How much insulation do i need?  

The answer depends on a number of factors:

  • Where you live — you’ll need a higher R-value if you live in the Northeast than if you live in Southern California.

  • The age of your home (if your home is more than 10 years old, you likely need more)

  • How your home is built — for example, is it a single-level or multi-level structure? Do you have cathedral ceilings? Is there a basement or is your home built on a slab?

  • How you heat and cool your home — do you have a furnace, a central air conditioner, or a heat pump?

Recommended Levels of Insulation
NAIMA has prepared a map showing thermal recommendations based on both the U.S. Department of Energy’s recommendations and the most recent minimum International Energy Conservation Code levels. Click here for R-value recommendations for optimal energy savings and comfort.

Why Add More Insulation?

Adding more insulation above minimum requirements helps:

  • Increase energy savings

  • Provide greater noise control

  • Control moisture which helps your house and roof last longer

Savings may vary, find out why in the seller's fact sheet on R-values.
