How To Measure Your Attic's Insulation

Feb 7

Naturally, not all homeowners are experts at measuring, especially when it involves your entire house. It may seem intimidating; however, if you follow these instructions, you'll be assured of a reliable evaluation of your house in no time.


It is essential to determine the measurements of your home before making plans for the insulation installation. This will allow you to determine the correct amount of insulation you require and provide a precise estimate of your rebate.



When measuring, be sure to measure all measurements in inches (length and breadth). All measurements you take must be converted to square feet from square inches. Divide the square-inch number by 144 to calculate square feet. A measuring tape, calculator, and potentially ladders or steps will all be required.




Safety clothing and equipment must be used while working with insulation. Any safety restrictions should be discussed with the manufacturer or the insulation company. If you're in a space that may contain hazardous substances such as lead or asbestos, it's essential to be aware of the precautions required and, if needed, make use of the right service contractors.


Learn to calculate the dimensions for your home by following the steps below.




Measure your house from the outside.

Before measuring the first wall, take a walk around the outside of your house to feel its form. Begin measuring from the corner of your home. Connect the measuring tape at that corner and continue to measure each wall.

Remember that attic space in the house may differ. Insulation levels for areas like extensions to the home can differ. Split and conquer these areas when necessary before measuring.

Multiply the width and length of each rectangle to calculate the area.

144 = total square feet (Area A + Area B + Area C)




Find the outside of your home.

From the floor to the ceiling, measure the ceiling height of your walls. Measure from the floor to the ceiling of the top story in the case of the luxury of a multi-story home.

Measurements should be taken for all exterior doors and windows.

In addition, add the space of doors, windows, and non-insulated walls.

144 = Total Square Feet (outside perimeter width, height, window, door space, and any not insulated walls).

From the floor to the bottom of the subfloor. Measure the length and perimeter of the walls on the inside.

Every window on the outside should be measured in length and width.

Take away the windows and doors and walls that you will not be isolating.

The total square feet is 144. [(interior perimeter height) (window and door space plus any walls or areas that are not insulated)*


A professional will measure the quantity of insulation you require to determine the price. This includes ceiling height and any cavity or niche that may be present in your walls outside of your home in areas where it's difficult to fit large rolls of insulation foam without affecting other things around it, like plumbing, ventilation systems, etc. This could cause issues that aren't anticipated down the road when installing more complex applications like attics over cabins/manufacturing plants due to their inability to provide access points above ground level.
