I write blogs fairly often about things you can do yourself to maintain your home and make it more energy efficient. But, there are some things that should be left to a professional. Appliance repair, extensive remodels, and sealing some air leaks. If you experience any of the following issues, make sure to call an expert right away!
- Wet Insulation – this means that your roof is leaking. Your roofing company will be able to find and repair the source of the leak.
- Ice Dams – Recurring ice dams usually mean you have an air leak along your attic-roof line. Sealing this leak will help prevent water damage to your attic and home.
- Water Damage – Moldy and rotten wood signify a moisture problem and this leak has probably been there for a while.
- Ventilation Issues – If you don’t have sufficient attic ventilation, it won’t be able to get rid of excess moisture. If you bathroom or kitchen vents into the attic, this only makes the moisture problem worse and can cause water damage.
If you notice any of these problems, call your certified AC Doctor contractor to find and repair any air leaks.
