Many homeowners see their summer energy bills go sky high. If this happens to you, it may be time to upgrade your insulation. Insulation doesn’t just have benefits during winter. Since a home uses energy all year long, energy loss happens just as easily during summer cooling months as winter heating months.
Properly insulating your home’s walls and attic and addressing any air leaks help keep your home comfortable and energy efficient. Air leaks around your home carry heated or cooled air away from your home’s interior. Sealing air leaks prevents conditioned inside air from escaping and hot, humid outside air from entering.
Here are a few ways to know if your home is ready for an insulation upgrade:
- How often your air conditioning system runs. If your system runs frequently, have it checked to be sure it’s working properly. If it is, your home can benefit from upgraded insulation.
- Hot or cold spots inside the home. If areas of your home are hot or cold, this can be a sign of air leaks and insufficient insulation.
- When your home was built. Many older homes were built with little or no insulation.
