The Symptoms of Poor Insulation & Air Leaks
How can you know your home is suffering from lacking or insufficient insulation, or an abundance of air leaks? Look for these signs:
Excess dust on the surfaces of your home
Unwanted musty odors
Inconsistent temperatures from room to room
High energy bills
Insulation Removal Services
There are many ways that insulation can be ruined or become less effective over time, including:
Exposure to humidity or moisture
Pest infestations (rodents and other animals can eat, nest, and produce waste in insulation)
Additionally, insulation installed decades ago is likely to have not been installed to the current recommended levels. For these reasons, when upgrading the insulation in your home, it’s almost always recommended to remove all of the old insulation before installing new insulation material. This will not only allow you to properly air seal the areas, but will ensure that old left-behind insulation isn’t creating indoor air quality problems and health issues in your home.
Disposing of old insulation can be hazardous and messy—Total Home Performance can properly and professionally remove old insulation from your home.
