It’s important to the overall comfort of your home to insulate your ceiling and attic areas. In fact, failing to ensure you have the right amount of insulation can cause major energy efficiency and temperature regulation problems in your home.
It’s recommended to insulate ceilings with cold spaces above (in finished attics, with or without a dormer). If you have cathedral ceilings, properly insulating them allows ceiling temperatures to remain closer to room temperatures, helping to provide an even temperature distribution throughout the house. There should be space between the roof deck and home’s ceiling for adequate insulation and ventilation. Foil-faced batt insulation is used in many cathedral ceilings, especially in homes without attics because it provides the permeability rating often required for use in these types of spaces.
There is no “right” type of insulation specifically for ceilings. That said, in our experience, certain types of insulation have distinct characteristics. Fiberglass insulation is very effective at stopping heat transfer and works well in many areas, like ceilings and walls (as mentioned above, foil-faced batt insulation is often used in cathedral ceilings). Spray foam insulation creates a tight seal and can help protect against air leaks.
Insulating (or re-insulating) your ceilings can help:
It’s important to make sure your entire home, including your ceiling, is insulated properly. A professional home insulation company will be able to give you specifics so you can have peace of mind your home is on the right track toward becoming as energy efficient as possible.
