Get The Most Out Of Your Insulation.

With these tips, you’ll be ready to roll.

  • R-value is one of the most important considerations when choosing insulation. R-value is a measure of thermal resistance. The higher the number, the better the insulation.
  • Use high R-value insulation such as spray foam on exterior walls. On cathedral ceilings, consider rigid foam to get more insulation with less thickness.
  • Avoid fire hazards. Be careful when placing insulation next to a recessed light fixture—unless it is insulation contact (IC) rated—to avoid a fire hazard.
  • Think “safety first.” Always wear protective gear when installing home insulation, and follow the manufacturer’s instructions to avoid safety hazards.
  • Adding attic insulation is one of the most cost-effective ways to make your home more comfortable.
