Insulation in homes performs an important job, but it's one of those home improvements that get installed and forgotten. Unfortunately for homeowners, insulation doesn't last forever; it can often get damaged without a homeowner's knowledge.

Four signs that your insulation is damaged include the following:

  1. Walls, floors, and ceilings are cold.
  2. The temperatures in your home continuously fluctuate.
  3. Rooms in your home are drafty.
  4. Energy bills are higher than usual.

Once the insulation in homes is damaged, its effectiveness gets diminished. Defective insulation leads to problems that will only compound over time if not treated quickly by insulation replacement professionals such as Prosite.

Damaged Insulation Can Open The Door For Many Problems

Homeowners can rack up some serious energy savings when insulation is in good repair and doing its job correctly; however, those benefits can quickly wane when insulation gets damaged. One big problem associated with damaged insulation is air-flow issues. Damaged insulation allows pollen and other air irritants to flow freely throughout homes. Rooms can start to get drafty, and regulating temperatures will prove difficult. Insulation damaged by water leaks (mainly fiberglass) is a perfect environment for mold and mildew growth. Damaged insulation also contributes to excess moisture and humidity levels in homes, attracting local pests like rodents and insects. Whether you're dealing with old or damaged insulation, the result is a loss in home efficiency and safety. To ensure your insulation is in good repair, it is always good to have it inspected regularly by professional insulation contractors like Prosite.
