Signs Your Home’s Insulation Needs Replacing

Signs your Home’s Insulation Needs to be Replaced

1. Your temperature is fluctuating more than usual.

One of insulation’s primary purposes is to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, ensuring that your home’s temperature is regulated and you can live comfortably in any season. If you notice that the temperature in your home is fluctuating more than usual, this may be a sign that your insulation is damaged or in need of replacement.

2. Your energy bills are unseasonably high.

Even if you do not feel a difference in temperature in your home, you may see the symptoms of damaged insulation in your energy bills. If your HVAC system is using more energy to regulate your temperature, your bills will be higher, which may signify that you could benefit from new insulation.

3. You feel drafts in your home.

Insulation is not always damaged entirely but may be damaged in patches or only in certain rooms. If this is the case, you may notice that some rooms feel drafty. Drafts are caused when a house’s warm air leaks out and gets replaced by cold air from the outside and can be a sure sign that your insulation is in disrepair.

4. You notice mice, rats, or other rodents.

Mice, rats, or other rodents may be in your home if your insulation is damaged. These pests can often feed off or nest in old insulation, and homes that are not appropriately sealed are more accessible for these pests to sneak into. While it is unpleasant to think about, this can happen with fiberglass insulation. With spray foam insulation, you are much less likely to experience uninvited guests in your attics and crawl spaces!

5. You are experiencing leaks or condensation.

If your home is poorly insulated, you are more likely to notice leaks or condensation in various parts of your home. Leaks can cause mold, which can be increasingly harmful to your home, your loved ones, and your pets. While water can damage insulation, water damage can also be a sign that your insulation needs repair.
