Best Fiberglass Insulation for Attic Insulation
There are several types of insulation to choose from:
- Loose fill (or blown-in) insulation: Loose fill fiberglass insulation (also called blown-in insulation) is perfect for insulating your attic and open attic spaces. Blown-in fiberglass insulation creates an even blanket of thermal insulation and can be installed over existing good attic insulation.
- Batt insulation: Fiberglass insulation comes in batt form, often identified as a roll. Batt insulation must be carefully trimmed to ensure it fits properly and does its job correctly. Open attics are not often insulated fully with batt insulation, but rather it is used to insulate areas such as attic knee walls.
- Spray foam attic insulation: If you want high efficiency, spray foam is the way to go. This product is the best way to insulate attic walls and air seal attic leaks in one step. Spray foam attic insulation can be used to insulate attics in new homes or in existing homes.
