Turn to us if you are looking for information about the advantages of batt insulation for homes and businesses.
Batt insulation is the form of insulation that most people are familiar with. It comes in rolls and is cost-effective in upfront costs compared to other types of insulation. It is critical for this type of insulation to be installed properly and care taken to seal any gaps where air could infiltrate. At 31-W Insulation, we have been serving the Southeast with insulation and other home remodeling services since 1972. You can be confident that we can accurately calculate the thickness of batt insulation needed to get to the R-value you want and install it for optimal heat transfer prevention.
We take the time during your complimentary consultation to discuss recommended R-values and insulation types for your climate, heating and cooling cost reduction goals, budget, and other objectives. We’ll assess what insulation your home has now, so you’ll have a firm understanding about what improvements can be made and the related benefits.
Advantages of Batt Insulation
While there is much attention on other types of home insulation, there are still many advantages involved with batt insulation that can make it the ideal solution for your needs. Here at 31-W Insulation, we’ve been around for the entire transformation of the insulation industry, since we first got started in 1972 when batt insulation was pretty much the only way to go. We have also seen how even batt insulation has changed and improved, making it a viable option for many homeowners. Here are some of the advantages of batt insulation to consider.
- Recycled Content– It wasn’t always the case, but today’s batt insulation has a greater amount of recycled materials in its construction than you might think. Some insulation products contain as much as 80% pre- and post-consumer glass containers recycled for use in insulation manufacturing.
- Retains R-Value– Batt insulation is an inert product that doesn’t settle, so it retains its R-Value for a long period of time, provided it isn’t disturbed or damaged and has been installed properly without being compressed in any way.
- R-Value Assured– Batt insulation comes in pre-made R-Values, so you can be certain you are achieving the desired level of thermal resistance you require. Other types of insulation require calculations, and the results can vary in terms of R-Value.
- Cost Effective– Fiberglass batt insulation has been in existence since the late 1930s and has continued to be an excellent, cost-effective way to enjoy a more comfortable home while being moisture resistant, fire resistant, and providing acoustic control.
