It might seem like insulation installation, particularly in the attic, is an easy endeavor. Just lay down some rolled insulation on top of what’s there, and you’re good to go, right? Wrong! If you do not do it correctly or use the wrong type, you could do more harm than good. There is a lot more involved, as well, so attention to detail is vital for getting the results you expect.

  • Preparation – There are a number of things to do prior to insulation installation. First of all, an energy evaluation is a good way to begin, so you can find out where you may be losing air and be certain that you really need more insulation. You’ll also need to seal every nook and cranny.
  • Education – Take the time to learn about the types of insulation and the advantages of each, so you can choose the right one for your home and your budget.
  • Ventilation – Your home’s attic must also have sufficient ventilation. If you do the insulation installation and cover the vents, you’ll end up with rot, mold, mildew, and other problems.
  • Attic Hatch – Don’t forget the attic hatch – if you don’t put proper insulation on the door or hatch, you’ve left a large area for air to escape.’
