Insulation is designed to hinder the transmission of heat between your home and the outside environment. Heat always attempts to move from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration. So, if it’s hot outside your home will start to warm up and vice versa. Insulation slows down that process, making it easier for your climate control system to maintain a comfortable environment.
The insulation itself comes in a number of forms. Often it is a thick batting material, which is installed in the walls and floor of the home. In areas with unusual dimensions, blow-in material is used instead. This is most common in attics and other areas that don’t have straight vertical walls.
There are times when new insulation needs to be installed. The first is, obviously, when constructing or adding on to a new home. A home without insulation will be boiling in the summer and freezing in the winter, which nobody wants.
The second time that insulation installation is required is when the original insulation has been damaged or destroyed. There are a number of things that might do this. It’s possible that moisture has found a way into the walls, causing mold to grow in the insulation. In this case, it needs to be replaced. It’s also possible that animals have damaged your home’s insulation. Birds, squirrels, and even raccoons love to use insulation as nesting material. They tear the insulation into pieces, which obviously decreases its effectiveness.
Finally, insulation ages and lessens efficiency just like most things. If your insulation has never been replaced before, and you live in an older house, you should have a professional examine it to make sure it’s still in good condition.
