During winter, your family spends more time at home to keep warm. Your home’s comfort levels, however, may be compromised due to damaged or old insulation. Many factors contribute to your insulation material’s deterioration, including critter infestation or leaks. To address this problem, WMGB Home Improvement discusses when to install new home insulation in today’s post.
The constant change of indoor temperatures can be a sign of poor insulation. For instance, attic insulation detached from its original position will allow cold air or heat into your home. This pushes the HVAC system to work twice as hard to regulate your indoor temperature. In some cases, adding extra batting can rectify the problem. In a worst-case scenario, however, your insulation will require replacement.
WMGB Home Improvement installs blown-in insulation to help maintain a comfortable indoor atmosphere. This type of insulation can be made of cellulose and fiberglass. These materials both have about the same R-value, which can help keep your home cozy.
You probably don’t notice it, but outdoor air has a way of sneaking into your home. Inadequate or damaged insulation can also undermine your home’s energy efficiency. This can cause a sharp increase in your heating and cooling bills. Address these problems by getting in touch with your insulation contractor.
Due to a poor insulation job, drafts can infiltrate the house. These then enter your home in areas where there’s not enough blockage between the outside and inside air. It’s a good time to check your attic space when you notice drafts even after closing the doors and windows.
