Best Attic Insulation for Your Austin, TX Area Home

With Thanksgiving next week, there’s probably little else on your mind—but after that, there’s a whole month until the New Year starts! Why not use that time to think about ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency? We have found insulation installation is a great, long-term solution.

As a major source of energy loss, the attic is an important place to insulate. But which type of insulation should be installed? There’s no universal answer that fits all situations—it depends on a couple things, such as where you live and the type of attic you have.

What Is the Best Insulation for the Attic?

The biggest factor that will determine which type of insulation you need for the attic is the climate you live in. But in general, there are two types of insulation that are typically installed in attics.


Thermal insulation, like fiberglass, is often installed in the attic to help maximize energy efficiency and keep your home more comfortable all year long. An insulation professional will be able to tell you how much insulation you need and where it should be installed.

Radiant Barrier

Here in the Austin, Texas area, as you know, it doesn’t get too cold. In warm climates like ours, it can be more cost-effective to install a radiant barrier in combination with thermal insulation. Radiant barriers are installed in the attic ceiling, right under the roofline, to help your roof reflect (rather than absorb) heat from the sun. This helps your keep your home cooler and more comfortable (and more energy-efficient). Although most homes in our area can benefit from a radiant barrier, this type of insulation is particularly helpful for homes with:

  • Little or no shading from trees
  • Asphalt roofing (which more easily absorbs heat from the sun)
  • Air ducts in the attic
