The Correct Way to Install Attic Insulation


Here’s a question from our 4/27/2019 Today‚Äôs Homeowner Radio Show.

Genie from Florida asks, “We live in Florida. Since we use air conditioning instead of heat, does the attic insulation still go paper toward the ceiling? I was told by a company that makes the stuff to put it paper up because it should be paper towards heat. Please help me with the correct answer because I have to do this myself and cannot afford to make a mistake.”

We say be sure the paper side of the insulation is facing the heated or cooled part of your home.
