Product Overview

Choosing The Right Insulation

Faced Insulation

Faced

Face insulation uses kraft paper vapor barrier to control moisture transmission between 
walls and floors 

*Check your local building code for requirements
Unfaced Insulation

Unfaced

Unfaced insulation does not have a vapor barrier; used over existing insulation in the attic, or where moisture control is not needed

Rolls Insulation

Rolls

Continuous rolls are easy to transport and can be cut to length; great for large areas

Batts Insulation

Batts

Come in pre-cut lengths for faster installation and each package contains more square feet than rolls; ideal for framed cavities

Blow-In Insulation

Blow-In Insulation

Installed using blowing machines, best for adding additional insulation in attic

Regional R-Values

Customer Questions & Answers

How many batts are in a bag of attic insulation?

Asked by: Anonymous
Probably none, depending on situation. Batt is not a measurement. It refers to weather (pun) or not the insulation is faced with a material. Hope that helps.

can this product be used in a drop ceiling application? I am wanting to change out older batting to a higher rating and thickness. currently has 4" inch batting with a lower r - rating. my concern is will the current ceiling tile grid support the extra weight?
Asked by: willoughby
You can use it, but unfaced will probably be a cheaper option. You don't need Kraft faced when placing on suspended ceilings

R-30 Kraft Faced Insulation Batts 24 in. x 48 in. is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17.

(the scratching is much more tolerable with this product). you still need a face mask and a whole-body-suit during the installation. that is the best personal protection. -- some of the batches got wet on the edge and we laid them out in the sun but the heat/sun will not dry it out, so we had to cut the wet area off, lucky it was just a small slice we had to cut. -- the one drawback - the prizes. insulation is not cheap and buying in bulk saves money. However i don't think home depot will take back any left over.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality insulation just slightly expensive Cheaper than price of some batts but still almost twice that of similar rolled insulation. Not sure why batts have to be expensive. It does fluff out very easily and nicely compared to the R30 rolled I picked up. Also fun to open up, slice a bag open and look out you've got a big pile of insulation on your hands. Kids would love watching that part of it, even adults slightly amused at how much volume is in one of these bags. Used these batts as first layer of an R60 combo. Second layer ownes R30 unfaced rolled. The insulation on the batts seams bit fluffier and better quality. They're a nice size too and easy to piece together and get up into an attic opening. Plan to do rest of the house with same stuff. Will need 7 more bags. These bags are pretty heavy and bulky so eat your wheaties before heading out to the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The R-30 fiberglas insulation in a bag was easy to install The 24" x 48" Batts by Owens Corning were a pleasure to work with. The last experience I had with fiberglas batt insulation was years ago. I remember that after working a few hours, my hands and arms were very itchy. I tried wearing gloves but that was pretty clumsy. The material has been greatly improved and there is no more discomfort installing it. It was just amazing to watch the batts expand to their full depth, after the bags were split open.
