If you experience high cooling bills during the summer or inconsistent indoor temperatures throughout the year, chances are that your home needs additional insulation. At Green Collar Operations, we install high-efficiency and affordable fiberglass insulation to make your home more comfortable and efficient.
The Importance of Home Insulation
About 90% of homes in the United States are under-insulated, and Austin area homes are no exception. Insufficient insulation not only makes your home uncomfortable but also undermines your home’s energy efficiency, raising your heating and cooling bills. Insulating is one of the most effective ways to slow heat transfer in your home, keeping the heat out during the summer and climate-controlled heat in during the winter. When installed correctly, fiberglass insulation will enhance home comfort, increase energy efficiency, and even improve your indoor air quality.
Why Insulate with Fiberglass?
Fiberglass insulation, also known as glass wool, is one of the most commonly used types of insulation and is made up of tiny fibers of glass and sand. It comes in batt and blanket form but can also be blown into walls and attics. It is known to offer a variety of benefits, including:
Fiberglass insulation is highly effective yet more affordable than other types of insulation.
Fiberglass can be installed in batts or rolls, blown into flat areas, or dense-packed into cavities.
When installed correctly, fiberglass insulation slows heat transfer in your home, making it more energy efficient.
Fire-retardant resins in fiberglass insulation allow it to stand up against fire.
Fiberglass insulation absorbs sound waves, reducing sound transmission through walls and ceilings, helping turn your home into a quiet sanctuary.
Fiberglass is spun from silica sand, an abundant and renewable resource, and up to 80% recycled glass, which reduces its environmental impact.
