Common Type of Insulation
There are some common type of insulation are available in
attic they are as follows.
• Fiberglass or mineral wool batts and rolls.
• Medium- or high-density fiberglass batts
• Loose fill cellulose, fiberglass, mineral wool or vermiculite
Standard density batts and rolls
• Batts and rolls are made of fiberglass or mineral wool
• Rolls are normally 16 to 100 feet in length.
• Batts are precut to specific lengths.
• Both fiberglass and mineral wool batts are fire and moisture
resistant. They are available with or without a vapor barrier
• Some batts are wrapped in plastic for easy handling. This
plastic has small holes, so it is not a vapor barrier.
Medium- and high-density batts
• Medium- and high-density fiberglass batts offer more
insulation value for a given thickness than standard fiberglass.
• They are often used in cathedral ceilings and sidewalls
• Loose fill insulation comes packaged in bags.
• Loose fill is either blown with a machine or poured from the
bag directly into the attic
• Blowing in insulation is faster and offers better coverage. You
can rent equipment to blow in loose fill, but most people hire
an insulation contractor.
• Loose fill is better than rolls or batts for attics with irregular
joist spacing or with many obstructions.
• Minimizing air movement in and out of a house is key to
building an energy-efficient home.
• Controlling air leakage is also critical to moisture control.
• The most common air barrier material is house wrap, which is
wrapped around the exterior of a house during construction.
• Sealing all the holes and seams between sheet goods such as
drywall, sheathing, and subflooring with durable ,tape, and
foam sealants will reduce air leakage.
• Using one of these techniques can significantly reduce air
leakage to help improve a home's energy efficiency.
Vermiculite attic insulation
• Vermiculite is a naturally occurring mineral which expands
into a very lightweight material when heated.
• Vermiculite pellets were commonly used to insulate attics
until the 1990’s.
• vermiculite was thought to be harmless, and indeed in its
pure state there are no health risks posed by vermiculite.
• f you need to do a ceiling renovation that requires insulation
to be moved or removed, hire a licensed asbestos insulation
removal company to test, and if necessary remove, the
vermiculite attic insulation
• Most building codes require roof vents to expel moisture in
winter which could deteriorate insulation or other building
• In summer, ventilation may reduce roof and ceiling
temperatures, thus saving on cooling costs and lengthening
the roof's life.
• Attic ventilation is beneficial for all climates
Attic insulation techniques
• Loose-fill or batt insulation is typically installed in an attic. For
batts with attached vapor retarders, put the backing next to
the ceiling finish.
• Although installation costs may vary, blowing loose-fill attic
• fiberglass, Rockwool or cellulose is usually less expensive than
installing batts and provides better coverage.
