Insulation, Hazards and Clean options

Insulating is an important part of the home construction process and it also plays a role in energy costs incurred. A home that is appropriately insulated will see average utility bills because the air conditioning and heating systems will work efficiently in the right conditions. A lot depends on the type of insulation used in your house. About 90 percent of insulated homes in the United States have fiberglass insulation. This type of insulation is made from different materials like sand and recycled glass. Foam, cellulose, vermiculite, and perlite are the other less common types of insulation used. Each one of these has its own sets of drawbacks and dangers.

Government agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and city health departments have issued warnings to residents about the presence of asbestos and other harmful agents in home insulation. Vermiculite insulation which is predominantly found in concrete walls is known to contain asbestos and is seen in older houses.

Being aware of what dangers insulation can pose to you and your family will stand you in good stead should the need arise. At times, it is difficult to understand why certain ailments have sprung up suddenly among your family members. Knowing the possibilities is one way of being prepared to tackle the problems.

Fiberglass insulation poses many health risks

Fiberglass insulation poses many health risks. Imagine what happens when a window is broken: the glass is extremely sharp and is very dangerous. Fiberglass insulation has the same effect on our skin, lungs, and eyes. The area exposed to fiberglass will become itchy and irritated. If these small particles of glass become lodged deep in the lungs serious respiratory conditions may result.

OSHA even requires fiberglass insulation to be packaged with a label citing it as a possible carcinogen. Several government agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency recognize the carcinogenic potential of fiberglass insulation.

Those most at risk are those who are installing or working near the fiberglass insulation. There are risks to those who inhabit the home as well. Many homes with forced air heating systems have leaks. Leaky ducts can suck in fiberglass particles and spread them around the house. The resins used to bond the fiberglass can also emit small amounts of toxic fumes.

Not only is fiberglass insulation harmful to us, it is also bad for the environment. Production of fiberglass insulation involves melting materials in a furnace, which uses up precious fossil fuels. Fiberglass also uses a rare mineral: boron. There are two main deposits of boron in the world, one of which is in the U.S. The number one use for baron is fiberglass insulation. At the current rate of extraction the U.S. deposit will not last more than 60 years.
