Whether you are buying an old or a new house, insulation is imperative. Proper home insulation ensures that you can keep your space at the desired temperature and helps keep your home energy-efficient. If you recently bought a second-hand property, Premier Insulation BOP shares three signs that you need to re-insulate your home.
Unexplained surges in electricity bills
If you notice a huge spike in your electricity bills, the first thing you need to do is to check if your heating and cooling systems are working well. Otherwise, it could be that your home is not properly insulated that warm and cool air continue to escape through the roof and walls. In the long run, it’s more cost-efficient to re-insulate that risk driving your appliances further just to keep the desired temperature.
Regular windy drafts
If you continuously feel windy drafts even with windows and doors closed, you probably have an insulation problem. Of course, it makes sense to first check if the seals on your doors and windows are intact. After checking the possible culprits, you need to check other parts of your home, especially your attic, for cold drafts so you can schedule re-insulation work. Remember that condensation can develop into mould and mildew growth that could lead to health-related problems.
Watch out for fluctuating temperatures
You can do the temperature check by touching walls, ceilings, and floors if they’re unusually cool. If some of areas or rooms in your house are colder or warmer than others, it means that your home needs to be re-insulated. Otherwise, your cooling and heating systems consistently need to work twice as hard to maintain the desired temperature that you want.
