Why Remove Old Insulation?

high energy bills

High energy bills 

Heating and cooling costs in Canada may account for up to 70% of your monthly bill. Poor insulation may be the reason your energy bills cost so much. The insulation in your attic may be failing to conserve the temperature in your home, which makes your HVAC system work harder than it should have to.


Pest Problems 

Squirrels, raccoons, mice, and other wildlife dirty their homes with feces and urine. If you have had pests removed from your attic, you should have contaminated insulation removed to get rid of germs and odours. Animal matter will ruin your insulation with mold. You also risk breathing in harmful bacteria and parasites the animals have left behind.

old home

Old insulation 

Insulation becomes less effective with time. It gets dusty and sags, so it does not insulate the home as well as it used to. Older insulation types may also be dangerous to your health. Homes that are built prior to 1975 may be insulated with asbestos, which has been proven to cause lung cancer.


Moisture Issues

Wet insulation does not work properly. Where there would be pockets of air within the insulation, there is water. Wet insulation is also bound to create mold, which is hazardous to your health and the structure of your home.

Insulation Removal Cost

The cost of having your insulation removed depends on the following factors:
Accessibility – How accessible is your attic? The higher the ceiling, the better. Attics with low clearance take more time to service, therefore they cost more.
Size – Smaller attics yield a higher cost per square foot. This is because we need to mobilize the same number of technicians and pieces of equipment for a smaller space.
Debris – Debris such as nails, plywood, shingles, and animal carcasses risk damaging our machinery. If there is debris in the attic, we will need to use caution. This makes the job take longer and costs more.
Amount of insulation – The more insulation is in the attic, the more it will cost to remove it.
Type of insulation – Cellulose and loose-fill insulation is easiest to remove, therefore it costs less. Batt insulation costs more to remove because it must be cut into pieces and removed manually.

DIY VS Professional Attic Insulation Removal



Working in the attic can be dangerous because the floor is often unstable and cannot withstand the weight of an adult. Inhaling insulation is dangerous, and attics get very hot, so you risk getting heat exhaustion. Let the professionals work in these difficult conditions – they know how to handle them.



Removing attic insulation usually takes somewhere between 4 and 7 hours. Amateur work takes twice the time, at least. Hiring a professional is much quicker and much more efficient.

Frequently Asked Questions

We remove insulation using a special set of vacuums, pressurized air, debris removal equipment, and extraction receptacles. First, we loosen the insulation, then vacuum it into an airtight disposal system in which the insulation goes through a pipe and into the bag in our truck. Once the insulation is removed, we clean and disinfect the attic in anticipation of fresh insulation.

We can remove blown-in insulation as well as batt and vermiculite insulation. Blown-in insulation is actually the easiest to remove and therefore costs less.

No need to rent a vacuum. We have the equipment to remove your insulation, moving it directly from your attic to our trucks. We use airtight equipment that doesn’t produce any dust or leave any debris behind. Once removed, we dispose of the insulation properly.
