Does My Attic Need Insulation?

There are signs and symptoms you may need attic insulation in your home. The most common are:

  • Lower utility bills

  • Better indoor air quality
  • Better indoor comfort

DIY or Hire a Professional?

It can be tempting to buy supplies and insulate your attic on your own. There are several situations when we would recommend hiring a professional. If you have: 1) Difficult attic access or limited work space. 2) Wet or damp insulation (indicating a leaky roof). 3) Moldy or rotted attic rafters or floor boards (again, indicating a moisture problem). 4) Kitchen, bathroom or dryer vents that exhaust moist air into the attic. 5) Knob or tube wiring (indicating a fire hazard when in contact with insulation).

If you are hesitant or are experiencing any of the above conditions, we suggest hiring a professional to get the job done.
