How to tell if your insulation needs to be replaced?

The first sign that you should consider adding to or replacing your existing insulation is obvious; if it’s hot outside, and it’s also hot inside, there’s a problem. Once you’ve verified that your AC system is in working order and should be able to meet the needs of your building, it’s time to turn your attention to the insulation. Get it inspected, there are a few likely causes to weak insulation performance:

NOT ENOUGH – It could be that your building was not sufficiently insulated from the time it was built. In which case, adding to your existing insulation would be recommended. 

OLD INSULATION – Alternatively, if your building is old, the original insulation may not be performing like it did when it was new. In which case, you can ask a professional if it makes more sense just to add to it, or rather to replace the insulation completely. 

DAMAGE – The other reason to replace your insulation is if it’s been damaged. Here are the 3 common causes of insulation damage around the Atlanta area: 
 
  • Mold This is a common issue in Atlanta. If you find mold growing in your home, it is important to take action to remove it and prevent it from coming back. One way to do this is to remove and replace any insulation that may have been affected by mold.
