High energy costs is a growing concern for homeowners these days. There are ways to help cut those costs and proper insulation is one very important one. Buying energy efficient appliances or having your windows and doors redone is not going to give you the results you desire unless your house is insulated right. A poorly insulated home is susceptible to condensation buildup. Condensation buildup can lead to mold and mildew throughout your insulation as well as damage to your ceilings and roof. If left for too long this can lead to costly repairs. A well insulated home will keep you warm in the winter and cooler in the summer helping you to achieve your goal of reduced energy costs and comfortable living! Insulation is measured in an R-value, this is the thermal resistance. It is recommended in Alberta climate to have an R-value of 40 plus.
There are many different reasons for having your old insulation removed. Often if there was poor ventilation in an attic you will find mold and mildew. If the spread of mold through the insulation occurs it will actually reduce the air quality throughout your home and can be harmful. Another reason people get their old insulation removed is due to recent home renovations. The dust and dirt from work being done can get trapped throughout your home and in your insulation. A fire in the home will cause the insulation to trap in the smoke and soot and lead to poor air quality in your home as well. At 4Weather we are equipped to remove your old insulation and blow in new insulation often on the same day (depending on the size of the job.) We provide excellent advice on insulation removal as well as free estimates so if you have any questions about your old insulation please feel free to call us.
Proper ventilation is essential in maximizing the full potential of your insulation. These two things go hand in hand in ensuring that there is proper air circulation throughout your attic. By doing this you ensure that your hot air will escape in the summer keeping your home cooler and moisture will escape in the winter reducing condensation buildup. Properly installed ventilation allows your insulator to fill all the nooks and crannies thereby giving you the proper R-value all the way thru your attic. Making sure that you are getting what you have paid for!
