Plan J: Insulation / Weatherizing

record and note your design specs: download spec sheet

what you need to do —

  • Identify areas of the home that needs insulation.

  • Insulation is measured by its R-value, not its thickness. Insulation with a higher R-value is more efficient.

  • Required R-values may vary for walls, ceilings, attics, etc.

  • Also consider "weatherizing components" that can save energy costs:

    visit our Home Improvement Gallery for complete information on insulation and weatherizing:
