Differences Between Fiberglass and Cellulose Attic Insulation in Atlanta Homes

attic insulation AtlantaMany types of materials are used in attic insulation, but Atlanta homeowners are commonly presented with two options: cellulose and fiberglass. Why these two materials? Both are time-tested and highly efficient at reducing conductive and convective heat transfer within your attic. However, there are many other factors to consider when deciding between cellulose and fiberglass attic insulation for your Atlanta home, including the following:

How these two types of insulation are made: Cellulose insulation is generally made from recycled newspaper and textile products whereas fiberglass was invented by the Owens Corning company in the late 1930s and consists of tiny glass fibers. However, both types of insulation are resistant to fire and can provide many years of thermal protection.

Where these kinds of insulation can be installed: Fiberglass batts and rolls are ideal for unobstructed spaces between joists and rafters, and cellulose loosefill can be applied in both open areas and within tight spaces. For new Atlanta houses, attic insulation in batt or roll form is often chosen because it can be easily installed during the construction process, whereas loosefill may be the more feasible option for spraying into the attic space of a finished home.

How they handle moisture: Humidity is a major issue in the South, and that’s why it’s important to consider how moisture will affect the attic insulation in your Atlanta home. Fiberglass and cellulose handle water differently; cellulose absorbs moisture and may lose R value as a result whereas fiberglass doesn’t wick up water but can still become saturated. In either case, a vapor barrier can help reduce moisture intrusion and provide a layer of protection for your insulation.
