Do you know if your home has sufficient insulation? The North American Insulation Manufacturers Association believes 90% of US homes do not. That means 90% of US households are needlessly wasting money on heating and cooling. Could you be one of them?
Poor insulation forces your heating and cooling system to work overtime. As a result, you spend hundreds of dollars to heat or cool air that then leaves your home. The more warm or cool air you can keep inside your home, the less you need to use your heating or cooling. Using less energy is good news for you and your wallet.

By installing or replacing the insulation in your home, you can experience benefits such as:
Replacing insulation is often the best option for older homes. Your existing insulation may have deteriorated over the years, resulting in water damage, rodents, pests, or mold. Older insulation performs poorly when compared to modern alternatives. By replacing your insulation you could improve your home’s energy efficiency.
At Top Energy Solutions we can audit the insulation in your home. Our team will inspect and assess your property. We look for signs of problems such as:
Water can wreak havoc on insulation. Waiting for insulation to dry out is not the recommended option. Insulation is efficient at trapping heat and also traps a considerable about of moisture. It takes a long time to dry, especially in the winter months. This can lead to a mold problem. Soggy insulation allows mold to grow underneath the insulation, potentially damaging the ceiling. The mold must be treated and removed along with the damaged insulation.
Another major source of damage can be vermin. Insulation provides an ideal living environment for all sorts of vermin. Animals like to burrow through insulation and use it for nesting. Animal droppings will also be littered throughout the insulation and this is a health hazard for humans.
Even if a rodent or pest infestation is treated, it is important to replace the damaged insulation. Covering up old insulation with a layer off new insulation is asking for future problems. All the odors, animal waste, and bacteria will still be there and will get worse over time. When replacing your insulation you can also rodent-proof your attic or crawl space to avoid any future infestations.
