The attic is one of the most important places to insulate in any home. Heat naturally rises, so during a frigid Minnesota winter, a poorly insulated home could be losing significant amounts of heat into the attic.
During the summer, heat from the roof can migrate through the attic floor and into your home, making the AC unit work harder.
To minimize your energy bills and improve your comfort, consider adding more attic insulation. At Expert Insulation, we offer attic insulation services throughout Brainerd, Rochester, Little Falls and the surrounding communities.

Signs You Need Insulation in Your Southern Minnesota Attic
If your Brainerd or Rochester home is more than a few decades old, there’s a good chance there is not enough insulation in the attic, or if there is, it may be damaged, contaminated or compressed, leaving it all but ineffective.
Here are a few signs that can indicate you need more insulation in your attic:
- Your home is hard to heat or cool evenly
- Your heating and cooling costs are unusually high
- Your HVAC system runs almost constantly to maintain temperature
- There are excessive household dust or air quality problems

Types of Insulation We Install in Brainerd & Rochester, MN
When you need quality insulation for your attic, turn to our team at Expert Insulation. We offer several high-performance insulation options for attics, including:
- Spray foam: Applied as a liquid, spray foam coats the installation site, expanding to fill voids while adhering firmly to surrounding materials. Once cured, it offers excellent thermal performance and air sealing to maximize the efficiency of your home.
- Fiberglass batts: Available in batts or blankets that fit tightly between studs, rafters or floor joists, fiberglass batts offer great thermal performance at an attractive cost.
- Blown-in fiberglass: Installed with a specialty machine that blows the insulation into place, blown-in fiberglass offers good thermal performance and air sealing when installed properly. Because it only requires a small hole in each stud cavity for installation, it can be added to existing homes with minimal damage to finished surfaces.
