Fiberglass is an insulation material that consists of fine glass fiber and is largely used in insulation projects. Its main job is to slow down the spread of heat and cold air in homes. Fiberglass insulation is a good option for property owners who want to save on the costs of the insulation project or those who want to perform the insulation as a do-it-yourself project.
As an insulator, fiberglass slows down the spread of heat and cold air by trapping pockets of air and keeps homes warm in the winter and, alternatively, keeps homes cooler in the summer. Air leakage in a home can be contained by limiting the amount of air coming into it to make it comfortable. While fiberglass limits the air movement in a house, it is important to note that it does not stop the flow of air completely.
One of the benefits of installing fiberglass in your home is that is inexpensive to install. This works if you have a tight budget and are looking for an easy and affordable solution to fix air leakage in your house. Another is that it is easy to install fiberglass and you can therefore install it as a do-it-yourself project if need be.
Ultimately, it is you who has the final say in the type of insulation you want for your house, but it is important to choose one that suits you, especially if you are considering the financial part of such a project.
