Proper insulation might not top your list of summer preparation – at best, you still prioritize it (if at all) far behind installing the air conditioners, checking the grill’s propane tank, and finding your swimsuit from last year. However, insulation is a vital part of keeping your home cool in the summer.
Here’s a quick rundown from our professionals here at Dolphin Insulation.
- Insulation matters: Insulation is all about keeping the comfortable air in and the uncomfortable air out. It doesn’t matter whether you’re trying to keep the house warm in winter or cool in summer — you’ll never get comfortable with bad insulation. That’s why it’s so important to consider insulation when preparing for the hot summer months — insulation keeps the stifling heat outside your home and holds the cold air inside.
- Your house is constantly collecting heat: Naturally, your roof absorbs the most sunlight of any part of the house. This constant exposure turns the attic into a virtual sauna, and without good insulation, that heat will escape to the rest of your house.
- We can help: A professional can conduct an energy audit to best figure out what a house needs. Whether it’s better air sealing, insulation, or a new air conditioner, a professional can figure it out and install anything your home needs to keep you comfortable.
