There are many benefits to consider when choosing batt insulation for your Portland area home. It is a cost-efficient option, offers varying degrees of sound absorption, can reduce energy costs, and is available in different materials and thicknesses to help achieve optimal energy efficiency.
Batt insulation or often referred to as blanket insulation, generally consists of fiberglass, mineral wool and even denim cotton. It is pre-cut and sized to fit most standard building sizes and are best suited for residential houses and commercial applications. Most commonly it is used in between wall studs, attic rafters, and ceiling joists. This type of insulation can be used throughout the house, insulating floors, walls, ceiling, and attics as well as basements and crawl spaces.

LEARN ALL ABOUT BATT INSULATION!
Fiberglass batt is the most common type of batt insulation in Portland, Hillsboro and Beaverton . It is comprised of recycled glass that is melted down and spun into a molten liquid to produce thin fibers. Binders are added to hold the fibers together to create batts, rolls, and loose-fill insulation.
Mineral wool is created from natural spun-stone and natural minerals. It is made by spinning molten basalt and/or blast-furnace slag (a waste product of molten metal). Mineral wool insulation is fireproof and has a higher density than fiberglass batts, creating a better sound barrier.
Denim insulation is made from post-consumer recycled natural fibers, such as denim jeans. Denim insulation is non-toxic and has a Class A fire rating, it is also mold and mildew resistant.
When installed correctly, batt insulation blocks most gaps and creates a moderate seal, reducing the flow of air and the transfer of heat. Batt insulation is manufactured with tiny air pockets inside, which blocks air flow, if packed too tight, compression can occur allowing air transfer, making it less effective. A Koala Insulation expert will install your insulation correctly, making sure the insulation is installed at the right R-value.
Batt insulation is cost effective and efficient and does not settle, maintaining it’s effectiveness over time. With proper instulation, it’s snug fit reduces the transfer of heat through your home. Decreasing the amount of power required to cool or heat a house by as much as 60%.
When choosing Batt insulation, R-value matters. Insulation is labeled by R-value. R stands for resistance to heat flow, the greater the R-value, the higher the insulating power. Koala installers have the knowledge and experience to recommend and install the right density and thickness (R-value).
Depending on where you live, different climate zones require different R-values. If you live in a colder climate zone, like the northeast, you’ll will need a higher R-value of insulation, then if you live in a milder climate zone. Typical recommendations for exterior walls are R-13 to R-23, while R-30, R-38 and R-49 are common for ceilings and attic spaces. Proper batt insulation must be installed higher and over your ceiling joists or wall studs, this allow for optimal insulating.
