2. The current insulation is old and not up to the proper R-value:

Why Does R-Value Matter to Me?
The United States Department of Energy warns homeowners that just 1 in 5 homes constructed prior to 1980 are sufficiently insulated. While homes constructed today are required to meet R-Value standards set by the U.S. Department of Energy, this requirement was not included in building codes prior to the mid-1970s. This means that approximately 80% of homes built before this time need better insulation! If you’re uncertain if your home falls within this category, contact us and our energy experts can help you determine if you’re in need of insulation.
R-value is a measure of resistance to heat flow through a given thickness of material.
3. The current insulation is damaged by a moisture issue:
Once insulation is wet, it is no longer useful. It will lose its R-value. Replacing wet insulation is a must. If you ever have a moisture issue in your crawlspace, call Universal Insulation Doctor for a free insulation inspection to assure your insulation was not at risk.
4. The current insulation was contaminated by a pest infestation:
If you have had a pest infestation, the likelihood of your insulation being contaminated by urine and feces is very high. Remember a significant amount of the air you breathe in your home comes from your crawlspace. Imagine what you and your family is breathing in after that infestation. Universal Insulation Doctor recommends removing the contaminated insulation, then a disinfectant treatment and then installing new insulation.

Sub-Floor Insulation Options and Materials:
Fiberglass is probably the most common material. It’s budget-friendly, and newer products don’t irritate the skin and lungs. Fiberglass insulation is manufactured to slow airflow through the material.
Cellulose is made of recycled paper and it’s treated for fire resistance. The material is packed tightly together to resist airflow.
Rock Wool Insulation
Rock wool (also called mineral or slag wool) is created by spinning or drawing fibers from molten materials to create the insulation.
