Save Money with Attic Insulation Installation in Atlanta

Having the proper amount of insulation in your attic can make your Atlanta home more pleasant throughout the seasons. Better energy efficiency could also help you save money on energy bills.

Does My Home Have Enough Attic Insulation?

You can check existing insulation to determine if you have enough in your attic. If it’s lower than 7” deep, your Atlanta home lacks enough insulation. Depending on where you live, between 13-14″ of insulation to as much as as 16-18″ of insulation will be what’s recommended. In addition, if your home is older than 10 years, you’ll most likely need more attic insulation in your Atlanta home.

Types of Attic Insulation

There are three kinds of attic insulation—spray foam, loose fill and batt.

Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation uses liquids that expand into a foam on contact. Closed- or open-cell applications can be used in attics.

Closed-cell foam provides the most insulation. It also creates a broad barrier against air, vapor and water.

Open-cell foam expands when applied, collecting in cracks and other hard-to-reach spaces. It’s best for blocking air but isn’t 100 percent waterproof.

Both types of spray foam insulation may even help absorb noise.

Loose Fill and Batt Insulation for Attics

Loose fill insulation is installed using specialized machinery, while batt insulation is rolls that can be cut to fit. Insulating material can include fiberglass, cellulose, mineral wool and cotton.

Insulation is rated for its resistance to heat flow. This is also called the R-value. Different levels are suggested based on where you live.
