More than 90% of American homes are under-insulated. Find out why you need proper insulation during a free in-home consultation covering:
• Benefits of loose fill/blown-in and radiant barrier
• Samples of actual products
• Insulation to fit your budget
Prior to your appointment, think about how long you plan to stay in your home, monthly energy costs, temperature consistency, your budget and questions about energy efficiency. If possible, include the household members who will help with the home insulation decision.
The right insulation can make a big difference in your
energy bills. The combination of a radiant barrier and loose
fill insulation is especially effective. Some studies show radiant
barriers can lower cooling costs between 5% - 10% in warm,
sunny climates. When added to properly installed blown-in
insulation, the savings can really add up.

Myth: Insulating the ceiling forces more heat to leak out of windows.
Truth: Adding insulation to one part of a home won't increase the "pressure" on heat losses through other parts, but poorly insulated areas will continue to be major sources of heat/cooling loss.
Myth: Stuffing thicker insulation into a smaller space increases its R-value.
Truth: Fiberglass insulation works like trapped air pockets. Compressing it decreases the amount of air trapped and reduces its R-value.
Myth: Mold likes fiberglass.
Truth: Fiberglass doesn’t hold water very well unless it is soaked and it does not provide food for biological growth. Dirty fiberglass happens when it captures dirt as air flows through it, not because of mold.
The Home Depot offers three types of quality insulation:
Loosefill blown-in insulation is installed by trained and certified professionals.
• Does not absorb moisture
• Resists mold
• Does not settle or deteriorate
• Is noncombustible and noncorrosive
• Maintains insulating power over time
Spray radiant barrier* is applied in a thin, even coat to the underside of your roof deck and gable ends.
• Reduces radiant heat transfer by up to 81%
• Is a lower-cost option for cutting radiant heat entering your attic
• Is environmentally friendly and has very low odor
Foil radiant barrier reflects radiant heat to reduce heat transfer from your roof deck into your home.
• Reduces summer attic temperatures up to 30 degrees
• Reflects heat out in the summer and back into the living space in winter
• Lessens the burden on HVAC units
Installing insulation is a fast, economical way to lower your energy bills. If your house insulation is low R-value, old, compressed or nonexistent, R-19 insulation is a good baseline improvement. R-19 (resistance to heat) provides basic protection from outside heat loss or gain and helps standard heating and cooling equipment maintain a comfortable temperature inside.
To step up your home’s energy efficiency, choose a higher R-value insulation and a spray radiant barrier* to prevent heat loss or gain, reduce heating and cooling costs and increase comfort. Because blown-in loosefill insulation doesn’t settle, it maintains the same energy-saving level over time.
R-49/60 insulation provides excellent protection from heat loss or gain for a more comfortable home and lower energy bills. R-49/60 insulation is especially effective when combined with a radiant barrier foil installed on the underside of your roof. It blocks radiant heat and keeps house insulation cooler and more efficient.
