Adding Attic Insulation Saves Energy

Joseph Coupal - Saturday, January 12, 2013

Now that winter is in full swing, you may be tired of paying high energy bills. By installing additional attic insulation you can keep winter heating bills and summer cooling bills down.

Generally, the recommendations for insulation are:

Attic ---------------------------R 38
Wall ---------------------------R 13
Floor --------------------------R 25, Over Unheated Space
Crawl Space Wall -----------R 25
Basement Wall Interior -----R 11

These insulation levels balance the cost of insulating and the return in energy savings.

There are two types of additional insulation that can be installed in your attic: fiberglass batts (blanket insulation) or blown-in insulation, either cellulose or fiberglass.

Blanket insulation or batts gives you a slightly better R value per inch.
 
Remember the better you home is insulated, the lower your heating bills. Adding insulation will pay for itself through energy savings.
