We use Owens Corning pink fiberglass blown-in and batt insulation.
Tab through to learn more about the sustainability of Owens Corning Insulation and how it compares to other insulation materials.
Owens Corning fiberglass insulation is the pink product that is a green solution.
Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) has certified Owens Corning insulation as the industry’s highest certified recycled glass content at 35%.
In addition, Owens Corning Pink Fiberglass insualtion is Greenguard Certified. The Greenguard Environmental Institute is one of the most recognized and highly regarded third-party product certifications for testing VOC emissions (Volatile Organic Compounds).
As you search out various insulation products, one alternative you may find to fiberglass insulation is a cellulose product that is made from paper and other wood-based materials. Be sure to ask your All Season Insulation representative for a comprehensive explanation of the differences, but here are a few to consider:
- Fiber Glass – less than 2% settling of blown-in insulation means you get the R-value that is expected
- Cellulose – up to 25% settling equates to a 15-25% loss of the original R-value
- Fiber Glass – Owens Corning Pink fiberglass is naturally non-combustible and classified as such per ASTM E 136
- Cellulose – Due to paper and wood-based nature, must be treated with fire-retardant chemicals to be acceptable for use in building construction
- Fiber Glass – non-absorbent and installed dry
- Cellulose – naturally absorbent and often applied with water
We use EShield 11000 Attic Energy Barrier.
EShield is a radiant barrier insulation that consists of a 1/4-inch fiberglass core that is bonded to two layers of 99% pure aluminium.
Heat transfers in and out of your home through three primary modes: radiation, conduction and convection.
The foil in EShield can reflect up to 97% of all radiant energy that strikes it, helping you retain your heat in the winter (and keep it out in the summer). How much heat gain/loss in your home is due to radiant transfer (by room)?
Heat Loss (Walls)
Heat Loss (Roof)
Summer Heat Gain
- Safe – Superior fire ratings
- Bird and rodent resistant
- No itchy fibers
- Eliminates hot walls associated with knee walls in bonus room
- Can lower attic temperatures up to 40 degrees
- Combines radiant/conduction/convection protection
We can use other methods depending on your unique needs (sound-proofing, etc).
