Prepping your home for spring: what you need to know
With every change in season should come appropriate home preparation! When we expect winter, we winterize and for the summer, controlling your energy bills becomes the main objective. But with spring approaching, what is there to do for your home exactly? With the last lingering remnants of winter, it’s not only time to assess your home’s winter performance (or lack of) but also prepare for some unlikely spring culprits.
Here’s what you need to keep in mind when prepping your home for Spring!
Stop allergies before they even begin
For those who suffer from seasonal allergies, the end of winter can bring mixed feelings. On one hand, you’re grateful for no more frozen toes and fingers, shoveling snow or dealing with frozen pipes in your home. On the other, you know that soon your allergies will be making you miserable thanks to the bloom of spring. Here’s where USA Insulation can help. By insulating the walls of your home with our USA Premium Foam® Insulation, you can create an allergy-resistant shield around your home!
Assess your roof
Now that winter has retreated, it would be wise to assess key parts of your home like the roof. If heavy snowfall was your norm during winter, a close inspection of your roof may reveal some damage. Some key signs to look for are cracks and faults throughout the structure and if found, you should call a professional to help assess the damage. While evaluating the roof, it would also be wise to take a look at your gutters. If the roof and gutter failed to perform properly, water damage could be present in both the attic and crawl space. Yikes!
Check for water or mold damage
When spring comes around, the last thing homeowners think about is taking a look at their least favorite (but very necessary) parts of their homes: the attic and crawl space. After winter, these areas within the home are most likely to be affected by water damage. And wherever there’s moisture, there may also be mold. If that happens to be the case, insulating and air sealing your home can prevent future water and mold damage.
Increase your home’s energy efficiency
Spring often signals the feeling of new beginnings and by taking advantage of those good feelings, you can get a head start on increasing your home’s energy efficiency for the rest of the year! Make an appointment with our insulation experts and we’ll pinpoint your home’s trouble areas and provide the best possible solutions to increase your homes energy efficiency. As a result, you can expect dramatically reduced energy bills and of course, increased comfort for you and your family.
