Old insulation which is often matted, compressed, or possibly soiled due to mold or a rodent incursion will negatively impact the air quality inside a home. Attic insulation replacement can help improve the efficiency of a home. Insulation loses its effectiveness as it ages, lowering its capacity to properly insulate and maintain the comfort of the home.

- Heavy rains can seep through the roof or walls damaging the insulation allowing mold or mildew to cultivate, requiring an attic insulation replacement.
- A spike in utility bills often means that replacing the insulation will help maintain the temperature, lowering the monthly utility bills.
- Inconsistent temperatures throughout the home’s rooms are the result of inadequate insulation in the home.
