Why It’s Important to Properly Insulate Your Attic
Properly insulating your attic will help protect your home and your finances. Insulation can seal any gaps or cracks that can allow moisture or heat into your attic. It can also help reduce your utility bills in the summer months by keeping the cool temperatures inside your home and not letting the cool air drift out through the attic. Other advantages include combating issues with air quality in your home, removing humidity and blocking out exterior noise pollution.
Most Common Types of Attic Insulation
When insulating your attic, you have many choices for the type of insulation to use, and the process for applying it. Some of the most popular types of insulation are:
- Fiberglass batts: Fiberglass batts are popular because they are easy to purchase and install. However, this material might not properly insulate your attic, especially if it is not installed by a professional.
- Cellulose: Cellulose insulation is made from recycled materials. Professionals typically use wet-spray cellulose, which helps control the dust when it’s being applied. Cellulose can help control air movement as it’s dense enough to stop most air movement to help prevent frost in attics.
- Loose-fill fiberglass: Loose-fill fiberglass is popular in new homes. This can be blown in with a large machine. Fiberglass can be itchy if it touches your skin, so it should be installed by professionals.
- Spray foam: Spray foam is one of the best performing insulation options. You can select from closed-cell and open-cell foam. When installed, professionals ensure the spray foam fills in all of the small spaces in the attic. When applied properly, air will not be able to move through the attic.

Signs Your Attic Insulation Needs to Be Repaired or Replaced
It can be difficult to visually look at your attic insulation and determine if it needs to be repaired or replaced. After all, how often are you up in your attic? Fortunately, there are signs you can look for in the main area of your home that indicate you need to have a professional inspect your attic insulation:
- Varying indoor temperatures: Poor insulation can prevent your home from being properly heated or cooled as outdoor air enters, changing the comfort levels of your house.
- Increasing utility bills: Higher energy bills can indicate your attic insulation needs to be inspected. Poor insulation can cause your air conditioner or heating system to overwork, using more energy.
- Wet insulation: If you notice you have wet or moist insulation, it’s necessary to replace the insulation. Wet insulation can cause mold to grow, which can release toxins into the indoor air in your home.
- Drafts in your home: If you notice drafts in your home, it can indicate you don’t have proper insulation in your attic, which is allowing air to enter your home.
