How to Tell If You Need More Attic Insulation

Any one of the following conditions can be an indicator of inadequate insulation in your attic: 

  • Heading and cooling bills are high
  • Rooms in the house feed drafty or uncomfortably warm
  • Furnace of air conditioner runs frequently
  • Outside noise is audible inside the house
  • Snow melts quickly off the roof
  • Icicles and ice occur on the roof

The best way to determine if you need additional insulation is to measure the depth of insulation currently in your attic. If there is less than R-49 (19 inches of blown fiberglass, or 12-13 inches of blown in cellulose) you could benefit by adding more insulation to your attic. 

Instead of adjusting your thermostat to save money, add Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation to your home.
