Unless your home was built in the 1970s or earlier, it most likely has a sufficient amount of insulation. But does it have the right kind of insulation? This is a whole other question and it largely depends on the area of the home the insulation is installed.
Do you have fiberglass batt insulation in your home? Are you wondering if you should replace it? Keep reading to learn more!
Should You Replace Fiberglass Batt Insulation?
Available in pre-cut panels, batt insulation is one of the most commonly installed types of insulation. While it is effective for certain areas of the home, our team recommends blown-in insulation for attics. Why? It’s better at filling spaces completely and leaving fewer gaps. In addition to fiberglass, cellulose is available in blown-in form (also called loose-fill). It’s also possible to add blown-in insulation on top of batts.
The right insulation can:
- Reduce your utility bills and maximize the energy efficiency of your home
- Make your home more comfortable year round
- Reduce noises from outside and also from inside your home between different rooms and levels
- Improve the performance of your air conditioner and furnace
- Contribute to a healthier environment
