Where Should I Add Insulation in My Home?

Have your energy bills been on the rise for seemingly no reason? Has it felt drafty and uncomfortable in your home? You may need more insulation! But where should you insulate? Talking to professionals is the best way to determine the right solutions for your home—but generally, insulation should be installed in the:

  • Attic
  • Walls
  • Lower level (basement and/or crawl space)

Where to Install Insulation in Your Home

Insulation is installed in many areas of a home, including:

Attics

As a significant source of energy loss, the attic is a good place to insulate. Although every attic can vary slightly, knee walls, floors and ceilings are generally insulated. In climates that are warm year round, like Texas, professionals often install radiant barrier under the roofline to reflect heat from the sun and help keep your home cooler and more energy-efficient.

Walls

Both interior and exterior walls should be insulated. Also, behind your walls, there are wires, pipes and ductwork and it may be recommended to insulate around them. In general, the best types of wall insulation are blown-in fiberglass, loose-fill cellulose and spray foam.

Basements

The basement holds a lot of potential for energy savings, even if it’s unfinished and you never use it. Insulation can be installed in basement walls, the ceiling and around ductwork, plumbing, and electrical wiring. In general, the best types of basement insulation are foam and fiberglass.

Crawl Spaces

Does your home have a crawl space? If so, it should be insulated. Crawl space insulation can help reduce air leaks, control moisture problems and prevent issues like frozen pipes, soil vapor intrusion and more. Floor joists, walls and subflooring should be insulated, depending on whether the crawl space is ventilated or unventilated—and we can help you determine which one you have.
