What We Do ─ Insulation Removal

If your attic has old or dirty insulation, it may be time to get it looked at and replaced. Old attic insulation is often inefficient and could lead to unnecessarily high energy bills. Dirty attic insulation, on the other hand, could have been the result of pests like rodents and birds that contaminated the insulation, which can lead to an unhealthy home. If either of these situations are the case, it’s time to remove insulation from attic spaces to maximize the safety and energy-efficiency of your house.

There are several reasons why doing this yourself is not a safe option for most homeowners. Problems can occur if you try the removal yourself without adequate protection and expertise. For instance, should pests or rodents have gotten into your insulation, stirring up dust and fecal matter might lead to contracting potentially fatal diseases. Also, not everyone is familiar with the appearance of some potentially dangerous materials that older insulation has been made out of, such as asbestos and older fiberglass products, which can be very dangerous to work with without protective equipment. Lastly, with blown-in insulation removal, it’s often the case that the insulation can be higher than the joists in your ceiling, which makes it difficult to see where you are walking. Although it is tempting to try to remove the loose fill or batts yourself, there is a very real chance that you could end up causing accidental damage such as stepping through your ceiling!

  • Sealing air leaks around your home and adding insulation can help your home be more comfortable and energy efficient and provide up to a 10% savings on your annual energy bills.

  • Sealing leaks and adding insulation can improve the overall comfort of your home and help to fix many of these common problems:

    • Reduced noise from outside

    • Less pollen, dust and insects (or pests) entering your home

    • Better humidity control

  • Most homes in the United States don't have enough insulation and have significant air leaks. In fact, if you added up all the leaks, holes and gaps in a typical home's envelope, it would be the equivalent of having a window open every day of the year!
