Fiber glass and mineral wool insulation products help maintain a consistent air temperature throughout the building, absorb noise, and conserve energy.
Use of recycled materials also contributes to the low embodied energy of fiber glass and mineral wool insulations because it requires less energy to produce these products with a combination of raw and recycled materials than through the use of raw material alone.
