Attic Insulation in Montana

Fiberglass Insulation being used to add energy efficiency to an attic in Bonner

Blowing in a blanket. Blow-in (or blown) fiberglass insulation is a good choice for attic insulation. A special machine shreds the fiberglass and then blows it through an application hose.

Upgrading attic insulation is a VERY popular energy-saving improvement in Montana. That's because more energy (and money!) is lost through the attic than through any other part of the house.

What makes matters worse is that most homes have attic insulation that's inadequate and/or poorly installed. Existing attic insulation in many homes may be as minimal as R-19.

For your house to go through a cold winter with so little insulation is like you wearing a t-shirt in a snowstorm. What your house really needs is the equivalent of a thick down-filled parka.

More specifically, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends between R-49 and R-60 of attic insulation for homes in Montana. That's at least a 16-in.-thick blanket of fiberglass insulation!

Sealing air leaks goes together with attic insulation

Baffles keep ventilation channels open. Plastic spacers are installed between rafters in the attic to maintain a vent space beneath the roof surface after new insulation is installed.

Air-sealing is a critical step because it stops conditioned interior air from leaking into the attic. Dr. Energy Saver uses a variety of materials and techniques to stop this energy-wasting air leakage.

Installing baffles ensures proper attic ventilation. Sized to fit between the rafters in the attic, plastic baffles maintain a ventilation space between the attic's soffit vents (located along the eaves) and the ridge vent. Installing baffles before adding more attic insulation helps avoid damage from ice dams and excess moisture.

Old insulation can be reused most of the time. As long as the existing insulation is not wet, moldy or overly compressed, it can usually be put back into place after the attic has been air-sealed and before new insulation is installed.
