What are the signs I need new insulation?

There are several signs you might need new insulation. For example, you may need to upgrade your insulation if:

  • Your electricity, heating and cooling bills continue to rise.
  • An auditor notes during your whole-house energy assessment that you need insulation in certain areas.
  • Your rooms have uneven (and uncomfortable) temperatures.
  • Drafts of cold air are entering your house.
  • You’re having moisture, mold or mildew issues.

If you think your home might be under-insulated or it’s time for some better insulation, hire an insulation contractor
