How do you know if your insulation needs improvement?
If your home is older than 1960 and has never been renovated or has only been partially renovated, your home most likely needs re-insulation. Canada instituted a building code in 1941, but it wasn’t until two decades later when building standards became adopted by the provinces and municipalities. Today technology allows us to be more energy efficient and environmentally friendly than ever before.
If you are unsure of the age of your home, there are a few other inexpensive ways to determine if you need new or additional insulation. If you stand beside or place your hand on a wall on a cold day, you may feel a draft. If you are unable to tell if there is a cold area, we can send out a technician with our Thermal Imaging Camera to detect any insulation drafts your home may have.
Improper insulating can cause condensation build up leading to dangerous mould on your walls. If you have found any mould, it should be attended to immediately. If your house has uneven heat, the furnace or air conditioner run too frequently, or your heating bills are higher than they should be, contact us for a FREE Inspection.
