Why Is Attic Insulation So Important?

We have helped hundreds of Columbus neighbors enjoy a more comfortable, more energy efficient home. 

If you’re like many homeowners, you don’t think much about attic insulation. The truth is that attic insulation plays a huge role in your home’s energy efficiency and comfort. Every month you pay a gas, oil or electric bill. Where does the energy that you pay for go? Surprisingly much of it is lost. According to the National Society of Heating and Ventilation Engineers, 44% of energy loss occurs through walls and ceilings. If your attic isn’t properly insulated, not only will you have higher energy bills, you will lose more heat through your roof, which can lead to moisture issues and an increased risk for ice dams.

What is an Ice Dam?

Ice dams form when an uninsulated (or poorly insulated) attic warms the underside of the roof deck. Snow or ice on the exterior surface melts and runs off, only to refreeze when it reaches the roof’s exposed edge. This can create a solid wall of ice that blocks additional flow. Water can then back up under your roof shingles and into your home, which can result in expensive damage. But a properly insulated and ventilated attic means your roof stays cooler, which helps to slow melting and prevent the formation of ice dams.


One way to reduce energy loss is by properly insulating your attic. Bone Dry Roofing can help with highly efficient, highly effective insulation solutions that work to stop energy loss and keep you more comfortable while reducing your monthly energy expenditures. Our industry-leading insulation options resist moisture and increase your home’s indoor comfort, not to mention support your roofing system to extend its life. We can inspect the quality of your insulation during a roofing estimate to determine if you need to supplement your insulation for better efficiency and comfort.

Insulation FAQ

Where is blown-in insulation the most effective?

Blown-in insulation is most effective in the attic space of a home. 80% of a home’s efficiency is directly related to what is in the attic.

Does Bone Dry install blown-in insulation in areas other than my attic or overhead crawl space?

We install blown-in insulation into wall cavities and attic spaces.

How does attic insulation help my roofing system?

Attic insulation lengthens the life of the roof by preventing warm air entering the attic. Warm air in an attic space is the perfect formula for creating condensation. A wet, condensating attic can damage decking, cause water stains on drywall, and has the potential to grow mold in the attic space.

Can you install attic insulation while you’re replacing my roof?

Installing insulation while installing a new roof is ideal. As such, we won’t need to enter the home to install, as all work can be completed from outside.

What if I already have insulation in my attic? Should I have it inspected?

90% of homes are either under insulated or insulated incorrectly per the Department of Energy. It is always a good idea to take advantage of our free insulation inspections.

What does “R” value mean?

“R” value is the industry standard to rate insulation. “R” stands for resistance to heat flow. The higher the “R” value, the greater the insulating power.

What ”R” value is recommended for residential homes?

Typical “R” values of blown-in attic insulation are 3.5 per inch with a recommendation of an R-60 in the attic space, or 20” of total insulation. The higher the “R” value, the more insulating power, but also the more insulation needed.

Do you use any special equipment?

Our insulation inspectors use high quality thermal imaging to determine the amount of insulation in the walls and attic and to inspect for potential air leaks. This allows us to see areas of your home where heat is escaping, giving us all the information needed to solve your insulation problem.

Can I expect energy savings by installing blown-in attic insulation?

Per the Department of Energy, every inch of insulation added to your home can save you approximately $100 annually on energy bills.

What kind of attic insulation does Bone Dry install?

Bone Dry Roofing installs Pro-Cat insulation from Owens Corning. This contractor grade blown-in insulation has a settling rate of less than 1%.

Do you install new insulation on top of old insulation?

It is not necessary to remove old blown-in insulation before installing new insulation. In some cases, however, if the insulation is wet or soiled (for example, if a raccoon or other pest moved into your attic), it is wise to remove the old, affected insulation.

How long does a typical attic insulation installation process take?

A typical attic insulation project ranges from 3-6 hours on site.

Can attic insulation help specifically with an isolated area of my home that is considerably colder or warmer than the rest?

A cold spot in the home is a signifier that there are areas in the attic that are significantly under insulated. By contacting Bone Dry Roofing, we can inspect your attic space to determine the best course of action for more comfortable living.
