3 Reasons Why You Need to Replace Your Home’s Attic Insulation

  1. Room temperatures are not consistent with each other: When walking from one room to another, you notice a significant difference in temperature. This difference in temperature may mean that the insulation in that room is in need of replacement. Degradation of insulation can come from age, water damage, or even insect damage.
  2. It’s especially important to be cautious after a significant storm or flood event, as these events can cause damage to your attic insulation, which may not present any immediate signs. In some cases, water damage to insulation occurs at the beginning of the year, and its effects do not create noticeable side effects until much later that year.
  3. Outrageously high heating and cooling bills could be a sign that your insulation is not doing what it should. Most homes have heating and cooling equipment that detects a change in the temperature of the house. When they sense this change, they kick on to regulate the temperature in the room. If rooms are insulated improperly, the energy bills will be higher than they should be.

If you suspect that your attic insulation in Indianapolis, IN is getting older and you want to check it, you can go up to your attic, wear protective gloves, and grab a hand full of the insulation. If it falls apart in your hand, that means it’s time to replace it because insulation that is in good functioning form does not behave that way when handled.

When replacing your attic insulation, it is essential to find the right brand that suits your needs. Owens Corning is one of the most reputable brands when it comes to insulation. It is not only known for its longevity and durability but also for its effectiveness and quality construction.

Always remember that insulation can be harmful if it touches exposed skin. It is also essential to retain the services of a professional insulation installation company.
