The Importance of Proper Attic Insulation Removal in Toronto

Published on April 12, 2024

Virtually all attic insulation has an expiration date. Typically, in 10-20 years of installed attic insulation in Toronto, it will begin to lose its efficacy and be more prone to problems than fresher high-quality insulation. By identifying when your insulation is no longer working the way it should, you can schedule attic insulation removal with the experienced team at EcoComfort Insulators. Prioritizing the proper insulation removal will protect your attic and home while also allowing you to boost your energy efficiency with new blown-in cellulose insulation. To find out if you need removal services, book an attic inspection in Toronto with the experts at EcoComfort.

Here's why you should make attic insulation removal a priority this spring. 

Remove Water Damaged Insulation

The Importance of Proper Attic Insulation Removal in TorontoIt's not uncommon for insulation to become water-damaged over time, especially in older properties with vulnerabilities or roof damage. After the winter, when ice, wind, and snow build-up and damage the roof and attic, it makes way for melting ice and snow to enter the attic and infiltrate your attic insulation. Once wet, insulation doesn't perform at its peak. It can cost you energy and home comfort. If water-damaged insulation isn't addressed with attic insulation removal, it can quickly turn into mold. 

Keep Mold Out of Your Attic

Mold is an incredibly common problem for homeowners in Toronto, Mississauga, and throughout the GTA, and the attic is usually where infestations are found. When attic insulation in Toronto ages and becomes more exposed to humidity and leaks from the roof, it attracts mold spores, which ultimately turn into outbreaks that overtake the insulation, which is used as a food source. As mold proliferates, the effectiveness of the insulation decreases, and your indoor air quality becomes compromised. When your attic is filled with mold, you may not even know until you schedule an attic inspection with experts like the EcoComfort team, who specialize in attic mold removal and insulation removal. To prevent infestations from spreading, you will typically require professional mold remediation for your attic insulation. 

Preserve Energy Efficiency at Home

When your attic insulation stops working at peak, whether that's the result of age, water damage, mold, or even rodent infestations, it can spell trouble for your home and wallet. Attic insulation is a critical component in good energy efficiency at home. When your insulation works properly, energy waste is minimized by minimizing your dependence on heating and cooling mechanisms like central air conditioning, furnaces, space heaters, and fans. When your insulation can no longer retain heat, more strain and energy are being used, which can substantially increase your monthly utility costs. 

What to Do After Insulation Removal

After removal, your attic will still need insulation to compensate for what has been removed. If there is still existing insulation, the attic experts at EcoComfort Insulators may recommend topping it up with blown-in cellulose insulation. This is a quick process with high-quality insulation that will instantly improve your home's energy efficiency. EcoComfort can still help with blown-in insulation installation if you need all-new insulation. We use high-quality products and experienced technicians to get your attic back in good shape.
