One of the oldest types of insulation products, fiberglass has been used for decades to help make homes and buildings more energy-efficient. Although it’s usually pink (it’s the insulation that is fluffy and resembles cotton candy), it can come in other colors.
Fiberglass insulation is installed as loose-fill (blown-in) or as a blanket system of rolls and batts. Loose-fill fiberglass insulation is ideal for filling the tiny gaps, crevices and cracks behind your walls. Rolls and batts fiberglass fits snugly between wall and floor joists and is often installed in attics, basements and crawl spaces. Made of up to 40 percent recycled glass content, fiberglass is also one of the most environmentally friendly types of insulation.
