Why Insulation is Just as Important In the Summer

Insulation is just as important in the summer as it is in the winter. This may come as a surprise as many people think of cold, frozen homes when they lack insulation. The reality, however, is that insulation has a huge impact on your ability to keep your home cool in the warm summer months. If your home has an attic, the temperature can reach up to 150 degrees in the summertime. Having a warm attic without having insulation to act as a barrier will result in a hot home or at the very least an extremely costly electrical bill.

An Uninsulated Home is a Hot Home

Even a small amount of hot air making its way into your house from your attic can have an incredible influence on the temperature of your home. Building materials such as wood and drywall soak up heat easily and transfer it through rooms without insulation. Without insulation, heat will leak in from your attic, through your ceiling, and into your living room, causing a major temperature increase.

Older Homes Often Lack Insulation

Many older homes are actually missing insulation or have insulation that is in need of replacement from years of compression. Many owners of older homes believe that an expensive electric bill and an inability to keep a consistent temperature are simply the nature of owning an older home. That doesn’t have to be the case. Installing or replacing insulation can have an incredible impact on your ability to cool your home during the warm summer months. If you are the owner of an older home, contact a professional at Valley Insulation for an inspection of your insulation.

You Will Save Lots of Money in the Long Run

In the grand scheme of things, insulation is a small investment. However, the amount you can save on your energy bill is astounding and makes major savings in the long run. Professionals estimate that proper insulation can save you over 40% off your energy bill compared to an uninsulated home. You will notice these savings all year round. Save big, and invest in your insulation.
