Insulation Basics: Materials & Benefits

You have many options when it comes to your insulation options, from spray foam to batt fiberglass and everything in between. The American Insulation team wants to make sure homeowners in Alabama (and everywhere else!) are well-informed about their insulation so they can make the best choices for overall home energy efficiency and comfort.

Insulation Materials

There are several different types of insulation. Two of the most commonly installed materials are:

Fiberglass insulation: Fiberglass has been used to insulate structures for decades It is made of tiny glass fibers and is available in batt and blown-in forms. Fiberglass insulation can be installed in many different areas, from the attic to the walls.

Spray foam insulation: Spray foam, typically made of polyurethane, is applied wet and expands into thick foam that fits in wall cavities, crevices and gaps—therefore, it can be installed in hard-to-reach areas and around piping and wiring.

Benefits of Insulation

Insulation offers a number of benefits, whether part of a new construction project or a retrofit job. Installing insulation helps:

  • Increase the energy efficiency of homes and buildings, no matter the season
  • Improve interior comfort levels
  • Provide soundproofing (from outside and between different rooms and levels)
  • Protect against air and water infiltration
  • Improve the performance of your HVAC systems
  • Contribute to a healthier environment
