Good insulation is the most practical and cost effective way to make a home more energy efficient. It’s the best way to keep warmer in winter and cooler in summer! With less heat escaping in winter and coming in during summer, you’ll reduce you reliance on expensive heat and cooling systems, reduce your usage, and save money on your bills.
How to tell if your insulation needs to be replaced:
- High energy bills
Energy costs can rise dramatically when there is a lack of insulation or poor insulation. When heat can escape easily, your heater is forced to work harder to keep you warm, giving you higher energy bills.
- Fluctuations in your indoor temperature
Are you noticing the temperature in your home consistently changing? If so, your insulation could be the culprit. Insulation that’s fitted poorly can move without your knowledge, leading to changes in your heating and cooling. Fight back with the Energy Efficiency Centre’s professional installers!
- Wet insulation
A leaky roof means wet insulation. Considering the weather lately, this could be your home. If this is the case, it’s important to replace it immediately – and fix the roof, of course! Wet insulation doesn’t work properly, and it can grow mouldy, releasing dangerous pores into the air.
- Rodent infestations
As horrible as it is to think about, rats, mice, and possums all like to find dark places to live – and die. Noticed a funny smell lately? Excrement and dead bodies soil insulation, making that smell impossible to get rid of. Call Energy Efficiency Centre today to find out what to do!
Poorly fitted insulation allows drafts to sneak into your home. If you’re noticing cold drafts through your house, even when the windows and doors are all closed, it could be your insulation.
When your insulation is compressed in your roof space, it might not be as effective as promised when you had it installed. Replacing it with Energy Efficiency Centre’s ‘lifetime guarantee’ is the best way to fix this problem for the life of your house!
