Do’s And Don’ts Of Removing And Installing Insulation

May 24, 2023

Apart from HVAC systems, insulation is another important part of a house as it can help reduce energy bills and provide some protection from the elements. The former is cleaned using a duct cleaning vacuum and other similar tools and the latter is installed using an insulation-blowing machine in most cases. But in spite of having these machines, it is possible to mess up the removal or installation of insulation. So to help you out, here are a few do’s and don’ts pertaining to insulation.


What To Do And What To Avoid For Insulation?




Check Local Regulations: Many buildings or areas have certain rules and regulations regarding insulation, such as thickness, the material used etc. So make sure you are aware of these rules and avoid any potential penalties. 


Thoroughly Examine Current Insulation: Before installing new insulation, check your old one for damage, moisture or other similar problems. Chances are, you might have to remove your old one before you install new insulation, which brings us to the next point.


Always Go For Professionals: Doing it yourself without experience is bound to be disastrous. So always leave this job to the professionals who have the right tools and experience to assess and take the right action.




Not Vetting Professionals: Hiring professionals for this task might be a great idea, but it is also important to properly vet them before. Look for their credentials online or ask your friends or family for help finding one. Chances are, they already know someone who did an excellent job with their home’s insulation. Otherwise, you might find your insulation lacking in efficiency, and can even cause fires if the material used is substandard.
