What are the disadvantages of fiberglass insulation?
The Disadvantages of Fiberglass Insulation
- Carcinogens. Fiberglass insulation may contain cancer-causing materials.
- Lifespan. Fiberglass insulation can settle over time.
- Energy Use. While fiberglass insulation may save energy once installed, the manufacturing process is not particularly green.

What is the difference between Owens 703 and Owens 705?
Regarding the performance of the fiberglass, keep in mind that 703 has a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of close to 1 starting from around 300Hz and up. These boards will work perfect upwards of about 250Hz. However, bass trapping is another story.. While you could layer these up, if you want bass trapping, Owens 705 does a much better job.
