Blown-In and Batt Fiberglass Insulation in Coastal Georgia
The scope of your residential or commercial project will determine which form of fiberglass insulation is best for your space and budget. Understanding the fiberglass insulation options available to you is important when making an informed decision about which insulation suits your needs.
Fiberglass insulation is the smart choice for homes as well as commercial and industrial buildings because it can make your living spaces and workplaces more comfortable and energy-efficient.
As the name suggests, fiberglass is made of tiny glass fibers. You have probably seen fiberglass insulation in a hardware store or your own home. It has a cotton candy-like appearance (and is often pink) but doesn’t feel like it. We would not recommend you touch it ― at least not with bare hands!
Blown-In Fiberglass Insulation
A blown-in blanket insulation system (BIBS) comprises fiberglass blown-in wool specifically manufactured for use with this installation method. Blown-in fiber insulation creates a tight fill around pipes and other irregular features to provide a high R-value and thermal protection in an easy, effective manner. R-value is the capacity of an insulating material’s resistance to heat flow.
Blown-in fiberglass insulation is used in Savannah-area residential homes and commercial buildings for its high density and savings on energy costs. IBP Savannah carries brands of fiberglass BIBS insulation made with 20–30% recycled glass, making it an eco-friendly insulation option.
This insulation can be sprayed into many areas or crevices of your home, from the attic to the walls. In new construction projects, BIBS installs behind a special fabric to create a seamless blanket that fills voids in walls, including around any electrical protrusions.
Batt Fiberglass Insulation
Batt fiberglass insulation is one of the most common and cost-effective insulation options and has been used for decades to insulate new homes and additions. It comes in lightweight, easy-to-use rolls in various thicknesses and lengths, and can be installed quickly and affordably by the professionals at IBP Savannah.
Batt fiberglass insulation comes with or without facing, which must be placed according to the manufacturer’s specifications to resist water vapor transfer. Both have an R-value from R-2.9 up to R-4.3 per inch.
Panels of fiberglass insulation, also known as “batts,” are perfect for insulating unfinished walls, floors and ceilings. Batt insulation is very flexible, allowing for easier installation between studs, rafters and joint blocks.

How Does Fiberglass Insulation Work?
The manufacturing process of fiberglass insulation provides resistance to heat flow. First, a mixture is prepared with the right amount of raw ingredients and melted at a temperature of 2,500 degrees F.
The molten glass flows from the furnace into a cylindrical container with small holes. As the container spins, glass flows out of the holes. An air blast separates the filaments into short strands, which fall onto a conveyor belt and intertwine into a soft batt of fiberglass insulation.
The fiberglass fibers trap pockets of air, slowing the movement of heat through them. When installed in a home or commercial building, fiberglass helps keep conditioned air inside and decreases heating and cooling costs as a result. Fiberglass insulation is used primarily for thermal and acoustical purposes in wall cavities, attics and other critical open spaces in building assemblies. One of its key advantages is value.
According to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI), fiberglass insulates and slows the spread of heat, cold and sound in structures by trapping pockets of air, keeping rooms warm in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Fiberglass insulation can be installed anywhere in your home or commercial building, including as:
- Wall insulation
- Basement insulation
- Crawl space insulation
- Attic insulation
- Garage insulation
- Ceiling insulation
- Floor insulation
With increased attention to energy conservation, fiberglass insulation has become popular and recognized as one of the most significant solutions for the energy efficiency of your furnace and air conditioner. It can help you save on your energy bills and make your home or commercial building more comfortable all year long.
