Does My Home Have Enough Attic Insulation?

You can measure existing insulation to determine if you have enough in your attic. If it’s less than 7” deep, your San Antonio home lacks enough insulation. Depending on where you live, between 13-14″ of insulation to as much as as 16-18″ of insulation will be what’s recommended. In addition, if your home is older than 10 years, you’ll probably need more attic insulation in your San Antonio home.

Strengthening your insulation levels could positively affect your energy bills, saving you up to 20 percent.** It can provide a vapor barrier against humidity, stop air leaks, and may limit wear and tear on your HVAC system.

**Savings may vary.

Types of Attic Insulation

There are three varieties of attic insulation—spray foam, loose fill and batt.

Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation mixes liquids that expand into a foam on contact. Closed- or open-cell applications can be used in attics.

Closed-cell foam provides the most insulation. It also creates a broad barrier against air, vapor and water.

Open-cell foam expands when applied, filling cracks and other inaccessible spaces. It’s best for obstructing air but isn’t completely waterproof.

Both types of spray foam insulation may even help block noise.

Loose Fill and Batt Insulation for Attics

Loose fill insulation is installed using specialized machinery, while batt insulation is rolls that can be portioned to fit. Insulating material can contain fiberglass, cellulose, mineral wool and cotton.

Insulation is rated for its resistance to heat flow. This is also called the R-value. Different levels are suggested based on where you live.
