Common Signs of a Poorly Insulated Home

There are several ways to tell if your home could be poorly insulated. Learn more about the telltale signs of an improperly or insufficiently insulated home.

Is Your Home Poorly Insulated?

High Energy Bills

Sudden or consistently high energy bills may be a sign that your HVAC system is compensating for heat loss.

Drafts and Cold Spots

Feeling drafts or encountering cold spots in certain areas of your home, especially near windows and doors.

Ice Dams

The formation of ice dams on the roof can be a sign of heat escaping from the home, causing snow to melt and refreeze.

Mold and Mildew

Poor insulation can lead to condensation on walls and other areas of your home, providing a conducive environment for mold and mildew growth.

Fluctuating Indoor Temperatures

Inconsistent temperatures from one room to another or variations in indoor temperature over short periods may be due to insulation issues.

Condensation on Windows

Excessive condensation on windows, particularly during the winter months, may indicate inadequate insulation and poor ventilation.

Cold Floors

Floors that feel excessively cold may lack proper insulation.

Frequent HVAC Cycling

Poor insulation may cause your heating or cooling system to turn on and off frequently.

Uncomfortable Indoor Humidity

Poor insulation can contribute to imbalances in indoor humidity levels, making the home uncomfortable.
