A Cave of Cotton Candy!
Note: Coming into extended contact or eating fiberglass can cause serious health problems. Please keep small children away and use caution.
The scary room lurking just a few feet above your head is typically one of the least visited places in the home. It is remarked for its odd bizarre characteristic of being filled with pinkish white cotton candy textured substance. This place is known as none other than the Attic.While it may look like fun to play in the puffy pink clouds, or fiberglass as its known in the construction world, its not to be messed with except by professionals.
What is fiberglass?
Fiberglass is made of recycled plastic, glass, and sometimes sand. It keeps your home at a comfortable temperature by insulating you from the changes of the outside world. In other words, it stops the heat from escaping. This can save significantly on your energy bill by not requiring your air conditioning unit to work as hard.
When to Replace your Insulation
While fiberglass is designed to last for decades at a time, over the years it can wear down. If your home is older and you notice a large spike in your electric bill during the summer it might be the insulation to blame.
When fiberglass becomes wet it is also time for a replacement. Due to its absorbent nature fiberglass will soak up water. Caught early enough, fiberglass can be dried but if left to sit the best/easiest course of action is to replace it.
