Is Old Insulation Affecting Your Indoor Air Quality and Costing You Money?
Just as your car needs to be maintained on a regular basis in order to operate at its peak capacity, so too does your home. Many Greenville, SC homeowners go year after year without having their homes inspected to ensure that everything is operating the way it should be, meaning issues like poor air sealing, faulty HVAC systems and more can get worse and worse as time goes on.
At Benton Green Energy, one of the most common issues we run into in homes over a decade old is poor insulation. Old, dirty and thin insulation won’t do your home any favors in terms of energy efficiency, and it may even affect the health and safety of you and your family.
What’s the solution? Let us remove it for you!
What’s in My Old Insulation?
Insulation is often considered to be out of sight, out of mind. We know it’s there, but how often do we actually pay attention to it? What many people don’t realize is that time isn’t necessarily friendly to insulation, as it can accumulate a wide variety of gross things like rodents, birds, roofing material, mold and other materials and pollutants. Unsurprisingly, this poses a rather large health risk, and one that should never go overlooked.
As air passes through your insulation, it picks up contaminants and delivers them to your living spaces, leading to poor indoor air quality. This is dangerous for everyone, especially those already suffering from asthma, allergies or other respiratory conditions.
Our Insulation Removal Process
Insulation tends to wear down over a long enough period of time, which decreases its R-value (or thermal resistance) and makes conditioning the home more difficult. In the end, you’re left with high energy bills, an uncomfortable home and a potential indoor air quality problem.
At Benton Green Energy, our team believes nothing matters as much as the health and safety of you and your family. We use high-powered vacuums to remove old insulation, which allows us to identify any cracks and gaps in your home so that we can air seal them. From there, we’ll work with you to choose the right insulation in order to achieve the recommended R-value.

Hey Dean! I wanted to let you know that the insulation in the room over our garage is working great! It was 87 degrees outside today, and the thermometer we had in the room read an arctic 71 degrees -- right where my wife likes it. Thanks so much!
