Insulating Your Attic in Portland

As areas prone to energy loss, attics are good places to start when it comes to insulating your home. If your attic doesn’t have enough insulation, you can lose a lot of energy—and that can mean higher monthly utility bills!

There is no “right” type of insulation specifically for attics—different types of insulation have different advantages.

  • Loose-fill (blown-in fiberglass or cellulose) and batt insulation are typically installed in an attic.
  • Blown-in fiberglass insulation is very effective at stopping heat transfer.
  • Cellulose insulation has similar qualities to fiberglass and is environmentally friendly as well.
  • Spray foam insulation is superior at filling small cracks and holes and covering uneven spacing between floor joists and around wiring, piping and ductwork.

Installing attic or loft insulation helps:

  • Maximize energy efficiency and reduce your energy bills
  • Make your home a more comfortable space
  • Improve the efficiency of your air conditioner
  • Reduce noises on different levels inside (especially useful if your attic is used as a living space)
  • Contribute to a healthier environment inside your home


What Is the Recommended R-Value for Attic Insulation?

Insulation Climate Zones

Here in the Portland area, we are in zone 4. When there is no existing insulation, ideal R-value is R38–R60. Our team can assess your space and help you determine the right solution for your attic.

Read more about insulating your attic on the ENERGY STAR® website.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, insulation should be installed:

  • Between and over the floor joists in unfinished attics (so that the living space below is sealed off)
  • In the attic access door
  • Between knee wall studs
  • Between the studs and rafters of exterior walls and roof
  • In ceilings with cold spaces above

Loose-fill (blown-in fiberglass or cellulose) and batt insulation are typically installed in an attic. Although not as common, spray foam can also be installed in this space. If the ducts in your home are in unconditioned space, such as the attic, be sure to seal and insulate them to maximize energy efficiency.
