When it comes to bulk insulation, there are 2 types that are widely popular and used. They are as follows.
- Cellulose Fibre – Just like shredded paper, cellulose fibre has a similar appearance. With the help of a machine, the professional insulation contractor ensures the ceiling is pumped with fibre. The blowing method of the fibre is based on the R-value of this type of insulation. Although it is a relatively easy job, many experts believe that this type of insulation becomes weaker as time passes.
- Glasswool Batts – The second most popular type of bulk insulation is the glasswool batts which is also known as fiberglass batts or blankets. This type of insulation has different R-values making it flexible in nature. During the time of installation of this insulation, the professional needs to wear the necessary safety equipment such as face masks, gloves, and more for safety reasons. When it comes to the time of installation, the professional can do so by installing it on the roof of your home. This is to ensure no moisture enters the premises. However, it is also important to consider a different type of insulation in the event of having too many gaps or spaces. The gaps or spaces will only allow the entry of dust and fibre particles inside making it dangerous for the health. But if there isn’t an issue related to gaps or spaces, then glasswool batts insulation works best.
