Insulating an Attic in Hagerstown & Upper Marlboro, MD

The attic is one of the most significant sources of energy loss in your home, so it’s important that it’s properly insulated—and insulated by an insulation contractor who is highly trained and qualified to do the job properly. Whether you have an unfinished attic or you use it as extra living space, insulating an attic offers much potential for energy savings. The Accurate Insulation team installs high-quality blown-in fiberglass insulation that is ideal for attics and lofts from Guardian Building Products—Attic Guard Plus®.

Attic/loft insulation can help:

  • Reduce your utility bills and maximize the energy efficiency of your home
  • Make your home a more comfortable space with more consistent temperature throughout
  • Improve the efficiency of your heater and air conditioner, since they won’t have to work so hard to regulate your home’s temperature
  • Reduce noises on different levels inside of your home (this benefit is especially useful if your attic is used as a living space)
  • Contribute to a healthier air quality environment inside your home

Attic Insulation FAQ

How much insulation should I have in my attic?

R-38 to R-60 insulation is recommended for attics in Maryland & Washington, DC. Each type of insulation material, whether it’s fiberglass, spray foam or another option, has a different R-value per inch. Your attic would need a different thickness of insulation, depending upon the type used. Your existing insulation may count towards the total thickness, unless it needs to be removed.

Should I remove old attic insulation before adding new?

You can add new insulation on top of old insulation that is still effective/undamaged. If you’ve had a roof leak, this can wet the insulation, compact it and render it ineffective. Hidden roof leaks can also cause significant property damage, including wood rot and mold growth.

If your home is older, it may have vermiculite insulation, which contains hazardous asbestos. It’s typically best to leave this insulation undisturbed. (Homeowners should never disturb suspect insulation.) Call in our expert insulation contractors to evaluate whether your old insulation should be removed or can remain.

How long does insulation last in an attic?

When properly installed, attic insulation can last 80 to 100 years, according to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors. We recommend that Maryland & Washington, DC, homeowners also consider attic sealing for the ultimate home energy efficiency. Air sealing drastically reduces air infiltration into your attic. To ensure proper ventilation and avoid damaging moisture or condensation, the attic roof should be equipped with ridge vents at the peak and inlet soffit vents below the roof’s edge.

When should I replace my attic insulation?

Replace your insulation if you’re noticing inconsistent temperatures throughout your home. Your insulation could be damaged, or it may have settled excessively due to a shoddy installation. This means you’re likely using your HVAC system more to keep your home comfortable, which is yet another sign it’s time to have your insulation evaluated. If your energy bills are increasing, you may need insulation replacement or additional attic insulation added. Boosting energy efficiency with insulation will bring your energy bills under control.

Infestations of insects or mice can make a mess of your insulation. Wet or moist insulation should be replaced to avoid property damage. (Make sure to find the source of the moisture first, so it can be corrected. The cause might be a roof leak or a poorly vented attic.) Drafts in your attic and home living areas can also mean your current insulation is not doing its job and should be replaced.
