Properly installed wall insulation is critical to your home's ability to stay warm in the winter or cool down in the summer. Here are some tips on how to install your wall insulation the right way.

Tip 1 - Avoid Gaps

Install your insulation so that each piece fits nicely against the next. There should be no gaps or holes.

Tip 2 - Avoid Compacting

Even though you need to avoid leaving gaps, you also need to make sure you avoid packing and stuffing the frames with so much insulation that it creates creases and overlaps.

Tip 3 - Install Long Pieces First

Forget the small stuff! Install the long pieces first. Do not worry about the little edges and corners until you have installed as many full pieces as possible.
