Insulation acts as a barrier for your home, protecting it from the outdoor temperatures. If properly installed and in good condition, it will regulate the temperatures inside your home. Sometimes the insulation in your home deteriorates over time and needs to be replaced. Here are 5 reasons you should consider insulation replacement:
- The Temperature Varies From Room to Room. If some of your rooms are colder than others, this is a sign that there is less insulation in those areas. If you need insulation replacement, you may also notice a wall or ceiling is cold to the touch.
2. Icicles Hanging From Your Roof. Hanging icicles are created when the warm air in your house escapes through your roof. Icicles signal that the insulation in your attic is not as effective as it could be. Replacing this insulation can stop you from losing that precious heat and keep your house warmer in the winter.
3. Moisture and Mold. If you notice mold or moisture in your attic, your insulation is likely damaged and should be replaced right away. New and effective insulation will discourage future moisture accumulation as well as mold.
4. Frozen Pipes. Frozen pipes in your walls can be caused by insufficient insulation. If you have a problem with a frozen pipe, we suggest replacing your insulation right away. New insulation can prevent frozen pipes that can burst and need expensive repairs.
5. High Energy Bills. If your insulation is not adequately regulating the temperature in your home, your air conditioning and heating systems will have to work harder. As either system continuously runs, it will raise your energy bills. Replacing insulation is a great way to reduce high energy bills.
