What You Need to Know About Attic Insulation


So, you are insulating your attic. Or perhaps, considering improving the existing insulation in your attic. Do not fret — one of the premier attic insulation companies in the area shares everything you need to know about attic insulation here.

What Is Attic Insulation?

Attic insulation provides a barrier that prevents energy loss from the interior of your home to the exterior. It also protects the residents from outside temperatures as the seasons change. This results in a cooler home in the summer and a warmer home in the winter. To adequately insulate an attic is so effective that its cost is often recouped through energy savings in less than a year.

What Is R-Value?

R-value refers to the capacity of an insulating material to resist heat flow. You will need a different R-value depending on the part of your home you are insulating. For ceilings and attics, the best attic insulation values are R-30, R-38 and R-49.

What Are the Types of Attic Insulation?

Loose fill or blown in insulation. This is an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly form of insulation. It provides a dense barrier against heat loss due to its high percentage of recycled content. It is best for attic spaces with several penetrations and obstructions to work around. Bone Dry Roofing installs blown in attic insulation.

Spray foam insulation. This is an advanced and energy-efficient type of attic insulation. It is best for attics that experience high amounts of moisture and have pest control issues.

Fiberglass batt insulation. This insulation consists of fine glass fibers and contains 25% to 50% recycled content. It is highly heat resistant and the quickest to install. Many insulation companies recommend it for attics with standard joist spacing.

Bone Dry Roofing Nashville is a trusted roof repair and roof replacement company. We also install Owens Corning® ProCat® insulation for attics to offer a thermal barrier that can help save you money on utility bills.
