Everyone knows that insulation is key to helping keep you and your family warm and cozy throughout the cold winter months, but not everyone knows it’s an important tool that can help keep you cool in the summer months. Spring is a great time of year to get your home ready for energy savings throughout the summer.
Improving your home’s insulation is one of the most effective ways to save energy. Focusing your attention on insulating your attic, improving ventilation in your attic, and improving insulation in your home’s walls will not only improve the temperature in your home during the hot summer months, but will also dramatically reduce your energy bill.
Here are 5 reasons why you should insulate your home this summer:
Insulation in the walls and attic prevent outdoor heat from entering your home.
Attic insulation creates a barrier between the sun and roof and your home. Without adequate insulation, the sun heats your attic and will allow sweltering temperatures to seep into your home.
Insulation reduces trapped heat in your attic, allowing you to decrease your air conditioning system usage.
Lack of proper insulation can lead to high levels of moisture in the air, which can eventually lead mould growth.
Decreased use of your air conditioning system not only saves you money, but also contributes to a quieter environment. Insulation can also act as a sound barrier between you and the outdoors.
Since heat naturally moves from warm to cold, the outside temperatures are drawn into the interior of your home. Without an insulated barrier between your home and the outdoors, your air conditioner will have to work harder to keep your home cool. This has a direct impact on your energy bills.
“Heating and cooling your home uses more energy and costs more money than any other system in your home -- typically making up about 48% of your utility bill.”- U.S Department of Energy
