Recommended Levels of Attic Insulation

Insulation levels are specified by R-Value. R-Value is a measure of insulation’s ability to resist heat traveling through it. The higher the R-Value the better the thermal performance of the insulation. The table below shows what levels of insulation are cost-effective for different climates and locations in the home.

The Tri-state Area is in Area 4, where the recommended attic insulation level is R38-R60
