How Often You Should Replace Insulation in Your Home

Insulation provides a vital barrier for your home, protecting it against unwanted air flow. It acts to help heat your home in the winter and assists with cooling your home in the summer. Unfortunately, as with all things, there are times when you will need to consider replacing insulation.

Foam Insulation

Most modern homes use a type of foam insulation that is blown into the area. Over time, foam insulation will settle, losing its fluffy quality and becoming ineffective. This can result in under insulation. Check the insulation level in your attic. It should be between 10 and 16 inches deep. If you have any doubts about your insulation levels, call and schedule an energy audit which includes a complete check of insulation levels.

Older Homes

Many homes, including older ones, have never had the insulation checked and may have the original insulation from the construction of the house. Over the past few decades, insulation materials have greatly improved. If your home is a few decades old with its original insulation, it’s time to look for improved options.

Rising Energy Costs

If you notice your heating and cooling costs are rising, replacing insulation which is inadequate may be an option. Remember, there are a number of reasons why your electric bill may be on the rise so it’s a good idea to consult a professional for the best possible resolutions. 

Water Damage

If your home has experienced a leaky roof or any type of water buildup in your attic, you need to replace the insulation immediately. Mold loves to grow in warm, wet areas. This can be hazardous for your indoor air quality. If you are unsure whether your insulation should be replaced after a leak, call a professional who can preform a thorough inspection.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
