Do You Need New Attic Insulation?
You may or may not be aware when your attic insulation needs to be replaced, especially if you don’t go up there very often. There are a few things you can check for to determine if it is time to call the roofers for an insulation replacement.
Higher Energy Bills
If your energy bills have suddenly spiked for no reason, it is a good sign that you have a problem with your attic insulation. Over time the insulation can shift or fall, creating spaces where air from outside can get in. This will throw off the amount of energy required to heat or cool your home.
If you notice droppings from mice or other critters in your attic, consider replacing your insulation. The insulation is warm and cozy, making it the ideal place for a mouse to build a nest for its babies. Replacing the insulation can help you prevent a mouse infestation.
If you’ve recently had a roof leak fixed, you need to also replace your attic insulation, at least in the area around the leak. Once insulation gets wet, it is no longer effective.
