Every insulation material has its own density and R-value. Your climate also plays a role in your choices. Washington, DC and Maryland attics should have an R-value of 38 to 60.
It’s possible to add new insulation over old insulation, but it depends on the condition of your existing material. A contractor can inspect your insulation to detect leaks, infestations or asbestos and determine if it needs to be removed.
Well-installed insulation only needs to be replaced every 80 to 100 years. You’ll lose much of that life span through negligence, so make sure your insulation and roofing are regularly inspected for leaks and infestations.
Rising energy bills are the first sign of inadequate insulation. If your bill skyrockets without a significant change in your HVAC usage, it could mean you have air leaks due to poor insulation.
You should also replace your insulation if it gets wet or moldy. If you’re in doubt, Accurate Insulation can perform an inspection and provide expert advice.
