There are a few ways to assess the insulation needs of your home. Obvious signs of poor insulation include:
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, you almost certainly need to re-insulate your home.
For more subtle cases, you can compare your existing insulation to the recommendations from the Department of Energy for your climate zone. Different materials have different R-values per inch of thickness, and the DOE has suggested total R-values for different parts of your home you can look at.
Re-insulation can use all of the same materials for insulating a new home, but some are much easier to use for re-insulation than others; it’s not usually efficient or reasonable to tear down all of your walls to install new fiberglass batts, for example.
For this reason, re-insulation largely utilizes blown-in and spray foam insulation, which can be applied in difficult-to-access areas and/or directly over existing insulation with a minimum of difficulty.
In most cases, you don’t need to remove existing insulation, and you’ll be able to apply new insulation while taking advantage of any R-value offered by the previous insulation.
However, there are a few scenarios where this won’t work. If there is a sign of water damage, such as mold, then you’ll want to replace the existing insulation.
You’ll also need to replace the insulation if there isn’t enough room for the R-value you want while keeping the existing insulation in place — such as if you have older insulation with a poor R-value for its density that you’re replacing with a more efficiently insulative material.
No matter your gutter needs, the Town Building Systems team has you covered.
