It’s barely June, but summer has definitely made its presence known already. Most people have already turned on their air conditioners, and in many cases these units have been running nonstop! It’s hot outside, and in some homes, it’s still hot inside as well. The official start of summer may be just around the corner, but most people would say that it has felt like summer for weeks now.
Virginians are used to having hot summers, but with temperatures increasing every year and the warm weather coming faster, many people are feeling overwhelmed by the heat. Most utilize their AC units and fans but these devices aren’t perfect. How on earth can you keep your home cool without going broke every month?
Spray foam insulation is efficient, inexpensive, safe, and essential for proper home insulation. Without proper insulation your home, the ceilings, windows, doors, floors, and outer walls can let air leak in and out of your house. The amount of air that is escaping is enough to make your home significantly hotter during the summer, and colder during the winter months. New insulation will cool down your house this summer, and make it more energy efficient as well! Saving you thousands of dollars on electricity.
Thorough and complete insulation is important for every house, and it can end up saving home owners a considerable amount of money over time. Energy Star estimates that properly insulating your home could save the average home owner up to 20% on heating and cooling costs, or up to 10% on their total annual energy bill.
