What Is the Best Attic Insulation?

As a Southern Utah homeowner, you deal with long, hot summers. Attic insulation is a great way to seal off your home from the heat. Like the lid of a cooler, attic insulation helps keep cold air inside for lower air conditioning bills.

Even once you decide to add more insulation to the attic, you still need to choose which type to install. Consider three of the best attic insulation types to help you decide which is right for your Washington, Utah home.

Batt Fiberglass Attic Insulation

Batt insulation is most often made from fiberglass. It comes in large blocks cut to the ideal dimensions for fitting between attic rafters and floor joints that are built to code. This makes installation a breeze, as long as you wear the proper eye, skin and lung protection. If you don’t want to worry about performing the installation yourself, a qualified professional can handle the job at a reasonable price.

Blown-in Fiberglass Attic Insulation

Fiberglass also comes in the form of blown-in insulation. This means the material comes in very small chunks and must be blown into place with a special machine resembling a fire hose. Blow-in insulation is preferred over batts if you have an attic with oddly spaced joists. Hiring a professional to blow the material evenly across the floor prevents you from having to cut batts by hand to fix awkward spaces.

Loose-Fill Cellulose Attic Insulation

Loose-fill, or blown-in, insulation also comes in cellulose. This material offers about the same insulating value as fiberglass, or about R-3 to R-4 per inch. Made primarily from recycled newspaper, cellulose is a more renewable choice than fiberglass. Don’t worry – the insulation is treated with flame retardant to prevent spreading a fire if one starts in your home.

Install the Best Attic Insulation in Your Utah Home

No matter which type of attic insulation you choose, you can expect to see your energy bills decline year round, as long as the insulation is installed correctly. A more consistent indoor temperature makes your home more comfortable and helps your heating and cooling equipment last longer. As an added bonus, additional insulation also reduces noise from the exterior and helps protect against air and moisture infiltration for a healthier indoor environment.
