As many homeowners know, attic insulation declines in performance over time. In some cases, the insulation may simply be aging and unproductive. In other cases, the materials could be damaged or even contaminated. Whatever the situation, when it’s time for insulation removal, EcoComfort can provide homeowners with a comprehensive approach that is safe and clean.
In the attic and roof cavity, EcoComfort recommends insulation removal in a variety of scenarios. In fact, insulation removal is an ideal option when renovations are underway or when retrofitting is being considered. Regardless of the problem, it’s important to do the work right from day one.
With attic insulation, EcoComfort begins with an in-depth inspection of the space. This allows for an accurate assessment of conditions, including the existing insulation as well as the physical structure. At this stage, our experienced team will determine if insulation removal is required, or if a “topping up” approach will suffice. Beyond insulation, we inspect for air leakage and energy efficiency, where additional retrofitting (air sealing and mechanical ventilation) may be required.
With Eco Comfort, insulation removal is extensive, using state-of-the-art vacuum equipment, and managing waste materials in a safe manner. For home residents, there is no leftover mess and no residual dust. We also specialize in decontamination and disinfection, where animal waste or insect infestation may require extra work. What’s important is to prepare the attic space properly so that newly installed insulation provides long-term performance and optimal energy efficiency.
With attic insulation, a professional approach to removal and re-installation is preferred. The experts have the right equipment and expertise, and it’s not the right time or place for a DIY project. Removing insulation can be risky and dangerous, particularly if the existing insulation materials are contaminated. Even worse, there could be residual asbestos or other substances.
For the most part, it’s unwise to simply remove old insulation and replace with new materials. Before installing new insulation, EcoComfort will recommend repairs and/or retrofits that may be necessary. For example, most residential attics need to improve airtightness throughout the installation space. More than anything, this will ensure better overall insulation performance.
A well-insulated attic will save on utilities and ensure more comfort throughout the home. At EcoComfort we only use safe, chemical-free, insulation materials. Whether we install blown-in cellulose or blown-in fibreglass, all work is guaranteed and for many years of satisfaction.
