Should You Insulate Your Attic?
Although you may not go up in your attic every day, it doesn’t mean you should overlook the space when it comes to insulating your home! If you fail to install insulation in your attic, your home—particularly the second story—will be much hotter and more uncomfortable in the summer. (And you know just how hot Florida summers can get!)
The U.S. Department of Energy recommends that attic insulation in our part of the country provide an R-value (a measure of resistance to heat transfer) of at least 38. If your existing insulation is inadequate, beefing it up with fiberglass batts or blown-in cellulose is relatively inexpensive and will give you significant energy savings.
Many homes in the Orlando area are under-insulated, and the most effective place to upgrade your insulation is in the attic. The current recommendation at least R-49 insulation, and up to R-60, in the attic floor. If you need to upgrade your insulation, add batts or rolled insulation perpendicular to slow air movement. Be sure to insulate the eaves of your attic, while leaving an air space for proper ventilation, and use flashing to prevent insulation from contacting hot surfaces, such as recessed lighting.

Increase Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
Before you decide where you should place more insulation in your home, invest a little time and money stopping air leaks. Use caulk to seal leaks around door and window frames. Replace weather-stripping so moving parts of doors and windows seal tightly when they’re closed. Attics often contain chimneys, appliance flues, plumbing vents and electrical lines, which pass through the attic floor and into the living space below. These holes are typically larger than necessary, allowing conditioned air to escape into the attic, or allowing unconditioned air to seep into your home. An efficient attic begins by sealing these air leaks with caulk, expanding foam insulation, or a combination of both. For appliance flues, use flashing to create an air space and seal the flashing with high-temperature caulk. Check beneath insulation, especially if it is dirty, to find all the air leaks.
Along with sealing air leaks, your ducts should be insulated in any spaces they run through that are outside your home’s conditioned space. Uninsulated ducts in your attic or crawl space are big sources of energy losses when your air conditioner or furnace is running. Seal leaky ducts for more energy savings!
