Signs You Have Insulation That Needs To Be Removed
What are some signs insulation needs to be removed?
Homeowners need to be on the lookout for signs that their attic insulation needs removal to get ahead of the problem.
Here are a few factors that might indicate your insulation should get taken out:
Insulation is highly efficient at enveloping your home to prevent air transfer from the inside and outside. However, the lightweight and fragile material of most insulation types is also susceptible to damage from weather, water, fire, and infestations. If any of these incidents were to occur, it’s necessary to remove the compromised insulation.
Insulation lasts for around 15 to 20 years on average, although various factors such as attic size, insulation quality, and installation process can detract from this projected lifespan. If your attic’s insulation is pushing this limit, it might be time for insulation removal so you can make space for updated insulation.
Another telltale sign that your attic requires insulation removal is a drop in energy efficiency. If you’re seeing an unexpected and unexplainable jump in heating or cooling costs, the insulation in your attic might be allowing too much air to escape or enter your home. One of the best ways to deal with inefficient insulation is to remove it and replace it with better insulation.
