Recycled but Wasteful to Make

One of the unique features of fiberglass is that it's made from recycled glass, which makes this type of insulation both environmentally friendly and better for our planet. Producing fiberglass can also be bad for the environment because it releases a lot of CO2 into the atmosphere.

To turn molten glass into fiber, you need to use a furnace with high temperatures of up to 2500 degrees Fahrenheit. Fiberglass comes in different varieties including blankets, batts, and blown-in insulation.

Blankets, Batts, and Blown-in Insulation

Like fiberglass, the insides of pillows can be compared to flax. Blown-in or batts are the two most popular types of insulation for homes that are made from flax. It’s not just for home insulation though, it can also be found in fishing rods, boats, and many other products.

Batts - Batts come in different widths & thicknesses. Pallet-covered batts are perfect if you're not looking for loading restrictions, but if not, unfaced batts are just as durable. Having your batts faced can allow you to cover up the insulation with plastic, foil, or Kraft paper.

The advantage of facing is that it's easy to install and also creates an air and water barrier, or if set with foil, a radiant heat barrier.

The Batt width depends on the spacing between the studs. Ranging from 16" to 24" wide.

Blankets are wider and thinner than batts. They also have plastic facing on either one side or both sides.

Blown-In Insulation is especially popular for unfinished attic spaces because it's easy to install and cuts down on excess noise.
