How Often Does Insulation Need to Be Replaced?
Insulation, when first installed, will fill out the entirety of the designated space, whether in the attic or between the walls. However, over time, even if the insulation is not damaged in any way by natural elements, it will start to settle or sink down. For example, after about 10 years, a foot of insulation can settle by 50%, leaving about six inches of space. This level of sinkage means the current insulation will not be nearly as effective at its job.
Other reasons that insulation may need to be replaced would include being damaged by rats, mice, and other pests. Wild animals love to make nests in insulation. In addition to causing the insulation to be less efficient, this is also highly unsanitary to people living in the house.
