The fiberglass batts were installed very poorly. Insulation only works when it is in contact with the surface you are trying to insulate. Gaps and holes like this allow for airflow to travel through freely, causing you to pay more money for heating or cooling your home!
Gaps in insulation like these are doorways for unwanted airflow, moisture and pests to get in. Protect your biggest investment from damage by properly insulating your attic.
Discoloration is present in the insulation near the duct. This area shows where warm air leaks out all winter and cold air leaks out into the hot attic all summer. This can make cooling and heating the home very expensive for the homeowner!
