Insulating Your Attic

The attic is one of the most significant sources of energy loss in your home, so it’s important that it’s properly insulated. Whether it’s unfinished or used as extra living space, it offers much potential for energy savings. Warm air rises, so if you don’t have attic insulation or loft insulation, that air can escape. Not only does this minimize your home’s overall energy efficiency, but it also can affect interior comfort levels.

The Metro Home Insulation team has experience installing all types of attic insulation, from spray foam to fiberglass and cellulose. Insulating the attic, including the knee wall, can help:

  • Reduce your utility bills and maximize the energy efficiency of your home
  • Make your home more comfortable year round
  • Improve the efficiency of your HVAC systems
  • Reduce noises on different levels inside (especially useful if your attic is used as a living space)
  • Contribute to a healthier environment

Attic Insulation Guide

Insulation Climate Zones

Here in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area, we are in Zone 6. In uninsulated attic spaces, the target R-value is R49 to R60, R38 to R49 for attics with some insulation. Our team can assess your space and help you determine the right solution for your attic.

Read more about insulating your attic on the ENERGY STAR® website.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, insulation should be installed:

  • Between and over the floor joists in unfinished attics (so that the living space below is sealed off)
  • In the attic access door
  • Between knee wall studs
  • Between the studs and rafters of exterior walls and roof
  • In ceilings with cold spaces above

Loose-fill (blown-in fiberglass or cellulose) and batt insulation are typically installed in an attic. Although not as common, spray foam can also be installed in this space. If the ducts in your home are in unconditioned space, such as the attic, be sure to seal and insulate them to maximize energy efficiency.
