Fiberglass insulation is an industry standard for home and commercial application. Choosing EcoLogical to install fiberglass insulation is a cost effective way to help conserve energy in commercial structures, new home construction, when remodeling an existing home and when adding insulation to an existing home. Not only does fiberglass insulation help keep temperatures comfortable, it also dampens sound to reduce noise transfer between spaces. It is easily transported due to its compression packaging. Fiberglass insulation is manufactured in batts, loose fill and in a variety of R-values so it can be used in a multitude of ways.
Notice the difference between poorly installed fiberglass batt insulation (left) and properly installed fiberglass batt insulation (right). When fiberglass batt insulation is compressed and not properly fit into the cavity, the insulation doesn’t perform properly and R-value is reduced.

Fiberglass insulation is made from natural and recycled glass products and comes in two forms:
Fiberglass Batt Insulation is the most common and widely available type of insulation and the type that comes to mind for most people when thinking of insulation. Batts are available in widths suited to standard spacing of wall studs, and attic or floor joists. Batt insulation:
- has excellent acoustics
- is noncorrosive
- does not absorb moisture
- won’t settle over time
- creates a more comfortable living and working space all year long
- is more affordable than other forms of insulation
- improves the energy efficiency of your home
- lowers your energy bills
- provides effective noise control
Blown-in Fiberglass Insulation can be blown into nearly any space. It provides complete coverage in open attic areas and increases the R-value in the attic. Loose fill fiberglass insulation is used to blow into open spaces and can be dense packed into closed cavities including:
- garage ceilings under heated areas (where there is a room above a garage)
- interior walls for sound control
- between floors for sound control
- upslope areas in attics
”EcoLogical Insulation installs a variety of fiberglass brands including Knauf and Johns Manville as well as others.
