How do I Insulate My Attic? A Guide from the M.Y. Insulation Team

How do I insulate my attic | MY Insulation

Your attic plays a crucial role in maintaining a comfortable indoor environment year-round. Acting as a barrier between the outdoors and your home's interior, your attic space can serve as a protector against temperature extremes. Without proper insulation, heat easily escapes during winter and infiltrates during summer, leading to temperature imbalances and increased energy consumption.  

Furthermore, attic insulation contributes significantly to moisture control within your home. By regulating moisture levels, it helps prevent issues such as condensation, mold and mildew. Left unchecked, moisture infiltration can compromise indoor air quality and even the structural integrity of your home over time. 

Large or small, empty or lived-in, your attic needs insulation to protect the carefully controlled climate of your home or property. We use high-quality spray foam insulation in attic spaces because it reaches every little hard-to-reach corner and expands to provide full, high R-value coverage. Here’s how the M.Y. Insulation team approaches attic insulation projects in Indiana and Michigan: 

Assess the Attic: Before we begin, our team will inspect your attic to determine its current insulation levels and identify any areas that may need attention. We look for gaps, leaks and signs of moisture or mold. 

Check Local Building Codes: The installation of insulation in Indiana and Michigan is normally a straightforward process, however in some cases there will need to be structural changes made to an attic space before insulation goes in. We’re well versed in local building codes and material requirements, so we’ll keep you updated whenever necessary! 

Prepare the Attic: We ask that you remove any clutter or debris from the attic space to provide a clean and accessible work area. Part of the prep process is to ensure proper ventilation and address any existing issues such as leaks or pest infestations before proceeding with insulation. 

Air Seal: Before installing insulation, it's essential to air seal the attic to prevent drafts and air leakage. Gaps, cracks and openings around plumbing pipes, electrical wires, vents, and ductwork must be air sealed using caulk, foam sealant or weatherstripping. 

Install Spray Foam Insulation: This is our favorite part! The spray foam insulation goes on in droplets and immediately expands and dries to fit the space. Careful installation ensures full coverage and maximum efficiency
