Where to Insulate In Your Home

If you need to install more insulation in your home in the northwestern Oregon area, Installed Building Products Portland can help. In our experience, insulating your home is one of the best ways to maximize its year-round energy efficiency and comfort.

Recognizing that you need more home insulation is a good first step, but the next thing to consider is where you need to insulate.

There are several areas in your home where it’s recommended to install insulation, including:

  • The walls
  • The attic
  • Any crawl spaces your home has

Areas to Insulate

When it comes to the areas of your home you need to insulate, it’s best to consult a professional insulation company. They’ll also be able to tell you how much insulation you need and the best types of insulation to install.

Walls

Both the interior and exterior walls of your home should be insulated for the most energy savings. Behind your interior walls, it may be recommended to insulate ductwork and around pipes and wiring.

Types of insulation typically used include:

  • Spray foam
  • Fiberglass
  • Cellulose

Attics

In general, knee walls (vertical walls with attic space behind them) should be insulated, as they leak easily and can compromise the energy efficiency of your home. Also be sure to insulate the floors. Installing insulation is particularly important if your attic is a finished living space, like a bedroom.

Types of insulation typically used include:

  • Fiberglass
  • Cellulose

Crawl Spaces

Crawl space insulation is ideal for helping reduce air leakage and moisture problems and keeping your home a lot more comfortable. Unventilated crawl space walls should be insulated. For ventilated crawl spaces, the subflooring and the floor joists are more important.

Types of insulation typically used include:

  • Spray foam
  • Fiberglass
  • Cellulose
