It’s best to learn about the benefits of insulation and the different types of insulation available before beginning your project. Below, we have compiled a list of answers to frequently asked insulation questions. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, contact us! We are happy to help.


What is insulation and how does it work?

Insulation is a material that stops the transfer of heat and helps increase the energy efficiency of your home. In the summer, it stops warm air from leaking in, and during the winter, it helps heat stay in your home rather than escaping out. How insulation stops heat depends on the type / material.

What are the different types of insulation I can use?

There are many different types of insulation available:

  • Fiberglass (loose-fill or blanket / batts and rolls)
  • Cellulose
  • Spray foam
  • Radiant barrier

How much insulation do I need to install?

A few factors determine how much insulation you need to install, including:

  • Where you live
  • How old your home is
  • Area(s) of your home you need to insulate
  • And more

Where should I insulate my home?

It’s best to talk to a professional insulation contractor for your specific situation, but in general, your whole house should be insulated:

  • Attic
  • Basement
  • Any crawl spaces in your home
  • Interior and exterior walls
  • And more

What is R-value?

If you’ve ever talked to an insulation contractor, you’ve undoubtedly heard the term “R-value.” Basically, the R-value of a certain type of insulation refers to how effective it is at stopping heat transfer! The R-value depends on the material, thickness, and density of the insulation, and of course, installation (improperly installed insulation is almost like having no insulation at all!).
