Step 1: Determine How Much R-value is Needed
The R-value measures the insulation’s resistance to heat flow, indicating its effectiveness. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation’s thermal resistance. R-value is calculated based on the type, thickness, and density of the insulation material. To determine the desired R-value for your attic, consult the guidelines provided by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and local building codes.
Step 2: Remove Existing Insulation or Add Insulation
In some cases, it may be necessary to remove existing insulation before adding more. This applies if the insulation is damaged, wet, moldy, or infested with pests. Removing compromised insulation ensures a clean and effective insulation layer.
