Having an under-insulated attic is one of the biggest energy sucking culprits in your home.

Read below for steps on how to properly insulate your attic. As always, if you need professional assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us for help with professional home insulation.
- An easy way to improve the insulation in a home is by insulating the attic floor.
- Fiberglass insulation can be unrolled and placed into floor joists. Be sure to install unfaced insulation. Faced insulation has a vapor barrier that can hold on to moisture and cause mold in the attic floor and the ceiling below.
- It’s possible to rent an insulation blower and buy cellulose insulation to blow into the floor joists. In this case, blow the insulation so that it falls higher than the floor joists to allow for settlement.
- If the attic floor is covered, add a layer of rigid foam and then add ¼” plywood on top of that.
