As you’re preparing to insulate your home, one of your first questions will most likely be, “How much insulation do I need?” The amount of insulation your home needs primarily depends on two factors:
While a DIY attic inspection is a good start, we recommend having a Boise insulation contractor inspect your home to determine how much new insulation you need.

R-value is an important part of insulation—it is an indication of a particular material’s resistance to conductive heat flow. In general, the higher the R-value (thermal resistance), the greater the insulation’s effectiveness.
The R-value depends on the insulation’s type/material, thickness and density. Although a higher R-value in general means a more effective insulator, the highest R-value possible may not necessarily be right for your project.
One example of this is if the space you’re insulating already has existing levels of insulation. Also, houses in certain climates don’t need as much insulation as others. For example, homeowners in Florida don’t need to worry about insulating against extremely cold temperatures—the weather is quite different here in Idaho. That’s why different regions of the United States have different recommended insulation levels. Here in Ada County, we are in zone 5.
