One of the secrets to an effective residential roofing system is insulation. Proper insulation keeps a number of problems away, including energy wastage, indoor discomfort and mold growth.
Spring is the perfect time to improve your home’s insulation, whether it’s in your roofing system or in other components of your home. Here are the reasons to inspect and improve your insulation during springtime:
It’s Easier for Workers
When you hire a contractor to improve your insulation, it’s much more difficult for the workers to do it during the searing heat of summer or the freezing cold of winter. In the spring, when temperatures are typically moderate, it’s more comfortable for workers. Delays can also be avoided.
You Can Prepare Your Home for Summer
Summer is great for trips to the beach and other fun outdoor activities, but it can also lead to an uncomfortable home if your conditioned air keeps escaping, and the heat from outside keeps entering. You might be forced to use higher levels of cooling with your HVAC just to keep your home comfortable. If you improve your insulation during the spring season, your home will be much more comfortable come summertime.
It’s a Project You Can Start With Others
Planning to replace your residential siding? It’s a good idea to consider adding more insulation by choosing insulated siding. Spring is the best time to do this as well.
As spring is the season after winter, it’s also a time to have your roof inspected and maintained. You also have the opportunity to add more blown-in insulation to your attic for better energy efficiency and comfort.
It Can Boost Energy Efficiency
When you use the highest settings for cooling or heating because of air leaks, drafts and heat transfer, you use more energy. The more energy you use, the more you have to pay, and the bigger your carbon footprint becomes. By adding insulation in the spring, you can prevent these issues.
