Insulate Your Home - It's the Cool Thing to do This Summer
The good news is that we had a mild winter for the most part. The not so good news is that if you can't already tell, this summer is likely to be a hot one! So don't wait until you're suffering in a house that could double as a sauna...now is the time to invest in proper home insulation to ensure you stay cool, calm and collected.
Now, we know what you're thinking. Updating your home with new decorations and accessories sounds a lot more exciting than upgrading your insulation. However, you'd be surprised how much you can save and what a large impact it can make - especially during the summer.
Insulation Insight: Contrary to popular belief, insulation isn't just important to have during the colder months. In the same way it helps to prevent heat from escaping through the walls, it keeps cool air in during the inevitable heat waves.
In the warmer months, heat looks to find its way into cooler places - like your air conditioned home. Without the proper insulation, the heat will move through the walls, leading to higher cooling bills and a lower level of comfort for you and your family.
Don't sweat it. We have a solution.
USA Insulation offers our proprietary injection foam that is known to be one of the most effective options. Other types of insulation tend to settle over time, which decreases the level of efficiency and ultimately lowers the amount of money you are actually saving. With injection foam you have the following benefits:
Fast and effective. The foam solidifies in a matter of minutes so, unlike alternative insulation materials, it won't settle over time.
No gaps. The liquid foam is pumped into walls during installation, filling in the open spaces.
Increased energy efficiency. It creates a seal in your home's exterior that reduces air infiltration.
Another perk of using injection foam is that it can be used to improve the insulation in older or existing homes. Don't worry - no walls will be torn down. In fact, it is minimally invasive and can be installed in homes with brick, stone, stucco, shingles or siding from the outside of the home. The takeaway here is that it's never too late to insulate!
Your A/C unit will thank you.
Poor insulation means the air conditioning will have to work overtime to generate cool air that the home can't keep inside. Every minute that the A/C runs unnecessarily is one more minute off the system's lifespan. The air conditioner is manufactured to run a limited number of hours, so working it too hard means it won't last as long.
The result? In addition to overworking your A/C unit and spending money on inevitable maintenance and repairs, you won't be happy when you get the cooling bill. With the proper insulation, summer doesn't have to include bracing yourself for these additional expenses.
According to Home Advisor, having the proper insulation can save you as much as $500 a year in energy costs. When the average monthly electric bill is coming in at around $110¹, that's a significant amount of cash going back into your pocket. So what are you waiting for?
