Fall is the best time to insulate your home
As that chill cools the air in early October, you may begin to think of many things; the sound of crisp fallen leaves under your boots, the scent of a bonfire, or a blanket wrapped around you.
It’s likely you won’t think about your home’s insulation. Fall is not only the perfect time to enjoy pumpkin spice; it’s also the perfect time to update your insulation.
You should insulate your home during the fall for these reasons:
Weather conditions are mild and cool
If you want to install new insulation or update your existing insulation, you should start with your attic. During the summer heat, temperatures in your attic can reach 100 degrees, which can make insulation work difficult and dangerous. Fall brings cooler temperatures, which makes working safer and easier.
A drier climate
Fall brings cooler weather as well as drier air that is crucial for installing insulation. Imagine you are adding a new layer of insulation to a moist environment. This may cause your insulation to be less effective and even cause mold or mildew issues.
You’ll Have Everything You Need for Winter
Insulation works best in the winter, so installing your insulation before the winter sets in will result in a warmer, more cost-effective home. Additionally, freezing temperatures can cause havoc on plumbing, so insulate your home before winter to avoid burst pipes and thousands of dollars in damage.
It will save you more money
By installing new insulation in the fall, you will be able to keep more heat inside and keep the cold out, thus saving you money on winter heating bills.
Getting my home’s insulation updated can save me a lot of money.
It has been reported by the EPA that homeowners who seal and insulate their homes save about 15% on their utility bills. After factoring in lifetime energy savings, most insulation upgrades more than cover themselves after investing in insulation.
What are some signs that I need to update my home’s insulation?
Have you just finished a summer remodel? Prior to the winter, you’ll want to make sure the house is properly insulated. Are your monthly energy bills getting higher? It may be time to upgrade. In order to figure out if you need to update your home’s insulation, you can start by seeing if your home feels drafty or if you have high energy bills.
