How to Insulate Walls and Ceilings -- by Home Repair Tutor

Do you hate being cold?

It doesn't have to be that way.

In fact: it's easy to make your home feel comfy.

Today we show you how to insulate walls and ceilings. We use batt insulation from Johns Manville.

My buddy Bill just built an addition. So we were lucky to have open walls and ceilings to show you our insulation tips.

Here are 8 tips to help you get started with your insulation project:

1. Get your stud and joist dimensions
2. Choose an insulation type
3. Cut batt insulation to size
4. Make sure insulation fits tight against framing
5. Staple tabs (if present) on inside of framing
6.Tape any seams or torn kraft-faced insulation
7. Don’t block air vents with ceiling insulation
8. Use spray foam around windows (specifically for windows)

Check out the video for all the details and a sweet surprise at the end.



Feel free to share this video with your friends either via email or on Facebook



There's nothing better than helping a friend out with a DIY video that could make their project go a lot better.

How to Install Insulation Around Recessed Lighting and Other Objects - Johns Manville

A home with proper insulation is a comfortable home. The prospect of placing insulation around recessed lighting and other objects is much more intimidating than the actual process. Insulating around objects and the potential obstacles involved in this process can seem daunting, but with the right tools and procedures, you should have no problem. In this video, we’ll guide you through the process of placing insulation around recessed lighting and other areas where you’re likely to encounter obstacles like electrical wiring, plumbing and air ducts. Insulation in these areas is important. It can improve energy efficiency, help keep your pipes from freezing in the winter, and more. When you’re installing or adding insulation in your ceiling, your floor, or around recessed lighting, it’s important that you don’t actually place insulation on the pipes, electrical wiring or junction box (unless it’s IC-rated, in which case it will be clearly labeled.) Remember: it’s important to insulate around air ducts in order to keep both hot and cold air from escaping, which will greatly improve the energy efficiency of your home. This video will show you that not only is it straightforward to insulate around objects and placing insulation around recessed lighting and other potentially hard to reach areas of your home, but it’s also necessary and, in the end, not all that difficult.
