Insulation is one of the best ways to keep warm and cold air from escaping your home. Proper insulation can improve your home’s energy efficiency, save you money on energy bills and make your home more comfortable. However, when insulation goes bad, this can create several problems all at once. Today, WMGB Home Improvement, the top choice for blown-in insulation, will discuss the signs that you need to replace your home’s insulation:
- Wet Insulation – There’s no way to salvage insulation if it becomes wet, moist or damp. You need to replace this insulation as soon as possible because it can no longer prevent energy from escaping your home. Water has now plugged the insulation’s tiny air pockets, so the insulation can no longer secure indoor temperatures. Wet insulation is also a problem because it can promote mold growth.
- Changing Interior Temperatures – As a home insulation expert, we recommend calling us for an inspection if you feel that the indoor temperatures of your home are constantly changing. Interior temperatures often fluctuate because the insulation in your attic has shifted and has allowed outside heat into your home. Fortunately, insulation replacement can easily fix this problem.
- Higher Energy Bills – Inadequate or ineffective insulation is a typical reason for high energy bills. Without proper insulation, your utility systems must work harder to maintain your desired interior temperature. This leads to increased energy consumption and higher energy bills. The expenses from these higher energy costs will add up. You can save money by calling us for an energy audit and possible insulation replacement.
