What does insulation cost? I've created these tables as an aid in predicting insulation costs when you are trying to make decisions about your building.
I wouldn't base your budget solely on these charts as costs will vary by region and installation prices are very sensitive to the degree of difficulty of the application. Think about the difference between installing in an attic with a 10 foot ceiling and installing in a 2 foot crawlspace with a dirt floor. Keep in mind also that most insulation companies have daily minimums that they must meet so these prices won't be correct for projects that are only a few hundred square feet or less.
To calculate the total cost of an insulation project use the $/board foot column. A board foot is 1 inch by 1 foot by 1 foot. The $/R-value column is the most accurate way to compare insulation types. How do I cite information on EIA's website in a bibliography? - FAQ.

Gu Tian-shu , Xie Lian-yu , Chen Ge (China Xinxing Build and Develop Company, Beijing 100039, China) The core of building energy conservation in China is to innovate the enclosure structure and the heating system.
Wall thermal insulation plays more and more important roles in building energy conservation. In the world of today, the developed countries pay great attention to energy conservation. The energy consumption in unit building area in our country is nearly 4 times as much as that in developed countries with similar climatic conditions. China is a country with deficient energy resources, hence using the energy reasonably and enhancing the utilization ratio are fundamental plans for society development.

Home > Green Building Standards and Certification Systems by Stephanie Vierra, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP BD+CSteven Winter Associates, Inc. Last updated: 10-27-2014 Introduction Buildings have extensive direct and indirect impacts on the environment. The push toward sustainable design increased in the 1990s with the creation of Building Research Establishment's Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), the first green building rating system in the U.K.
Green product standards also began to appear in the marketplace in the 1980s and increased in the 1990s.
