Do you sometimes wonder if the insulation in your attic is truly doing its job in helping to keep your Fort Worth, TX, home cool in the summer and warm in the winter? Perhaps your house seems difficult to keep at a consistent indoor temperature, or your HVAC system seems to keep running and using up a lot of electricity. If so, it may well be worth it to look inside your attic to see if the insulation is damaged or improperly installed and needs replacing.
Some of the surest signs that the attic insulation in your home in Fort Worth, Texas needs to be replaced include:
- Gaps – If your insulation has gaps and open spaces, the insulation was probably incorrectly installed or made from a low-quality material.
- Compression – Insulation that looks flat or matted, whether from being packed in too tight or from gradual compression, can’t perform properly, since it needs to trap air to prevent heat transfer.
- Water damage – Damp, stained, or moldy attic insulation material can indicate not only the need for replacement, but also that your roof is leaking and is in need of repair.
- Deterioration – Disintegration, rotting, crumbling, and other evidence of the material falling apart are some of the most easily noticeable signs that your insulation should be replaced.
