One of the biggest concerns homeowners face in the summer months is how to keep cooling costs low without sacrificing comfort. An inexpensive way to do this is to make sure your Wayland area home has adequate attic insulation, whether there’s an accessible attic or a small crawl space.
Everyone understands the importance of attic insulation in the winter, but it’s just as essential in the summer months, since heat from the sun radiates through your roof and into your home. Heat also rises to your attic from other areas of your home. This extensive heat load creates more work for your air conditioner, which can run constantly in an attempt to achieve a comfortable interior climate.
Ensuring that the insulation in your attic is sufficient not only helps keep your house cooler, it also saves money by reducing the wasteful use of your cooling system. Efficient operation also leads to a longer life span for the air conditioner, since it’s working less and running properly.
Along with keeping you and your family comfortable, attic insulation also protects the items you may be storing in the overhead space from unnecessary havoc. Photographs, furniture, documents and other important items can be easily damaged by the hot, humid environment of an under-insulated attic. Ensure that your attic has the recommended levels of insulation to protect your belongings and keep your home comfortable.
