Insulation

Adding insulation beneath your roof can help control the temperature inside your home and thereby reduce what you spend to heat and cool it. Insulation is rated for its resistance to heat flow with an “R-Value.” The higher the R-Value, the greater the insulating power.

Different roof types and structures call for different types of insulation, the most common of which are described below. Another factor to consider when determining the type and amount of insulation you need is the climate in which you live.

Ultimately, your fuel savings from insulation will depend upon the climate, the type and size of your house, the amount of insulation already in your house, your fuel use patterns, and family size. To get the marked R-Value of any insulation, the insulation will need to be installed properly.

Depending on the level of insulation you choose, you could be eligible for a federal energy efficiency tax credit for insulating your home.

Insulation Types

Radiant Barrier

Aluminum sheathing beneath the roof that minimizes radiant heat gain during summer months and minimizes heat loss in colder seasons.

Rolled Insulation

Typically made of fiberglass and available in different thicknesses, this insulation is unrolled and cut to fit the spaces between the attic ceiling joists beneath the roof.

Blown Insulation

Typically comprised of cellulose or fiberglass, this insulation is blown into the spaces between the attic ceiling joists.
