Published on December 28, 2022
Upgrading your home's insulation isn't always at the forefront of your mind. However, when you begin to notice trouble in your home, like inconsistent temperatures, poor air quality or high utility bills, it's likely time to upgrade to blown in insulation in your attic. Having adequate attic insulation is an integral part of a warm and healthy home this winter, so look no further than blown in insulation from EcoComfort. Blown in insulation is a fantastic way to increase your home's energy efficiency and add extra R-value, all while improving indoor comfort and saving you money.
Here's what you need to know about topping up your insulation with EcoComfort this winter.
Winter is an excellent time to replace your attic insulation with blown in insulation from EcoComfort. With a heavy reliance on heating, you'll be able to notice if your home is actually retaining heat or not. If you see your home is still cold and drafty despite the heat being on, it may be time for new attic insulation. Inadequate or aging insulation may cause significant heat loss in your home this winter, and as a result, not only are you cold in your home, but your furnace also has to work harder to heat the entire property. With your furnace working overtime, it will cause your energy bills to skyrocket.
After an Attic Inspection
Attics often go unnoticed; they're out of sight and out of mind. However, your attic may be the root cause of issues throughout your home. A professional attic inspection from the experienced specialists at EcoComfort will tell you any possible problem areas in your attic, such as your insulation. Our team will assess the quality of your insulation and if it requires a replacement. If it's over ten years old, or if there has been previous water damage in your attic, you'll likely need to upgrade your insulation.
When Attic Insulation Replacement is Recommended
Attic insulation replacement is recommended for various reasons. For instance, if the insulation is older than a decade, if there have been roof leaks, if it contains asbestos, or if mold is present. If you think your insulation may deteriorate or become inadequate, keep note of your energy bills. If they keep getting higher and higher despite the temperature in your home being cold or inconsistent, contact EcoComfort for an attic inspection.
