Where Should I Install Insulation in My Miami Home?
One of the biggest sources of energy loss in your home is your attic. Whether it’s unfinished or used as extra living space, your attic holds a lot of potential for energy savings.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the attic should be thoroughly insulated:
- Between and over the floor joists in unfinished attics (so the living space below is sealed off)
- In access door
- Between knee wall studs
- Between the studs and rafters of exterior walls and roof
- In ceilings with cold spaces above

Wall Insulation Services
The right amount of exterior and interior wall insulation can help improve year-round energy efficiency and comfort.
All exterior walls should be insulated, including walls between living spaces and unconditioned spaces (such as garages and storage areas) and foundation walls above ground level.
If your attic is well-equipped with insulation and proper air sealing, and your home still feels uncomfortable (too cold in winter and too hot in summer), or you’re feeling drafts, there’s a good chance you need to add insulation to the exterior walls.
Installing blown-in insulation using the dense pack technique can provide significant air sealing. This type of insulation can also be added to exterior walls without much disturbance to finished areas of the home.

Crawl Space Insulation Services
Crawl spaces are a big source of energy loss in homes, and air leaks often happen through your crawl space. If your home has a crawl space, it needs to be insulated, weatherized and sealed. Crawl space sealing is recommended because insulation isn’t as effective if there are air leaks.
Professional Garage Insulation Services
Finding a trusted and efficient company to install insulation in your garage can be difficult. That’s why the experts at IBP of Miami are here to help. Our installation contractors have the expertise to know what insulation to use in your garage and how to complete the job on time, on budget and safely.
What Type of Home Insulation Do I Need?
For residential insulation projects, the IBP of Miami team installs:
- Fiberglass: Fiberglass batt insulation, which has been used to insulate homes for decades, is one of the most commonly installed types of insulation and works well in multiple areas of a home. Blown-in fiberglass helps fill small cracks and gaps in attics and walls.
- Spray foam: Spray foam insulation provides total coverage and helps protect against air leaks.
- Blown Insulation: Blown-in insulation is typically loose cellulose or fiberglass insulation. This insulation is resistant to mildew and fungus growth, so it’s ideal for wall cavities.
Insulating your home can help you save money, live more comfortably, reduce noises from outside and improve your HVAC system’s performance. Our professionals have experience insulating attics, walls, crawl spaces, garages and more, and they can help you improve your home’s energy efficiency.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best insulation type?
There is no “best” product that’s always the right choice. Which insulation you need depends on required R-values, where the insulation will be installed and whether you have existing insulation.
For example, closed-cell spray foam is excellent for filling cracks and crevices, whereas blown-in fiberglass can be the superior choice for filling interior walls.
How do I know if I need more insulation?
Do you deal with high energy costs and frequent drafts in your home, or are you looking to boost your home comfort? The best way to answer your question is to get your current insulation evaluated by an insulation contractor — this is especially true if it’s been years since your last inspection.
How much does insulation cost?
Current national averages place insulation costs at roughly $0.64–$1.19 per square foot. The price is heavily impacted by the insulation type, the quality of the materials and the contractors involved.
