Frequently Ask Questions
It depends! Every type of insulation has it’s pros and cons. When you’re looking for attic insulation, you want to consider moisture and mold resistance. Typically most homes benefit the most from some type of spray foam insulation. However, not all spray foams are alike (as if you weren’t already confused!). Read on about the different types of insulation to get a better understanding of what they each accomplish and why you might prefer one over another.
There are five main types or categories of insulation: spray, blown, batt or rolls, rigid foam board, and radiant barrier. You may have heard of only some of these, but most of us have seen most of these types of insulation and not known the differences. Click on our services pages to learn about all the different types of insulation and why you might choose one over another.
Most of us are familiar with fiberglass batts or rolls, blown in insulation, and maybe have heard of spray foam insulation. Though batts and loose fill or blown in insulation can be effective, they certainly have their downsides. For example, they have lower r-values than spray foam or rigid board, so you need more of it to achieve whatever r-value you’re hoping for. Also, they are messy. Loose fill and batts can be bad for breathing and can spread around easily. They can also make an area unusable, as you can’t walk on loose fill or fiberglass bats, and want to avoid rubbing up against them. This is why the best types of insulation are closed-cell spray foam or rigid foam board, more specifically, Ecoguard. These types cost a little more but never settle or degrade, can bump shoulders without hurting you, and are mold and moisture resistant.
Insulation varies in cost based on type of insulation used, the condition of the space where it will be applied, the size of the space, and the desired R-value. In general, insulation from least expensive to most expensive are: batts or rolls, foam board, blown in cellulose or fiberglass, spray foam, and the most expensive type is SIPS or Structural Insulated Panels.
The short answer is, you can do it but it will cost you a lot of time and effort. The long answer is, you can diy attic insulation, but it’s a big project and if done improperly you will end up spending more time and money repairing it instead of letting a qualified installer take care of all aspects (cleaning, removal of old insulation, proper air sealing, install, and ventilation). Each home is unique and if you don’t have the right equipment to run water and thermal tests on your space, you will likely miss something in a DIY project that could cost you in water damage, mold, or lost energy costs down the road. Other unforseen issues can be improperly checking your electrical work that will go under your insulation. If you have an old home with knob and tube or other outdated wiring, you can increase the chance of fire in your home. Unless you’re extremely handy, let the experts take care of this one and keep everyone safe!
Some of us have homes so old that the walls either have no insulation, or old newspapers! The best insulation for walls is something that can be easily applied with little damage to the type of wall you have. Usually blown-in or spray foam is best for hard-to-reach areas. If it’s a new build, fiberglass batts are the most common and best option for walls, as there is typically less concern for moisture in walls than in attics.
R-value recommendations for attic insulation vary based on location, but most insulation contractors will recommend anywhere between R-33 and R-49 for an attic or ceiling space, with the most common recommendation being R-38. The amount of inches of insulation needed to achieve this varies by insulation type, with fewer inches for spray foam and more for blown-in cellulose.
Though the number can vary from house to house, many homeowners are surprised to find a 30% decreaase in their utility bills for heating and cooling after insulating. They also enjoy the increase of comfort on all levels of the home, with a shortened amount of time needed to heat or cool a specific space.
