1.) Insulation must be maintained. It is like anything - over the years it breaks down, becoming less effective.
2.) Every time insulation gets damp the R Value lowers by 10%. (R Value – Heat Retention Value)
3.) Insulation top up - might not have enough insulation in attic space allowing more heat loss.
4.) Ice damming or melting snow on roof surface - must be inspected to determine if insulation or ventilation are the causes. Sometimes both might be the cause.
5.) Ceiling is dripping water when the temperature outside goes up.
Proper attic insulation is another component in ensuring your home’s attic and roof system performs at its maximum potential. Heat loss and air leakage in an attic space can defeat even the best ventilation systems. It is vital for a home’s vapor barrier to be intact, and the attic adequately insulated.
