Insulating Your Home Really Matters

Apr 30, 2013 by

You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to know that heat always makes its way into your home during the hot summer months. Your home can become unbearably hot in the thick of the summer. Insulation is no longer just important in the winter. Having your home properly sealed and insulated does make a difference, even in the summer!

Valuable energy and dollars are wasted in the summer months due to poorly sealed and insulated homes. The insulation that is installed in the home during construction is very minimal, and therefore, most homes are under-insulated. Just because you can see the pink fluffy stuff sticking out of certain areas in the attic, does not mean your home is adequately insulated, nor will the minimal insulation do the job it was meant to do.

In the winter, your home will be drafty and cold and in the summer, there will be rooms of your home that become so unbearable, you will end up closing them off. Having the entire home properly sealed is one of the easier and best ways to save energy and improve comfort. Sealing and insulating go hand-in-hand, and it is important to seal any leaks before upgrading your home’s insulation.

Of course you can check your home for air leaks and insulate it yourself, however, are you truly equipped to do the job?
