Types of Attic Insulation

There are several kinds of attic insulation, including fiberglass batt insulation, blown-in fiberglass insulation, blown-in cellulose insulation, and spray foam insulation. At Dr. Energy Saver Of Connecticut, we offer blown-in cellulose insulation and rigid foam insulation for your attic.

Blown-in cellulose insulation is made from paper fibers and can deter pests and increase heat resistance. More airtight than batts and rolls, blown-in cellulose can enter tiny nooks and crannies in your attic where heat and cool air typically escape. This quality makes it more energy efficient than alternative solutions.

Rigid foam insulation is a durable and effective insulation material. Once rigid foam is installed, it won't shift or blow away. Not only that, but rigid foam is resistant to pests and water. Its continuous insulation, ability to address thermal bridging, and enhanced moisture control make it a superior option.

Types of Insulation

There are plenty of insulation options on the market, each with their advantages and disadvantages.

  1. Fiberglass Batt Insulation is made of fine fibers of glass and is generally pink or yellow. While fiberglass is readily available, inexpensive, and easy to install, it can become ruined by moisture, has a low R-Value per inch, and can support mold and mildew growth.
  2. Closed-Cell Spray Foam Insulation forms an expanding foam when sprayed. Closed-cell spray foam creates a vapor barrier as it's applied. It can be installed quickly, has a high R-Value per inch, can be used around obstacles, and isn't damaged by moisture. However, it is expensive, permanent, difficult to clean up, and its final thickness is often uneven and inconsistent.
  3. Open-Cell Spray Foam Insulation also forms an expanding foam as it's sprayed, but does not seal out moisture like closed-cell spray foam. While it can be installed quickly and can be used around obstacles, it is expensive, does not create a vapor barrier, cannot be easily removed, has a low R-Value per inch, requires messy cleanup, and its final thickness is often uneven.
  4. Rigid Foam Insulation is made up of rigid foam panels that are closed-cell and installed on the walls of a crawl space. Rigid foam insulation has a high R-Value per inch, is waterproof, costs less than alternatives, creates a vapor barrier, and does not require messy installation. However, it is the most difficult type of insulation to install around obstacles and cannot expand to fill voids.
  5. Blown-In Cellulose Insulation is eco-friendly, relatively inexpensive compared to alternatives, and can conform around virtually any shape. On the other hand, it can attract moisture and packs down easier, leaving gaps.

At Dr. Energy Saver Of Connecticut, we install blown-in insulation, cellulose, rigid foam board insulation, and spray foam insulation. Allow our team to determine the best kind of insulation for your home!

Can You Insulate a Home Yourself?

In short, you can insulate your home on your own. However, insulation can be messy, lengthy, and even dangerous if there's mold in your crawl space or other parts of your home. It requires you to select the appropriate insulation materials, remove existing insulation, dry out the entire area, seal air leaks, install a vapor barrier, and then, finally, you can install the insulation.

When it comes to DIYing your insulation, too much can go wrong. For example, if you fail to remove the old insulation, your space will continue to have mold and mildew, impacting your home's air quality.

When you partner with an expert like Dr. Energy Saver Of Connecticut for your home insulation project, you can rest assured knowing our team will select the most appropriate solution for your home. With years of experience in the industry, we have the tools, expertise, and determination to complete your insulation installation quickly and seamlessly. Let our team increase your home's energy efficiency and reduce energy costs!

Before and After Blowing Cellulose Insulation in Middletown, CT

Attic Insulation in Middletown, CT

This Middletown, CT attic had several air leaks and was poorly insulated. This was causing uneven temperatures and severe drafts in the rest of the home. The large space had several thermal bridges radiating in harsh exterior temperatures through the exposed walls and floors of the attic, due to its complicated construction. The leaky walls were allowing conditioned air in the house to leave, leading to costly heating and cooling costs. Wanting to and improve the comfort of his home and lower the cost of his fuel and electricity bills, the homeowner did some online research and decided to schedule an appointment with the experts at Dr. Energy Saver of CT.

Home energy specialist Chris Grosso arrived to inspect the home. Chris quickly identified the problems in the attic. He shared his findings with the homeowner, and together, they discussed some possible solutions and found the best fit for the homeowner. 

The above photos show the product of work done in October. In this first visit from Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut, foreman Ken Hartsburg removed all the existing, poorly performing, fiberglass batts insulation and installed closed cell spray foam and a few panels of SilverGlo for additional insulation. The homeowner noticed improved conditions in their home immediately… but our job was not finished.

A month later the homeowner decided to have Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut return to install 48 inches of blown cellulose with an R-20 catwalk with retention walls so the homeowner could continue storing items in the space. Their work also included densely packing the knee wall area in the above photo with blown cellulose.   During this second round of improvements, foreman Johnny Lopez realized the Dr. Energy Saver David Lewis Hatch Cover did not fit the entrance to the attic, so the workers constructed one by hand using SilverGlo to insure a perfectly insulated fit.

When the team was done, the attic had been transformed from a dusty, drafty attic into a well-sealed and insulated area. The homeowner was more than satisfied with the results, excited that this project had provided him with a more energy efficient home, as well as some valuable storage space, all in one. He was glad he called for additional work to be done on his attic.
