Attic insulation is the most effective way to improve the temperature in your home especially during winter. As heat flows naturally from warmer areas to cooler ones, you will need an insulator to minimize the convection effect of heat and minimize conduction. It simply means that it controls the flow of the heat to keep you warm during winter seasons as well as keep your house cool during summer seasons.

You might be wondering now what the best attic insulation type is. There are many different types of solutions for every climate and particular home needs. So, the first thing that you need to do is to identify your needs before looking for a solution.

When you have a clear idea of what exactly you want, then look for the materials used and the resistance or r-value to the heat flow. If your area has more extreme range of temperatures, you will also need a higher insulation r-value.

Start asking your local energy commission or local power company about this, as they would know best about your local settings. There are also online solutions available for those who really do not have an idea on getting their insulation resistance value so do not worry about it.

There are two common types of attic insulation and each has their own advantages and disadvantages. As opposed to batt insulation, blown in insulation uses fiberglass blankets and creates a seamless blanket of insulation in your attic.

Once the installation process is done, you will then experience a consistent r-value. In blown-in insulation, the thickness varies in the attic space. The r-value also varies depending on the attic space. One of the many advantages of this solution is its fire retardant characteristics. So better check on your local settings first, then determine the size of your attic and you will then know what type of attic insulation to install.
