Do you need more attic insulation?
It is very easy to find out if you need more attic insulation. All you need to do is take a flashlight and a tape measure into your attic. The first thing to look for is whether or not there is insulation on the floor in the attic – if you can see the rafters, then you need insulation!
If there is insulation in the attic, take the tape measure to find out how deep it is. If your insulation is cellulose (recycled newsprint), then you should have at least 9-10 inches. If it’s fiberglass (cottony fiber in various colors), then you should have 16-17 inches of insulation.
