Sign #1: No Control of Temperature

The first sign on this list is if your home is unable to reach or stay at the temperature you set your HVAC system to, a clear indication your insulation is in need of replacement. Failing to address this will only result in you being uncomfortable at home and wasting money on your energy bills.

If you believe this may apply to you, turn your system off and pay attention to how long it takes for your home to return to the temperature prior to turning your HVAC system on. If all it takes is a few minutes, you may be in the market for new insulation.

Sign #2: Home Lets in Too Much Moisture

As if wasting your money and making you uncomfortable weren’t enough, deficient insulation also welcomes in an excess amount of moisture. This increases the chances mold finds its way inside your home, which has an influence over the next sign.

Sign #3: Poor Health

Having mold in your home is not only discomforting, but it is also detrimental to your health. When symptoms like the following persist, there is a chance they are a result of the mold a weak insulation system allowed to build up:

  • Respiratory discomfort
  • Headaches
  • Irritated skin
  • Fever
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea

These symptoms may lead to more serious health problems, so have the insulation experts in the Coachella Valley inspect yours to avoid this from happening to you.

Sign #4: Bad Smells

In addition to helping your home reach a comfortable temperature, an HVAC system cleanses the air inside by filtering out particles that would otherwise stink it up. However, because failing insulation does not allow your HVAC system to do what it does best, cringe-worthy odors would eventually make their presence known.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, the gaps in insulation signaling it needs replacing would let in unpleasant smells from outside, only worsening the issue.

Sign #5: Pests

An unfortunate reality when it comes to insulation is that pests like to make it their home. Rodents are able to find their way in and nest there, and once one is in, the issue can quickly take a turn for the worse.

Noticing any droppings or the actual pests themselves may be your insulation’s way of telling you it needs a replacement sooner rather than later.

Replace Before Your Insulation Before It’s Too Late

The consequences from having tarnished insulation may start out small, but they can become significant seemingly overnight. If you feel like one of these apply to your home, reach out to the experts before things get too out of hand.
