Still on the fence about how to help maximize your home’s energy efficiency? In our experience, installing insulation is a good solution. If you need to install more insulation in your home in the Austin, Texas area, Hinkle Insulation & Drywall has you covered. Keep reading to learn more about where to insulate.

Where to Insulate

The main areas in your home to insulate are the walls and the attic.

It’s best to talk to insulation professionals. They’ll also be able to tell you how much insulation you need and the best types of insulation to install, but in general, you should insulate:


Both the interior and exterior walls of your home should be insulated. Behind your interior walls, it may be recommended to insulate ductwork and around pipes and wiring.

Types of insulation typically used include:

  • Spray foam (for new construction projects)
  • Fiberglass
  • Cellulose


In general, knee walls should be insulated, as they leak easily and can compromise the energy efficiency of your home. Floors may also need to be insulated. Installing insulation is particularly important if your attic is a finished living space, like a bedroom.

Types of insulation typically used include:

  • Fiberglass
  • Cellulose

Here in Texas, most homes don’t have crawl spaces. But generally, the lower levels of homes—like basements and crawl spaces—should also be insulated. Essentially, it’s important to insulate everywhere in your home to ensure the highest energy efficiency and comfort, all year long!
