FAQs About Interior Wall Insulation
Does wall insulation “go bad”?
Wall insulation doesn’t go bad, but it can lose effectiveness over time. If you have fiberglass batts, these can shift and fall. Similarly, blown-in insulation can settle and become compacted. It’s best to have your insulation inspected every five to 10 years to ensure it’s still providing the appropriate level of protection.
What is the best wall insulation?
There are many types of insulation available for wall spaces. Rigid foam, sheep’s wool, blown-in, spray foam and fiberglass batts are the most common forms of wall insulation in the U.S.
Should you insulate interior walls?
The thermal benefits of insulating interior walls are minimal. However, it can provide considerable sound barriers that can make it easier to work, sleep, rest and relax.
What is R-value?
R-value is a measure of the insulating material’s ability to resist conductive heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the resistance, thus the greater the thermal protection.
Can you have too much wall insulation?
Yes, it’s possible to over-insulate your home. When this happens, you can create an uncomfortable environment. Too much insulation creates conditions that allow moisture to get trapped between layers of insulation. This can negatively affect insulating properties and your indoor air quality.
What are the benefits of proper wall insulation?
Proper wall insulation offers many benefits, including:
- Improved comfort of your family
- Reliable energy savings
- Superior protection of your property
Can I use spray foam insulation in wall cavities?
Absolutely! Spray foam insulation is ideal for use in wall cavities. As the foam expands, it fills in gaps and cracks and seals air leaks. The result is a solid layer of protection against outdoor elements.
What additional steps will improve the thermal protection around my home?
In addition to insulating attics and crawl spaces, it’s advisable to check weather stripping around windows, doors and skylights. You should also make sure any air leaks around vents, masonry, lights and other fixtures are properly sealed.
