Signs You Need New Attic Insulation

Published on January 29, 2021

Signs You Need New Attic Insulation

Good attic insulation is simply essential for indoor comfort – particularly in the winter. If your home is abnormally cold, or if you’re constantly turning up the heat, poorly performing attic insulation may be the culprit. 

There are probably signs that the insulation isn’t performing for homeowners thinking of upgrading their attic insulation in Mississauga. Whatever those signs, it may be time to upgrade the existing insulation.

Because the attic is hidden, it’s difficult to see any of the deficiencies. However, a proper inspection can certainly identify areas that need upgrading. And in the attic, blown-in insulation might be the best solution.

Deficiencies in Attic Insulation

Every residential attic is uniquely different – and therefore, insulation deficiencies are different. The key to identifying specific issues is to inspect the attic professionally, allowing for recommendations on upgrades and retrofits. Not surprisingly, many issues are exposed in the attic cavity. 

 

  • Rodents may contaminate existing insulation

  • Installed insulation may have diminished R-Values

  • Attic space may have been affected by water or fire

  • Air leaks may be present because of poor installation

  • Water leaks in the attic have compromised materials

 

More than that, homeowners may be experiencing higher-than-usual energy bills. As well, the home may be cold throughout the winter and hot throughout the summer. Each of these “symptoms” may signify that attic insulation is poorly performing and needs expert repairs, upgrades, or retrofits.   

 

Blown-in Insulation for the Attic

For the attic and roof cavity, EcoComfort Insulation & Contracting recommends blown-in insulation. This product has excellent coverage throughout, satisfactory R-Values once installed, and a density that effectively blocks air leakage.

The blown-in product is quite effective in topping up existing insulation and augmenting R-Values. This can be accomplished when the existing insulation is clean, dry, and completely uncontaminated.

Blown-in cellulose is a fire-resistant product that effectively prevents the spread of fire in a space like an attic. In fire tests, the product has proven to be up to 50% more fire-resistant than other materials.

Blown-in products are ideal for insulating those “hard-to-reach” areas that are typically found in the attic. With a professional install, holes, gaps, and cavities are filled much better than batt insulation.

Because of the simpler installation, blown-in products require less man-hours to install than other insulation products. As such, it’s a cost-effective option and at a lower cost than other products.
