Signs of the Time: Insulation

Maintaining proper attic and ceiling insulation is just as important as installing a quality, durable roofing system. Nearly 70% of the energy used in a home goes towards heating and cooling. That's why it's so important to make sure you have enough insulation. A simple insulation fix can generate savings of upwards of 50% on your heating and cooling costs. Find out if your home is properly insulated by watching for the following 5 signs you should consider replacing your insulation.

The main function of insulation is to control a home’s climate and keep us comfortable. If you have noticed rising or erratic heating or cooling bills it could indicate an insulation problem.

When checking your attic, look for black or dark coloration on roof decking and the top of the insulation. This could signal mold or mildew growth due to improper insulation coverage.

The largest indication of insulation problem is the easiest to spot. It’s simply a complete and total lack of insulation. Check your attic, if you see uneven distribution, compacted, or deteriorating insulation, or the space is completely bear it’s time to upgrade.

The next time you pull into the driveway, take a look at your roof. If you see moss growth, black streaking, or a lack of snow pack after a heavy winter storm this could be evidence of an insulation problem and costly energy loss.

Cold or drafty rooms indicate a lack of insulation. Conduct a “touch test” to help determine the source of energy losses or drafts. If your walls fail the test it might be time for an insulation upgrade.
