Installing Insulation in Your Indianapolis Attic

Attic Insulation

The attic typically needs both radiant barrier and blown-in insulation (either loose-fill cellulose or a fiberglass blanket system). A type of foil insulation, a radiant barrier is installed on the underside of your attic. It keeps your home more energy-efficient—and comfortable—by helping your roof reflect, rather than absorb, heat from the sun. Radiant barrier insulation is particularly useful for homes with asphalt roofing, air ducts in the attic, or little to no shading from trees.

Radiant barrier, however, isn’t the only type of insulation that should be installed in attics. Installing cellulose and/or fiberglass insulation along with a radiant barrier is the most cost-effective attic insulation plan. Generally, the attic flooring, knee walls, etc. need to be insulated, but talk to insulation professionals about your specific situation.

Benefits of Insulating the Attic

Attic insulation does more than just lower your energy bills. The right amount of radiant barrier and blown-in (fiberglass, cellulose, or both) installed in your attic can:

  • Make your home more comfortable year-round
  • Reduce outside noises and noises between different levels inside the house
  • Improve the overall efficiency of your air conditioner
  • Raise the market value of your home
  • Promote a healthier environment (decreased energy consumption reduces carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions, and certain types of insulation are eco-friendly!)

Do You Need More Attic Insulation?

The average homeowner knows next to nothing about insulation—many homeowners don’t even know they need more insulation! Fortunately, there are some signs that indicate you may need more attic insulation:

  • Higher than normal energy bills
  • Drafty rooms
  • Ice dams on the roof (in the winter)
  • Snow melting off the roof (in the winter)
  • AC that is running more than usual (in the summer)

A quick trick: Not sure if you need more attic insulation? Take a peek up into your attic. If the insulation is below or level with the floor joists (the wooden beams you see running across the floor), you probably need to add more insulation.
