Are there any safety considerations or precautions when installing or handling fiberglass insulation?
Yes. Though it may look soft and fluffy, fiberglass insulation actually contains tiny glass particles. Personal protective equipment (PPE) should be worn when handling fiberglass insulation and handling/cutting should be done in an open-air or well ventilated area to minimize exposure.
What is fiberglass insulation and how does it work to improve the energy efficiency of a building?
Fiberglass insulation (also known as glass wool insulation) is a common insulative material made of molten glass turned into fibers that effectively trap thermal energy and regulate the temperature inside buildings.
What are the advantages of using fiberglass insulation compared to other insulation materials?
Fiberglass insulation is affordable, easy to install, energy efficient, eco-friendly, and resistant to mold and mildew.
How does fiberglass insulation contribute to soundproofing and reducing noise transmission?
A good option for reducing noise transmission, fiberglass insulation absorbs sound waves and is often used between rooms and in floors and ceilings in buildings where noise levels are of concern.
