3 Summer Benefits of Home Insulation

Not every day is a walk in the park — but some days will feel like you’re sitting in the park, engulfed in direct sunlight. Whether you have a standard AC unit, a ductless mini-split air conditioner, or a fan — summer is the ultimate moment of truth when testing your home’s cooling features. . But one feature that most forget to mention is insulation: the silent partner within the cooling family. It’s common to believe that insulation only offers heating benefits, but in reality it also cools your home in the summer. Here are some “cool” benefits of home insulation:

Benefit 1: Use Less Energy

Instead of your space becoming too warm or too cool, insulation will adjust your room to a comfortable temperature naturally. With insulation’s regulating powers, it will cut AC usage in half, along with your electric bills!

Benefit 2: Allergen Reduction

Despite it being the summer, allergies are still present. When installing insulation within your home, not only are you regulating the temperature inside, but you’re also blocking outdoor allergens from entering. That’s right: insulation will decrease indoor allergies in addition to saving you money!

Benefit 3: Sound Barrier

When warmer weather arises, so does the noise level within your neighborhood (and within your home). Insulation keeps sound levels to a minimum no matter where you are in your house. If you wanted to host a surprise birthday party, and the guest of honor is walking up to your front door, they won’t be able to hear you telling everyone to be quiet! It’s a win-win for every situation!

 

Of course, there are many other points and methods of insulating that can be utilized to make sure your home’s temperature as comfortable as possible. We are happy to cover all the options with you, at Leslie Heating & Cooling! To learn more, give us a call at 630.621.9419!
