Beat Summer Heat – Insulate! Here's How.

Many homeowners associate home insulation with keeping a home warm during cool weather. As a thermal barrier, insulation does keep a home warm during cool months – and it helps keep your home cool during summer heat. Here’s how it works.

  • The sun heats the surface of your roof, which in turn heats the air inside your attic.
  • The air in your home’s living space is cooler than hot attic air. In an attempt to balance the air, the hot air in the attic moves into your home’s living space.

When a home’s attic is properly insulated and air sealed, warm air stays out of your living space. The result is an HVAC system that runs less which can reduce your monthly energy bills – not to mention your home will be more comfortable!

There’s one added bonus! Upgrading attic insulation will keep your home comfortable all year. This one investment will pay back month after month!
