Insulation is essential when it comes to keeping your home warm, and if yours was underperforming last winter, you’re probably ready to forget about the cold for a few months and enjoy a nice warm summer. But waiting until next winter to solve your insulation problem isn’t the best idea, and before you put the winter chill out of your mind for good this summer, you should call an insulation company to take a look at your home’s insulation.
Here are three reasons why spring and early summer is a good time to upgrade your insulation:
1. Keep Your Home Cooler This Summer
Insulation works by stopping heat transfer into and out of your home. In the winter, this means keeping the warm air your heating system creates contained inside your home. But in the summer, it means stopping the outside heat from making its way in.
If your insulation wasn’t able to keep your home sufficiently warm last winter, it will also struggle to keep you cool this summer. By replacing your old or damaged attic insulation, basement insulation, and wall insulation this spring, you can stay cool and comfortable all summer long while also making sure your home is ready to face another long, cold winter.
2. Save on Cooling Costs
Without the right amount of insulation, the summer heat will be able to penetrate your home, causing interior temperatures to rise and throwing your air conditioning into overdrive as it tries to make up for the constant influx of heat. As a result, you’ll end up wasting a lot of energy and your electricity bills will skyrocket. By making your insulation installation a priority this spring, you can save energy this summer, leading to lower cooling costs. And, you’ll benefit in the winter too when your heating costs go down.
3. Get an Appointment Before They Book Up
Most people wait until late fall or early winter to have their homes insulated, and that means appointments book up fast! By scheduling your insulation installation in the spring or summer, you can beat the rush and make sure you get an appointment at a convenient time, before it’s too late.
