Your Attic Insulation Questions Answered

The insulation in your attic is an important part of your home’s ability to maintain an even temperature. If your current attic insulation leaves something to be desired, whether it’s a draft you can feel, or just higher than normal heating and cooling bills, it may be time to replace the existing insulation with something more effective. Icynene spray foam insulation is a great alternative. Here are two of the most frequently asked questions, regarding using spray foam insulation in attics:

Can spray foam insulation be used on attic floors?

Yes, it absolutely can. If you currently have a vented attic and don’t wish to change it to unvented, insulating your attic floors can help prevent heated air from escaping from the main part of your home and into the attic. This can cause a “stack effect,” as well as increasing the possibility of ice dams forming during colder months.

How much does spray foam insulation cost in an attic?

This is a more complex question to answer. It will depend on how much of the attic needs to be insulated–do you only want the floors insulated, or are you looking at converting your attic into an unvented attic? The size of your attic is something to take into account as well. The best thing to do is find a licensed Icynene spray foam insulation contractor in your area, who will be able to come to your home and assess your needs.
