Insulating Your Home ... During Summer?

Posted by Admin | Wednesday, July 9th

We've all heard about insulating your home in the fall to help with heating costs in the winter. But did you know that insulation can also help keep you cool in the summer? Think about it -- how many of us have visited the attic in the summer only to emerge from a sauna? If your home isn't properly insulated, rather than that heat staying trapped in the attic, it seeps out and makes your entire home warmer. Insulation aids in blocking that flow of heat. While heat escapes in the winter, it flows in during the summer.

Clues Your Home Needs Insulation

  • The age of your home: If it was built in the 1960s or earlier (pretty common in the Northeast), you could likely benefit from added insulation.
  • Inconsistency in temperature: For example, your home may have colder spots in the winter and hot spots -- like the upstairs -- in the summer.
  • Snow melting from your roof in the winter a little faster than your neighbors' or frequent ice dams or icicles.
