Insulating your Attic? Find how much insulation you’ll need and how much energy you’ll save.

Insulating Your Floor

A lot of energy can leak through the floor, so it’s important to insulate correctly. For floors, use R-19 kraft-faced insulation in rolls or batts, or maximize your energy efficiency with R-21.

Kraft- or Foil-Faced Insulation with Vapor Retarder

This type of insulation has either a foil-backed facing or kraft paper layer attached. The attached facing layer helps control the amount of moisture vapor that passes through the insulation that could collect inside ceilings, exterior walls and floors. Kraft and foil facings are combustible and have to be covered with an approved interior finish (i.e., drywall).

Rolls

Rolls are long strips of insulation rolled into bales. You measure the length you need and cut it off with a utility knife. Rolls are best for covering large open areas, like attics and floors.

Batts

Batts are pre-cut lengths of fiberglass insulation. Batts are available unfaced, or with aluminum foil or paper facing.

Measure the Area of your Floor

To determine the size of the area you are insulating, follow these steps:

  1. Measure the length of the floor joists you want to insulate. Don’t forget to measure the width of the space between the joists (this will be either 15"–16" or 23"–24"), so you’re sure which products to choose.
  2. Don’t forget to measure the width of the space between the wall studs (this will be approximately 14.5"), so you’re sure which products to choose.
  3. Multiply the number of floor joists times the length of those joists:

    Example:

    5 Joists
    × 20 ft. Long
    = 100 sq. ft. of Floor Area

The following products are recommended for use with floors:

Installation Tips

  • Caulk and seal around band joist and all other penetrations, such as plumbing, electrical lines, cable lines, and HVAC and dryer vents, to prevent air infiltration. Use continuous rolls in floors for seamless runs along the longer joist spans. When you need to cut your insulation:
    • Lay it on a board with the kraft or foil facing down.
    • Lay a straightedge over the area of insulation to be cut.
    • Press your straightedge down hard, and cut with a utility knife.
    • Use the straightedge as a guide to cut a straight line.
  • Install insulation with the vapor retarder toward the warm side of the structure. In a vented crawlspace, the warm side is usually up, closest to the floor. Never leave faced insulation exposed. The facing on kraft- and foil-faced insulation will burn and must be installed in substantial contact with a floor construction.
  • Install the insulation all the way back at the end of each joist run for complete coverage under the house. There will usually be a narrow joist space on the wall running parallel to the joist. Cut insulation to fit this space.
  • Cut insulation to fit around water pipes and cross braces. Insulate around electrical wiring and junction boxes carefully. Compressing insulation reduces its R-value, so be sure to gently fit insulation around obstacles, leaving no gaps between insulation pieces.
  • Use nylon banding or metal insulation supports to support the insulation.
