When Is the Best Time of Year to Insulate My Home?

Insulation helps your home retain heat in the winter and keep hot air out during the summer. Increasing insulation levels is a job has the potential to pay for itself by helping to lower your heating and cooling bills. Slower heat transfer between the interior and exterior can also make you feel more comfortable.

If your mind is on increasing home efficiency, you might be wondering: is now the best time of year to insulate?

Best Time of Year to Insulate

Traditionally, fall has been praised as the ideal season to add home insulation. It’s a mild time of year perfect for home improvements in anticipation of winter and keeping heating bills low.

Once installed, the insulation will work for many seasons to come, keeping the interior more comfortable and decreasing heating and air conditioning needs.

Where to Insulate

The attic is the most logical place to add insulation to an existing home, as it is a major source of energy loss in homes.

If you find you already have some attic insulation, it could be worthwhile to add more. One foot or more of insulation spread evenly across the floor is desirable for the most energy savings, but your local insulation company will be able to determine specifics and ensure you get the right solution.

If you are planning to insulate before the summer, you should also consider adding a radiant barrier. This is a type of reflective insulation that goes on the underside of the roof. It helps reflect heat from the sun, helping the attic (and the rest of your home) stay cooler and more comfortable—and also more energy-efficient!

What Type of Insulation to Use

Fiberglass batts are often installed in attic floors and unfinished walls and ceilings. Other options include blown-in fiberglass, loose-fill cellulose and spray foam.
