#1 Way To Stay Cool This Summer

Thursday, April 14th, 2016 by Danielle Wesbur


When you think about the air in your home, you pay to dehumidify and cool that air. What happens when your home’s insulation fails you? Wasted money and energy! Although we don’t live in the warmest area of this country, our summers are HOT and our winters are COLD. Providing your home with proper insulation will save you money year round. And most importantly, your home will keep the paid air inside! When thinking of getting your insulation replaced, you should focus on 3 main areas of your home.

1. The Attic:

Why is the attic an area of concern? For many, the attic is used for nothing more than storage, but you’re still paying to heat and cool that spot in your home. If your attic is not well insulated, air is likely leaking out through your current insulation. This means, in the peak of our Midwest winters and summers, the heated or cooled air you’re paying for is literally going through the roof!

2. The Basement:

More times than not, when you walk down into a basement its temperature is cooler than the rest of the home. This temp difference may feel good in the summer months but during winter you dread going down there without full snow gear on! Proper insulation can help! Replacing the insulation in your basement can help keep a consistent temperature throughout your home.

3. The Crawlspace:

Your home’s crawl space acts like a vacuum when it comes to sucking air into your home. This process is referred to as the “stack effect.” Basically, the crawlspace lets new air into your home which pushes out “paid” air through the upper levels of the home. How can you keep the air you pay for? The best solution is replacing or adding insulation in the crawl space area of your home.
