Batt vs. Blown-In Fiberglass Insulation
Made of tiny glass fibers and thermally efficient, fiberglass has been used to insulate structures for decades and is available in batt and blown-in (loose-fill) form. Although it’s often installed in attics, it can be used to insulate nearly any area of a home or building, including walls and crawl spaces.
Batt insulation, also known as blanket insulation, is the most common and widely available type of insulation. They can be installed in 2×4 and 2×6 walls and are designed for easy installation, ideal for spaces without obstructions.
Batts with a special flame-resistant facing are available in various widths for places where the insulation will be left exposed. Facings aren’t always necessary; for example, unfaced batt insulation should be used when adding new material over existing layers.
Loose-fill or blown-in fiberglass works well for many areas of a home. It’s made of small particles of fiber or other materials formed together to conform to any space without disturbing finishes or structures. Because of this, blown insulation can fit in more awkwardly shaped or hard-to-reach areas than batts.
Blown-in fiberglass is made using recycled waste materials and can contain up to 30% recycled glass.
