Many Phoenix, Arizona homes have insulation that has been damaged by water, perhaps from roof leaks or AC drain pan overflows.

Although most Phoenix homeowners rarely think of their insulation, removing old insulation is often the first step towards greater energy efficiency. The Ideal Energy team is skilled in insulation removal and other home weatherization projects.
Why Remove Damaged Insulation?
Insulation has a resistance to heat rating, which is what the industry refers to as R-value. When insulation is compressed, wet, burned, etc., it loses is effective R-value, making it less efficient and effective.
Unfortunately, attics are a popular place for wildlife, which can have an impact on how cool your home is in the summer and how warm it is in the winter. If your attic has rodents or other critters living in there, this can cause great damage to the insulation and can even result in a urine smell to leak into your home. Our attic abatement work involves removing insulation and using an attic vacuum to resolve this issue to get you on the road to home energy savings.
