Different Styles of Attic Insulation
There are four standard kinds of insulation you can install in your attic:
- Fiberglass insulation: This kind of insulation takes glass cullet and raw materials and combines them to form fibers that feel like wool. Fiberglass is moisture and fire resistant.
- Wool insulation: While this has the same texture as fiberglass, it’s made from rock, blast furnace slag and raw materials. Wool is naturally fire retardant but may not be readily available.
- Cellulose insulation: Using paper, paperboard, stock or wood to develop cellulose fibers, this form of insulation is treated with chemicals to reduce the possibility of fire. Cellulose has the advantage of having a high R-value and is usually a more economical option.
- Spray foam insulation: This is a chemically based insulation that can be applied to the attic and wall cavities. Spray foam has many perks, such as the potential to create a more airtight home.
