Insulation has a lifespan of roughly 20 years, but it compresses and loses R-value with time.
There are several warning signals to look for when examining the condition of your insulation. If you detect an increase in your energy bill, notice drafts, or see dust build up in your home, there’s a good chance that your insulation has deteriorated.
At Eco Elements, we provide a detailed insulation assessment and determine exactly why your home isn’t as energy efficient as it could be. We will also recommend the most effective solution for your needs – whether that’s attic insulation removal, attic insulation installation, or a combination of both.
Our team of experts will work quickly and efficiently to remove your old insulation and install new, high-quality insulation that will last for years to come. We also offer a variety of other energy-saving solutions, such as attic ventilation and air sealing services to increase the overall performance of your new insulation.

Just like any other material in your home, insulation breaks down and loses its effectiveness with age. If your insulation is more than 20 years old, it’s probably time for an upgrade.
If you’ve noticed a sudden spike in your energy bills, it could be due to poor insulation. Insulation that has lost its R-value will no longer be able to effectively regulate the temperature in your home, causing your HVAC system to work overtime.
If you can hear traffic or other outside noise, it means that your insulation is no longer doing its job. Soundproofing insulation is key to a peaceful home environment.
If you’re seeing an increase in dust and dirt around your home, it’s probably because your insulation is no longer able to trap it. This can lead to poor indoor air quality and respiratory problems.
If you can feel drafts coming from your attic access, light fixtures, or other openings, it means that heat is escaping from your home. This is a clear sign that your insulation needs to be replaced.
If you see droppings, nesting material, or other signs of animals in your attic, it’s likely that they are getting in through gaps in your insulation. Not only is this a health hazard, but it can also cause serious damage to your insulation.
