Benefits of Fiberglass Insulation Illinois
There are many benefits to fiberglass insulation Illinois
Learn more about the benefits of fiberglass insulation Illinois below:
Fiberglass Insulation, made in R-values from 11 to 38. Thermal Batts are available plane or faced with either a kraft or foil vapor retarder. The product is manufactured in thicknesses from 3½” to 12″
Thermal Batt Insulation can be used in a wide range of exterior wall and roof/ceiling applications. The product can be installed in wood or metal framing cavities, or can be installed between furring strips.
Features and Benefits:
Excellent Thermal Control with the range of R-values and thicknesses available, Thermal Batts can meet most thermal specifications with ease. The R30C and R38C provide optimum thermal performance in the limited space of cathedral ceilings.
Effective Acoustical Control:
Thermal Batt Insulation enhances noise control by improving the Sound Transmission Class (STC) of walls and floor/ceiling assemblies.
Cellulose insulation helps buildings stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer by effectively controlling all 3 methods of heat transfer: convective, conductive, and radiant. Buildings are more comfortable and less expensive to operate and maintain. Research at universities and national laboratories has proven that cellulose can provide up to 50% better performance than fiberglass.
Cellulose provides superior sound attenuation, in large part, because it is blown or sprayed in. This provides a custom fit that eliminates the acoustical shortcuts that are created by batt insulations, gaps and voids in odd shaped cavities and around obstacles such as plumbing, air ducts, and wiring.
Cellulose is an excellent choice for reducing sound transmission through walls, ceilings, and floors.
