Benefits of Blanket Insulation
Consisting of batts or rolls, blanket insulation is one of the most commonly used types of insulation. This type of insulation is made up of small fibers—mostly fiberglass—and typically installed in spaces without many obstructions (pipes, wiring, etc.), such as unfinished walls (including foundation walls), floors and ceilings. It is fitted between joists, studs and beams.
Blanket insulation helps:
- Decrease energy bills
- Keep homes more comfortable, all year long
- Reduce noises from outside and between different rooms and floors inside
- Improve the efficiency of HVAC systems
Blanket insulation can also be used in commercial and office buildings, as well as homes. In warmer climates—such as here in Southern California—it’s often the most cost-effective attic insulation solution to combine a thermal material (like fiberglass batt insulation) with a radiant barrier in the ceiling, to help your roof reflect, rather than absorb, heat from the sun.
