Insulating Your Knoxville, TN Home’s Attic
As a significant source of energy loss in homes, the attic should be properly insulated. Even if yours isn’t finished, it needs to be insulated. In fact, failing to ensure you have the right amount of insulation in your attic can negatively affect your home’s overall energy efficiency.
Your material choice depends on your attic and unique situation as there is no one material right for every attic or loft insulation situation. Fiberglass batt insulation is one of the most commonly installed types of insulation and works well in many attics. Blown-in fiberglass is ideal for filling in small gaps and cracks and has excellent soundproofing abilities. Spray foam provides total coverage and helps air seal any space. Cellulose is environmentally friendly and is one of the best materials for soundproofing.

Some of the frequently asked questions we receive about attic insulation in Knoxville, TN are:
How much insulation do I need in my attic?
Heating and cooling account for about 42% of your utility bills. Without adequate insulation, your HVAC system works overtime to keep your home comfortable, and therefore your monthly bills will be higher. But upgrading your insulation can help bring down those energy costs.
The benefits of insulation are measured in R-values. High R-values offer better insulation protection. Attics should have R-values of between 49 and 60.
What type of insulation is best for my attic?
Most attics have fiberglass batts, which are very effective. But small gaps and cracks need a better fill-in, so blown-in fiberglass works well. Spray foam insulation air seals any area, including attics. The most environmentally friendly attic insulation is cellulose. Cellulose is also perfect for garages because of its soundproofing properties.
When should I replace attic insulation?
Obviously, if your insulation has water damage or mold, it needs to be replaced. Damaged insulation can compromise your and your family’s health. Damaged insulation leads to bad indoor air quality, which is especially dangerous for infants and the elderly.
Signs you need to replace your attic insulation include:
- Frozen pipes
- Higher heating/cooling bills
- Ice dams on roof/gutters during a cold snap
- Pests seeking air movement (as insulation blocks air leaks)
- Temperature fluctuations in rooms
- Water/moisture in the attic
Homeowner tax credits are another incentive to add insulation to your attic, crawl space or garage.
