Why Might You Need To Have Your Loft Insulation Removed?
Like cavity wall insulation, when loft insulation is correctly installed, it will help your home stay warm, safe and energy efficient.
However, loft insulation can cause penetrating damp, mould and condensation if:
- It’s been damaged or has become wet
- There is a lack of ventilation in your loft space
- It was installed incorrectly and, for example, doesn’t reach the internal leaf of the wall plate
- If the insulation gets wet it will act as a sponge, holding water against your ceilings
- A lack of air flow will cause condensation which will eventually lead to mould and damp
- Gaps in the insulation cause cold spots that allow heat to escape and damp to penetrate
It may take a few years before you notice anything but damp could still be damaging your home before it becomes obvious. It’s likely your energy costs will be rising too, as your heating will have to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature.
This also applies to cavity wall insulation. If you’re concerned about yours we have more information here.
