How Much Insulation Is Necessary?
Home insulation products are rated using a measurement called an R-value. The R-value is defined by the insulation products resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value number is the greater resistance the product has to against heat transfer.
The amount of insulation needed in a home is determined by the region and area being insulated. In Northern Colorado the R-values required to keep a home up to code should be considered as a minimum. For loose cellulose insulation multiply the R-value of the insulation required by 3.7 to get the depth in inches needed to adequately insulate the space. For fiberglass insulation, multiply the R-value of the insulation by 3.2 to calculate the depth of insulation needed.
- Conditioned Crawl Space Insulation: R-10 to R-13
- Cold Crawl Space Insulation: R-8
- Basement Wall Insulation: R-10 to R-13
- Masonry Exterior Wall Insulation: R-10 to R-13
- Attic Insulation: A minimum of R-25
