Do I Need To Insulate My Attic?

As a significant source of energy loss in homes, the attic should be properly insulated. Even if yours isn’t finished, it’s important to insulate it. Failing to ensure you have the right amount of insulation in your attic can hinder your attempts at energy efficiency.

Installing attic or loft insulation can help:

  • Lower energy bills
  • Make your home more comfortable
  • Create a more even temperature throughout your house
  • Reduce outside noises
  • Improve overall home insulation efforts
  • Create a healthier environment in your home

Do you have the right type of insulation in the attic of your Albany home?

Types of Attic Insulation We Install

Depending on your attic and unique situation, different materials may be the most viable solution (there’s no one type of insulation that’s right for every attic space).

Our insulation contractors install:

  • Fiberglass insulation: This is one of the most commonly installed types of insulation and works well in many attics.
  • Cellulose insulation: This is one of the most environmentally friendly insulation materials, and, like blown-in fiberglass, it’s a good sound absorber.
  • Spray foam insulation: This is ideal for spaces with obstructions like pipes and wiring since it fits snugly in awkward and irregularly shaped areas.

Attic Insulation FAQ

Can I install new attic insulation over old insulation?

New insulation can be placed over the top of existing insulation without much complication in most circumstances. You should first carefully inspect the existing insulation to ensure it isn’t damp or otherwise compromised.

Hiding damaged insulation behind new insulation will end up costing you more in the long run than removing it and going with all-new insulation. If your existing insulation looks good, know that you don’t need as much as you would when going all-new (see the next question for more details).

What R-value is recommended for my attic?

ENERGY STAR® recommendations for attic R-values are determined by which climate zone your home is in — in Albany and most nearby areas, that’s Zone 5. For this category, you want between R-49 and R-60 worth of insulation in your attic, assuming you’re installing new insulation.

If you’re adding insulation and already have 3 to 4 inches of insulation in good condition, you can cut that to R-38 to R-49 worth of insulation.

How much insulation does an attic need?

A few factors determine how much attic insulation you need in total, and R-value is only part of the equation. In addition to hitting your energy efficiency goals in terms of R-value, attic insulation also helps keep moisture, air pollution and noise pollution out of your home.

Depending on what problems you have with your attic, filling small nooks and crannies with the right kind of insulation might be more important than hitting your target R-value — or at least just as important.

If you have goals beyond energy efficiency and keeping heat from passing through your attic, be sure to speak with experts about your goals and needs.
