Our Insulation Maintenance Services
While many people focus on maintenance for components of their home comfort system like the HVAC unit and ductwork, an often overlooked element is the insulation. A home’s insulation system can last a very long time if it’s properly maintained, but neglecting to have a professional check on the insulation can lead to big issues.
Our company specializes in all things related to home efficiency. We’re based right here in Northern California, and we have the licensure and experience to install, maintain and repair HVAC systems, insulation, windows and doors, solar panels and more.
Since we specialize in home efficiency, we understand the role insulation plays in keeping energy costs to a minimum. We offer regular maintenance service for insulation, and in the sections to follow we will answer a few common questions about this valuable service.
Why do I need to have my insulation maintained?
As a standalone product, many forms of insulation like fiberglass batts or spray foam require very little maintenance. However, when they are installed in your home they are exposed to other elements which can render them less effective. Regular insulation maintenance ensures your home doesn’t have air gaps where outside air, unwanted pests and other harmful substances can enter. By keeping your insulation up to par, you can expect a more comfortable home, lower energy bills and an extended lifespan for your HVAC system because it’s not constantly straining to keep up with air loss.
What are some common insulation issues?
Insulation typically becomes compromised when an external factor comes into contact with it. Many forms of insulation are not waterproof, so if you have a roof leak or other water intrusion event then the insulation can be rendered useless and/or cause a mold issue. In addition, common pests which find their way into walls and attics can bite at, rearrange or displace insulation, which can also make it less effective. While it might be tempting to check out these issues on your own and try to replace or install new insulation, keep in mind insulation in many forms can be harmful to your health and should only be handled by a trained professional.
