Fiberglass Insulation

America’s most popular insulation choice!

Fiberglass insulation continues to prove effective in warming homes.

We have been using fiberglass in our homes and buildings for many years now and the one thing about this product is its consistent in keeping your home warm and it’s also very easy to install. There are other great insulation products on the market but this one is still the number 1 choice due to the price point and it does the job.

What is fiberglass insulation?

If you have ventured up to your attic at any point you have seen what looks like pink fluffy material lining the attic between your joists. This is fiberglass insulation which is used to insulate your home and keep the cold out. The aim of installing this between your homes wall, and under your home is to cut energy costs so you don’t have to have the heating running at full blast in the winter 24 hours a day and the air conditioning unit on full blast in the summer. It is there to trap the warm air and also the cool air making your home sit at a comfortable temperature and retaining that heat or cold air for longer periods of time.

Is fiberglass dangerous?

Fiberglass came about to replace the likes of asbestos which as we all know is dangerous if it’s breathed in. Fiberglass at one point was linked to possible cancer however but after a study conducted by the International Agency on Cancer Research fiberglass was removed from its, “possible that it’s harmful to humans” list back in 2001. If anyone is working with fiberglass then proper safety material is needed as it can be an irritant, but it’s still used in 90% of homes in America and it will continue to be installed for a very long time. So you can have satisfaction in knowing the (IARC) removed it from its possibly carcinogenic to humans list and its considered safe.

How is fiberglass installed?

There are different thickness levels to fiberglass and depending on where you live in the county your R-value will be assessed. Colder places require a thicker insulation and this can be laid in batt form which is the big rolls you sometimes see or blown in, (loose fill). Both are effective in keeping cold out and they achieve what is required.

Should you choose Cellulose Insulation or Fiberglass Insulation both are great products and our installers will be able to carry the work out with no problems at all.

    UAC Energy Efficiency installed my Solar Panel system and it’s been savings ever since. I was paying a fortune in air conditioning in the summer and the cost of heating my pool was also a drain. Since installing solar technology I have a seen a massive difference in savings and this will soon pay for itself. If you are shopping for a solar installation company I more than recommend giving UAC Energy Efficiency a call.

    Having bought a new home I was having some remodeling work done. When the contractor pulled back the drywall I noticed the installation in the walls was like old news paper. My house is very old and my contractor told me if this room is like this probably all of them are the same way, that’s why it feels so cold. I called UAC Energy Efficiency and they came and gave me a full free assessment to see what I needed to do to make the place warmer. After coming up with a solution of adding blown in insulation and working with my contractor they did a fantastic job of sealing my whole house with new insulation.

    I live in a very hot and humid place so my home can feel like a sauna in the summer and I always have to have the A/C running. After my bedroom still felt very hot with the A/C on I decided to call UAC Energy Efficiency to see if they could lend a solution. They looked in my attic and saw I had the wrong type of insulation, the R-Value was off and it was too thick. They replaced that and installed a radiant barrier and an attic fan. My room feels so much cooler now and I can even drop the A/C setting down to save money. Worth the investment to sleep better.
