Out with the Old, In with the New – for a Healthier, more Comfortable home.

Removing Insulation From Your Home

Do you need to remove old insulation from your attic?

Does your insulation look dirty, uneven, or compacted? Have you ever had mice? Is the temperature in your home uncomfortable and your energy bills too high? 

Sometimes insulation removal is necessary before re-insulating or retrofitting.  New insulation can be installed on top of old insulation, but in general, insulation needs to be removed when it is:

  • Damp
  • Moldy
  • Damaged – by water, fire, or rodent infestation

If your insulation is damaged it won’t be as effective at stopping heat transfer and therefore is much less energy efficient.  Old insulation can also trap allergens, retain pest feces, and is a big factor in poor air quality in your home.

The 3e Insulation team specializes in attic insulation removal and re-installation.  In order to take out the insulation, we either use powerful vacuums or we hand remove the batts.  If able to use a vacuum, we bring a 6 inch tube into the attic and suck the insulation into special containers outside of the home.  Our Clean and Efficient process minimizes airborne dust and allergens from entering your living area.
