Fiberglass batt insulation is the most common type of attic insulation, and it’s typically a good choice for homeowners, since it’s inexpensive and effective. It’s also available in rolls, which reduce the likelihood of gaps in coverage. Fiberglass insulation is usually made of recycled sand and glass, making it an environmentally friendly option as well.

Loose-fill or blown-in insulation is another option. This method involves blowing small particles of cellulose, mineral wool or fiberglass into the attic space with a special machine. This type of insulation is generally best for existing attics with minimal penetrations, such as ducts or electrical wiring. It’s also a good choice for attics with many small holes that need to be covered.

Spray foam is a highly effective attic insulation, but it’s more expensive than fiberglass or blown cellulose. It can be applied to existing attic insulation, and it can help seal air leaks around ducts, soil stacks, chimney chases, vents, wiring penetrations and pot lights. Before hiring a contractor to apply spray foam, check that they have a license to do so and that they carry worker’s compensation and liability insurance.
