when you need an insulation replacement

Having an insulation issue can be difficult to determine. Let our team at AppleBlossom Energy help you determine when you need an insulation replacement in your home. Here are the top signs of insulation replacement.

  • High Energy Bill – If you notice that your energy bill is unusually high, you could be suffering from insulation problems. Insulation is designed to fill any cracks or gaps in your home, so the exterior elements won’t affect the interior of your home. When you have a high energy bill it can be a clear sign that your insulation is not functioning properly.
  • Wet Insulation – Once your insulation is exposed to moisture and becomes wet, there is no saving the material and must be replaced as soon as possible. Wet insulation can easily grow mold and become a hazard to your home. You may be wondering how your insulation became wet in the first place. Moisture gaining access to your insulation may be due to a leaky roof, blocked vents, basement flood, or the lack of a vapor barrier.
  • Change of Temperature – Change of indoor temperatures is a sign that your home is having a hard time regulating its temperature. This problem can be due to the lack of function of your insulation. If the problem continues, you may want to consider an insulation replacement.

We hope these signs will help you determine if you need an insulation replacement. If you have any questions regarding insulation, and other services we provide, please contact us today.
