Can you have too much insulation?

Homes need insulation, and more is generally a good thing. But there may be a theoretical point of “too much.” If a home is over-insulated and is too tightly sealed, moisture can get trapped inside. This is not to say that if you have mold in your home, too much insulation is the culprit.

Is blown in insulation better than rolls?

Blown insulation is accomplished by blowing out chunks of either fiberglass or cellulose from the hose of a blowing machine. The main benefit of blown insulation is that it is a much more consistent type of insulation. In short, there is less chance of error with blown insulation as compared to batts.

Do you need a machine for blown in insulation?

12 Answers. Since cellulose insulation is compressively packaged you cannot install it without using a blowing machine. I do not recommend trying to do this by hand. "A few bags" may not qualify you for loan of a machine, but you can certainly rent one from a big box home center or an equiment rental service.

What does it cost to insulate an attic?

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, it's recommended that attics have an R-38 to R-49, or about 12” to 15” of fiberglass or cellulose insulation. Use unfaced insulation when adding more insulation to an attic that already has some insulation, laying the rolls or batts at right angles to the floor joists.

How much insulation do I need?

The insulation in your attic should be at least 12" thick. The thicker the better. It is not uncommon to see 15" to 20" of insulation in a well insulated attic. If your attic insulation is only a few inches thick or if you can see the ceiling joists, you're wasting money on your heating and cooling bills.
