You likely don’t spend much time in your attic, unless you’ve transformed it into a living space. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t keep it clean and maintained. Your attic is an important space when it comes to losing conditioned air and letting outdoor air inside. Here’s when to upgrade the attic insulation in your Moreno Valley, California, home:
Higher Energy Bills
Your heating or cooling bills are higher than usual. Numerous things that can cause this, including poor attic insulation. Inadequate or a lack of insulation in your attic will cause your HVAC system to work harder to make up for the lost conditioned air. As a result, it’ll drive up energy bills and strain itself to meet your demands.
Do you hear scurrying coming from above? It’s possible that a battalion of pests has infiltrated your protective layer of attic insulation. You’ll need to replace it to make sure there aren’t feces or even babies leftover after you evict the pests from your attic.
Wet insulation, whether it’s slightly damp or sopping wet, is bad. There’s no salvaging the material, and if you try, you’ll quickly find you have a problem with microbial growth. If you notice that your nsulation is wet, have it replaced by a professional installer.
Insulation works to keep indoor and outdoor air where it belongs. Poor insulation can cause drafts and uneven temperatures inside your home, which impacts not only your HVAC system but also your comfort. If you notice hot and cold spots around your house, contact a professional insulation installer to conduct an inspection.
