Current insulation standards are far higher than the standard of insulation installed 20 years ago, which was far thinner and much less effective. Old insulation can even become a fire hazard if the fire retardant chemicals in them have disintegrated, which does happen over time. This can also occur if downlights have been installed without proper covers. Rodent retardant chemicals also break down over time, allowing pests to nest in your roof space. In such cases, the existing insulation should be removed and replaced. If you attempt to fit newer, thicker batts on top of old cellulose insulation, the new insulation will result in additional weight on the ceiling and the extra load may become a hazard, making the ceiling unsafe. Removing old insulation, in particular cellulose fibre, can be hazardous when handled incorrectly. Attempting to remove existing insulation yourself will expose you to dust, vermin and allergens, as well as confined spaces and high temperatures for long periods of time.
