Insulation Repair / Replacement
When people think about insulation, they often think about the heating and cooling aspects. However, insulation that is not installed correctly or is lacking can actually lead to pest problems that may ultimately destroy your home.
Why Properly Installed Insulation Matters for Your Home
How your home is insulated matters. If you do not have enough insulation, then there is a good chance that you have just created an environment that is perfect for an infestation. Here are some things that you may want to consider when inspecting the insulation of your home.
- Over the years insulation can bunch up and leave gaps between your joists and floors. These gaps can become natural homes to insects and rodents looking for a place to live.
- Homes have to be able to breathe. This means that a certain amount of airflow has to be able to move through the walls of your home. Warm air has a tendency to move to areas filled with cold air. A home that has too much insulation or not enough will not be able to keep the comfortable temperature needed to make a home pleasant to live in.
- Old insulation can become a health hazard to your family. Anytime moisture comes in contact with insulation you can end up with a mold problem. Should water damage appear in your home, it would be a good idea to inspect the insulation for potential problems.
- Understand that there are different types of insulation. Seek professionals to help you decide the best insulation for your home. It is wise to consult professionals that know what type of insulation is best for your home.
