When deciding how much insulation your home needs, the quick answer is that it depends.
Are you insulating an area that currently has no insulation, or adding to existing insulation? What part of the home are you insulating? (Attics, garages and basements/crawl spaces have different insulation requirements.) How much insulation is currently in place?
Our insulation contractors will evaluate your home, where you need insulation and more to make sure provide an accurate quote. We can also perform an insulation inspection to get an accurate picture of your insulation needs.

We created this infographic to help Columbus homeowners understand the materials we use when insulating their homes. It explains the three insulation materials we use most frequently — spray foam insulation, fiberglass batts and cellulose — and how best to use each.
R-value is an important part of insulation — it indicates 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 generally means a more effective insulator, the highest R-value possible may not be right for your project. One example of this is if the space you’re insulating already has some amount of insulation.
Which region of the country you’re in is also a factor in how much insulation you need. Homeowners in Columbus need insulation that reflects our cold winters and warm (but not always blistering hot) summers. In the Columbus area, we’re in climate zone 5.
