Where to Insulate
Where should a home be insulated? It’s best to talk to insulation professionals. They’ll also be able to tell you how much insulation you need and the best types of insulation to install, but in general, you should insulate:
- Attics: In general, knee walls should be insulated, as they leak easily and can compromise the energy efficiency of your home. Floors may also need to be insulated. Installing insulation is particularly important if your attic is a finished living space, like a bedroom.
- Walls: Both the interior and exterior walls of your home should be insulated. Behind your interior walls, it may be recommended to insulate ductwork and around pipes and wiring.
- Crawl spaces: If your home has a crawl space, it needs to be insulated, as well as properly weatherized and sealed. Otherwise, you could end up dealing with issues like moisture problems and soil vapor intrusion.
In short, it’s important to insulate everywhere in your home to ensure the highest year-round energy efficiency and comfort! Here at Big City Insulation of Idaho, we install batt fiberglass, blown-in fiberglass and cellulose insulation in homes.
