Attic insulation removal is the process of safely and thoroughly eliminating old or damaged insulation to improve energy efficiency and prepare for a fresh, effective insulation application.
Attic Floor Air Sealing
Attic floor air sealing involves meticulously sealing gaps, cracks, and openings in the attic floor to prevent air leaks, ensuring better energy efficiency and temperature regulation in your home. This service is only needed if installing new blown or batted insulation.
New Insulation Installed
Installing new blown or spray foam attic insulation is a highly effective way to enhance your home's energy efficiency, offering improved thermal performance, reduced energy costs, and enhanced comfort throughout your home.

Attic insulation removal is a crucial process that requires careful consideration. It can significantly enhance your home's comfort, energy efficiency, and indoor environment, but it's not without its challenges. An attic filled with aged, dusty, and potentially contaminated insulation can pose health risks and compromise efficiency. At Perkins Energy Conservation, we specialize in removing old insulation from homes across the Dallas metroplex, employing a safe and effective approach.
Our method for removing attic insulation is both safe and efficient. Whether your insulation is outdated, tainted by pests, or buried beneath dirt and debris, we have a solution. We utilize a high-powered insulation removal vacuum with robust suction hoses ranging from 4" to 8" in diameter, connected to a insulation vacuum and large volume insulation removal bag (known as Tough Bags Insulation removal bags) to collect the insulation. We also handle batted insulation in strips or rolls. Rest assured, we dispose of the old insulation properly, preventing any further contamination within your home as we remove the attic insulation.
Why Perform Insulation Removal
Performing attic insulation removal can be necessary for several reasons. Over time, insulation can become less effective due to damage, infestations, or contamination, impacting its ability to regulate temperatures and energy efficiency within your home. Old or compromised insulation can lead to decreased indoor comfort, higher energy bills, and poor indoor air quality. Additionally, aged insulation might contain harmful substances or allergens, posing health risks to occupants. By removing old or damaged attic insulation, you create a clean slate for the installation of new, more efficient insulation. This process significantly improves the thermal efficiency of your home, enhances indoor comfort, reduces energy expenses, and ensures a healthier living environment.
Insulation removal is essential for air sealing the attic floor and spray foaming the roof decking to create a conditioned attic space. Removing the insulation allows access to the entire attic floor, making it easier to pinpoint and seal all potential air leaks between the attic and the living space. It also eliminates the need to "swim around" in insulation hunting for air leaks, which can be time-consuming and challenging. Additionally, removing the old insulation before spray foaming the roof decking ensures that the foam can create an airtight seal around the exterior top plates. Finally, removing the old insulation removes a potential source of dust, mold, and other allergens now that the attic space is connected to the house in a conditioned attic. It is important to note you do NOT want to air seal the attic floor if you are going to create a conditioned attic space with spray foam.
Why Insulation Removal:
- Remove damaged/contaminated insulation
- Reduce allergens & dust entering from the attic
- Fix over insulated/improperly insulated attic
- Allow for complete attic floor air sealing to reduce hot/cold air transfer
- Increase indoor air quality
- Remove old insulation for spray foam attic encapsulation ( conditioned attic )
- Removing old unsafe insulation to replace with a Greenguard Certified insulation (Indoor Air Quality Certified Insulation)
- Home renovation projects
- Remove wet insulation after roof leak, water damage or fire damage
- Rodent Infestation
- Fix or replace electric wires

Is Your Attic Costing You Money?!?!
All it takes is a quick peek to find out! Many older homes have more air leaks and less insulation than homes built today. If your attic floor is insulated but the wood beams (joists) are still visible, you probably don’t have enough attic insulation and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to reach out to us today for a free insulation quote!
