.
Soundproofing - Fiberglass can be used to assist with sound attenuation.
