Insulation is essential in winter, to keep heat inside your home. But what about summer? When the weather is warm, insulation can still help keep your home comfortable and save you energy.
Here's a look at the importance of summer insulation.
It's important that your HVAC system maintain good airflow. Too little air from your A/C, and you risk freezing the condenser coil. Too much can lead to high humidity levels. And both problems waste lots of energy. So how can you tell if you have poor HVAC airflow? What can you do about it?
In the spring, wildlife and insects usually awaken from their winter slumbers. Their search for food, water, and shelter can lead them into your home. If left unchecked, small pest populations can grow into full-blown infestations, making you require professional bug removal services.
Besides the mechanical condition of the unit itself, nothing affects HVAC efficiency more than the insulation levels in your home’s envelope and ductwork. Without enough insulation, heat can move quickly indoors or out, which will cost you in higher energy bills year-round.
