As a homeowner, it might not be easy to tell whether your home is adequately insulated. If you have an older home and haven't upgraded your insulation in a while, the chances are your property isn't correctly sealed and insulated. People with homes that aren't protected as per the current standards often spend an unnecessary amount of money on heating and cooling costs. Some telltale signs that point towards an under-insulation issue are:
Constantly fluctuating temperatures: Does the temperature in different parts of your home fluctuate even when your air-conditioner or heating system runs continuously? Your home is probably suffering from air leakage as a result of poor insulation.
Spike in your energy bills: Air leakage in your home's insulation system puts stress on your heating and cooling system. They work overtime to heat or cool your home, which results in unusually high energy bills.
Icicles on eavestrough: A clear visual sign of a malfunctioning insulation system is the formation of icicles on your eavestrough. You will see ice on your roof's edge when your insulation is damaged.
Cold drafts: An insulation system is meant to keep chilly drafts out of your home in the winter. Their presence inside your home means there is a point of entry for these drafts in your insulation system, which can easily be remedied by our insulation contractors in Edmonton.
Some other indications that your older home needs an insulation upgrade are frozen pipes, unexplainably colder rooms and walls, floors and ceilings that are cold to touch. If you still have doubts, schedule an appointment with us, and we’ll be happy to help.

Opting for the right home insulation material can be a daunting task as there are many options available in terms of material and cost in Edmonton. Most heat loss occurs through the attic and roofs, and hence, attic insulation is one of the most commonly preferred insulation systems for residential properties.
If you are looking to cut down the expenses, cellulose insulation can be used. This insulation material is not only used for the attic but for other areas as well. Cellulose can be either filled through a blow-in method or loose-filling. Recycled newsprint or denim is used for this process. Fibreglass is another method of home insulation method where fine glass fibres are used.
