Although St. Patrick’s Day comes around next month, it isn’t a good idea to leave the comfort of your family to luck! The month of March is somewhat transitional when it comes to temperatures; it could be uncomfortably cold one day and 85 degrees the next. Even if your Austin-area home is insulated, you might want to consider reinsulating.
A poorly insulated home has lots of risks
Whether the heater or air conditioner is running, your family won’t feel comfortable as the heated or cooled air escapes through the attic and walls. Not only that, your HVAC system will likely run non-stop which means high energy bills. When temperatures fluctuate wildly from cold to warm and vice versa, a home that’s poorly insulated could be at risk of wood damage such as warping caused by constant contracting and expanding. Mold growth is another issue – and one that can make your family sick.
Control your family’s comfort by reinsulating with spray foam
If your home was built prior to 1980, it may have little or no insulation. Even newer homes may not have quality, sufficient insulation in the attic, walls and other areas. By filling the walls with spray foam insulation a barrier is created between your indoor living spaces and the unpredictable weather outside all year long. When scorching hot temperatures roll around this summer your family will enjoy cool, consistent comfort indoors; when it’s freezing outside in winter, you’ll bask in warmth.
Save a bundle on heating and cooling costs
High quality insulation installed by a professional will make a difference you’ll notice when your energy bill arrives each month. Your furnace and air conditioner won’t have to run constantly to keep you comfortable, saving wear and tear on your HVAC system and extending its lifespan.
Imagine saving on energy costs each month while enjoying a comfortable home at the same time! Without quality insulation that’s properly installed, your home simply can’t operate as efficiently as it should. Considering your home is your biggest and most important investment, isn’t it worth upgrading?
