Attic Insulation Services in Miami, FL
As one of the biggest sources of heat loss in homes, insulating your attic is vital in improving energy efficiency. Whether it’s unfinished or used as extra living space, the attic space holds a lot of potential for energy savings. Although it’s best to talk to home insulation professionals about the specifics of your project, it’s generally recommended to insulate knee walls and floors.
Attic insulation, also referred to as loft insulation, can help:
- Maximize energy efficiency and reduce your energy bills
- Make your home or building a more comfortable space
- Improve the efficiency of your air conditioner and furnace
- Contribute to a healthier environment

Signs Your Attic Needs Insulation
If you’re not sure whether your attic needs more insulation, it might be worth it to consider these common signs of inadequate attic insulation. If one or more of these sounds familiar, you might have a problem:
- Rooms below your attic are the most uncomfortable rooms in your house when the weather gets intense
- You have moisture or air infiltration in upstairs rooms
- Smells seem to come into your house from your dusty attic, or they pass through your attic from outside
- You notice drafts and hot spots in the upstairs rooms of your home
- You want your attic to be usable as a finished space but it’s way too hot

Attic Insulation Guide
Here in Miami, we are in Zone 2, which requires R-30 to R-60 for uninsulated attics and R-25 to R-38 for attics that already have a few inches of insulation. Our team can assess your space and help you determine the right solution for your attic.
Professional Attic Insulation Contractors in Miami, FL
Insulate Your Miami-Dade, Monroe or Broward County Attic
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, insulation should be installed:
- Between and over the floor joists in unfinished attics to seal off the living space below
- In the attic access door
- Between knee wall studs
- Between the studs and rafters of exterior walls and roof
- In ceilings with cold spaces above
Loose-fill (blown-in fiberglass) and batt insulation are typically installed in an attic. Although not as common, spray foam can also be used as attic insulation. If the ducts in your home are in unconditioned space, such as the attic, be sure to seal and insulate them to maximize energy efficiency.

Frequently Asked Questions About Attic Insulation
How much insulation do I need in my attic?
The U.S. Department of Energy includes Miami in Climate Zone 1 and thus suggests that you should add between R-30 and R-49 worth of insulation to an uninsulated attic, or add R-25 to R-30 if you already have a few inches of insulation but worry that it’s inadequate or getting old.
Different insulating materials offer different R-values, which affects the actual amount of materials needed. For example, an inch thickness of closed-cell spray foam offers between R-3 and R-7.
How can we install attic insulation over existing insulation?
Many insulation products can be installed directly over your existing attic insulation if it’s in good condition. Spray foam insulation, for example, can almost always go right over anything that already exists. Any gaps will be filled during the process, and the whole will be sealed tight when the process is complete and the foam has expanded.
Other materials, like cellulose spray, fiberglass batts or blown insulation, might also be installed over existing insulation as long as there is sufficient space for the added material.
What type of insulation is best for an attic?
It depends on how you intend to use your attic and what sort of insulation it already has. If you want to have a finished attic you can use comfortably, you’ll want something like spray foam insulation or fiberglass batts, which can be used to insulate along exterior surfaces to keep the attic at a comfortable temperature.
If you don’t need to keep your attic at a comfortable temperature, you can use spray foam or blown fiberglass along the bottom of the attic and not worry about insulating the attic itself; rather, you’ll want a barrier between your attic and the occupied rooms of your house.
When should I replace the insulation in my attic?
Insulation in your attic should be replaced if you have any sign of significant air leaking coming from the attic. In colder climates, this gets especially obvious in winter because of how snow melts from a leaking attic, but in Florida’s heat, you’ll need to look for more subtle signs:
- See how hot your ceiling feels in rooms adjacent to your attic
- Take note of hot drafts on the top floor of your home
- Visually inspect to see if there are any obvious gaps or flaws in your insulation if it’s visible.
Water damage is less subtle and requires a full replacement, of course — no repairs or covering up moldy insulation!
