Excellent Thermal Performance Owens Corning™ R-21 EcoTouch® insulation is specifically engineered to solve the efficiency problems of exterior 2×6 walls. “High density” means more fibers per square inch. It delivers a higher R-value per square inch in less space than standard insulation products.
R-21 EcoTouch® insulation is available in batts, unfaced and faced with a kraft vapor retarder. Long-Term Performance R-21 EcoTouch® insulation will not hold water, thereby resisting the permanent loss of R-value.
When properly installed, R-21 EcoTouch® insulation will not settle or deteriorate, ensuring that the insulating value of the insulation is maintained for the life of the product. Maximum R-Value at Lower Costs R-21 EcoTouch® insulation is designed to eliminate R-value loss caused by compressing standard R-19 Fiberglas™ insulation into 2×6 exterior walls. 5½ ” thick R-21 EcoTouch® insulation delivers 19% more R-value than compressed 6¼ ” R-19 Fiberglas™ insulation. Technical Information.
The kraft facing on this insulation will burn and must not be left exposed. Install facing in substantial contact with the finish material. Protect from open flame or other heat source.

Insulating Walls with Fiberglass
If you are insulating two-by-four) and 2×6 mounted exterior walls and also wish to utilize fiberglass insulation, what thickness is best? The inquiry becomes all a lot more critical because of the long-term nature of wall construction and also wall cavity insulation: Once the insulation is installed the wall cavity and also sealed up with drywall, it is difficult to change out.
When you install insufficient insulation, you will certainly have a colder house. But installing too much insulation– compressing in greater than is required– can also cause a colder home than is needed. Tiny air pockets created within the insulation are what help maintain a house toasty as well as warm, not the tiny hairs of fiberglass or paper facing. Striking a perfect balance in between inadequate insulation and way too much insulation will keep you and your household cozy throughout the winter.
Essentials of Kraft Faced/Unfaced Fiberglass Insulation, From R13 to R-21
R-value is a common system of measurement for identifying, among several points, just how efficient your insulation will be. The R refers to absolute thermal resistance. Greater R-value numbers indicate that the fiberglass material resists the chill or warmth from the outdoors better. Thickness, width, and also type of products are some aspects that contribute to R-value.
Insulation for 2 by 6 Wall Cavities
Some more recent residences may have wall studs created with 2×6 studs. Use R-19 or R-21 kraft-faced fiberglass insulation for 2 by 6 walls. This mix ensures that the insulation is neither too loose neither too securely packed within the wall bay.
Owens Corning insulation is offered in large box shops as well as also can be bought with suppliers like Pacific Insulation. Pacific Insulation supplies a distinct chance to get the very same items at retails stores at wholesale pricing. Home owner as well as contractors have the possibility to purchase small or large amounts straight from the distributor. By acquiring straight from the wholesaler we are able to offer reduced rates. Purchasers can get from one of our 70 warehouses or we can deliver direct to your project site.
U.S. Department of Energy Recommended Total R-Values
The following 2008 Department of Energy zone recommendations are based on comparing estimated future energy savings to the current cost of installing insulation. The DOE gives a range for many locations for the following reasons:
- Energy costs vary greatly over each zone
- Installed insulation costs vary greatly over each zone
- Heating and cooling equipment efficiency varies from house to house
- Best estimate of future energy costs may not be exact.
