When it comes to insulating your walls and ceilings, not all insulation is created equal. In a broad sense, the main reason insulation is used is for its thermal resistance, preventing energy loss and saving you energy on your utility bills.
Stone wool insulation, commonly reffered to by “mineral wool” or the name brand “Rockwool/Roxul” is made of organic stone and minerals and in addition to its thermal resistance, here are the benefits:
· Excellent sound dampening
· Fire-resistant and non-combustible
· Moisture resistant
· Won’t promote mold and mildew growth
· Easy to install
Stone wool insulation can be used in exterior and interior walls. Using it between rooms dramatically reduces noise traveling from room to room so say goodbye to noisy kids and that squeaky washer and dryer!
