What Your Senses Are Saying About Your Attic Insulation

Published on June 14, 2023

Homeowners don't often think too much about their attic insulation in Mississauga. Although attic insulation is out of sight, it should definitely not be out of mind. Your attic insulation is integral to keeping your home energy efficient and functioning optimally. If you begin to sense your home's temperature is not balanced or unexplained drafts, you may need an attic insulation removal and upgrade to new attic insulation. EcoComfort are attic experts that can thoroughly perform an inspection and assess your attic's condition and whether you need to upgrade your attic insulation or not.

Keep reading to learn what your senses say about your attic insulation. 

Bad Odour

attic insulation removalIf you begin to smell mold in your attic, you may have inadequate ventilation. Another source of mold in the attic is moisture from a roof leak, which can be caused by a lack of proper attic insulation in Mississauga. During the winter, if an attic is not adequately insulated and hot air escapes from the house to the roof, the warm hair heats the roof, making the snow melt and then refreeze when it gets to the roof's edge, creating an ice dam. Once an ice dam is created, it will prevent melting water from flowing and back up melting water into the roof, creating a leak. 

Once water gains access to your attic it mold will grow. Remember mold infestations cause rot and decay to the materials they grow on, so you need to take care of the issue promptly so it does not become very costly to restore later on.

Seeing Water Stains and Mold on the Ceiling

Water stains on the attic's ceiling indicate water damage and that water has entered the property. Mold and water stains appear when the insulation has failed, allowing water dams to be created and compromising the roof's integrity allowing water in. 

Unexplainable Drafts

If you notice your home has unexplainable drafts and you have to turn up your heat more than usual, this may be a sign that you need an attic insulation removal and upgrade. If your attic insulation has been compromised, drafts will be able to enter, and your home will become energy inefficient. Attic insulation helps to keep the temperatures in your home balanced, prevents your home from losing warm air from the furnace, and prevents hot air from entering through the attic during the summer months.

Having adequate attic insulation will help lower your utility bills and make your home more energy efficient.
