Why Fiberglass Insulation Is Essential in Alaska, Anchorage, Alaska

The Alaskan environment can be harsh, which is why it is essential to have a well-insulated home that will keep the temperature comfortable throughout the year. It is also crucial to install the correct type of insulation to stand up to the extreme temperatures without fail. Alas-Co General Construction are the expert installers in the Anchorage area, and they know why it is so important to have fiberglass insulation in your Alaskan home.

fiberglass insulationFiberglass insulation is designed for heavy-duty coverage in residential and commercial spaces. It has top-notch thermal resistance and is flexible enough to be installed between studs and in rafters and joists without leaving any space in between. This is beneficial in Alaskan weather because it stops air flow and any transfer of heat, keeping your home warm in the often extreme temperatures. Because of its ability to reduce the transfer of heat, it decreases the amount of energy you need to cool or heat your home, improves your home’s energy efficiency, and saves you money.

Fiberglass insulation is also moisture resistant and resists the buildup of mold. It also comes in a variety of affordable thicknesses, sizes, and R-values. The higher the R-value, the less heat transfer takes place. With the flexibility of fiberglass insulation, you can stack layers to achieve a higher R-value if you can’t find the thickness you need. This allows you to easily insulate your home against Alaskan weather at a cost-effective price.

The energy efficiency and savings associated with fiberglass insulation make it a good choice for your insulation needs in a cold climate. A professional construction contractor like Alas-Co General Construction can help you determine the proper R-value and thickness you need to insulate your home and will expertly install it for you.
