 The edges of attics, referred to as the ‘eaves’, rarely have enough insulation in older homes. The problem is that houses were constructed in a time when energy conservation was not a concern.

When we inspect houses, we frequently make recommendations for more insulation in the attic, but one challenging place to properly insulate on old houses is the eaves

A minimal amount of insulation at the eaves results in energy loss, which is unfortunate, but not a major concern.

The best approach in these situations is to use an insulation with a higher R-value per inch – specifically, closed-cell spray foam insulation. It’s not necessary to have the entire attic lid insulated with spray foam, but having spray-foam insulation installed at the eaves is a great way to help compensate for the lack of space at these locations.
