Types of Attic Insulation

There are different types of insulation available for use in your home, each with its own benefits. The type of attic insulation you choose will depend on a number of factors, including your location, the climate and how old your house is. A professional insulation contractor will be able to advise you on the best type of insulation for your home.

Benefits of Attic Insulation for Your Home

Fiberglass batts are a common choice of attic insulation. They are made from recycled sand and glass and are both light-weight and flame-resistant. They can be installed in standard wall studs and attic joists, or in floor joists. Fiberglass rolls are also available for installation in walls and ceilings. They come in longer segments than fiberglass batts and can be cut to fit your specific application.

Loose-fill insulation is also referred to as blown-in insulation and comes in various widths suited for standard wall stud and attic joist spacing. It can be made from fiberglass, mineral wool or cellulose. It is a good choice for areas where there are multiple small holes, such as electrical and plumbing vents and fixtures.

Insulation can reduce the amount of energy it takes to keep your house at a comfortable temperature, and it will help to save on your utility bills. It can also improve the soundproofing of your home, especially if you have cathedral ceilings. Having proper attic insulation is an important step in keeping your house comfortable, but it can be a difficult task to tackle for homeowners without the right tools and safety equipment.
