Fiberglass insulation is a great choice for many spaces and almost any property.
When it comes to keeping your home warm and comfortable, there are a myriad of ways to get the job done! With everything from forced air to fireplaces, you have many options for getting the heat circulating throughout your home. However, when it comes to keeping that heat inside your home, you need good insulation, such as fiberglass insulation from our experts here at 31-W Insulation.
Fiberglass insulation is an interesting material because it is made quite literally from fibrous strands of glass. Glass is naturally a terrible conductor of heat, so choosing it for an insulation source is a no-brainer. Once it was able to be manufactured into a flexible, stable insulation material, fiberglass insulation became an insulator of choice in all types of buildings, including homes, commercial properties, and businesses alike.
Does Fiberglass Insulation Carry a Cancer Warning Label?
At 31-W Insulation, we want you to consider us to install your fiberglass insulation because we want to save you time and give you professional results that you might not be able to achieve on your own. While other insulation companies may utilize scare tactics, such as “don’t do it yourself or you’ll get cancer!” we prefer an honest approach, and given our successful 40+ years of business, we’re confident that is the better way to go.
The first thing to know about fiberglass insulation is that it does NOT carry a cancer warning label. It is true that at one time it was listed by NTP, IARC, and Proposition 65 in California as a potential carcinogen, but that ended when an international expert review and extensive testing and research by the IARC found no evidence of increased risks. In 2011, both the NTP and California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment made modifications in their documents so that a cancer warning label was no longer required.
Although fiberglass insulation does not present a cancer hazard, we still put safety protocols into place when we install or remove fiberglass insulation. This is for the protection of our crew and your family. We are happy to discuss the advantages of having us handle your insulation project instead of doing it yourself, so feel free to contact us to schedule a consultation. You can rest assured that we will always provide you with an honest assessment regarding your home insulation needs.
