Maryland's Energy Efficiency Building Code requires home's to be insulated to R-49, which is equivalent to 13.65 inches of blown cellulose or 16.25 inches of blown fiberglass. Homes built before 2012 have less than the recommended insulation levels to maximize comfort and energy savings. The older your home, the less insulation in your attic.

What’s Wrong with My Insulation?

Many factors affect the condition and effectiveness of your home’s insulation. The most common issues we have observed include:

  • Inconsistent insulation levels

  • Compacted or deteriorated insulation

  • Excess moisture or mold

  • Rodent or insect damage

All of the above concerns should be addressed if you want to improve the comfort levels in your home and save money on your energy bills.

Types of Insulation

There are many types of insulation. Our experience at EcoMize has shown that when paired with air sealing, these two types of insulation are the most cost effective for improving comfort and energy savings:

  • Cellulose insulation

Made from plant-based materials, primarily recycled newspapers, cellulose insulation is treated to be extremely fire retardant and insect resistant.

  • Fiberglass insulation

Fiberglass insulation is a great solution for many homes due to its lightweight nature.
