Insulation Requirements in Ohio

One of your first questions if you’re insulating your home is “How much insulation do I need?” The quick answer is it depends:

  • Spray Foam Insulation by Edwards, Mooney, and MosesAre you insulating an area that has no insulation currently, or adding to existing insulation?
  • What part of the home are you insulating? Attics, garages, and basements/crawlspaces have different insulation requirements?
  • How much insulation is currently in place?

These are just a few of the questions we’ll ask as we prepare your estimate. We can also perform an insulation inspection to get an accurate picture of your insulation needs.

Let’s get started with an estimate! Call (614) 254-5309 today or use the contact form to schedule an in-home inspection!

How Much Insulation Do Ohio Homes Need?

Insulation R-Value

R-value is an important part of insulation—it is an indication of a material’s resistance to conductive heat flow. The R-value depends on the insulation’s type/material, thickness and density. In general, the higher the R-value (thermal resistance), the greater the insulation’s effectiveness.

Although a higher R-value in general means a more effective insulator, the highest R-value possible may not necessarily be right for your project. One example of this is if the space you’re insulating already has existing levels of insulation.

Region of the country is also a factor in how much insulation you need. For example, homeowners in Columbus need insulation that reflects our cold winters and warm (but not always blistering hot) summers. Here in the Columbus area, we are in climate zone 5.

What is the Best Insulation for Ohio Homes?

We created this infographic to help Columbus homeowners understand the materials we use when insulating their homes. The graphic explains the three insulation materials we use most frequently — spray foam insulation, fiberglass batts and cellulose — and how best to use each of them.
