The Many Benefits of Replacing Your Attic Insulation

Attic insulation in the Twin Cities is so important for so many reasons. With our cold winters and hot, humid summers, keeping your attic properly insulated keeps heat and air conditioning in, cutting energy bills by a possible 30%. But, just because you have insulation in your attic already, it does not mean it is doing what it was designed to do. Having your attic insulation assessed and upgraded can not only save you money, but improve a variety of other possible complications that can come with old, outdated insulation. At Lewis Insulation, we install high-quality fiberglass, foam and cellulose insulation.

If your home becomes warm quickly in the hotter months or if the attic gets too cold during the cooler months, chances are you need new insulation. When you have the experts at Lewis Insulation upgrade your attic’s insulation, you can expect year-round comfort. As experts in the industry for over 35 years, we have put together some of the many great benefits of replacing your attic insulation. Explore some of the benefits below:


Did you know that today, nearly 60% of homes in the US are not properly insulated? By having your attic insulation replaced, you can essentially ensure you are not letting money escape through the ceiling. Reduce your energy costs and help keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Proper attic insulation can also allow for even temperature distribution within the home as well as provide moisture control, and contribute to a more environmentally-friendly footprint for your home. It even has the potential to increase your home’s resale value.


Old, damaged insulation in your attic can be hosting a number of contaminants left by rodents. Due to possible disease and bacteria, these contaminants can be incredibly harmful to you and your family’s health. These contaminants can even grow and spread throughout the home if not put in check. If there is an odor present, you might very well need new attic insulation, as your current insulation may have been affected by rodents or other pests.

A Sound Structure

Old attic insulation can even begin to affect the structure of your home. Many of us adopt an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ mentality when it comes to attic insulation. However, ignoring your insulation can cause damage to beams or wood frames where rotting or mold can occur. To ensure the structure of your home, consider having your current insulation removed and new insulation installed as soon as possible.
