Many homeowners consider insulating their homes a chore that should be done to prepare for colder weather, not during the summer months. But, according to the ENERGY STAR web site, insulation keeps homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer. When correctly installed, insulation can deliver comfort and lower energy bills during both the hottest and coldest times of the year. So right now, with the scorching summer heat affecting much of the country, is actually the perfect time to install insulation.
To get the biggest savings, the easiest place to add insulation is usually in the attic, states the ENERGY STAR web site. Attics can get unbearably hot during the summer months which, in turn, affects the rooms in the home below and causes air conditioning units to run more. Installing reflective insulation in attics is an excellent way to prevent heat buildup—and the resulting increase in cooling costs—from occurring.
