How Does Attic Insulation Affect You?
If the insulation in your attic isn’t functioning properly, it could be costing you! Instead of keeping your home at a stable temperature by keeping heat trapped inside in the winter, the heat is instead escaping out of your attic. Rather than running for a little while and then turning off, your heater must run continuously, which is why your energy spending spikes. If you’ve noticed this happening, it’s likely time to try fresh insulation.
What Can Go Wrong With Insulation?
Aging can lessen the effectiveness of your attic’s insulation, which is why your energy bill could be rising. Other factors that may cause your insulation to need replacing are fire and water damage. Smoke itself from a fire could be enough of an issue to require action, and water can sprout mold. This mold can easily make its way into your home, which is a health risk.
Another health issue comes from pests infiltrating your attic. Not only can they damage the insulation by making nests in it, but also the diseases they spread with their waste can get carried into your house. It may also get in from you unknowingly stepping on a contaminated area while getting something from the attic, then bringing it down with you.
