Can Your Home Be Over-Insulated?

Every home needs good insulation to function properly. Insulation locks in temperatures, and keeps your house from being too warm or cold. And without decent insulation, your energy bills can skyrocket, as air from your HVAC system escapes any number of ways.

However, did you know that it’s also possible for your home to be over-insulated? It’s true. While under-insulation can lead to too much air escaping, over-insulation can trap in air so that it’s unable to circulate, resulting in poor indoor air quality, i.e. air that feels stagnant and stale. Too much insulation may also result in humid temperatures. This is a particular a problem for dark corners of your home, where a combination of excessive heat and moisture can lead to mold. Consider the attic, for instance, which is already likely to be the hottest room in your house. Since heat rises, and your attic is not only dark and cramped but on the top of your home, it can unfortunately be an ideal place for mold to grow if you have too much insulation.

So what can you do to make sure your home has the right amount of insulation? Well, for starters, you can call the Palm Beach County HVAC pros at Phoenix Air Conditioning, LLC to check your home and make sure you have the right amount.

With the proper amount of insulation, you will be able to:
