Spring Cleaning: Don’t Forget Your Insulation!

Spring is on the horizon, and so too is spring cleaning! Once winter finally ends, it’s time to scrub your house from head to toe. You need to wash your windows, shampoo your carpet, dust your shelves, clean behind your furniture and the list goes on and on. However, did you ever think your insulation needs some attention too? It’s true! Insulation isn’t just for winter, but it helps to regulate the temperature of your home throughout the year.

Get an Energy Assessment

Insulation works to improve the energy efficiency of your home. If you noticed some sharp spikes in your energy bill when trying to heat your house during the winter, expect a repeat when you kick your A/C on this summer. Instead, get ahead of your bills by scheduling an energy assessment for your home. Home Comfort Insulation can determine what parts of your home aren’t correctly sealed by using a blower door test.

Attack the Attic

We’ll figure out the areas that need the most insulation after an energy assessment. However, one of the best places to insulate to beat the heat is in your attic. The shingles of your roof will absorb heat from the sun and transfer that heat through wood beams and into your attic. With the right insulation, the transfer of heat can be drastically slowed down. While your attic may be warm, the rest of your house will stay cool.

Why Insulate in the Spring?

For the same reasons you would insulate your home before winter hits, you should insulate your house before the beginning of summer. The springtime offers a break from frigid temperatures but doesn’t get too unbearably hot. Not only is this beneficial to your comfort, but it helps those installing your insulation to do so quickly and safely. Once your home is insulated in the spring, you’ll be ready for whatever heat the summer brings.
