Attic Insulation – Simple, Affordable, & Efficient

written by on July 27, 2012

One of the easiest ways to reduce your energy bills is to properly install attic insulation. Adding insulation to an attic is simple, but requires careful preparation.

Warning: if you think you have vermiculite insulation in your attic, there’s a chance it could contain asbestos. Do NOT disturb it. Only insulation contractors certified to handle and remove asbestos should deal with vermiculite attic insulation.

Attic Insulation Types

The two types of insulation that are usually installed in an attic are Loose-fill and Batten Insulation. Loose-fill insulation is usually less expensive to install than batten insulation, however, installation costs may vary. Loose-fill insulation also usually provides better coverage when installed properly. At Avalanche Roofing & Exteriors, we typically recommend installing Owens Corning’s AttiCat Expanding Blown-in Insulation.
