Where To Insulate in a Home

At Pacific Partners Insulation North, we understand that keeping your home comfortable and energy-efficient throughout the year is ideal. But where do you start when it comes to deciding where to install insulation? Keep reading to learn more about the best areas in the home to insulate.

Where You Need Insulation

On a general level, insulation should be installed in all areas of your home, starting with your:

Attic Insulation

The attic is one of the best places to insulate in your home because it can be a huge source of energy loss. Knee walls (vertical walls with attic space behind them) and floors need to be insulated. The ceiling should also be insulated with foil, which helps your roof reflect, rather than absorb, heat from the sun. This keeps your home a lot cooler and more comfortable.

Basement Insulation

Don’t overlook the foundation of your home when it comes to insulation installation. Insulating the basement can save you a lot of money annually—and insulating the walls can help your home stay more comfortable year round. For sound control purposes, you can insulate the basement ceiling.

Crawl Space Insulation

If your home has any crawl spaces, it’s important that you insulate them. Crawl space insulation can help reduce air leaks, control moisture problems and prevent issues like frozen pipes, soil vapor intrusion and more. The walls should be insulated in unventilated crawl spaces. For ventilated crawl spaces, insulating the subflooring and floor joists is more important. When insulating a crawl space (ventilated or not), moisture control is vital—air sealing is required.

Wall Insulation

Both interior and exterior walls should be insulated (as a professional insulation company will tell you). Behind your interior walls, there are wires, pipes and ductwork. It may be recommended to insulate around these too. In fact, ducts are almost always insulated.
