October is a great month to add insulation in homes that need need increased energy savings and additional comfort. In most locations across the United States it is cold enough to work in the attic without a cooling machine such as the chill box. Depending on how old your customer’s insulation is, you may need to remove a portion of the old insulation to better insulate the area. Older insulation may not be as resistant to heat transfer as today’s insulation products due to technological advances in manufacturing. Also, older insulation has the potential to be contaminated by mold growth if there has ever been a water leak or unwanted critters in the attic. Replacing old insulation is the best case scenario. To remove insulation consider using an insulation removal system for loose-fill insulation. This system will help speed up the process and allow you move on to the primary job which is adding new insulation to the home.
