Why Is Insulation Important?
Without the insulation in your attic, your energy bills would be even more out of control than they seem to be already! Air would be able to escape extremely easily, rather than circulate to keep the temperature in your home steady and comfortable. As a result, your heater and air conditioning would have to run more to compensate, and the amount of energy spent would be a nightmare.
What Can Go Wrong?
There are a number of issues that can occur with your attic's insulation that can cause it to malfunction. Environmental damage can be a factor, particularly if water has leaked into your attic. Not only will it harm the integrity of your insulation, but the water can also cause mold to grow and spread. Fire can also be an issue, as even just the smoke can have negative effects.
Have you dealt with pests in your attic? It's highly likely that they used your insulation for nesting purposes, which means they've chewed into it. This can lead to holes that cause cold spots, as well as shifting over time so it's not covering where it should be.
Age can also be a factor, as over time insulation will crumble. If you've noticed that your energy costs are starting to rise and aren't sure why, these damages may be the culprit.
