Signs You Need to Replace Your Attic Insulation

Proper attic insulation is key to your home’s energy efficiency and also safeguards it from water damage. Over time, however, your attic insulation can deteriorate, leading to a wide range of problems in the home. In today’s post, Arry’s Roofing Services, Inc., your premier roofing company, shares three signs that it’s time to replace your attic insulation:

Attic Insulation

Fluctuating Indoor Temperature

If your indoor temperature is continually fluctuating, this could be a sign of compromised attic insulation. When the material has shifted in the attic areas and has allowed cold air and heat into the home, it sabotages the HVAC’s attempts to regulate thermal condition. In some cases, adding extra batting can rectify the problem, but usually this issue requires replacement.

Rising Energy Costs

Outside air has a way of sneaking into your home. Inadequate insulation can undermine your home’s energy efficiency and have a significant impact on your heating and cooling bills. Licensed and trained roofers can offer a cost-effective solution to this problem.

Our company delivers and installs Attic Breeze, an innovative solar-powered attic fan that pulls warm air out of your attic. It was selected by the Texas Energy Conservation Office as the winner of the 2011 Eureka Awards, which annually recognizes innovative green technologies. This ventilating system can be attached to different roofing materials, including metal and tile.

Drafts Inside

If your house is drafty, your attic insulation could be to blame. A poor insulation job doesn’t provide a sufficient barrier between the outside and inside air, resulting in drafts in your home. If you notice drafts even after closing the doors and windows, check your attic insulation for signs of damage.
