How to Maximize Your Home’s Insulation

Having an under-insulated attic is one of the biggest energy sucking culprits in your home. Luckily, there are several easy steps you can take to ensure your attic is properly insulated, which may save you a considerable amount on your energy bills each month. 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.


  1. An easy way to improve the insulation in a home is by insulating the attic floor.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. If the attic floor is covered, add a layer of rigid foam and then add ¼” plywood on top of that.

  1. Hello! It’s really cold at this moment and I just want to make sure my family stays warm amid this freezing climate. Thank you for suggesting that we can even include fiberglass to further strengthen our home insulation system. I’ll hire someone professional to make a proper installation some time soon.

  2. I like how you provide information on two different ways to insulate and provide information on faced vs. unfaced insulation. Have you considered adding tips on air sealing along with the installation of insulation? Air sealing should always be done prior to insulating for maximum efficiency. Also, be sure to seal floors, walls, and the attic itself, if possible. Good luck!
