When it comes to home insulation, for most of us, this part of our house is out of sight and out of mind. As long as things seem to be working properly, there isn’t much to worry about. Even so, would you know the signs that your home insulation might need attention? Here are some tell-tale signs that your home insulation might need replacing.
- HVAC Upgrade – If you feel like your HVAC system is working overtime (or not well) and you are considering a replacement, you might want to check your home insulation first. Especially if your HVAC system is relatively new or you’ve had it checked and no problems can be found, the culprit for your home energy problems could be your home insulation instead.
- High Energy Bills – High energy bills are another indicator that your home insulation may need to be checked by a professional. If your HVAC system is running constantly but your home is never quite at a comfortable temperature, checking the insulation in different parts of your home could give guidance on what to do next.
- Drafty Living Areas – Have you noticed that you have different rooms in your home that seem to be drafty? These drafty spots are little indicators that your home insulation may not be doing its job very well. A home insulation professional will be able to determine where new insulation is needed to correct the draftiness issue.
- Home Temperature Fluctuations – Does your home temperature constantly fluctuate, and your thermostat doesn’t quite know what to do about it? Poor home insulation could be the cause. Before you spend a lot of money on new thermostats or HVAC replacement, have your home insulation checked out.
