Is My Attic Supposed to be Cold?



It's not the best sign if your attic is cold whenever you pass by it or go in. While some attics are naturally cooler than others due to their location (for example, one on the north side of the house), if your attic is cold year-round even when temperatures outside are warm enough for shorts and T-shirts - this could be an indication of a bigger problem.

Roof Vents

Check to see if there are any gaps in the roof vent that allows for airflow. If so, caulk these up with weather stripping or duct tape. It's essential to seal up vulnerable areas like this around your home so that you don't have to deal with cold spots in every room.

Poor Ventilation or Insulation

Ventilation is vital for several reasons, but it's crucial in attics. Poor ventilation causes cold attics even during warmer weather seasons. Attic insulation can also be damaged by the moisture from poor ventilation, which leads to decreased insulation effectiveness and an increased risk of mold growth, so you need to get this fixed up as soon as possible.

Our Insulation Process

Very often, GreenPro Cleaning & Restoration sees sub-floor insulation that is installed incorrectly. The two most common problems that usually need to be corrected are insulation installed upside down and insulation that is not secured correctly. Insulation does play an important part in keeping your attic or crawlspace in good condition.

Unfortunately, when insulation is installed upside down and the craft paper is wet, it must be removed and disposed of. GreenPro Cleaning & Restoration will evaluate the current insulation; if the insulation can continue to be used, we will tell you. If not, we will discuss the available options to provide you with the best and most cost-effective solution.
