How much insulation do I need in my attic?

There is no precise answer, as it is dependent upon your home’s specific needs. Some homes or commercial buildings require more insulation than others for various reasons. The Toronto building code minimum is R-40, but will likely be increased to R-50 in the near future. We also recommend R-50 for rural residents, who are more likely to experience adverse weather conditions. The R-50 range will provide the most return on your investment. Higher ratings, say an R-70, cost considerably more but do not bring proportionately increased benefits in comparison to R-50. Once you reach a rating of R-40 or R-50, warm air finds other outlets in or out of your home.
