Does My Home Have Enough Attic Insulation?

You can assess existing insulation to determine if you have enough in your attic. If it’s less than 7” deep, your Champaign home is underinsulated. 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 likely need more attic insulation in your Champaign home.

Strengthening your insulation levels could positively impact your energy bills, saving you up to 20 percent.** It can act as a vapor barrier against humidity, minimize air leaks, and may limit wear and tear on your HVAC system.

**Savings may vary.

Types of Attic Insulation

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

Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation combines liquids that convert 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 an extensive barrier against air, vapor and water.

Open-cell foam spreads when applied, filling cracks and other spaces that are hard to get to. It’s best for blocking air but isn’t completely waterproof.

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

Loose Fill and Batt Insulation for Attics

Loose fill insulation is put in place 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.
