Attic Insulation Removal and Replacement

attic-insulation-removal.jpg
Why should you replace your attic insulation? The answer is simple really – to reduce heat loss from your property and reduce your energy bills. Heat rises, as we all know! If your home isn’t insulated properly, around 25% of your heat loss will be lost through your roof.

Ensuring you have appropriate insulation in place will reduce heat loss up above. If you feel like you’re spending too much on energy bills, maybe it’s time you looked into an attic insulation removal and replacement service.

But if you already have loft insulation in place, why should you replace it? Well, loft insulation doesn’t last forever – they reckon each set-up has a lifetime of approximately 30-40 years.

But of course, this all depends on numerous factors such as water damage or general wear-and-tear. Your insulation may have simply degraded over time, especially if your installation took place some time ago.

More Reasons to Replace Your Attic Insulation

Most loft insulation problems stem from poor installation techniques. Insulation is obviously not as effective if installed improperly or with poor technique. It is always best to leave this job to experienced professionals who have done this type of thing before.

Your insulation may also be water damaged, caused by a leaky roof or a burst pipe. These days, more and more of us are renovating our loft spaces and the work carried out can sometimes damage your insulation too.

Old attic insulation is often very inefficient and may lead to a spike in your energy bills. Filthy attic insulation can sometimes be an indication that you have had pests in your home, like rodents or pigeons.

This can lead to an unhealthy environment. Removing old or dirty insulation is the first step in our replacement service. We offer a friendly and professional service that removes old materials in a controlled fashion, without disturbing the rest of your home or family life.

We remove blown-in insulation and batt insulation. Batt insulation is often removed very easily, by bagging the old material and removing it manually from the attic in sections.

Can You Remove Insulation Yourself?

We would not recommend carrying this job out by yourself, especially if you have no experience of loft insulation removal and replacement. The material is full of irritants like fibreglass and rock wool.

You do not want to breathe these in! A mask and hat should be worn at all times even if you are just in the close proximity to the attic whilst work is taking place. This requires a professional approach in order to avoid contamination or potential health risks.
