Wall insulation does more than keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. While it most certainly helps reduce your heating and cooling bills, it also works as a sound dampener that can eliminate outside noise or noise from other rooms. Additionally, it helps reduce condensation on your walls and can effectively inhibit mold and mildew growth.
The walls are one of the biggest sources of air leaks inside homes and buildings, so insulating them is essential for maximized year-round energy efficiency and comfort. In general, it’s recommended to insulate both interior and exterior walls.
Installing wall insulation can help:
Different materials can be installed, including blown-in/loose-fill, batts and spray foam. For existing homes (retrofit projects), blown-in insulation should be used. The dense-pack installation technique can help protect against air leaks and doesn’t disturb the home’s finished areas too much. For remodeling jobs where wall cavities will be open, consider a two-part spray foam. Materials often used in unfinished walls include blanket insulation, rigid foam, concrete block insulation and structural insulated panels.
Insulation should be installed in:
According to ENERGYsmart Library, 2×4 walls can hold R-13 or R-15 batt insulation; R-19 or R-21 products can be installed in 2×6 walls.

It’s perfectly acceptable to use either fiberglass batts or spray foam insulation in new construction. However, it is better to use blown-in insulation when you are renovating or retrofitting an existing home.
Your insulation must have a sufficient R-value. R-value is the measure of thermal protection the insulation provides your home. In Tulsa, we are in Zone 3, which means you will want to have between R-38 to R-60 in your attic, R-30 to R-38 in any rooms with a cathedral ceiling, R-13 to R-15 in any wall cavities and R-25 in the floors.
Insulating your walls can help prevent hot and cold spots from forming. However, the primary reason most homeowners insulate their walls is that it significantly reduces noise.
Can’t I just add as much insulation as will fit within the wall? The answer is no because the value of insulation is not in the material or how much you have; it is the small air pockets within the insulating material. If the insulation is compacted, it won’t provide sufficient protection. Further, adding too much insulation can trap moisture, which can facilitate mold and mildew growth. This is why it is important to never compact insulation.
Absolutely! Spray foam insulation is ideal for this purpose. Our insulation technicians can help you determine which type of insulation is best for each wall in your home. This means you may have several different types of insulation in different areas.
