Know the Facts About Attic Insulation
What is Attic Insulation?
Facts About R-Value That You Must Know
Take a peek in your attic. If you can see your floor joists, you most likely need more insulation. Yes! Insulation can settle and reduce the value of effectiveness dramatically. Regardless of the type of existing insulation, it should be higher than the wood beams running across the attic floor to where they can’t be seen.
What Should My R-Value Be?
Why Would My Home's R-Value Decrease?
Case in point; batted insulation. It may not cover all the areas in your attic which allows temperature variances and air seepage. Again, creating an environment for discomfort in your home due to the mixing of air. Batted insulation rolls between the joists. However, it is not flexible in getting into all of the crevices that require the necessary thermal barrier. Adding insulation to the top of your batted insulation can provide dramatic results. Preferably, blown insulation to get into the nooks and crannies that are lacking.

Signs Your Home Is Under Insulated
- Varied Temperatures Throughout the Home- You have areas in your home that are known for varied temperatures throughout the year. This is a sure sign that your attic insulation may need to be improved upon. Insulation doesn't just prevent the drafts and cool spots during the wintertime. It also helps prevent hot spots during the Atlanta summer. We especially see varied temperatures in bonus rooms above garages. Do you freeze in one room and roast in another? Added insulation can remedy fluctuations in temperatures.
- Drafts and Cool Spots- It is not normal for your home to have drafty areas. If you feel chills in certain areas of the home or notice cold spots, it is time to review your insulation. If the cool air is coming in, most certainly the heated air is also finding a way out. Check your windows and entry points for proper closure and caulking. Next step is to check your insulation. More often than not, this is the reason your home has irregular temps and you are forced to grab for a blanket to prevent the chills.
- High Energy Costs- Your heating and air system accounts for the largest energy consumption in your home. Perhaps the easiest way to see if there is energy loss is by reviewing multiple years of utility bills. Poor and settled insulation can cause warm or cool air to escape through your attic or walls. The same applies for hot air or cold winter air to circulate into your home via poorly insulated spaces. If your utility bills seem high, they most likely are due to your heating and air system working overtime to compensate for the variances in air.
- Upper Level Rooms Are Hot- A key indicator to insufficient attic insulation is your second floor temperature. If you find dramatic fluctuations in the upper levels during the summer time, often times your insulation needs to be bettered. A common misconception is that heat rises. While this is true, your heating and cooling system should level the temperatures easily. Poor attic insulation will cause your HVAC system to run continuously without a dramatic effect or reduction in temperature.
