How’s your insulation performing?

Keeping the warm in your home during winter is not only a good idea for your personal comfort, but it is also a consideration on your energy usage. 

If your insulation is old and not performing the way it used to, then it might be time to have it replaced.  You will notice your energy costs are going up and it takes that bit more to keep your house warm during winter.

The challenge with replacing insulation is removing the old insulation from the ceiling cavity.  Even insulation that was laid in batts may no longer be in batts!  Over time it may have broken down so instead of nice rectangular batts that would be easy to remove, they could be in lots of little clumps of insulation. 

If you had ‘blow in’ insulation, then vacuuming it out is the only way to remove it.

We work with many insulation companies to come in and remove the old insulation before they put in the new insulation into your property.  The great thing is, that at the same time as removing the old insulation, we can also do a dirt and dust vacuum to pick up all that dirt, dust and often pest droppings that have settled under the insulation on your ceiling.

If you or anyone in your home suffers from asthma, a ceiling cavity dirt and dust vacuum is a great idea as these dirt and dust particles will filter through the ceiling causing asthma suffers some grief.

Working in a ceiling cavity is not a DIY job.  It can potentially be very dangerous working in a small confined space and electricity is a major danger point.  You never want to do this as a DIY job or a quick cash job to a guy down the street, you need to use a professional. 

If you haven’t had your insulation replaced in a while, it could be worth considering to increase the efficiency of your home.  A dirt and dust vacuum (with or without insulation removal and replacement) is also a good idea for the health of everyone in your home.  With our specialised vacuum system and professional training (plus fully insured) we can help you out with all of the above, just give us a call on 1300 654 253 to discuss your needs.
