Attic Insulation

Even if you know that having your home insulated is important, what you may not know is that you may need to replace your insulation from time to time. Especially in hidden areas of your home, such as your attic, your insulation is susceptible to damage and settling that can leave you wondering why your home isn’t as comfortable as it used to be. Here are four signs you should replace your attic insulation in your home:

1.  Infestations – Even with proper precautions in place, it can happen to any of us – squirrels, mice and bees can barge into our home and damage our attic insulation, wreaking havoc on our comfort and peace of mind. If you’ve discovered any kind of pest infestation, it’s important to have your attic insulation replaced once the problem is resolved.

2.  High Energy Costs – If your utility bills continue to skyrocket and you aren’t sure why, your attic insulation could be the culprit. Depending on the insulation type and how old it is, it’s possible that it may have lost its effectiveness.

3.  Temperature Control – Are you constantly adjusting the thermostat, and you’ve noticed your home is draftier than before? Your attic insulation could be the problem. Replacing your insulation when your home comfort is compromised can make a big difference in turning around your temperature control capabilities.

4.  Insulation Damage – If you’ve ever been through a severe storm that puts your roof at risk, then it’s important to know that your attic insulation can also suffer from damage. Taking stock of your insulation as you make roof repairs can tell you whether you need to replace it.
