Alexandrine Parakeet Pulling out feathers?

My alexandrine parakeet is pulling out his feathers on his chest and feathers on his back. We've had him for over a year, he's 3 years old, and he just started pulling out feathers a day or two ago. The only thing that's changed is that we moved his cage from the living room downstairs to the office upstairs. Could it be that the environment change has him stressed out? Or is he just molting?
