Insulation is one of those things that we tend to take for granted as South Central Pennsylvania homeowners. We know that it's there, yet how often do we actually think about it? Sure, your home may have been insulated when it was built, but how can you be sure that the job was done properly? What many homeowners don't realize is that as many as 90% of American homes are under-insulated, and much of the insulation found in older homes is dirty, thin and ineffective.

One of the best ways to boost home performance and reduce your energy bills is to get rid of old insulation and replace it with new, high-performance material. Fortunately, we can handle every aspect of the job from start to finish.

Why should I remove old insulation?

  • Remove wet insulation from a leaky roof or fire damage
  • Remove insulation containing mold or mildew
  • Remove insulation with evidence of rodent infestation
  • Remove existing insulation containing asbestos
  • Remove insulation for better indoor air quality

Damaged insulation is not effective at stopping heat transfer and maximizing comfort and energy efficiency in your home. That's why it is important to make sure your insulation functions the way it is intended. Professional insulation removal is a service we take very seriously. When loose fill insulation is present we use commercial insulation removal equipment providing a safe effective method of removing damaged insulation. Loose fill insulation is gathered in large disposal bags outside the residence.

Improve your indoor air quality

There's no getting around the fact that many homes that are over a decade in age suffer from air sealing issues and are often characterized by a multitude of tiny cracks and gaps. This allows outside air to enter the home and eventually its living spaces, passing through the home's insulation in the process. Naturally, air that moves through dirty, moldy insulation will carry with it contaminants that can affect indoor air quality, which is why it's so important to get rid of old insulation altogether.

Create a more comfortable living environment

Has your home been drafty and uncomfortable at times? Are you struggling to keep temperatures from swinging back and forth during extreme hot and cold weather? Chances are, these and other problems have to do with a lack of proper insulation in your home. Creating a more comfortable living environment is all about getting rid of old insulation and replacing it with high-performance cellulose—one of the most effective insulating materials in the industry.

Let Energy Smart Home Improvement help!

We run into old, dirty insulation in homes all the time at Energy Smart Home Improvement. The best way to ensure that your home is properly insulated is to get rid of what was installed when the home was built and replace it with modern materials.
