WHY Remove Old Attic Insulation?

High Energy Bills

There are many possible explanations for why your energy bills seem to be rising by the year but poor attic insulation is always a major suspect. Old, worn or damaged insulation is inefficient and could be the reason for mounting electric bills. The inefficient insulation is also causing your HVAC system to work harder than necessary which leads to preventable maintenance and repair costs. Most homeowners recover their investment in new attic insulation within three years.


Pests such as rats, mice, squirrels and bats in the attics aren’t just a nuisance but have likely destroyed the insulation. These pests rip insulation to use as nesting material. Furthermore, pest feces and urine contaminate the insulation and in most cases, there is little choice but to remove and replace the insulation. Wildlife urine and droppings contain numerous disease-causing pathogens some of which may be fatal.

Old insulation

Your old insulation may be inefficient and even dangerous. Attic insulation technology has improved a great deal over the past decade so you can expect a far better return on investment by replacing with new insulation. Furthermore, old insulation contains asbestos and other compounds that are now considered dangerous. This is true especially for homes built before 1975 whose insulation is most likely vermiculite.

Moisture Issues

From leaking roof to sweating pipes and poorly ventilated attics, there are many reasons for moisture problems in the attic. Consistent moisture in your insulation grows mould and mildew which cause serious respiratory problems among other health issues. Most moisture problems are difficult to diagnose and require an expert’s keen eye and experience.

Insulation Removal Cost

How much does it cost to remove insulation from an attic?

Expect the cost for insulation removal to start at around $2 per square foot. There are a few factors that can drive the insulation removal cost up.

Accessibility – How accessible is your attic? The higher the clearance inside the attic the better for everyone. Lower clearance attics require more time to work on and hence the cost per square foot will be a little higher.

Size – Very small attics will have a higher cost per square foot for removal. We would have to mobilize the same number of personell and equipment for a small attic as for a large attic.

Debris – Attics with insulation that contains a lot of debris will be more expensive to work on. Debris can damage our machinery and thus requires more care and time to deal with. Consequently, the cost increases when there is debris present. If your attic contains construction debris, nails, plywood, shingles, animal carcasses, fecal matter etc expect a higher cost for removal.

Amount of insulation – Removing higher levels of insulation is more costly that removing lower levels of insulation.

Type of Insulation – The cost to remove blown in insulation is generally lower than of that to remove batt insulation. Cellulose loose fill insulation can be removed efficiently with an insulation removal vacuum. Batt insulation on the other hands needs to be removed manually. Either cut in pieces and fed through the vacuum hose or placed in bags and taken out of the attic by hand.

DIY Vs Professional Attic Insulation Removal Toronto


Safety is a concern when getting into crawlspaces and attics. Depending on how the home is built, the attic floor may be unstable or can’t handle your weight. Hire a professional to perform attic repairs especially if you do not know what the attic floor is made from.


Professional attic remediation and insulation removal in Toronto takes between 4 – 7 hours. You can expect to take twice the time a professional would even with help from friends. It is quicker and more convenient to let a professional do the job.

Proper tools

Proper tools guarantee that the job is done properly and efficiently. You also need vacuum equipment to clean up the mess after removal, air-sealing equipment to prepare the attic for the new installation and a disposal system especially when dealing with the toxic material. Renting this equipment is most likely more expensive than simply hiring the professionals.

High-quality results

Finally, the return on investment you get from your new attic insulation entirely depends on the quality of work that went into removing the old insulation, installing the new one and everything in between. You can recoup your investment in as little as three years but only if you do the job right. Only a professional can guarantee the best possible result.
