The cost of insulation varies and is determined by factors such as:
- Climate in your area
- Type/style of home
- Age of your home
- Whether existing insulation needs to be removed
Older homes are typically more expensive to insulate because they may not be insulated to current standards. Costs vary with the different types of insulation. It is important to choose the best insulation option for the area of the home you are insulating.
- Fiberglass insulation is one of the least expensive insulation options. Fiberglass batts are easily installed in open walls, ceilings or other small space. Blown-in fiberglass insulation can be added to open attics or dense packed into closed areas like finished walls.
- Spray foam insulation insulates and seals air leaks in one application. The cost of spray foam insulation is higher than the other choices but can save you money in energy costs.
