Signs Your Home Needs New Insulation
Insulation plays a key role in helping you maintain a comfortable and secure home. Insulation enhances your home’s energy efficiency, reduces noise pollution, and regulate your home’s air quality. However, there are several signs that indicate you may be in need of new insulation. By keeping an eye out for these signs, you’ll be able to enhance your home’s overall comfort.
When you’re in need of new insulation, contact a professional contracting company such as Haggerty Windows & Siding for fast and efficient insulation services.
Excessive Moisture in the Attic
Proper insulation should regulate your attic’s moisture levels. If you’re noticing your attic has accumulated excess moisture throughout the last few months, you may be in need of new insulation. You may also notice excessive moisture levels during the summer months when your home feels especially humid. Contact a professional insulation contractor as soon as you notice these issues arise.
Skyrocketing Energy Bills
If your HVAC system and windows are in tip-top condition but your energy bills still seem to increase every month, your insulation may be past its life span. Weakened and worn-down insulation allows air leaks, which can cause your HVAC system to work harder to maintain a certain temperature. This often results in increased energy bills. If you want to start saving money on these bills every month, consider installing replacement insulation.
Drafty or Hot Rooms
Strong insulation should effectively maintain your home’s temperature. If you’re experiencing drafty rooms during the cold Iowa winters, it may be a result of poor insulation in your home. On the flip side, if your HVAC system isn’t able to keep your home cool during the summer, your insulation may be at fault. Schedule a professional insulation inspection as soon as possible.
Oftentimes, in order to get into your home, mice and other pests must first go through your home’s insulation. If you’re noticing mice droppings around your home, it may indicate that pests have infiltrated your home’s insulation. Once pests damage the insulation, the rest of your home’s foundation is at risk of more severe forms of damage. To save your home from enduring greater damage, schedule a professional insulation specialist to take a look at your home.
Increased Noise Pollution from Outside
If you’re noticing outside noises making their way into your home more than usual, your insulation may be to blame. Worn down insulation isn’t able to keep outside noises out of your home as efficiently as newer materials.
If your home is older than 25 years old, it’s likely that your insulation is past its useful life. Worn down insulation can make your home drafty and unstable. Consider installing new material after 20-30 years.
