Insulation plays a very important role in maintaining a comfortable temperature within a residential or commercial building and in completing the building envelope. Other advantages of insulation are that it reduces heating and cooling costs, increases the life of your roofing shingles and absorbs sound within a home. However, there are instances when old insulation needs to be removed completely before new insulation can be installed. One of the best times to opt for insulation removal in Ottawa is during a renovation or an upgrade project in your home.
One of the most important reasons for opting for insulation removal in Ottawa is when insulation is compromised by smoke, water, mold, or is damaged. Another reason why insulation may need to be removed is if it’s improperly placed or installed. Improperly installed insulation restricts airflow, especially in the attic. This situation may lead to the growth of mold or mildew and this causes additional issues.
