Benefits of Attic Insulation for Charleston Homes
If your attic isn’t effectively insulated, there’s a good chance it’s the single greatest source of heat loss, moisture infiltration and air pollution in your home.
Whether you want a finished attic insulated against the elements so it’s comfortable year-round, or an unfinished storage area that doesn’t need to be climate-controlled, you need insulation to keep the rest of your home from being affected by the temperature of your attic.
Considering the importance of attic insulation to your overall home insulation profile, including easily overlooked aspects such as knee walls, there are many notable benefits to proper attic insulation or re-insulation, including:
- A significant reduction in energy bills
- More comfortable rooms adjacent to the attic
- More consistent temperatures across your home or property
- Improved air quality throughout your home or property

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best insulation for an attic in Charleston?
Every attic insulation project is different, so we always consider all of our options when trying to meet a client’s expectations. That said, there are several forms of attic insulation that are most commonly used.
Fiberglass insulation in its many forms remains a mainstay of attic insulation. Batt or loose-fill fiberglass can significantly reduce your energy bills without requiring a huge investment in materials or labor.
For some insulation projects, spray foam insulation makes the most sense. This form of insulation is applied as a wet spray before expanding into a dense, highly insulative foam barrier.
How much insulating does my attic need?
According to the standards set by the Department of Energy, coastal South Carolina falls into climate zone 2. This means that for an attic with no insulation, you should be adding between R-30 and R-60 worth of attic insulation. For homes with existing but inadequate insulation, you’ll want to add between R-25 and R-38 worth of new insulation atop the old.
